Google Cloud has signed a partnership agreement with Singapore operator StarHub. Under the terms of the deal, Google Cloud will support StarHub’s cloud-native network for enterprises in Singapore. StarHub will pilot Google Distributed Cloud Edge (GDC Edge) and a Nokia 5G standalone core to create a multi-access, software-based 5G cloud core network. 

GDC Edge builds on Google Cloud’s existing telecommunications services, and is expected to enable StarHub to run core network functions at the edgein its network. This brings Google Cloud’s stable and secure infrastructure closer to where data is being generated and consumed. By moving its 5G core network to a cloud platform, StarHub aims to enable its subscribers and enterprise customers across manufacturing, retail, hospitality, transportation, and other industries to use its software-driven network. 

StarHub also plans to use Google Cloud’s expertise in data management, AI, and ML across its network operations. As part of the collaboration, StarHub will be able to break down information silos and drive insights from this interoperability.
