Michael White, Former Associate General Counsel of AT&T Mobility, Deepens the Telecommunications Expertise of EdgeMicro’s Advisory Board
Centreville, Virginia – January 31, 2018 – EdgeMicro, which has the first and only scalable approach for deploying micro data centers at the extreme edge of networks, has expanded its strategy team with Michael White, a highly-respected executive in the telecommunications industry who has served as in-house counsel to leading telecommunications companies for more than two decades. EdgeMicro has also achieved immediate market momentum by securing agreements with four global companies to collaborate on edge solutions—bringing content, IoT and cloud applications closer to mobile users.
“I could not be more enthusiastic about adding Michael to our Advisory Board. In his roles at AT&T Mobility and Bellsouth, he was at the center of initiatives that interconnected and expanded networks foundational to telecom and IT systems we all enjoy today,” said Mike Hagan, Co-Founder of EdgeMicro. “Michael’s strategic guidance will be invaluable as we move forward with our large-scale implementation of edge data centers, reducing latency to ‘zero’ while dramatically shrinking costs. We are assembling the best thought leaders in the industry, with luminaries like Anton Kapela, Josh Snowhorn, Jay Adelson and now Michael White.”
In addition to welcoming Mr. White to the advisory board, the company has executed LOI agreements with several content providers and leading Content Delivery Network (CDN) companies. EdgeMicro will work closely with each company’s engineering teams to design deployments of micro caches in North American markets and ultimately globally. Details of these agreements will be announced in the near future.
“Moving content and computing to the extreme edge of the network is a win-win-win for consumers, content providers and MNOs [Mobile Network Operators] because it reduces latency, makes content far more accessible, and reduces operating costs in a significant way,” said Greg Pettine, Co-Founder. “It has been rewarding to see our business model resonate so strongly with the stakeholders we are meeting with. These four agreements are the first step toward something big that transforms the mobile computing experience for everyone in a way that brings the future much, much closer.”
