BitBox USA and EdgeMicro Partner on Distributed Edge

By Ken Briodagh June 24, 2020

BitBox USA and EdgeMicro are reportedly leveraging their continuing partnership to meet the

global surge in internet connectivity needs during the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic. Integrating the BitBox IoT Platform as the unified solution to monitor and manage distributed infrastructure, the partners said, enables EdgeMicro’s micro data centers’ (MDCs) rollout to hundreds of sites in North America and thousands of locations globally.

“BitBox IoT Platform’s high reliability, simple deployment, and multiple physical plant systems monitoring ability was critical in expediting the scaling deployment and management of our micro data centers anywhere,” said Loren Zweig, VP, Operations, EdgeMicro. “The integration allows us to seamlessly make simple or complex physical plant changes and updates to our micro data centers concurrently as we scale, or through a change management process activity, such as adding more UPS equipment, a generator, or additional rack PDUs, whatever it takes to satisfy our customers’ needs.”

The internet's centralized content and peering model (both wired and wireless) is falling short of solving the performance needs of intelligent devices, high-frame-rate video, pattern/people recognition and mixed reality environments, the companies said in a recent release.
