Barcelona, Spain, May 2024

Alea company

Nearby Computing, the leading platform for Edge Computing Orchestration and Automation, and Alea, a mission-critical communications platform for the public safety industry, have entered into a strategic collaboration aimed at automating and orchestrating Alea’s All-in-One lifecycle applications through the innovative NearbyOne platform.

MCXPTT (Mission Critical Communications Push-to-Talk) is a complete solution for the Mission Critical and Business Critical Communication compliant to the 3GPP Mission Critical Services Specifications supporting voice, video and data communications.

Deploying Alea’s MCXPTT app with the industry-leader platform for Edge Computing Orchestration and automation, NearbyOne, significantly reduces entry barriers, operational complexities, and associated deployment costs. As a result, applications can be deployed with unparalleled ease, speed, and cost-effectiveness. significant increase from 5% in 2022.

Concretely two main benefits are twofold deploying Alea’s applications in conjunction with NearbyOne: Firstly, the utilization of a single instance of NearbyOne infrastructure allows for the efficient operation over multiple streams, leading to evident cost optimization. Secondly, the deployment process has been significantly improved, reducing installation time from an average of around 15 days to just 1 day. These enhancements reflect our commitment to streamlining operations and maximizing efficiency.

The burgeoning interest and adoption of edge computing across various industries, coupled with the maturation of enabling technologies, underscore the importance of this strategic alliance. Infrastructure and operations leaders are urged to collaborate closely with their lines of business to embrace edge computing and explore solutions that expedite deployments while ensuring scalability.

“By 2027, 20% of large enterprises will have deployed an edge management and orchestration (EMO) solution, a significant increase from the less than 1% adoption rate in 2023”.

Gartner, 2023

Nearby Computing and Alea are jointly committed to ushering in a new era of efficiency and cost-effectiveness within the realm of mission-critical communications. Through streamlined processes and optimized resource utilization, Nearby Computing and Alea endeavour to enhance operational agility, enabling businesses to thrive in today’s dynamic digital landscape. Together, they are dedicated to driving innovation and unlocking the boundless possibilities of edge computing for mission-critical communication applications across industries.
