AT&T has teamed up with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to help accelerate business adoption of edge connections and edge computing.
The companies are forming a go-to-market programme which uses AT&T’s Multi-access Edge Compute (MEC) services as well as HPE’s Edgeline Converged Systems solution.
Mo Katibeh, Chief Marketing Officer at AT&T Business, said that “AT&T's software-defined network, including our 5G network, combined with HPE's intelligent edge infrastructure can give businesses a flexible tool to better analyze data and process low-latency, high-bandwidth applications.
He added: "Bringing compute power closer to our network helps businesses push the boundaries of what is possible and create innovative new solutions."
By increasing capacity for data at the edge, HTE believes that businesses will be able to better utilise innovations such as the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning and augmented reality.
"HPE believes that the enterprise of the future will need to be edge-centric, cloud-enabled and data-driven to turn all of its data into action and value," noted Jim Jackson, Chief Marketing Officer, HPE.
"Our go-to-market alliance with AT&T, using HPE Edgeline Converged Edge Systems, will help deliver AT&T MEC services at scale to help our customers more quickly convert data into actionable intelligence, enabling unique digital experiences and smarter operations."
