WWT's Converged Edge Platform
A single, multi-purpose platform to deliver transformational experiences at the edge.
Converged Edge Platform
Commercialize 4G/5G with a single, unified edge cloud platform that makes it easy for the enterprise to consume new apps and services.
The converged edge can play a key role in a service provider's overall 4G/5G strategy by delivering services and connectivity in support of specific industry verticals.
WWT's Converged Edge Platform (CEP) is a single box that organizations can leverage to deploy 5G-enabled services and apps. CEP utilizes VMware's Telco Cloud Infrastructure to deliver consistent deployment and operations of virtualized and cloud-native network functions regardless of where you deploy them.
Benefits and outcomes
Increase revenues by expanding enterprise solutions market share beyond 4G/5G data plans.
Lower opex by adopting a fully integrated stack that has been pre-validated for a wide array of apps.
Increase agility with a unified cloud management and application deployment layer across network edge and enterprise premises.
Reduce costs with a platform fully supported by OEMs. No need to fix it yourself when something goes wrong.
ISVs and use cases
The Converged Edge Platform automates the deployment of innovative applications and services from independent software vendors (ISVs) that take advantage of the low latency and high bandwidth promised by 5G. Our growing library of pre-validated ISVs can help kickstart your journey to creating value for enterprise end customers.
Validate new edge applications in real places with real people.
Given the competitive market landscape, it is critical service providers identify promising use cases on an industry-by-industry basis. WWT's Innovation Studio helps customers engage with next-generation use cases as they were intended to be experienced.
Extending CEP to the cloud
Telcos have long used large cloud data centers that aggregate central and regional core sites to deploy network services. In a 5G world, they'll have to leverage edge network sites along with private and public clouds to deliver next-gen applications. CEP works along the entire spectrum.

How CEP works
Designed from VMware's Telco Cloud Infrastructure (TCI) Reference Architecture and the VMware Telco Cloud Platform (TCP), WWT's Converged Edge Platform provides network/compute infrastructure solutions as close as possible to end-users in the mobile community.
The Converged Edge Platform will be deployed both in the enterprise and the operator's network, which requires two integration and deployment approaches.
