Ericsson, Telstra collaborate on edge cloud for enterprises

By

Swedish telecommunications equipment vendor Ericsson is collaborating with Telstra to develop an enterprise solution with an extension into the hybrid cloud space, following a successful 5G edge computing trial with an Australian financial institution in 2019.

The two companies say the partnership will help drive innovation across industries by developing solutions to help enable seamless orchestration, network exposure and service assurance, with the capabilities helping make consumption-based interfaces between cloud providers and the Telstra network possible.

“With agile, enterprise-tuned network services across its network, Telstra will be able to promote enhanced services for its enterprise customers,” Ericsson said.

Ericssson says the new enterprise edge cloud solution is expected to be delivered within months and will act as a catalyst for the development of a reusable and open framework - and with the solution, the Telstra network will be able to cater to unique customer needs, where network services can be offered either on the edge or on-premise.

Emilio Romeo, Head of Ericsson Australia and New Zealand says: “With this extended partnership with Telstra into enterprise edge cloud, we continue to push the boundaries of technological innovation, bringing the benefits of 5G and edge to enterprises, whilst supporting Telstra to create new services across its network.”

“We’re pleased to be working with Ericsson to develop this enterprise edge cloud solution. This is a natural progression from last year’s trial around 5G edge computing and will serve as a framework for us to bring the benefits of 5G to the hands of Australians,” said Nikos Katinakis, Telstra Group Executive Networks & IT.

“It also paves the way for future use cases into other industries, such as agriculture and manufacturing. As the 5G rollout continues across Australia, harnessing edge computing will enable us to tap into the potential of 5G technology, ensuring that Australia and our customers remain at the cutting edge of mobile technology.”

Ericsson and Telstra say the will continue to explore solutions for various industries over the coming months and these industries will benefit from repeatable design and orchestration of edge computing’s foundational capabilities for use cases with high requirements on scalability, security, availability, low latency and bandwidth.

“New potential enterprise use cases for agriculture, industrial IoT, enterprise branch connectivity services and smart cities, will unlock the potential of innovation by bringing new services to their customers,” Ericsson notes.
