Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Pivot Innovation as Industry Leader In Delivering World-Class Enterprise Solutions
IRVINE, CA, Feb. 26, 2019 /CNW/ - Smart-Edge.com, Inc. ("Smart Edge") today announced it has won the prestigious Frost & Sullivan Technology Innovation Award for its advanced development platform for multi-access edge computing ("MEC").
The award is based on Frost & Sullivan's in-depth analysis of the global edge computing market and in recognition of Smart Edge's industry leadership in enabling reliable and deterministic access to enterprise applications at the network's edge.
"We're honored to be acknowledged by Frost & Sullivan for accelerating the network's transformation at the edge," said Bob Pike, Chief Executive Officer of Smart Edge. "Enterprises are seeking innovative ways to create new revenue streams and differentiate themselves from their competitors. At Smart Edge, we are dedicated to providing enterprise customers with a new way of processing data that reduces latency to enable real-time insights and responses."
Frost & Sullivan's ongoing research shows that current solutions that depend on high-cost data centers and outdated cloud models are not built to handle the volume, velocity and variety of data produced and utilized by Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Several industries, including retail, manufacturing and healthcare, are seeking new computing models that can minimize the latency in transferring and processing data in real time. Smart Edge is leading the initiative to provide enterprises with a more intelligent data platform that brings computing and applications closer to the user.
"Smart Edge has pioneered a cutting-edge approach in offering virtualized multi-access edge computing platform at the edge of network, bringing new levels of performance and access to mobile, wireless and wired networks," said Naga Avinash, Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. "Smart Edge's MEC enables real-time, high-bandwidth, security-enabled low-latency access to latency-dependent applications across various industries such as retail, telecom, media and enterprise companies."
Built on high-performing Intel® scalable processors, Smart Edge's application environment enables new opportunities and revenue streams for operators, while reducing ongoing edge total cost of ownership (TCO). For more information, please visit https://smart-edge.com/.
