Software applications communicate with one another via APIs. Learn more about APIs and Private Networks More Platform company, announced today the launch of the first edge developer community to accelerate edge technologies and make private wireless networking easy and affordable for all. The community of 5,000 will connect developers globally and enable them to collaborate, share information, and inspire new mobility based apps that solve the connectivity challenges of today’s enterprises.
Enterprises often find the concept 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 too expensive or complex to deploy and are seeking innovative solutions that solve their biggest mobility problems. The Alef Developer Community will educate developers on the benefits of the edge, provide insight into specific use cases, and demonstrate how developers can help enterprises bypass complex and long deployment times that are often associated with traditional mobile operators and Wi-Fi solutions.
“At Alef, we think enterprise first when it comes to providing mobile solutions that solve their biggest connectivity challenges,” said Jeff Tennery, COO of Alef. “With this platform, we’re arming a community of developers with the tools that inspire enterprises to build the next generation of mobility apps.”
The community will train developers on the benefits of using Alef’s Mobility as a Service APIs to provide enterprises with carrier grade connectivity that sits inside the firewall. At a fraction of the cost of traditional hardware oriented solutions, enterprises can create, customize and control their own private mobile network for their most critical applications. Community members can engage fellow developers and will be invited to participate in exclusive events that help solve enterprises’ most vexing connectivity issues.
To help developers experience private mobile networking first hand, Alef has introduced the “Edge Emulator.” This simulation tool is another industry first, and provides a 5G sandbox environment where developers can utilize Alef’s suite of enterprise friendly APIs without having to invest in expensive on-premise hardware.
At Kong Summit in September, Alef was announced as the Top Overall Commercial Innovator winner of Kong’s API Innovator Awards based on real-life use cases in the commercial category.
Reza Shafii, VP of Product at Kong, said, “We selected Alef as a winner because they were able to solve some of the biggest challenges for enterprises when it comes to the adoption of 5G technology. By providing developers with self-service APIs, users achieve access to new technology and a shorter time to market to deploy a private network inside an enterprise firewall.”
