EdgeMicro launches Edge connectivity solutions offering

04 December 2020 | Abigail Opiah


EdgeMicro has announced the launch of its enhanced EdgeMicro Connectivity Enablement (ECE) service in response to the changing needs of organisations and businesses operating at the edge.

The company said it is solving an important piece of the edge colocation infrastructure puzzle with a carrier-neutral connectivity enablement strategy.

ECE enables access to local cable operators and multiple lit/dark fibre providers on day one so edge traffic stays local from the start.

"ECE makes tethering and on-ramp connectivity simple and cost effective," says Jason Bourg, Vice President of Sales for EdgeMicro.

"Our Out of Band Management service (OOBM) allows customers to remotely manage their business.

“Combined, ECE and OOBM enable our customers to win at the edge by directly connecting them to local providers, which reduces latency and speeds up service at the local level."

The company also said its customers expect providers to be experienced and capable when solving for the sophisticated connectivity requirements at the edge.

"EdgeMicro's value becomes clear when we combine our real estate and connectivity expertise into a single process," said Laurie Abrahamson, Director of Business Development.

"We've spent years refining our connected sites strategy. EdgeMicro delivers where it counts with the scale and consistency our customers demand."

The launch of the new ECE service augments EdgeMicro's operational sites in Austin, Texas; Raleigh, North Carolina; and Tampa, Florida.

An additional five sites including Cleveland, Indianapolis, Memphis, Houston, and Pittsburg will go live in Q4 2020/Q1 2021, according to the company.
