This award strengthens our partnership with Intel, while also furthering our progress towards simplifying the implementation of private edge networks.
Why is this award important?
The Intel® Network Builders Winners’ Circle seeks to accelerate technical innovation and network transformation.
As the world continues to become more connected through smart devices, the benefits of edge computing and 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 will become vital to the operations of our educational facilities, cities, workspaces, healthcare and more. However, implementing 5G through the traditional carriers is complicated, expensive and hard to deploy. This route leaves many companies unable to tap into the benefits of 5G due to geography or financial constraints.
Alef’s platform empowers businesses and developers to affordably control their own 5G mobile networks. We are pleased to offer the first open and accessible platform for companies to unlock the power of the mobile edge.
What is Alef’s Private Edge Platform?
Alef is a software company that unlocks the power of 5G. The benefits of edge computing include added security, low latencyTime required to send data over two points in a network. More, a secure local breakout, and improved control and time to deployment. Alef offers a first-of-its-kind Private Edge Platform where enterprises can affordably control and own their private mobile network – removing many of the pain points associated with deployment through traditional carriers, including lengthy deployment times. Enterprises can activate their own private network within minutes and gain control of their network at a fraction of the cost due to Alef’s near-prem solution.
While enterprises, organizations and developers stand to benefit from private edge networks, part of its true value lies in its accessibility in critical industries. Such industries include educational facilities, healthcare environments, subsidized housing, government institutions and more. Launching a private edge network allows these industries to take advantage of all 5G has to offer by giving them the opportunity to deploy a cost-effective, secure network within minutes.
The Alef Team is proud to be recognized as an industry leader, and to have been awarded Gold Level by Intel Network Builders Winners’ Circle for our Alef Private Edge Platform and Edge Connect API. We are committed to continuing to work in collaboration to accelerate technical innovation and network transformation.
