In fact, according a recent IDC report1, 68.7% of enterprises view application delivery services as relevant to their organization’s edge strategy and 75% of enterprises expect less than 5ms latency . Hence, minimizing latency has become increasingly important for enterprises to be able to deliver an optimal user experience in the modern digital era. To boost application performance and efficiency, enterprises need a solution designed for edge facilities using content delivery network (CDN) technology, software-defined networking (SD-WAN) and a cloud foundation with secure, private connections.
Lumen Application Delivery Solutions for the Edge combine our CDN, CDN Edge Compute, Edge Hosting Environment, Private Cloud and Dynamic Connections products with our strength in managed services. We are focused upon helping organizations optimize application performance across many situations, including: IoT software updates, video streaming and analytics, online gaming, location-based analytics and B2B/B2C branch transformations.
Take the banking industry, for example; with the rise of digital-only banking and their younger consumers, the industry expects to provide faster and more reliable personalized experience with improved security and data compliance at lower cost and increased flexibility. Many retail banks have adopted technologies such as AI-powered virtual assistant, facial recognition and other innovative tools that provide custom offers based upon their customers’ financial data. By implementing Lumen Edge Computing Solutions, banks can overcome latency and minimize risk by moving application logic closer to the users while simultaneously improving their security – thereby delivering immersive end user experiences.
