Unleashing Zero-Touch at the Network Edge: New Architecture Blueprint by FusionLayer and Nearby Computing
FusionLayer Inc. and Nearby Computing have collaborated to develop a new solution blueprint for automating network instantiation and management processes in edge clouds. This joint solution combines FusionLayer’s patented Network Source of Truth technology and Nearby Computing’s innovative orchestrator for network automation, enabling fully automated deployment of network and application workloads in Multi-Access Edge Clouds (MEC).
As Artificial Intelligence (AI) continues to make its way into the mainstream, the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry is exploring the infrastructure needed to host AI-enabled applications. This has led to the emergence of edge cloud computing, a cloud paradigm that decentralizes cloud computing by moving applications from public clouds to local data centers. Edge cloud computing aims to improve the security and responsiveness of AI-enabled solutions.
However, edge cloud computing also increases network complexity due to its distributed architecture. FusionLayer and Nearby Computing’s joint blueprint addresses this challenge by automating network instantiation and other management tasks, leveraging the Network Source of Truth technology. This technology allows for full process automation for virtualized networks, simplifying network management and offering new opportunities to monetize the network infrastructure.
Telecom companies have invested heavily in emerging technologies like 5G, but have struggled to see significant returns on these investments. To attract new investments in the edge cloud computing infrastructure required for AI-enabled applications, the industry is rolling out remotely programmable network services that open network functions through APIs. The joint blueprint by FusionLayer and Nearby Computing extends this opportunity further.
“The network source of truth is an essential component for running full process automation for virtualized networks. We are thrilled to collaborate with FusionLayer to provide our customers with this highly efficient solution for network management,” said Josep Martí, CEO of Nearby Computing.
