Cox Edge Named “Contender” in Forrester Report


Cox Edge, the first full stack “last-mile” edge computing provider, announced that it has been named a Contender in The Forrester New Wave™: Edge Development Platforms, Q4 2021 report. This report, by Forrester Research, analyzes the most significant edge cloud platform providers in the market today, and is, in our opinion, a notable achievement for Cox Edge, coming just three months after it went to market. 

Cox Edge provides developers, startups and enterprise customers with industry-leading low latency compute and storage platforms in the growing and exciting edge-cloud market. Cox Edge is focused on enabling segments such as Enterprise IT, financial services, retail, IOT developers, Media & Entertainment, and online gaming.  Cox edge also provides an edge-based Content Distribution Network (CDN) with metro-area points of presence in dozens of cities.

‘We are thrilled to be placed in the contender category of the 2021 Forrester New Wave: Edge Development Platforms report’, commented Ron Lev, General Manager Cox Edge & Executive Director, New Growth & Development. “We believe being named a contender three months after we launched demonstrates the strides we’ve taken to make Cox Edge the premier edge-cloud computing platform and how telecom infrastructures can amplify edge computing overall.”

The Forrester New Wave™: Edge Development Platforms report states that “[Cox Edge] offers support for a broad set of edge workloads. Cox Edge supports serverless, container, VM-based and bare metal edge compute services as well as edge data capabilities. Cox Edge also provides strong support for “Day 2+” operations and makes it easy for developers to choose which POPs they want to deploy workloads on.” 

Additionally, Forrester states that Cox Edge… 
“Is the best fit for companies that need maximum edge workload flexibility and control. Development teams that are targeting the U.S. market, want to support a wide variety of edge workloads, and that want control over what nodes they deploy to will find Cox Edge a good fit.”

Cox Edge leverages Cox Communications’ extensive fiber “last-mile” infrastructure and network with their strategic network partners, allowing potentially millions of buildings to benefit from having clients, their customers, and Cox Edge’s data centers on the same physical network, resulting in reduced bandwidth transport costs and ultra-low latency, even when clients and customers are separated by long distances. 

Launched in July 2021, Cox Edge provides Bare Metal as a Service (BMaaS), Virtual Machines, Edge Containers and Kubernetes, and geo distributed data base, and other cloud-native services to customers looking for the next level of latency performance.
