So how much power does your edge really need?
It’s no secret that organizations are constantly looking for ways to both optimize their operations AND keep costs in check. Remember those basic connectivity needs we talked about? Well, one way to significantly reduce your Total Cost of Ownership, lies in optimizing your basic connectivity. And when the network functions that control that basic connectivity are placed at the edge – well, that’s precisely the right time to really evaluate exactly how much power your edge really needs. Harnessing the potential of an edge computing management platform that not only optimizes the essential network functions, but also integrates them – well that’s a game changer that can really help with your TCO goals. Added bonus? Seamless connectivity.
Wait, again with the network functions?
All you need and ONLY what you need
Basic connectivity – but integrated
Tailor made for YOUR edge
So, let’s go back to those heavy, traditional, legacy environments that we talked about in the beginning, and to the traditional legacy vendors that supply them. While network architectures have developed and modernized, and technologies have evolved, suppliers of network equipment such as Cisco, Juniper and others are still pushing dedicated boxes with fully featured network functions, all the way to the edge. But smart and nimble is the name of the game today – for operators, service providers as well as enterprises, and for the vendors that supply them – because why deal with bundling, deploying, managing and maintaining super-charged, over-priced dedicated boxes, when you can get a platform that simplifies your edge, AND integrates your devices with network functions that provide everything you need at the edge (but only what you REALLY need).
