BM and Bharti Airtel , a premier communications solutions

I provider in India with more than 358 million subscribers , have announced their intent to work together to deploy Airtel ’ s Edge Computing platform in India , which will include 120 network data centres across 20 cities .

Once deployed , the platform is designed to enable large enterprises across multiple industries including manufacturing and automotive to accelerate innovative solutions that deliver new value to their clients and operations – securely at the Edge .
Airtel ’ s Edge Computing platform , deployed as a hybrid environment based on IBM Cloud Satellite and Red Hat OpenShift , extends secured and open cloud services wherever data resides .

The business value delivered by Edge Computing can be significantly enhanced when combined with 5G . In India , where 5G is expected to be rolled out later this year , it has the potential to create a cumulative economic impact of US $ 1 trillion by 2035 .
“ As India gears up to experience 5G , we see a massive opportunity to help businesses across industries transform how they deliver goods and services ,” said Ganesh Lakshminarayanan , CEO – Enterprise , Airtel Business .
