Lumen Technologies has launched the Lumen Edge Compute platform to enable customers to extend high-bandwidth, data-intensive applications to the cloud edge, the company reported on Tuesday. 

"This is a game changer – real-time application hosting, data processing and storage capabilities for enterprises that need to deliver emerging technologies and applications at the edge," said Shaun Andrews, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Lumen Technologies. 

Lumen Edge Compute will leverage the company’s global fiber network, on-demand networking and integrated security to provide efficient deployment of applications and workloads at the edge. With Lumen’s solution, customers can leverage low-latency, secure and scalable high-performance capabilities through bare metal-as-a-service on the Lumen platform.

The company’s platform will also provide a pay-as-you-go server hardware hosted in distributed locations and connected to the Lumen global fiber network. Lumen’s platform will feature advanced application performance from running on edge nodes designed for single-digit millisecond latency over the Lumen global fiber network.

Lumen has also improved control and performance, enabling customers to run applications and workloads on a unified platform and enhanced security and connectivity with dedicated, single tenancy servers. The servers will isolate and protect data and deliver high-performance networking across the company's global backbone.

"Enterprises around the globe can now leverage highly distributed bare metal on the Lumen platform, giving them more capability to drive new digital experiences for their customers," Andrews added.
