VMware (now owned by Broadcom Inc.) and Singtel, have teamed up to help businesses manage their connectivity and cloud infrastructure more easily by leveraging their expertise in 5G, cloud infrastructure, and software-defined edge to provide a comprehensive MEC solution. This partnership promises to empower businesses worldwide, helping them navigate modern IT environments with ease, while driving digital transformation.

A Symbiotic Partnership

Singtel's 5G network offers ultra-low latency, high reliability, and network slicing capabilities, while VMware provides advanced virtualization, cloud computing, and software-defined edge solutions.

This combination allows companies to quickly deploy and manage critical applications, which is especially beneficial for businesses in smart cities, telemedicine, and automated factories where real-time operations are essential. Through this partnership, businesses using VMware Edge Cloud Orchestrator can seamlessly access Singtel's 5G network without needing to redesign their applications.

To support this collaboration, Singtel and Broadcom will establish a joint innovation lab. This lab will bring together experts in 5G and edge-native application design to help enterprises onboard their VMware-based applications to Paragon more easily. The lab aims to speed up the development and testing of new applications, ultimately reducing time to market.

Accelerating MEC Accessibility

In 2022, Singtel launched Paragon, a revolutionary platform that enables enterprises to tap into Singtel’s 5G network to activate network slices on demand, deploy mission critical applications on Singtel MEC (multi-access edge compute) as well as access a robust eco-system of partner applications, offering them unparalleled control and choices. Building on this, the Defined Edge Division at Broadcom mentioned that Singtel and Broadcom are leveraging their expertise in 5G, cloud infrastructure, and software-defined edge to provide a comprehensive MEC solution.

Bill Chang, CEO of Singtel’s Digital InfraCo, stated that Singtel's goal is to make the benefits of 5G and MEC accessible to all enterprises through innovations like the Paragon platform. The positive response to Paragon in various markets shows its effectiveness, and the partnership with VMware and Broadcom will allow them to extend these benefits to more telco partners and enterprise customers.

Together, they are offering Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Container as a Service (CaaS) to help businesses power their edge-native applications. Both companies believe in the importance of network programmability at the software-defined edge to enable dynamic and on-demand connectivity with the lowest latency.
