The edge-compute-enabled offering allows communications service providers and mobile tower operators to deploy their applications into dispersed edge devices, said the company in a press release.
While the advanced artificial intelligence and cloud-based services address the challenges of edge computing; it provides real-time visibility and data insights that help enable holistic management of edge infrastructure for mission critical applications in manufacturing, transport, healthcare, oil and gas and retail industries among others, said Wipro.
Wipro is joining the IBM Edge Ecosystem, an initiative to help partners implement open standards-based cloud native solutions that can be deployed and autonomously manage edge applications at large scale.
The Indian IT services company’s solutions combined with IBM Edge Application Manager and TRIRIGA is expected to address a range of concerns related to deploying and managing globally distributed services on devices, private edges and telecom operator’s Multi Access Edges.
“Our strong telecommunication domain capabilities coupled with leadership in cloud and infrastructure lifecycle and investment in the Wipro IBM Novus Lounge equips us well to deliver these industry-specific solutions. We are confident that this will enable efficient deployment and management of infrastructure with 5G and Edge for our customers in the telecommunications, manufacturing, oil and gas and retail industries,” K R Sanjiv, chief technology officer, Wipro, was quoted saying.
