AlefEdge to Support and Enable the PAWR Program for Mobile Edge Development
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–AlefEdge, the Edge Internet leader, today announced its participation in the Platform for Advanced Wireless Research (PAWR) Program. This expansion into the program will bring a distributed Edge Cloud as well as APIs for the next generation of applications across the PAWR Program. PAWR is building outdoor testbed environments for advanced wireless technology trials around the country. As part of its participation, AlefEdge is committing software and expertise to the COSMOS platform in New York City, POWDER-RENEW platform in Salt Lake City, Utah, and the AERPAW platform in the Research Triangle region of North Carolina.
“Edge computing capabilities are vital to these testbeds, and to researchers’ ability to test new wireless applications in 4G networks, 5G, and beyond,” says Joe Kochan, PAWR Program Director and COO, US Ignite. “We’re happy to welcome AlefEdge to the PAWR program and look forward to teaming up at each of the PAWR platform sites.”
PAWR is a $100 million public-private partnership program co-led by US Ignite and Northeastern University and funded by the National Science Foundation and the PAWR Industry Consortium, which consists of some 30 manufacturers, wireless carriers, and academic institutions.
AlefEdge is providing essential software ingredients required for an Edge Economy: an edge gateway, an Edge Cloud and APIs, applying the same principles of today’s cloud environment. AlefEdge enables new application experiences that benefit from the edge and require the edge.
“A distributed, programmable edge will be integral for the future of wireless networks. We are pleased to be providing our software and technical expertise to support and enable the innovation of the COSMOS, POWDER- and AERPAW testbeds,” said CEO and Founder, Dr. Ganesh Sundaram.
