EDGE COMPUTING

DEPLOY DATA AND COMPUTE CLOSER TO THE ACTION

Why public sector organizations are moving to the edge

Modern workloads that require high bandwidth and low latency are driving processes to the edge, where the interaction between people and machines is taking place. Here’s why IT leaders say they’re adopting edge strategies. 

Need faster transaction times

Report that users want better performance

Plan to deploy IT assets in users locations to deliver new digital services

Designed to cover 98% of demand in ≤5ms latency

Manufacturing factories 

Healthcare providers

Lumen edge nodes

5ms radius

Lumen cloud Edge Computing nodes are designed to meet 98% of the U.S. enterprise and public sector demand within 5ms of latency, enabling you to run next-gen applications smoothly and efficiently by linking your sites from the Premises Edge to the Metro Edge to the Cloud Core.

Our platform offers flexible application delivery options over the largest ultra-low-loss fiber network in North America with 3.5 million miles of high-capacity, low-loss fiber.

The edge ecosystem built for the 4th Industrial Revolution

Lumen brings workloads closer to digital interactions using high-performance Storage, Security, Application Delivery and Intelligent Solutions.

Edge Computing is enabling amazing things in government and industry

Manufacturing

Manufacturing

A pharmaceutical manufacturer increases plant efficiency by implementing next-level monitoring that predicts when machines will break down.

Logistics

Logistics

An international delivery logistics company saves on data transfer costs by using edge resources to better manage its fleet when network access is limited.

Public Sector

Public Sector

A city reacts faster to incidents captured on surveillance cameras by implementing real-time video analytics at the edge rather than sending hours of footage to a data center for analysis.

Retail

Retail

A major retailer uses data collection robots to gather and transmit vast amounts of inventory data at low latency and high throughput without taxing store networks.

Healthcare

Healthcare

A healthcare provider improves urgent care response times by using IoT devices to deliver vast amounts of critical patient information and health data in real time.

Financial Services

Financial Services

A global banking institution achieves significant savings by deploying ultra-low latency edge infrastructure to run resource-intensive algorithms closer to stock exchanges.

Now’s the time to deploy next-gen apps

Here’s what the IDC report, Extending Digital Transformation, says are the top Edge Computing use cases.
Imaging and AI

Imaging and AI

Agencies can collect, process and view electronic records in hospitals, stream HD video for U.S. border security, and use weather data for modeling and mapping.

Automated Operations

Automated Operations

Agencies are using AI to track and coordinate geological factory sensors, warehouse robots, drones surveilling land resources in mines and autonomous cranes at container ports.

Real-Time Machine Learning

Real-Time Machine Learning

Smart cities can modernize with sensors and IoT devices to implement services like traffic safety analytics, remote lighting management, roadway data services and automated parking operations.

Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality

Federal agencies are piloting AR for use in therapy to treat PTSD, educating farmers on the installation of solar panels, and disaster management preparedness and response.
