Singtel and Broadcom Partner to Bring Seamless Connectivity and Edge Computing to Mission-Critical Applications


Singtel and VMware, recently acquired by Broadcom Inc., are partnering to enable enterprises to seamlessly manage their connectivity and cloud infrastructure through Singtel Paragon, the industry’s first all-in-one orchestration platform for 5G and edge cloud.

The ultra-low latency, high reliability and network slicing capabilities of Singtel 5G, combined with VMware advanced virtualisation, cloud computing and software-defined edge technologies, allows enterprises to rapidly deploy and manage mission-critical applications. This is especially advantageous to businesses operating in the smart cities and telemedicine domains, as well as those operating automated factories, where network and application proximity is critical to real-time, high-performance operations.

Through the partnership, enterprises using applications and services leveraging the VMware Edge Cloud Orchestrator will be able to quickly tap onto Singtel 5G without having to redesign their applications.

In support of the partnership, Singtel and Broadcom will establish a Joint Innovation Lab. The lab will bring together 5G and edge-native application design experts, alongside commercial model specialists, to ensure enterprises can seamlessly onboard their VMware-based applications to Paragon. Going forward, the Lab aims to catalyse innovation by facilitating the development and testing process for new applications, thus fast-tracking time to market.
