Ericsson and Telstra team up on edge cloud for enterprises

Ericsson and Telstra are now developing an enterprise solution with an extension into the hybrid cloud space

Ericsson and Telstra are teaming up to develop an enterprise edge cloud solution developed specifically for the Telstra domain. This collaboration follows a successful 5G edge computing trial with an Australian financial institution in 2019.

This new partnership will help drive innovation across industries by developing solutions to enable seamless orchestration, network exposure and service assurance. These capabilities will help 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 enterprise customers.

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. With this 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.”

Ericsson and Telstra will continue to explore solutions for various industries over the coming months. 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.

Nikos Katinakis, Telstra Group Executive Networks & IT says:

“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. 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.”

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.
