SAP co-develops 5G edge computing solutions with Singtel

Singtel, a communications technology company, is collaborating with SAP, a software company, in developing an end-to-end Intelligent Edge Aggregator (IEA) solution for enterprise customers.

The creation of IEA is aimed at enabling Singtel customers to easily access and integrate SAP software with their back-end processes at the cloud server edge. This will give time real-time data visibility crucial for the quick decision-making process.

“As our customers continue to digitally transform their business and run more business-critical applications in the cloud, the new use cases that this collaboration brings will further drive cloud adoption across industries, with deeper integrations into SAP’s suite of software solutions,” said Utkarsh Maheshwari, chief partner officer, SAP, Asia Pacific Japan.

The IEA solution will add greater cloud functionality and computing capabilities to its network architecture to help boost enterprise operations. 

Multi-edge computing solutions

The IEA will be developed on Singtel’s Paragon platform and supported by its 5G networks and multi-edge computing solutions.

“Through this collaboration, we can address the increasingly complex needs of enterprises, such as applications for computer vision and workplace safety,” said Dennis Wong, VP of Enterprise 5G and Platforms, Singtel. “This is part of our ongoing strategy to help enterprises maximize the capabilities of 5G, through Paragon, to drive innovation and business  growth.” 

With the incorporation of the IEA into Singtel’s existing portfolio of enterprise solutions, enterprises will have more tools and support to develop 5G use cases where ultra-fast speeds, low latency, and high bandwidth is critical. 

This is hoped to benefit enterprises in the manufacturing and logistics sectors that require applications like automated quality checks, defect detection, and last-mile delivery robotics.  

The collaboration also includes a joint go-to-market plan to scale the bundled solution across the region to countries like Australia, India, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Thailand.
