AlefEdge Accelerates Global Expansion with The Manhattan Project; Expands International Deployments to Bring Edge Internet to the U.S.
Edge Internet Leader Brings the Benefits of the Edge Economy to
Boston, Chicago and Manhattan Metropolitan Areas
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–AlefEdge,
the Edge Internet leader, today announced the U.S. launch of The
Manhattan Project, a new opportunity for application providers, carriers
and tower companies that focuses on open edge Internet deployment
worldwide in smart retail, smart travel and other immersive and
ultra-low-latency consumer facing applications. With initial U.S.
deployments in Boston, Chicago and Manhattan metropolitan areas, The
Manhattan Project leverages the benefits of the Edge Internet by
bringing together the power of connectivity, applications and
application programming interface (API)—the three essential software
layers required for an edge economy.
“In April 2018, we went live with The
Manhattan Project in Asia as the first successful edge computing
deployment worldwide,” says Mike Mulica, Executive Chairman and Board
Member of AlefEdge. “In 2019, we repeat the unit-of-one model in North
America. Working at the edge, whether that be the tower edge, metro edge
or the operator edge, we collectively construct monetizable and friendly
business models for the entire edge economy. By building an open edge
Internet with diverse partnerships, we have the ability to transform the
industry in a way that the entire ecosystem wins—without waiting.”
The Manhattan Project, built on an open platform in live real-world
deployments across the globe, brings connectivity and computing together
at the edge to provide the bridge between the application developers and
networks. In previous deployments, moving streaming and advertising
applications to the edge not only reduced churn and increased
performance but also created a more engaging experience resulting in
exponentially larger numbers of clicks per campaign and users watching
“The edge will impact every industry in profound ways,” says AlefEdge
Founder and CEO Ganesh Sundaram. “We have positioned ourselves at the
nexus of the three critical pieces required for the edge: the network,
applications and edge cloud locations. Our Open5G Platform creates
opportunities for industry verticals to innovate on 5G today, with our
software stack the key to unlocking the edge!”
With AlefEdge, application providers have new choices in edge locations
to host their applications outside of the cloud. Beginning summer of
2019, application providers will be able to host their applications on
the AlefEdge Open5G Platform at the edge of the network.
