VEM-20

The VEM-20 is a high density outdoor pedestal solution for the deployment of edge applications. Unlike many telecom pedestal solutions, the VEM-20 is designed with data center operators in mind and provides solutions and features commonly found in enterprise data centers. The VEM-20 offers two physically and logically isolated 10 kW racks. The VEM-20 has also been specifically designed to support 5G O-RAN, serving as many as 20 towers from each pedestal. A set of carefully-located VEM-20s become an ideal platform on which to build a virtualized 5G network and serve it with local breakout, exchange and edge compute applications.
