Micorosft Announces Azure Edge Zones; NetFoundry Launches IoT Edge Compute and Private 5G

By Ken Briodagh April 01, 2020

Microsoft recently announced Azure Edge Zones with its partners, including Azure Private Edge Zones. Azure Private Edge Zones are designed to enable application workloads to span edges and clouds with a common Azure experience, APIs, and security.

NetFoundry followed upon that announcement with a new embedded networking solution within the  Azure Edge Zones. This integration, the company said, will allow businesses to tap into the power of edge compute and optional private 5G for use cases like industrial IoT, near-real time video processing, and analytics.

“Azure Private Edge Zones will be a game-changer for application developers, solution providers, and businesses—eliminating the complexity of edge and IoT deployments with a seamless experience and low-latency compute,” said Galeal Zino, NetFoundry Founder & CEO. “We are honored to be selected as one of the 5G, security, and networking providers enabling this ecosystem.”

NetFoundry’s integration facilitates direct connections between businesses and Azure Private Edge Zones without deploying extra network gear. This capability is particularly important at edge sites that lack space, power, and cooling.

“NetFoundry’s addition to our Azure Edge Zones ecosystem helps us ensure businesses can build solutions with secure, private 5G between their devices and the edge, while leveraging end-to-end secure and performant networking,” said Yousef Khalidi, Corporate VP, Microsoft Azure Networking, Microsoft Corp.
