Vasona and F5 Team To Scale Virtual MEC Rollouts

Vasona Networks announced a partnership effort with F5, which makes apps go faster, smarter and safer for the world’s service providers. The companies will work together to power virtual multi-access edge computing (MEC) deployments for mobile operators at scale.

The collaboration between Vasona Networks and F5 comes as operators globally are investing in intelligent edge capabilities to offer differentiated and agile low-latency services on the path to 5G.

F5’s advanced load balancing and load sharing redundancy combined with Vasona’s SmartAIR Virtual Edge Services Platform (vESP) in-line traffic monitoring and management can be deployed quickly to deliver health monitoring and high-availability across applications and MEC platform functions. This is especially important in emerging industries such as industrial IoT, autonomous vehicles and smart cities, where redundancy and uninterrupted service is critical to ongoing operation.
