Starting in 20 cities and expanding, Alef frees up businesses to flexibly build their own virtual mobile networks and applications, eliminating the complex management of wireless technologies and providers.
NEW YORK- (BUSINESS WIRE) –
Aleph, the leader of the end internet, today introduced Private Edge, the first platform that will turn the end internet into reality and radically change the way the world lives, works and plays.
The promise of end-to-end computers and decentralized Internet — especially the power of 5G networks — continues to be broadcast with a limited, real utility. Service providers that own the legacy space and existing infrastructure cannot perform fast enough to meet the needs of the global economy. Businesses that want to take advantage of 5G applications and services do not have the infrastructure to do so.
Alef’s Private Edge platform is a new software-defined, mobile, edge-based neutral host and open approach that helps businesses build and manage their own custom virtual private network. As a pioneer in end-to-end Internet computing and connectivity, Alef continues to create the necessary building blocks for businesses, organizations and developers to accelerate the adoption and use of 5G networks and applications that are on the edge.
“By launching decentralized private networks in minutes, not months, Alef is creating shared economic results through open APIs for the next generation of Internet and communications services,” said Ganesh Sundaram, Alef’s founder and CEO.
Sundaram continued: “As a society, our success improves based on the access we have to mobile networks – and it doesn’t matter if you are an IT director, a small business owner, a student or a consumer. Today, Aleph tells the world that there is a better way to build access to undervalued areas and markets and unlock the potential of a mobile end. ”
Alef’s Private Edge platform is the core technology that powers the new decentralized Internet and the ultimate economy. For example, in Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) networks, the platform allows customers to connect to a globally distributed, multi-user, neutral host computing network and Alef delivery networks. By moving intelligence and computing to the edge, businesses can accelerate their performance and improve the performance of existing applications, while building edge-oriented solutions that have yet to be discovered.
Private Edge consists of three main pillars that power the ability to quickly, securely and affordably build and use lightning-fast applications.
Edge Points – a layer of end nodes that allows businesses to become virtual mobile operators who own and manage their private end network. Today, more than 20 cities in the United States can benefit from Private Edge, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas and Miami.
Edge Builder – the programmable edge where developers can use application APIs and create end applications and solutions.
Edge Marketplace – the destination for purchasing, connecting, collaborating and sharing pre-configured products (applications) created using the API from Edge Builder.
To stimulate growth and make it easier for businesses to develop the next generation of end applications, Alef provides APIs found in Edge Builder that allow companies to quickly launch and activate their own mobile virtual networks. The first API available, Edge Connect, allows businesses to access faster edge speeds for a fraction of their broadband costs.
“As the world continues to accelerate the way we connect and share data, the inevitability of the ultimate computational framework is becoming clearer. However, to ensure fast and seamless adoption, one needs features like Alef’s open private edge platform to truly enable developers and the ecosystem to create new mobile experiences optimized for both price, performance and privacy. ” said Chetan Sharma, CEO of Chetan Sharma Consulting.
Private Edge, Edge Points, Edge Builder and Edge Connect are available immediately. Edge Marketplace will be available in the fourth quarter of 2021.
Alef will soon introduce a full suite of APIs that promise to transform the advertising, cybersecurity and gaming industries and officially usher in the era of state-of-the-art internet.
