Vapor IO Wins 2020 IoT Edge Computing Excellence Award from IoT Evolution World for its Kinetic Edge Exchange – EIN News

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, October 15, 2020 / — Vapor IO creators of the Kinetic Edge® platform, the first fully-integrated hardware and software platform for edge colocation, exchange and networking services, announced today that their Kinetic Edge Exchange (KEX) received the 2020 IoT Edge Computing Excellence Award from IoT Evolution World.

The IoT Evolution World award recognizes leaders in the growing edge computing space. Companies selected for this award have proven that their products are enabling advanced IoT deployments by offering edge solutions that bring real-time computing, data availability, analytics, AI and machine learning to edge devices.

Vapor IO’s KEX is the world’s first software-defined system for interconnection in edge locations, capable of bridging the gaps and improving the efficiency of connections between IoT devices and cloud or other compute services. Vapor IO’s KEX functions as a virtual “meet me” room at the edge, unlocking the power of next generation services through a software-defined interconnection system. Any two networks in a Kinetic Edge market can cross-connect in edge locations via a software-driven system that can be operated remotely and programmatically. The KEX is part of a larger edge infrastructure designed by Vapor IO to meet the growing demand for data delivery with very low-latency connectivity.

“Vapor IO is building out the necessary edge infrastructure at the intersection of the wired and wireless networks, where the Kinetic Edge Exchange sits,” said Matt Trifiro, CMO of Vapor IO. “We are proud to offer a solution that enables so many of our partners, including service operators, cloud providers, CDNs, regional colocation and interconnection services, and other innovative enterprises to interconnect through software. The KEX optimizes bi-directional traffic from edge to core, providing unfettered low-latency access to existing 4G LTE and emerging 5G wireless networks.”

For companies deploying IoT solutions, Vapor IO’s Kinetic Edge couples the latency characteristics of on-premises data centers with the flexibility and economics of fully-managed shared facilities. The Kinetic Edge creates a “near prem” environment that makes it easy and cost-effective for enterprises to use hyperscale compute in close proximity to their facilities, accelerating their IoT efforts without the complexity and capital expense of on-premises servers.

“The solutions selected for the IoT Evolution Edge Computing Excellence Award reflect innovation driving the fast-growing Internet of Things marketplace. It is my honor to congratulate Vapor IO for their innovative work and contribution to this rapidly evolving industry,” said Ken Briodagh, Editorial Director, IoT Evolution.
