SAN JOSE, CA -- ADLINK Technology, Inc. and Saguna announce a joint Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) solution designed for deployments in harsh outdoor environments. As MEC gains momentum, and new trials and live deployments are underway, the need for robust, no-fault equipment increases. Bringing the Internet closer to users and the things of the IoT requires MEC platforms to be deployed at the edge of the Radio Access Network (RAN), which is often in harsh outdoor environments.
Saguna and ADLINK integrated solution addresses this market need for rugged, outdoor deployments. The joint solution is comprised of Saguna Open-RAN, an advanced and fully virtualized MEC platform, operating on ADLINK's rugged SETO-1000 extreme outdoor server platform designed for extreme conditions. The joint solution is compact, cost-effective and easy-to-install. By co-locating the MEC infrastructure with existing network real estate, mobile operators can reduce costs while delivering new services and improving network performance.
The companies will present their MEC solution with CIMAGINE, a leading augmented reality visualization platform, running on the Saguna Open-RAN MEC platform and ADLINK SETO-1000 at the upcoming Mobile World Congress. The demo will feature CIMAGINE's augmented reality platform, in which furniture shoppers can see exactly how the furniture they want may look placed in their home. It demonstrates how MEC capabilities can drive e-commerce with a superior user experience enhancing personalized online shopping.
