Lanner joins Trilogy's Rural Cloud Initiative

Lanner Electronics is joining Trilogy´s Rural Cloud Initiative (RCI) to support Trilogy Networks´ Distributed Cloud Platform for Rural America. The collaboration between Lanner and Trilogy aims to bring data collection, compute and transport at the edge and dramatically reduce communication latency and CAPEX/OPEX required for the 5G workload-intensive data processing and analytics.

Lanner and its eco-system partners have been working together to provide open, scalable and programmable network and intelligent edge appliances deployed in SDN/NFV, AIoT/IIoT and disaggregated 5G infrastructure. The integration between Lanner´s full range edge hardware platforms and Trilogy´s highly distributed ConEx edge compute architecture will enable cloud computing capabilities in distributed rural environments, offering agriculture and energy industries a resource-efficient Edge Cloud Solution with full network automation, virtualized overlay fabric, network slicing/segmentation and comprehensive IIoT visibility and analytics.

"Over the the past four years, Lanner has been working with our ecosystem partners to build the most comprehensive edge compute platforms designed for SDN and IIoT infrastructure in private 5G Networks. The collaboration with the Rural Cloud Initiative will excelerate the deployment of cloud-based technology in far edge settings," said Sven Freudenfeld, CTO Lanner Electronics Telecom Application Business Unit.

The Rural Cloud Initiative (RCI) has been formed to bring together an ecosystem of technology providers, wired and wireless service providers and application developers to extend the power of IoT and Artificial Intelligence to underserved rural markets. In its first phase, RCI will utilize edge computing and 5G public and private wireless to support precision agriculture with real-time data collected and acted upon from connected IoT devices. The ultimate goal is to double the crop output over the next few decades with no increase in land, water or cost.

"The Rural Cloud Initiative is focusing the world´s greatest technology leaders on transforming the way we produce food in America," said George Woodward, CEO at Trilogy Networks and board member on the US Precision Agriculture Connectivity Task Force. "Lanner and its ecosystem of partners will dramatically advance the edge play, and this is far broader than just agriculture – the rural applications for IIoT connectivity cuts across many vertical sections. We are delighted to partner with Lanner on this important initiative."
