Syniverse Joins Forces with Microsoft to Offer Global SIM Solution for Azure Private MEC

Business Wire | October 06, 2023

According to Juniper Research, the number of global private cellular Internet of Things (IoT) roaming connections will grow by more than 800% in the next four years, climbing from 15 million in 2023 to 142 million by 2027. Given this mass surge, organizations must make sure they have uninterrupted connectivity across devices, along with complete visibility into their whole program. To meet the need for more reliable connectivity, Syniverse, "the world's most connected company,"® is partnering with Microsoft to make its Global SIM solution available for use with Microsoft Azure private multi-access edge compute (MEC). This strategic collaboration allows enterprises deploying a private network at their operational facilities, using Azure Private 5G Core on Azure edge platform, to leverage Syniverse solutions to support OT applications that require private-to-public 5G and LTE network interoperability. With this add-on service, IoT devices for asset tracking, frontline workforce collaboration, and autonomous guided vehicles (AGVs) primarily connected on private networks can roam over a public network on demand or leverage public networks for improved resiliency. Enterprises using workforce tablets on public networks can also switchover to dedicated private networks at enterprise facilities. Whether it’s a utility company that desires a localized wireless network solution that’s fast, dependable, and secure, or a large-scale manufacturer that wants to extend connectivity well beyond its facility, private wireless networks are the driving force that will enable these capabilities. But these aren’t the only industries that will benefit from the power of this solution — mining, shipping, transportation, logistics, healthcare, and even smart cities can improve the lives of users by enabling reliable, global, and secure roaming between private and public networks. Given the rapid expansion of private wireless networks and the Internet of Things, seamless roaming between private and public networks is more essential than ever, said Harry Patz, Jr., Chief Revenue Officer at Syniverse. Through this integration, Azure users will benefit from technology that lets devices move to public networks and automatically revert to the private network when it's available. This prevents businesses from racking up costly roaming revenues if their devices remain connected to public networks, eliminates communication issues regardless of where in the world these devices are located, and ensures their continued security. All of which go a long way toward improving the customer experience. Syniverse recently received an IoT Evolution Private Wireless Network Innovation Award from IoT Evolution World, the leading publication covering IoT technologies. The awarded solution is built on patented Automated Network Reselection (ANR) technology, a unique feature that provides secure and seamless connectivity as mobile devices move from private to public networks and back. It includes subscriber identity module (SIM) management and hosted or on-premises core functionality, policy, and cloud integration, and it is ideal for organizations that demand reliable connections, high speeds, and minimal latency, as well as the option to increase security based on specific devices. Microsoft private network customers can now integrate Syniverse Global SIM, a platform as a service (PaaS), that provides global coverage in over 200 countries and gives control over cellular data and precision policy management over every device in an organization. "Syniverse’s Global SIM solution offers our enterprise customers with global, multi-site operations, the capability to support applications that traverse private and public connectivity and offer mission critical resiliency," said Tad Brockway, Corporate Vice President, Azure for Operators, Microsoft. "We are working together to integrate and validate the solutions to make it really simple for enterprises to manage solutions built with Azure private MEC." The Syniverse Global SIM solution is available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. About Syniverse Syniverse is the world's most connected company. We seamlessly connect the world's networks, devices, and people so the world can unlock the full power of communications. Our secure, global technology powers the world's leading carriers, top Forbes Global 2000 companies, and billions of people, devices, and transactions every day. Our engagement platform delivers better, smarter experiences that strengthen relationships between businesses, customers, and employees. For over 30 years, we have accelerated important advances in communications technology. Today we are an essential driver of the world's adoption of intelligent connectivity, from 5G and CPaaS to IoT and beyond. Find out more at https://www.syniverse.com.

LF Edge Announces Launch of Sandbox to Streamline Project Deployments

The Linux Foundation | September 20, 2023

On September 9, 2023, LF Edge, an organization under The Linux Foundation dedicated to fostering open, interoperable edge computing solutions, announced the upcoming launch of the LF Edge Sandbox. This self-service platform, provided by ZEDEDA, allows for the deployment of LF Edge projects and solutions to edge devices. The LF Edge Sandbox acts as a centralized system, enabling individuals to swiftly engage with LF Edge projects for creating proofs of concept (POCs), demonstrations, and end-user experiences. The service operates as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution and is offered by ZEDEDA, an LF Edge member organization. It grants remote management and orchestration capabilities for edge hardware running LF Edge project applications, utilizing the LF Edge Project EVE's open Linux-based operating system, EVE-OS, to facilitate secure device management and application orchestration at scale. It is set to become available in the coming weeks, providing developers with a platform for testing open-source projects and experimenting with their own solutions. Users with a Linux Foundation ID will be able to create a free LF Edge Sandbox account, select LF Edge project applications for deployment from a pre-configured list, and even test private applications for real-world use cases. The deployment process is designed to be quick and straightforward, with applications ready for testing within minutes. With the Sandbox, developers can easily deploy LF Edge project applications, making it simpler for them to explore and test various projects. It aims to encourage the development of edge computing solutions by simplifying project deployment, allowing developers to focus on building valuable solutions. GM, Networking, Edge and IoT at the Linux Foundation, Arpit Joshipura, remarked, The development of the LF Edge Sandbox speaks to the community's robust array of in-demand edge computing solutions. This new service will make it even easier for people and organizations to trial various LF Edge project solutions and blueprints across formats, ultimately enabling faster deployment. Congratulations to the community for achieving this milestone, and thank you ZEDEDA for the resources. [Source: Cision PR Newswire] Joe Pearson, chair of the LF Edge Technical Advisory Council (TAC) and Open Source Strategy at IBM Software, Networking, and Edge Computing, stated that the abundance of intriguing LF Edge projects, with more on the horizon, has made it a challenging task for an individual or even a small team to acquire sufficient knowledge to install and experiment with all these solutions. He pointed out that Project EVE's platform, as executed and supported by ZEDEDA, offers a simplified approach for deploying any of these projects across various architectures and in the most suitable format, whether it be a bare install, virtual machine, or container. Joe also highlighted that this Sandbox would enable interested parties to become productive within minutes rather than spending days or weeks on the same task. About The Linux Foundation The Linux Foundation has emerged as the go-to organization for the world's leading developers and corporations seeking to foster ecosystems that expedite open technology advancement and widespread commercial adoption. Collaborating closely with the global open-source community, it tackles some of the most challenging technological hurdles, underpinned by the most extensive shared technology investment assembled.
