Deutsche Telekom’s MobiledgeX is experimenting with Anthos as part of its mission to help operators build their own edge clouds.
MobiledgeX announced its support of Google Cloud’s Anthos as an additional infrastructure choice for operators, launching an edge-cloud beta programme.
It is also inviting other operators to join the programme – contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Running MobiledgeX Edge-Cloud on Anthos is intended to give operators more choice about how they control their multi-vendor edge cloud infrastructure, and manage applications with greater data sovereignty and more secure applications.
MobiledgeX Edge-Cloud on Anthos provides the same user interface for operators’ infrastructure staff already who already use VMware or OpenStack in infrastructure, and extends to cloudlets in the public cloud.
It provides a policy-based approach to application deployment that includes auto-scale and auto-provision features. It also removes dependency on proprietary security and key management, and provides trust-based policies that ensure data sovereignty.
MobiledgeX Edge-Cloud on Anthos can provide robust application and infrastructure monitoring, notification and metrics using a single management pane.
“MobiledgeX Edge-Cloud gives telco operators the ability to exercise direct control of data on their own networks, and the freedom to choose cloud infrastructure from both private and public cloud providers,” says Sunay Tripathi, CTO and EVP of Product and Engineering for MobiledgeX. “Our partnership with Google gives our telco partners even more flexibility with how they manage their network edge infrastructure.”
“Anthos enables customers to deploy services and applications across multiple environments, including in the cloud, on-premises, and to the network edge,” said Tanuj Raja, Global Head, Strategic Partnerships at Google Cloud.
“The telco edge cloud is here, and MobiledgeX Edge-Cloud software gives operators the freedom to build and manage their own edge clouds and work with hyperscalers on their own terms,” says Dr. Alex Choi, Senior Vice President, Strategy & Technology Innovation at Deutsche Telekom. “MobiledgeX Edge-Cloud running on Anthos gives operators even more options to manage their network edge infrastructure as they choose.”
MobiledgeX has been working with Google Cloud and the Anthos platform since MobiledgeX was named as a horizontal solution provider for Anthos for Telecom in December 2020.
