AlefEdge, the Edge Internet leader, today announced the company has entered into a partnership with EdgePresence, an owner and operator of ready-to-deploy, purpose-built Edge data centers, to expand the strategic and rapid rollout of EdgeNet, AlefEdge’s compute and delivery network, across the U.S. The EdgePresence data centers will serve as the sites for consumption of enterprise applications and traffic.
“In order to accelerate Edge capabilities, an ecosystem is needed to provide enterprises and developers with the tools, infrastructure and connectivity to start building services and applications today,” says AlefEdge CEO and Founder Ganesh Sundaram. “EdgePresence has developed a highly efficient Edge data center solution and is actively deploying these data center capabilities nationally, which aligns perfectly with our vision and strategy for expanding the Edge Internet and advancing adoption.”
EdgePresence’s modular and scalable solution can deploy a state-of-the-art network of edge data centers without the added capital expense and operating complexity typically associated with critical infrastructure buildouts. Each purpose-built Edge data center is easy to build and operate, making it possible to quickly densify and expand networks, allowing applications to be deployed within at least 12 miles of an end user. Deploying AlefEdge’s Software-Defined Mobile Edge (SD-MESoftware Defined Mobile Edge - Mobile edge service that is controlled and defined by software. More) platform in EdgePresence’s data centers will allow AlefEdge to deliver Edge services rapidly across the U.S.
As enterprise programmers and application developers design cutting-edge 5G-style applications using AlefEdge’s SD-ME platform, they will be able to instantly consume their high-bandwidth, ultra-low latencyTime required to send data over two points in a network. More and truly mobile applications in EdgePresence data centers. This allows them to keep their data local and secure. AlefEdge, in collaboration with EdgePresence, is planning to deploy in hundreds of locations across the U.S., ranging from enterprise sites, cell towers and key real estate locations.
“EdgePresence is excited to partner with AlefEdge to support businesses, developers and networks as they work together towards the next wave of digital transformation,” says Doug Recker, Founder and President of EdgePresence. “As immersive video and mobile IoTInternet of Things - Physical objects with the ability to connect and exchange data with each other over the Internet. A network of objects that are embedded with sensors, processing ability, software, to connect to and exchange data with other such objects or networks. More usage increases alongside the release of 5GThe “G” in 5G stands for generation. 5G is the fifth generation of wireless technology. 5G is characterized by bigger channels (which improves throughput), lower latencies allowing for real time applications, and the ability to connect more devices (which is increasingly important as the number of devices has grown exponentially). More nationwide, EdgePresence supports the rapidly growing need for this data to be located and accessed at the Edge of the network.”

EdgePresence, an owner and operator of multi-tenant, edge computing points-of-presence (PoPs), providing space, power, bandwidthBandwidth is the maximum rate of data transfer across a given path. Bandwidth may be characterized as network bandwidth, data bandwidth, or digital bandwidth. It generally refers to the size of the pipe and the speed that carries the data back and forth, not necessarily the volume of traffic that passes through. More, and interconnection, is currently deploying its edge data centers (EDCs) across 20 markets throughout the U.S. Edge Data Centers are purpose-built edge micro data centers, comprehensively and compactly designed to include critical power, distribution, physical security and cooling. EDCs are anchored at the base of cell towers, key real estate, and enterprise campus locations enabling us to deploy within 12 miles from end users. This can be called the “far edge.” EdgePresence is serving as a turnkey solution for businesses looking to implement a flexible and dynamic edge computeA distributed computing paradigm that brings computation and data storage closer to the sources of data. This is expected to improve response times and save bandwidth. It is an architecture rather than a specific technology. It is a topology- and location-sensitive form of distributed computing. Alef uses edge computing concepts to offer MNaaS. (Mobile Network as a Service) More strategy, nationally. Along with its Cell Tower partners, EdgePresence will build, deploy and operate hundreds of micro edge data centers across the United States with initial markets in Jacksonville, FL, Austin, TX, Pittsburgh, PA, Statesboro, GA, Denver, CO, Atlanta, GA, Boulder, CO and Greenville, SC.
