A key module of the solution, primarily for the telecom ecosystem, provides a complete application suite to enable a secured gig economy around 5G-related services.
The 5G edge services solutions suite integrates various edge computing solutions from IBM. The two companies recently announced a collaboration to develop hybrid cloud offerings to help businesses migrate, manage and transform mission-critical workloads across public or private cloud and on-premises IT environments. The recently launched Wipro IBM Novus Lounge has been designed to accelerate client innovation and bring such industry-ready solutions from public and private clouds to the edge.
“The convergence of 5G and edge computing is set to spark new levels of innovation, and this in turn will fuel a broad ecosystem of providers to co-create for a growing set of edge opportunities. We are excited about the value that Wipro can bring to their clients that require Universal Edge solutions to help extend their enterprise to compute at the edge” Evaristus Mainsah, General Manager, Cloud, Cloud Pak and Edge Ecosystem, IBM said.
