SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EdgeQ, a leader in 5G wireless infrastructure, today announced it has been recognized in the Cool Vendors for Communications Service Providers report by Gartner.

“We believe that this recognition from Gartner is another validating moment honoring our team’s dedication to revolutionizing wireless infrastructure,” said Vinay Ravuri, CEO and founder of EdgeQ. “We have scaled a mature, proven product into a robust business qualified by manufacturers and enterprises worldwide. Given the stringent requirements of delivering a carrier grade product, this is a phenomenal achievement. The capability to deploy 5G in a simple construct, driven solely by software, at breakthrough unit economics distinguishes us as an innovator nd category leader.”

According to Gartner, “Innovative players and new technologies in the areas of IoT, autonomous robotics and edge networking are disrupting the CSP market. CSP CIOs must work with the outsiders, startups and entrepreneurs that are offering these technologies to improve agility, performance and efficiency.” Customers design with EdgeQ to drive transformative 5G use cases, such as integrated access and backhaul for enterprises, multi-tenant neutral hosting, and non-terrestrial 5G network communications.
