A Network of Private Edges
WANT 5G-LIKE APPLICATIONS FOR YOUR CBRS NETWORK TODAY?
PROBLEMS WITH CBRS WHERE YOU ARE
Your employees are having a poor remote work experience and their applications need ultra-high bandwidth and low latency (5G-Like Services) in order to work – they’re not happy.
Applications run slow because they were not DESIGNED for mobility. Your employees expect a FAST direct network connection—not remote access on a wireless connection.
Remote teams in city and new IoT devices have created thousands of new unsecured connections and endpoints for hackers and cyber-thieves to exploit.
Your network is becoming more complex and difficult to manage due to closed architectures, new technologies, uncontrolled devices, and remote networks.
Compliance with Regulations
You need to comply with changing corporate policies, data privacy, and sovereignty laws in order to avoid fines and negative press.
So, how can your employees work easily with 5G-Like applications in remote locations with HIGH performance and solid security?
You can explore different Software-Defined Networking (SDN) technologies, such as SD-WAN, SASE, and MEC but those come up short…
Solves regulatory compliance, network management, and some application performance problems.
Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)
Solves your security problems.
Mobile Edge Computing (MEC)
Solves local breakout of data and can handle 3GPP mobility standards.
UNFORTUNATELY – SOME HAVE “ISSUES”
No Edge APIs
Most MEC companies only provide fixed software with no open programmability.
CBRS & SD WAN with Mobile Edge Computing Difficult Integrations and Closed Architectures
Many SD-WAN, SASE, and MEC vendors have complex integrated products that you cannot easily program or change because they have closed architectures.
Complex Optimizations of Networks
SASE and SD-WAN vendors address fixed network optimizations but not mobile networks (4G LTE, 5G, or CBRS) or remote network optimizations.
SD-WAN and MEC do not address security across the entire network, only in specific environments. But they are expensive and require complicated network connections.
No Mobile Edge Services in City
Most MEC vendors do not have API or services that can handle Edge roaming, mobility, or peering. SD-WAN and SASE are fixed architectures and do not address mobility!
Most SD-WAN products have expensive hardware components. MEC is typically offered as a hardware platform, not as a SaaS model.
THE BIG QUESTION
So, how do you provide 5G-Like Services and address these limitations application performance, mobility, and network management issues while maintaining security and complying with regulations? Perhaps you should consider a NEW approach…
SOFTWARE-DEFINED MOBILE EDGE (SD-ME)!CBRS & SD WAN with Mobile Edge Computing
There are three main reasons to consider SD-ME:
- Improved Application Performance over CBRS Higher Throughput and Lower Latency
- Edge Software to Build New Applications with CBRS Programing for Connectivity and Computing
- Management of Your Data and CBRS Network Data Control
Improved Application Performance over CBRS
Higher THroughput and Lower Latency
Applications run at the Edge, so your throughput increases – run more apps with higher performance. Your applications and data flows are served at the Edge lowering round-trip time.
AI and other high compute applications can run at the Edge versus in the Cloud resulting in faster Edge processing start and completion times.
Offload of Traffic
SD-ME enables you to offload your local traffic at the Edge of the Network over CBRS (instead of the Cloud), reducing transport costs and improving application speeds. Edge Software to Build New Applications with CBRS
Programing for Connectivity and Computing
You can build truly mobile and high performing applications with unique software that leverage shared Edge computing resources and macro/local wireless networks (including CBRS).
SD-ME’s capabilities enable 5G-like applications, today, without deploying a 5G Network Management of Your Data and CBRS Network
You can determine what data/functions are processed at the Edge versus what is implemented at the Cloud, giving you tight control over your applications, network, and security. So, how can you free yourself from expensive service providers and leverage the benefits of SD-ME to easily get 5G-Like services? Perhaps you should free your mobile enterprise network with Alef EdgeNet!…
