Robin.io Joins Rural Cloud Initiative To Promote Digital Transformation

0

Robin.io and Trilogy Networks have announced a partnership through which Robin.io will join the Rural Cloud Initiative (RCI), a coalition of more than 60 network and edge innovation partners committed to promoting and accelerating the digital transformation of rural America.

As part of the alliance, Robin.io’s cloud native storage and software defined orchestration platform will be deployed on Trilogy’s distributed cloud infrastructure, including its ConEx edge delivery platform. It will help rural operators access RAN, Core and services in a matter of minutes instead of weeks.

The focus of RCI’s initial applications is to provide solutions that advance precision agriculture, improving the profitability, security and efficiency within the U.S. food supply chain.

Public and private 5G technology is key as the industry begins to deploy advanced applications and services like drones, robotics and intelligent sensors.

Under the Rural Cloud Initiative (RCI), Trilogy is partnering with network operators across rural America to extend the distributed cloud platform to the edge of their network.

Through the deployment of a virtualized network, connected to Trilogy’s nation-wide single network fabric, operators are well positioned to deploy their 5G networks.

Robin.io provides the cloud-native platform and the automation platform on which the RCI applications would be hosted and operated in Trilogy’s network fabric.
