BitBox USA and EdgeMicro partner on distributed edge infrastructure management



hyperscale CAPEX ExtremeCloud IQ helps organisations automate end-to-end, edge-to-DC network operations

Integrating the BitBox IoT Platform as the unified solution to monitor and manage distributed infrastructure, enables EdgeMicro’s micro data centres’ rollout to hundreds of sites in North America and thousands of locations globally.

EdgeMicro’s integration of the BitBox IoT platform allows users to collect, organise and monitor data sets from distributed critical infrastructure such as EdgeMicro’s remote, lights out facilities.

“The innovative design of the BitBox IoT platform allows EdgeMicro to simplify distributed infrastructure management for providers and address latency and backhaul challenges for mobile network operators and content providers serving mobile internet users,” said Michael Skurla, CTO, BitBox USA.

“Furthermore, our IoT platform allows EdgeMicro to scale and manage thousands of globally distributed facilities with ease, while limiting on-site truck-rolls for diagnostic purposes.”

The platform’s BitBox Edge Appliance easily installs in any facility, telecoms shelter, or edge location. Its BitEngine cloud portal sorts and stores all the collected data from globally deployed edge sites, while the BitAPI offers authorization-based access to the enterprise data collection in a single documented API for web-based, micro-services analytics and third-party applications.

“BitBox IoT Platform’s high reliability, simple deployment, and multiple physical plant systems monitoring ability was critical in expediting the scaling deployment and management of our micro data centres anywhere,” said Loren Zweig, EdgeMicro vice president of operations.

“The integration allows us to seamlessly make simple or complex physical plant changes and updates to our micro data centres concurrently as we scale, or through a change management process activity, such as adding more UPS equipment, a generator, or additional rack PDUs, whatever it takes to satisfy our customers’ needs.”
