Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates – As part of their strategic partnership, Etisalat and Microsoft have joined forces to unlock new 5G scenarios with Azure Multi-access Edge Compute. Leveraging the power of Etisalat Core Orchestration and Azure ARM capabilities, the partnership is creating 5G edge compute plug-and-play infrastructures for enterprises to run industry solutions.

Edge computing technology is set to reform a host of industries, reducing latency and enabling a whole host of applications to deliver fast and secure 5G, IoT and AI applications.

“Etisalat Edge Computing solutions will help customers transform the way they operate, especially transportation, smart manufacturing, logistics, and Oil & Gas,” said Khaled Al Suwaidi, Vice President Fixed and Mobile Core at Etisalat. “This drastically increases the value for traditional networks to transition into 5G to develop intelligent and autonomous next generation technology that unlocks potential opportunities to our customers.”

 “We are proud of the synergy achieved between Etisalat’s advanced 5G capabilities and our Azure Edge and MEC services to unlock a whole new range of distributed applications with a common and consistent architecture for Enterprise customers.” said Naim Yazbeck, Regional Director, Enterprise and Partner Group (EPG), Microsoft UAE. “Azure MEC offers service providers and customers the same set of tools to build and manage their cloud infrastructure. Our customers can maximize their efforts by employing a “build once and deploy many” strategy to optimize their investments.”

This latest collaboration is a continuation of last year’s successful partnership, when Etisalat teamed up with Microsoft to drive a public cloud first strategy through a digital transformation program that enabled the telecommunications provider to build a platform infused with automation and AI.
