NTT Ltd, an IT infrastructure and services company has announced the launch of Edge-as-a-Service (EaaS), a managed edge compute platform which gives businesses the ability to deploy and monitor applications.

In collaboration with VMware and Intel, NTT is working to innovate on edge-focused solutions and services. 

NTT’s EaaS offering is powered by VMware’s Edge Compute Stack which includes private 5G connectivity and will be delivered across its global footprint on the Intel network and edge technology to accelerate business process automation.

NTT group EVP, new ventures and innovation CEO Shahid Ahmed said: “Combining Edge and Private 5G is a game changer for our customers and the entire industry, and we are making it available.

“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.” 

VMware and NTT’s collaboration creates a fully integrated Edge+Private 5G managed service that means enterprises and industries including manufacturing, retail, and entertainment can access and react to information immediately.

VMware senior VP and general manager of edge business unit Sanjay Uppal added: “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.”
