ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading global provider of cloud-based services, intelligent gateways, and embedded building blocks for edge devices that enable the Internet of Things (IoT), and Saguna, the Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) pioneer making mobile broadband faster, simpler and more economical, announced today a joint Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) solution designed for deployments in harsh outdoor environments.

As MEC gains momentum, and new trials and live deployments are underway, the need for robust, no-fault equipment increases. Bringing the Internet closer to users and the things of the IoT requires MEC platforms to be deployed at the edge of the Radio Access Network (RAN), which is often in harsh outdoor environments.

Saguna and ADLINK integrated solution addresses this market need for rugged, outdoor deployments. The joint solution is comprised of Saguna Open-RAN, an advanced and fully virtualized MEC platform, operating on ADLINK’s rugged SETO-1000 extreme outdoor server platform designed for extreme conditions. The joint solution is compact, cost-effective and easy-to-install. By co-locating the MEC infrastructure with existing network real estate, mobile operators can reduce costs while delivering new services and improving network performance.

I am excited that together, ADLINK and Saguna are bringing to market the first outdoor MEC solution featuring ADLINK’s SETO-1000 and Saguna’s advanced MEC software platform,” said Yong Luo, General Manager of ADLINK's Embedded Computing Product Segment. “ADLINK's SETO-1000 is an advanced edge computing solution that enables telecom carriers to reduce back-haul and transmission costs. It also provides smoother and faster delivery for application providers, as well as a faster web browser response experience for end users.

Commenting on the integration, Saguna CTO Danny Frydman said, “Our work with ADLINK resulted in a highly effective solution that answers a real market need for mobile operators. This ruggedized MEC platform accelerates the adoption of MEC and offers the low-latency support required by Internet of Things and Tactile Internet applications.

See it in action in MWC16

The companies will present their MEC solution with CIMAGINE, a leading augmented reality visualization platform, running on the Saguna Open-RAN MEC platform and ADLINK SETO-1000 at the upcoming Mobile World Congress. The demo will feature CIMAGINE’s augmented reality platform, in which furniture shoppers can see exactly how the furniture they want may look placed in their home. It demonstrates how MEC capabilities can drive e-commerce with a superior user experience enhancing personalized online shopping.

Mobile World Congress will take place in Barcelona, Spain, scheduled for February 22-25, 2016. The demonstrations will be held at Saguna’s booth #5C81.
