Pente Networks™, developer of IT-First private enterprise LTE/5G solutions for system integrators, service providers and enterprises, today announced it has been collaborating with Monogoto, a cloud-based cellular network enabling API-driven Infrastructure-as-a-Service, and Supermicro, a global technology leader committed to delivering first-to- market innovation for Enterprise, Cloud, AI, and 5G Telco/Edge IT Infrastructure, on advanced wireless edge solutions with a full-stack approach.
The combined solution leverages Monogoto’s Connectivity-as-a-Service (CaaS) cloud, including cellular connectivity for IoT devices on public networks or on private 4G or 5G, with Pente’s market-leading edge software integrated into Monogoto’s cloud, with Supermicro appliances at the edge. Capabilities include local breakout for data, survivability options, and the ability to support real time management and automation.
Monogoto is the first service provider to deploy Pente Edge software running on Supermicro’s systems, in support of the introduction of Monogoto’s EdgePlus™ service offering being demonstrated in Las Vegas at Mobile World Congress America 2022.
Pente is contributing the mobile core and management layers, as part of their new Pente Survivable Edge™ which makes private LTE/5G private networks extremely robust and IoT and Industrial IoT solutions easier to deploy and manage.
Supermicro’s market-proven IoT SuperServer family will support this initiative, including the (SYS-E302-12D and SYS-110D). Both systems include the Intel Xeon D®-based processors which is the most advanced System-on-a-Chip built for the edge with built-in AI, security, advanced I/O, and dense computing.
“We designed a joint solution with our software running on Supermicro systems, enabling Monogoto to offer their customers their powerful and cost effective EdgePlus service” said Jonathan Schwartz, CTO, Pente. “The result is an instant edge optimized for cloud-based enterprise private networks. Together, we make spinning up a new network as easy as it is to spin up a VM, with a plug-and-play devices that simplify the design, building and management of connected systems.”
“We are a big believer in the combined future of Edge and private 5G futuristic use cases, such as augmented reality, autonomous systems and advanced vertical industry solutions,” said Maor Efrati, CTO, Monogoto. “Working with Pente and Supermicro, we can deliver tightly integrated edge-to-cloud capabilities, which we have demonstrated in agriculture, education, and warehousing as a start. Together, we offer the ideal platform for developers of IoT and Industrial IoT solutions.”
The global market for private LTE and 5G wireless infrastructure is forecast to grow almost fourfold over the next five years, growing to $8.3 billion in 2026, according to a new forecast from IDC. The analyst firm predicts worldwide revenues from private LTE/5G wireless infrastructure hit $1.7 billion in 2021 and is set to grow by a cumulative 388% in the next five years as more and more enterprise users decide there is value in having their own private cellular wireless network.
