Alefedge And New Continuum Data Centers Announce Edge Applications And Services In Chicago

By Ken Briodagh April 26, 2019

According to a recent release, AlefEdge, Edge provider, and New Continuum Data Centers have teamed up on a way for greater Chicago regional network operators and application providers to deliver wireless services.

The deployment of Alef’s solution at New Continuum is designed to enable Chicago region operators to offer next generation Edge Internet services, the companies said. Based in New Continuum’s West Chicago NAP data center, Alef’s edge application suite is immediately available to the surrounding communities. To facilitate better understanding of the combined solution, the companies also announced a permanent showcase of the combined service offering.

“With New Continuum’s world-class connectivity through United Internet Exchange and Alef’s Edge solution, we’ve created compelling new opportunities for carriers, with new applications and services—IoT, IIoT, Edge Gaming, Edge Streaming, Autonomous Vehicles and more,” said Ganesh Sundaram, CEO, AlefEdge. “By demonstrating Alef’s live deployment of edge computing, edge clouds and edge applications at New Continuum, we provide further proof that the Edge Internet can be deployed anywhere and with easy integration, enabling regional carriers to quickly roll out new data-intensive, low-latency services.”

New Continuum, through its creation of United Internet Exchange, hosts the traffic of regional network operators and large application providers to help route Internet traffic in the Midwest. Further, New Continuum’s West Chicago data center is geographically diverse from legacy downtown fiber convergence and traffic exchange points. By providing a high density data center, New Continuum provides what it thinks is the ideal location for the edge computing deployments of wireless carriers.

“I am extremely excited to announce this partnership,” says Eli D. Scher, founder and CEO, New Continuum. “We are constantly seeking to form partnerships with truly innovative companies offering complementary services in order to deliver value to our customers, and Alef is an example of our ideal partner. By integrating our products, rural and regional fixed-line and wireless-service providers can now deliver 5G services on existing infrastructure. This immediate edge compute use case saves both capital and reduces latency, delivering clear value to our mutual customers.”
