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.
“Enea Edge IP is extremely strategic for inq. We have been working steadily towards being a global edge leader and have embarked on having the edge as part of our core strategy. While inq. has been mainly focusing on edge applications such as AI, SDN, NFV and IoT, with the IP licenced from Enea inq. will now be able to enter the edge orchestration space.” Andile Ngcaba, Executive Chairman of inq.
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, and Hypervisors to Edge Orchestration and Applications.
“inq. is now building a product roadmap for ENEA Edge in the inq. Development Centre in India. We will be able to provide business and technical support to ENEA Edge’s existing client base and a licensing arrangement for Global Telco’s, ISPs and MSPs for uCPE and Whitebox deployment.” Pramod Venkatesh, Group CTO inq.
