NTT partners with VMware to combine 5G and edge services

VMware and NTT are partnering to provide managed edge and private 5G services targeted at those rapidly expanding markets

As digital transformation continues, and more organisations adopt different technologies, the amount of data they are collecting is increasing.

To handle all this data, companies need to leverage edge services, private 5G networks can also help organisations ensure that their data is processed quickly. 

The IT infrastructure company NTT is partnering with VMware to offer a service that offers both edge capabilities and private 5G. NTT first launched its global private 5G network-as-a-service last year.

“Combining Edge and Private 5G is a game changer for our customers and the entire industry, and we are making it available today. The combination of NTT and VMware’s Edge Compute Stack and Private 5G delivers a unique solution that will drive powerful outcomes for enterprises eager to optimise the performance and cost efficiencies of critical applications at the network edge. Minimum latency, maximum processing power, and global coverage are exactly what enterprises need to accelerate their unique digital transformation journeys,”  said Shahid Ahmed, Group EVP, New Ventures and Innovation CEO, NTT.

Making processing data simpler 

VMware’s secure application development, resource management automation, and real-time processing capabilities combined with NTT’s multi-cloud and edge platforms, creates a fully integrated Edge+Private 5G managed service. VMware and NTT’s innovative offering resides closer to where the data is generated or collected, enabling enterprises to access and react to information instantaneously.

This solution, which leverages multi-cloud and multi-tenant connectivity, combined with NTT’s capabilities in network segmentation, and expertise with movement from private to public 5G, provides benefits for multiple industries, including manufacturing, retail, logistics, and entertainment.

“Enterprises are increasingly distributed — from the digital architecture they rely on to the human workforce that powers their business daily. This has spurred a sea change across every industry, altering where data is produced, delivered, and consumed. Bringing VMware’s Edge Compute Stack to NTT’s Edge-as-a-Service will enable our mutual customers to build, run, manage, connect and better protect edge-native applications at the Near and Far Edge while leveraging consistent infrastructure and operations with the power of edge computing,” said Sanjay Uppal, Senior Vice President and general manager, service provider, and edge business unit, VMware.
