inq., a leading global Edge solutions provider, has today announced an agreement with Enea AB to licence the Enea Edge Intellectual Property (IP) through a perpetual software development licence.
Enea Edge is an open virtualisation and management platform for edge devices such as white box uCPEs. It provides a minimum footprint and focuses on maximum performance, specifically around networking and edge applications.
With access to the Enea Edge’s Software Development Kit and IP, this now positions inq. as an Edge Technology company with full-stack ownership, from Devices, Hypervisors to Edge Orchestration and Applications.
inq. has worked closely with Enea over the last two years and utilised Enea Edge as the virtualisation and management software foundation for the inq. universal CPE platform. This licencing agreement will allow inq. to build its roadmap, which can also be offered to other users of Enea Edge.
Enea Edge has the potential to be used in building virtualised networks; therefore, inq. can also work with ISPs and MNOs in Europe and Africa to fast-track the virtualisation of their networks and can take a lead role as part of 5G deployments by providing the orchestration layer
