MobiledgeX first announced its platform in February when it launched its first public edge network at six Deutsche Telekom sites in Germany.
The edge computing company is open sourcing some of the code through the Telecom Infra Project.
The new group advances Vapor IO’s Kinetic Edge architecture, which uses software-defined interconnection and high-speed networking to combine multiple micro-data centers into a single, virtual facility.
The telecom giants will invest a like amount in DT's MobiledgeX edge computing subsidiary and SK's partner ID Quantique, which uses quantum physics to secure communication transmissions.
The group will produce vendor-neutral APIs and software tools focused on mobile functions running on edge infrastructure.
