The Open Network Edge Services Software (OpenNESS) is a multi-access edge computing (MEC) software toolkit that was developed by Intel and allows developers to create and deploy applications at the network edge or on-premise edge locations.
This open source distribution fosters application innovation, and developer engagement with the ecosystem to create 5G and edge solutions.
The engineering services for OpenNESS builds upon an ongoing collaboration between Wipro and Intel on innovative 5G and edge solutions that use Intel’s FlexRAN software reference architecture and OpenNESS.
Wipro would leverage its long legacy of engineering services to ensure successful deployment of commercial solutions based on the OpenNESS platform, said the company.
“Our collaboration with Intel will help build 5G solutions enabled by edge computing that will power industry applications, deliver superior experiences and drive business efficiencies,” K R Sanjiv, chief technology officer, Wipro, was quoted saying.
Renu Navale, General Manager, Edge Computing and Ecosystem Enabling, Intel said successful commercialization of open source innovations requires partners who can expertly integrate technology components as well as provide engineering services and Wipro’s collaboration with Intel on OpenNESS and several other Intel technologies makes them a valuable partner.
