Wipro Limited, a leading global IT consulting and business process services firm, will launch its 5G edge services solutions suite. The solutions suite is built with IBM TRIRIGA and IBM Edge Application Manager and to be provided by Wipro.
Wipro will engage with its clients to implement the Universal Edge solutions suite that leverages 5G network capabilities.
The 5G edge services solutions suite is developed to enhance Wipro’s existing BoundaryLess Enterprise – Universal Edge portfolio. The edge-compute-enabled offering enables communications service providers and mobile tower operators to use their applications into dispersed edge devices. The advanced AI and cloud-based services address the challenges of edge computing. It gives real-time clarity and insights that help enable holistic management of edge infrastructure for mission-critical applications in the manufacturing, transport, healthcare, oil & gas, and retail sectors.
This solution will also allow Wipro customers to efficiently data controlling, reduced costs, quicker insights, and actions, and more automated, secured operations. A vital module of the solution, initially for the telecom ecosystem, gives a complete application suite to allow a secured gig economy around 5G-related services.
Wipro is connecting the IBM Edge Ecosystem, an initiative to encourage partners to implement open standards-based cloud-native solutions that can be used and autonomously control edge applications at big scale. Wipro’s solutions jointly with IBM Edge Application Manager and TRIRIGA are expected to address a range of concerns about using and operating worldwide distributed services on devices, private edges, and telecom operator’s Multi-Access Edges.
The 5G edge services solutions suite combines various edge computing solutions from IBM. The two organizations recently join hands to develop hybrid cloud offerings to help companies migrate, manage, and transform mission-critical workloads over public or private cloud and on-premises IT environments.
Evaristus Mainsah, General Manager, Cloud, Cloud Pak and Edge Ecosystem, IBM said, “The convergence of 5G and edge computing is set to spark new levels of innovation, and this in turn will fuel a broad ecosystem of providers to co-create for a growing set of edge opportunities.
