Your business is able to respond in milliseconds, as your data can be captured locally without crossing the network. This means no time lost in transferring data, with sensors and devices acting in milliseconds, opening up new possibilities.
As your workloads will be run at the edge of the network, analysing and holding data won’t result in depleted device battery life or growing costs, which can sometimes happen when sending data over the network to the cloud.
With decision-making happening at the edge, your most important data can be prioritised when bandwidth is in high demand, putting you in control. Less critical data can be streamed to the cloud at quieter times, leading to enhanced performance.
We can offer truly local processing of your data from the get-go, as the geographic spread of our fixed and mobile networks means MEC systems can be installed quickly on your existing premises.
Place computing power where it’s needed and choose the right cloud to run your workloads at the right time, depending on your specific requirements.
From collaborating with AWS to bring Distributed MEC closer to customers, to working in partnership with Microsoft to combine our 5G and mobile private networks with Azure Private Edge Zones. Vodafone Business is a multicloud platform and services provider with expertise across all major cloud players globally, such as AWS, Microsoft, Google, IBM and Alibaba.
Dedicated Edge is built solely for your business. We can deploy Dedicated Edge at your site along with a Mobile Private Network, which provides secure dedicated connectivity for your business. With Dedicated Edge, your data will be stored locally, enabling applications that depend on minimal delay to work. This can open up new possibilities for your business within sites that previously couldn’t be connected.
Distributed Edge supports multiple businesses and is embedded at the edge of a public 4G or 5G network, meaning less of an investment in network infrastructure is needed. This type of Edge is especially useful when moving assets, such as self-driving vehicles, need to be connected and analyse data in a matter of milliseconds. By embedding computing and storage services at the edge of the network, you’ll be able to run applications with almost no delay, meaning almost real-time decision-making.
