Telco Systems, an edge telecommunications company, has been selected by Mexican building materials company CEMEX to supply its edge compute platform.
The $2 million dollar contract will see Telco providing its Edgility platform, an enterprise communications network operating and management system.
The platform will allow for managed connections between CEMEX facilities worldwide, connecting its thousands of locations.
Edgility uses virtualisation technology to decouple the network from hardware, bringing reduced running costs and thus a smaller carbon footprint to CEMEX. The building company will also benefit from more efficient network management and increased scalability.
The operating includes a management and orchestration solution that provides the flexibility and scalability to expand and adapt to customer requirements. It also can host a diverse range of applications on any standard server – enabling a high-level user experience at a significantly lower CAPEX and OPEX.
Ariel Efrati, CEO of Telco Systems, said: “Our contract with CEMEX will demonstrate our ability to seamlessly connect thousands of edge devices across diverse geographies.
“Our dedicated value proposition lies in our ability to provide full automation as well as intuitive management in a combined networking and IT environment, which is critical for enterprises to manage. Solutions like VMware and Azure are lacking these capabilities and are not built to deploy such services at scale.”
