BUILDING THE 5G EDGE WITH OPEN SOURCE AND CONTAINERS

5G brings new and updated use cases in vRAN, MEC, uCPE, transportation, healthcare, and Industry 4.0.

These disparate use cases share common elements, including the need for low latency, high bandwidth, small footprint, and strong security.

In addition, today’s development teams want to maximize efficiency by developing an application once and deploying it wherever and however it’s needed, whether on the near edge or far edge, clustered, or in a distributed or centralized cloud.

EFFECTIVE 5G EDGE INFRASTRUCTURE MUST ENABLE:

  • Workload orchestration
  • Zero touch provisioning
  • Centralized management
  • Edge cloud autonomy
  • Massive scale
  • The ability to introduce containers without replacing existing infrastructure


StarlingX provides a fully featured open source cloud for the distributed edge. With telco-grade features and a “container first” strategy, StarlingX makes IT technology feasible for a heterogeneous edge.
