Smart Homes

Provide Amazing, Immersive Experiences

Thing makers, content delivery networks, internet service providers and 5G service providers can accelerate content delivery and introduce new AI experiences to the smart home with compute resources closer to consumers.

Hedgehog Delivers Distributed Cloud Infrastructure to Support:

  • Media streaming
  • Immersive gaming
  • AI digital assistants
  • Smart appliances
  • Home security

Certified Platforms


Smart homes demand large amounts of bandwidth, and new services such as AR, security and gaming have strict latency needs. This creates technical challenges for service providers who need to place additional compute resources closer to the far edge, typically in 5G MEC equipment areas.

Far edge compute infrastructure needs to be capable of handling varying environmentals but need to be largely hands-off to minimize the need for local engineers. They can be dynamically reconfigured based on business need and use a common device sparing model to simplify hardware replacements.

Large data centers are the backbone of any organization that requires a large amount of compute. Operators seek the efficiency and economics enjoyed by the major hyperscalers, but they can't afford to hire a large team of engineers and developers.

Hedgehog Open Network Fabric creates physical networks that can be operated with your existing Cloud Native tools. Because Open Network Fabric uses SONiC as a network operating system, multiple vendors can be considered, opening up supply chain options.

How Hedgehog Helps

Hedgehog creates physical networks with a range of different deployment options to match each location’s technical requirements.

Hedgehog Modernizes Data Center Networking

Hedgehog Open Network Fabric eliminates the need for proprietary networking software and specialized network engineers. Cloud infrastructure teams can operate their own infrastructure with cloud native software and eliminate brittle proprietary operations tools.
