Edge infrastructure firm Ori Industries is working alongside streaming analytics company KX to create an ultra-low latency streaming analytics solution for BT Enterprise customers.

Leveraging a Tier 1 telco network, Ori’s Global Edge (OGE) platform and KX’s analytics software will enable real-time stream analytics at the edge, increasing speeds and data usage.

Both firms are currently working with BT Innovation Labs to bring the combined solution to the telco giant’s enterprise offering.

Andy Corston-Petrie, senior manager for BT’s mobile core networks research, said: “Enterprises rely increasingly on latency-sensitive solutions that run on premise or in the cloud. With a private edge offering, we can unlock the edge for our enterprise customers who require secure, rapid decision making in highly regulated or closed environments.”

Ori is targeting the offering at organisations that are yet unable or unwilling to fully migrate to the cloud. In a press release, the company claimed its approach “delivers all the management and scalability benefits of cloud computing without the associated risks around latency, reliability, security and cost”.

Tier 1 telcos like BT are increasingly assessing the potential of edge computing and finding the opportunities, trade-offs and requirements that will unlock different business models at the edge.

Corston-Petrie continued: “In Ori Industries and KX, we see partners who can deliver on that edge potential. Together, we can enable enterprise customers to leverage on-site data and analyse it at the source, reducing the time needed for critical decision making.”

Douglas Mancini, chief commercial officer at Ori Industries, added: “In pairing one of the industry’s fastest streaming analytics solutions with our low latency delivery stack we’re enabling telcos to leverage their networks like never before, opening up the true promise of 5G.”
