Edgeworx Named 2019 Leading Lights Award Finalist for the Most Innovative Edge Computing Strategy

Company Recognized by Light Reading for Its Innovative Edge Computing
Platform

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/IoT?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#IoTlt;/agt;–Edgeworx Inc. today announced that the company’s ioFog edge computing
platform has been selected as a 2019 Leading Lights Award finalist
in the Most Innovative Edge Computing Strategy category. The Leading
Lights Awards recognizes the industry’s top companies and their
executives for their outstanding achievements in next-generation
communications technology, applications, services, strategies and
innovation.

“We are pleased to be shortlisted as a finalist for the Leading Lights
award from one of the most trusted industry publications, Light Reading.
This recognition reinforces our belief that customers need a common
compute platform at the edge to create a seamless cloud-to-edge
continuum,” said Farah Papaioannou, co-founder of Edgeworx. “We are
seeing a huge leap forward in the adoption of our technology from the
telecommunications industry, especially those who are taking an early
lead in 5G. Telecommunications companies are uniquely positioned to sit
in the data path, and by taking advantage of edge computing are opening
themselves up to new business models and revenue streams. These
customers recognize that 5G without edge computing is just a bigger
pipe, not a smarter pipe.”

By offering the ioFog technology as open source through the Eclipse
foundation, Edgeworx is providing a horizontal edge compute platform
that works in any industry and on any device. The company enables
developers to build for the edge, allowing them to easily deploy
advanced AI and machine learning algorithms at the edge to perform tasks
such as real-time video streaming analysis, natural language processing,
streaming analytics, and more.

“History has proven time and time again that the industry wants its
infrastructure to be built on open source technology, not proprietary
solutions,” added Kilton Hopkins, co-founder of Edgeworx. “We make
building, managing and deploying applications at the edge as easy as it
is for the cloud, to offer more than just innovative edge
infrastructure; we also bring the developers to the edge.”
