T-Systems’ EdgAIR platform is designed to act as a private enterprise edge cloud and is able to be connected to a network through network and protocol standards (5G, Wi-Fi 6, TSN, etc.). The platform is secure with under 10 ms latency for real-time onsite applications. EdgAIR can also be combined with a public cloud for hybrid cloud offerings.
The platform provides a combination of a fully cloud-native and Kubernetes- and container-based architecture that provides a production-grade offering for managing edge cloud infrastructure. It uses the StarlingX open source project to simplify Day 1 and Day 2 operations by providing single-pane-of-glass (SPoG) management and zero-touch automated deployment of thousands of nodes, no matter their location. The platform also provides fully automated and hitless software updates and upgrades across a geo-distributed cloud, with rollback capabilities.
