Circle B for Telecommunications Providers

Hyperscale inspired telco solutions for the Edge and central data centers.

Telecommunications are evolving, and providers must innovate to stay ahead. The demand for 5G and Edge computing is changing the industry at an unprecedented rate, and telcos are working at breakneck speed to help customers leverage these cutting-edge technologies.
As customers increasingly demand cloud-based solutions, reduced latency, and 5G compatibility, telcos need more compute power than ever before. They also need to bring compute resources closer to the customer to ensure fast, seamless service for IoT, OT, and smart device infrastructure.
Critically, telcos need to do this while maintaining complete security and transparency, capitalizing on the latest technologies to serve new and existing markets while protecting customer data.

OCP for the Edge

Circle B brings the latest Open Compute Project (OCP) hardware to the European market, equipping telcos with everything they need to capitalize on 5G and Edge technologies.

Based on Nokia-designed hardware, Circle B empowers telcos with the most powerful Edge solutions on the market. OpenEdge hardware is proven to boost speed and security, and reduce energy and maintenance costs—while delivering the services customers need to compete.

Deliver Powerful Edge & 5G Solutions

Collect data from IoT/OT devices at lightning speed, powered by Wiwynn EP100-1S servers. Support the latest use cases in manufacturing, automotive, healthcare, and more.

Our Edge solutions use proprietary software to store all data points from connected machines while maintaining security and integrity.

Slash Operating Costs

Multi-node Edge servers are small and powerful. Their modular, toolless design provides total flexibility, simplifies maintenance, and allows rapid rack changes to support business needs.

Best of all, OCP hardware allows more room for cables and improves airflow. This improves energy efficiency, extends hardware lifespan, and lowers costs for your organization.

Total Security & Compliance Control

Our OpenEdge servers aren’t vendor-locked and come free from black box firmware. That means you get full control of your servers from the ground up, so you can maintain the security, privacy, and integrity of customer data.

Deploy & Scale Fast

Our modular OpenEdge hardware is fast and simple to deploy and maintain. Organize, build, and rebuild racks to support customer needs while saving on maintenance costs.

Meet Sustainability Targets

Circle B’s white space design promotes airflow, reducing heat and energy use. That means a reduced carbon footprint for your organization, helping you hit ambitious sustainability goals.

Power Edge Solutions with Proven Hardware

Telco leaders are already on board with OCP and enjoying the cost, performance, and maintenance benefits. Now, this proven hardware is available to your organization.

OCP for Telco Data Centers

It’s not all about the Edge. Modern telcos still rely on central data centers to support critical customer needs—and they need potent, secure, efficient hardware to power them.

OCP hardware was developed by Facebook starting in 2009 to cut energy consumption and costs, and support its massive customer base. The project developed new infrastructure that was drastically more energy and cost-efficient to build and run than legacy hardware.

SaaS giants like Google and IBM quickly jumped on board—along with telco leaders like Nokia.

Circle B makes this hyperscale technology available to your organization.
