Intelligence at the Edge

Over the last decade a key trend for capital intensive asset owners is to take advantage of machine data to drive greater operational efficiency. 

Equipment and products rely on logic and programs to take action. Next comes distribution of even more intelligence to support both collaborative and autonomous decision making. There are two emerging architectures that will define the edge compute paradigm:

  • Mobile Edge Computing (MEC): Places emphasis on the communications infrastructure to help manage traffic and content with specific roles placed on field devices and user premise equipment. MEC capabilities for carriers include radio network aware content optimization, active device location tracking, intelligent video analytics and augmented reality content delivery.
  • Fog Computing: Advocates compartmentalization of tasks. The architecture focuses on real-time feedback control and offload computation for ultra-low power IoT device.

Our services enable clients to develop innovative next- generation products, build and maintain new features that take advantage of fog computing and mobile edge computing architectures.

Edge Computing Service

Our Services

Drawing on Aricent’s design and engineering expertise in 5G, mobile access, core networks and datacenters we were able to achieve the transformative power of the edge. We help clients develop a new class of devices and applications are emerging that will generate unprecedented demand for mobile computing power and real-time exchange. Through our experience design services we help clients look past the limits of device processing and the latency of cloud computing, and instead bring compute power closer to the user — to the edge of the internet, the network operators' unique domain.

Some of our services include:

Product design and development

Aricent has expertise in extensive design and development of modular system architecture, system design, system engineering, OAMP and platform re-engineering.

We bring extensive design and development expertise in modular system architecture, design,  engineering, OAMP (Operations, Administration, Management, and Provisioning); and platform re-engineering across  wireless, wireline and datacentre . We are able to achieve rapid time-to-market in mobile edge computing and fog computing


Testing and integration

Our competence in testing domains such as product validation, interoperability, regression testing, managed testing and certification has been honed over multiple customer engagements.

We help ensure interoperability with equipment from a variety of vendors and perform compliance testing for the pre-certification of equipment.

Field deployment

We assist customers in deployment services, work closely with customers on field trials, customer focus testing and deployment testing.

We offer Level 2 & Level 3 field support for customers. We work closely with carriers and service providers and provide technical consulting on their network planning phases.

Product Strategy/Consultancy

With deep domain expertise drawn from our data center, wireline and wireless talent pools, Aricent is able to synthesize optimal and innovative solutions in the Edge Computing space

We help OEMs identify critical market requirements for Edge Computing, translate them into specific product requirements, and target the ideal product phasing for different product features, defines the product architecture and test strategies.
