Why choose Us

We are an experienced team that has participated in several co-innovation projects with Cisco in the area of unified IoT orchestration.

We inherit the technology that we developed at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) in the past, and the knowledge that we generated through several projects in the IoT and VNF orchestration domain, in different sectors, including Smart Cities, Oil & Gas and Utilities.

Our Mission

NearbyComputing aims to provide advanced orchestration services for massive IoT deployments enabling simplified management of very complex scenarios, in which the IT/OT ecosystem can be managed in a simple and transparent way.

ETSI MANO, ETSI MEC, Open Fog Reference Archtiecture (IEEE 1934) and other standardization efforts are taken as the foundation for effective orchestration. Our solutions are based on open architectures and use a commercial-grade orchestration engine to deliver reliable results.

What you get

We deliver solutions for the convergence of Cloud, Fog, MEC, Edge and Networks, using a unfied orchestration engine that provides advanced security features, nZTP capabilities to onboard new devices, multi-tenancy support and support for cross-domain deployments.

In the past, we participated in an ambitious project with the city of Barcelona to manage street cabinets and emergency vehicles using a unified IoT orchestration fabric.

End-to-End Orchestration

From the Cloud to the Edge, including the network and all computing capacities
Image

Complex IoT environments cross technology domains, and demand coordinated deployments across the Cloud, DataCenters, Fog/MEC equipment and Edge devices, as well as Network configurations.

Unified Management

Simplified Management of Cloud, MEC, Fog, Edge & Network
Image

Our unique orchestration engine allows the unified management of a mix of technologies: Cloud, MEC, Fog, Edge and Network, and allows that simplified deployment processes can result in extremely complex and ambitious IoT applications.

Physical & Virtual Infrastructure

Covering physical and virtual assets, including VNFs
Image

Today, infrastrucutures are software-defined, including networks, storage and compute nodes. Our orchestration engine can manage all the dimensions of the problem: from SDN controllers, to advanced node composition combining cutting edge acceleration platforms.

AI-driven & Service-Oriented

Services are at the core of the system, and they can be deployed using AI-driven selection criteria
Image

Complex services require advanced deployment strategies: our orchestration engine can be driven either by deterministic parameters (e.g. 'run a component in a given node of the city') but also by advanced AI-based methods (e.g. 'I need an instance of this service to be deployed in the nodes that are closest to the street where more traffic is observed using image recognition methods').
