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.

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.
