Thursday Bytes: Lumen, Verizon Business, Cisco, AT&T, Sparkle

December 2nd, 2021 by · Leave a Comment

Two manage services deployments, one managed security win, and some job markets collaboration:

Lumen continues to add capabilities at the edge. Yesterday they introduced the Lumen Edge Gateway, taking aim at medium to large enterprises with a need to deploy and evolve virtualized services rapidly without equipment upgrades. It’s a scalable compute platform that leverages Lumen’s extensive metro reach and enables enterprises to swiftly deploy services from multiple vendors on a common infrastructure.

Verizon Business is adding muscle to its Network-as-a-Service capabilities with the help of Cisco’s managed SD-WAN technology. The new managed service offerings enable hybrid connectivity, simplify operations, optimize resources and encourage an asset-light model. By leveraging Verizon’s 4G and 5G infrastructure they offer enterprises extensive geographical reach as well.

AT&T has picked up some municipal business out in the southwestern US. The City of Las Vegas has implemented AT&T’s managed services for Unified Endpoint Management, enabling secure network connectivity across thousands of mobile endpoints. Chief beneficiaries of the services will be first responders and field service workers serving the 650K population and the vast throngs of visitors to the city’s casinos and entertainment offerings.

And over in Italy, the TIM Group’s international arm Sparkle has renewed its collaboration with the Fondanzione Ortygia Business School. They are participating in the institution’s Young Women Empowerment Program within the economic and scientific disciplines at the University of Palermo and the University of Catania on the island of Sicily. Specifically they will be mentoring 10 masters students, giving them a conduit into the growing tech base at the heart of the Mediterranean.
