Singtel to launch 5G mobile edge computing
It will be launched on Microsoft Azure Stack.
Singtel is launching its 5G edge compute infrastructure for enterprises to deliver fast and secure 5G applications, the company announced.
It will include Microsoft Azure Stack as one of the options for the trials that are set to begin this year.
Enterprises will be able to use Singtel’s Multi-access Edge Compute (MEC) infrastructure to process applications such as autonomous guided vehicles, drones, robots as well as virtual, augmented or mixed reality closer to their end-users, and will be able to deliver the applications with low latency.
“Our collaboration places the benefits of 5G and MEC, such as high connection speeds and low latency, in the hands of enterprises, empowering them to use, create, deploy and scale-up new 5G solutions,” said Bill Chang, Singtel chief executive officer of group enterprise.
