EdgePresence is currently deploying its EdgePod data centers across 20 markets throughout the U.S. EdgePods are purpose-built edge compute micro data centers, comprehensively and compactly designed to include critical power, distribution, fire suppression, physical security and cooling. EdgePods are anchored at the base of cell towers, data centers, and enterprise campus locations serving as a turnkey solution for businesses looking to implement a flexible and dynamic edge strategy.

Since the introduction of EdgePod’s one year ago at Connectivity Expo, EdgePresence has been building and strengthening partnerships with companies from carriers, cloud providers, data center operators, interconnection services and more to facilitate enterprise-ready solutions to support the growth of edge compute requirements enabled by 5G. EdgePresence EdgePods are currently operational and tenant-ready in Jacksonville Florida with installs planned for May and June in Austin and Denver respectively. The company’s six month plan adds 17 additional markets including Arlington, Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Huntsville, Kansas City Missouri, Lafayette, Las Vegas, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Raleigh, Rochester Minnesota, San Diego, Santa Rosa, Tampa and Trenton New Jersey.

“As the promise of 5G begins to be realized, tower operators, carriers, and enterprise companies are reconfiguring their networks to support edge computing and the ecosystem required to support content and cloud at the edge,”  comments Doug Recker, CEO of EdgePresence. “To properly build an edge compute ecosystem will require thousands of micro edge data centers. We are all going to have to collaborate and work together to make this happen efficiently, effectively and affordably.
