Lumen regional president Annette Murphy said that Edge computing will drive the next wave of business innovation and growth across virtually all industries.
"Customers in Europe can now tap into the power of the Lumen platform, underpinned by Lumen's extensive fiber footprint, to deploy data-heavy applications and workloads that demand ultra-low latency at the cloud edge. This delivers peak performance and reliability, as well as more capability to drive amazing digital experiences. Customers can focus efforts on developing applications and bringing them to market, rather than on time-consuming infrastructure deployment," she said.
Murphy claimed that Lumen can meet approximately 70 per cent of enterprise demand within five milliseconds of latency at least in the UK, France, Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands. Additional locations are planned by end of the year.
Lumen Edge Computing Solutions bring together the power of the company's expansive global fiber network, on-demand networking, integrated security, and managed services, with edge facilities and compute and storage services. This allows for quick and efficient deployment of applications and workloads at the edge, closer to the point of digital interaction. Customers can procure Lumen Edge Computing Solutions online, and within an hour gain access to high-powered computing infrastructure on the Lumen platform.
