mobile broadband environments—where we have implemented 5G-style
applications over 4G LTE. Building
the Edge Internet requires alliances, and our commitment to this is
exemplified in the recently

to bring together the integral pieces of the Edge Internet to drive the
industry toward the next wave of digital service,” said Dr. Ganesh
Sundaram, CEO of Alef Mobitech.
Alef’s Edge Solution allows Application Providers and Mobile Network
Operators (MNOs) to work collaboratively to unleash the value of the
Edge Internet engine. This new Edge capability drops seamlessly into
existing standard 3G, 4G and 5G networks. With the Alef Edge, a brand
new class of fast, effective and rich internet applications can now be
brought to market.
“Alef is doing what others are just beginning to understand. The Edge
Internet architecture at the core of the Alef platform is a capability
that has been seven years and many millions of R&D investments in the
making. The excitement of seeing the market demand new capabilities at
the network Edge and witnessing Alef deliver these incredible
performance results at the Edge is striking. Alef’s unique and
transformative approach can spark a valuable and progressive
reconfiguration of the entire Internet around the Edge,” said industry
