T-Mobile and Lumen Technologies are collaborating to expand their existing relationship by leveraging T-Mobile’s 5G mobile network to augment Lumen’s Edge Computing platform, helping enterprises effectively build, manage and scale applications across highly distributed environments.
With this approach, according to the announcement, enterprises would have the ability to extend applications across a range of environments, including hundreds of thousands of on-net enterprise locations on the Lumen fiber network, with T-Mobile’s industry leading 5G network. As part of this collaboration, T-Mobile will also become a preferred wireless connectivity partner for Lumen, allowing for a more flexible and reliable connectivity solution for all enterprises.
“By pairing America’s largest and fastest 5G network with Lumen’s enterprise solutions, we can break down industry barriers and deliver unparalleled network reach to enterprise and government organizations looking to optimize their applications across networks,” explains Mike Katz, EVP of T-Mobile for Business. “With our leading 5G network, Lumen and T-Mobile have the opportunity to accelerate business innovation in an era where the network is more critical than ever.”
This collaboration builds on T-Mobile and Lumen’s history of working together to deliver customer solutions, including T-Mobile’s use of Lumen’s fiber network connectivity and Lumen’s use of T-Mobile’s Fixed Wireless as part of its network access portfolio.
Both companies note they will continue to drive innovation in this space through T-Mobile’s labs and Tech Experience Center and the Lumen Edge Experience Center.
