MobiledgeX 3.0 has gone live with new features including improved insights and cloudlet management for operators.

The release comes as mobile operators expand public cloud adoption, private network build outs and global edge initiatives like GSMA Telecom Edge Cloud (TEC) in support of 5G and edge computing pursuits.

Sunay Tripathi, MobiledgeX CTO and EVP of engineering and product, said: “The public clouds are making large investments in technology development and deployments so it is important for mobile network operators to take advantage of these efforts. Our software that overlays in-network edges and public clouds helps operators make important decisions around how those deployments are managed today and will provide critical future flexibility and optionality. It is no coincidence that some of the mobile operators signing public cloud partnerships are also some of the first to be working with us to help manage them.

"MobiledgeX Edge-Cloud 3.0 gives mobile operators full control over how they roll out cloud and edge with an open, cloud-agnostic architecture that offers data visibility and sovereignty that is not available in pure public cloud engagements.”

The new features include "trusted cloulets", improved insights and application and device performance optimisation.

The release of MobiledgeX Edge-Cloud 3.0 followed the launch of the company’s beta programme for orchestrating edge computing workloads on Google Cloud’s Anthos and expands capabilities of the company’s key role supporting the GSMA TEC initiative with more than 20 global mobile operators. It is also set to enhance a range of end-to-end use cases launched over the past year with operators and partners that include British Telecom, Deutsche Telekom, Niantic, NTT Docomo, Samsung, Telefonica and others.

Founded by Deutsche Telekom AG in 2017, MobiledgeX is an edge computing company headquartered in San Jose, California.
