Extending enterprise applications to the mobile edge is a significant task, particularly given the pace of change, growth, and fragmentation of the connected device landscape. Without the right architecture, the complexity of building collaborative enterprise mobile applications is daunting.
Collaborative mobile applications require a cohesive, flexible architecture for seamless interoperability and support for a mixture of peer-to-peer, peer-to-group, group-to-group, and client-server communications.
Voyager™ provides a cohesive architecture and a consistent abstraction layer across all connected devices and platforms. Voyager™ is enterprise hardened and edge optimized with a small customizable footprint for constrained edge devices. Connected devices can become clients and servers. This architecture gives solution developers maximum design flexibility and platform interoperability.
Voyager™ accelerates development of applications that collaborate at the edge of the network.
