Allied Telesis Wins Awards at the MEC Congress in Germany

MUNICH, GERMANY – October 5th, 2017 - Allied Telesis, a leading provider of hardware and software products that allow customers to build secure, feature-rich and scalable data exchange solutions, enjoyed considerable success at the recent Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) Congress Edge Awards in Berlin by collecting two first-place awards for its Envigilant platform, which integrates MEC technology with specialized safety and security applications.

Held on September 26th, the 2017 MEC Congress focused on how today’s network operators utilize edge computing to deliver IoT applications and services to their customers, to drive automation and reduce operational costs.

Allied Telesis won the Best Edge Computing Technology award for its Envigilant Sensor Platform (ESP). ESP is an IoT gateway that delivers tailored edge-computing capabilities through the tight integration of hardware, software, services and support for customers in the manufacturing, security, smart city and transportation IoT markets. An ESP device is capable of withstanding harsh environments, vibration and elevated temperatures and provides immediate access to real-time information for process operations personnel at the network edge.

Allied Telesis also won first place in the Most Successful MEC Partnership category for its work with the Santa Clara Valley Transport Authority (VTA) and Levi’s Stadium prior to the 2015 Super Bowl in San Jose, California, USA. Miniaturized ESP devices were deployed to provide situational awareness throughout Santa Clara County and a common operating picture for VTA, Levi Stadium security operations and public safety agencies. The partnership between Allied Telesis and the VTA continues today, providing safe transportation and immediate passenger information throughout the VTA network.

“We’re delighted to have been recognized by the MEC Congress Awards Committee for our work on the Envigilant Sensor Platform. It validates our integrated approach to edge computing and visualization,” said Jakub Duch, Vice President for International Sales at Allied Telesis.

“As more enterprises explore the potential of IoT as a process automation and productivity driver, the demand for powerful edge computing solutions will increase. We think we’re in a good position with Envigilant and the MEC judges seem to agree.”

This is the second time that Allied Telesis has received multiple awards for its advanced data exchange solutions this year. At the NFV Europe Conference in June 2017, Allied Telesis collected two first-place awards and a runner-up award for its AMF Security (AMF-Sec) network management and security solution.
