Businesses are constantly searching for ways to evolve and adapt in this era of rapidly-growing network demands. The heavy strain on networks, a result of growing bandwidth and latency demands, is putting traditional business operations to the test, and to support the demands of end users into the future, many companies are turning to emerging technologies like edge computing.

Edge computing, or a distributed computing paradigm that brings data and data processing closer to the point of usage, is a great strategy for ensuring networks are keeping up with exploding requirements. At the edge, the always-connected customer can enjoy augmented speed and capabilities, while businesses can leverage improved security and opportunities to further explore a range of use cases like the Internet of Things (IoT) or Augmented Reality (AR) services.

To facilitate the adoption of this network solution, New Continuum Data Centers, a leader in defining next-generation, multi-tenant data center services, has teamed up with AlefEdge, the edge internet specialist firm. Now, AlefEdge’s revolutionary suite of edge solutions will be available at New Continuum’s western Chicago facility, a convergence point for optical and logical networks, to enable and empower the surrounding communities.

As a multi-tenant data center operator in the western Chicago suburbs, New Continuum’s partnership with AlefEdge creates new opportunities for the region’s network operators and application providers as they seek to deliver next-generation wireless services. The West Chicago NAP facility’s world-class connectivity, combined with AlefEdge’s live deployment of edge computing, clouds and applications offer providers the opportunity to leverage easy deployment and integration. This, in turn, opens up a host of possibilities for regional businesses, including IoT, edge streaming, autonomous vehicles and beyond.

“I am extremely excited to announce this partnership,” says Eli D. Scher, founder and CEO of New Continuum. “We are constantly seeking to form partnerships with truly innovative companies offering complementary services in order to deliver value to our customers, and Alef is an example of our ideal partner. By integrating our products, rural and regional fixed-line and wireless-service providers can now deliver 5G services on existing infrastructure. This immediate edge compute use case saves both capital and reduces latency, delivering clear value to our mutual customers.”

This partnership underscores the New Continuum commitment to delivering flexible and scalable solutions, innovative technology, next-level services and expert support from a team of industry veterans. By providing a premier, high-density data center with a range of features that promote connectivity and flexibility, New Continuum offers an ideal location for wireless carriers to deploy edge compute functions.
