Montreal, Feb. 13th 2019 – Edgegap launch Arbitrium, the first software to beat latency in online video games. Using “Edge Computing”, Arbitrium allows studios to automate the decision-making process and deployment of their gaming servers throughout hundreds of data centers. The result is server instances running closer from players, and cost saving by only running instances when needed.
Edge computing is a distributed architecture in which micro-datacenters are deployed throughout the territory instead of using centralized infrastructures like cloud computing. Arbitrium leverages edge computing; each time a video game studio sends a request for a new match, Arbitrium uses those distributed infrastructures and measure potential locations to run the match. Using multiple data points and measurements, it makes a decision within seconds on the best datacenter to use. It can then start a game instance, and monitor results throughout the duration of the match. Each game is optimized, allowing for minimal latency for each player. This patent pending solution is available worldwide and supports multiple type of hardware and infrastructures.
Proud of its first place at “Multi-access Edge Computing” congress hackathon in Berlin in 2018, Edgegap’s Arbitrium will be premiere in Barcelona at “Mobile World Congress”. A live demo will be available on site.
Edgegap is a software startup based in Montreal, Canada, which specialized in software development for edge and cloud computing. To find out more about Edgegap and Arbitrium, visit http://www.edgegap.com
After a lot of pizzas, off-hour works and bug fixes, the team delivered! We are thrilled and excited to release V.1.0 of Arbitrium. Arbitrium is the best software to allow gaming studios to get the most out of Edge Computing infrastructure and improve player’s experiences. Go dig our website for more and reachout to test it out yourself!

Check our quick video to learn what the concept is, and give us a call to try it out. We have the software running in various environments and are executing proof of concept and pilots in many countries around the world.
Edgegap will be in Barcelona next month for Mobile World Congress! Our newly released software, Arbitrium, will be demo-ed on the floor with running games and multiple edge computing sites. The whole demo will also be orchestrated by HPE Service Director. Come see us at HPE booth or contact us now to book a meeting and a live demo!

Edgegap has been selected to deploy our Edge gaming solution in Encqor infrastructure: https://www.encqor.ca/ We will be able to demonstrate online gaming on Ericsson 5G infrastructure along with Ciena edge computing. First live demo on 5G will be ready by the end of January, with Ciena integration in February/March. It will be available in every Encqor site in Canada!
Edgegap was invited to participate to the Open Edge Computing workshop last week at Carnegie Mellon University. We were happy to provide our perspective on Edge Computing. By enabling online video games to leverage Edge Computing infrastructure, we as developers are facing challenges and requirements which we happily shared with the teams involved. We are looking forward to keep working with the industry to shape the future of Edge Computing!
4 weeks after launching my startup, we won 1st place in Berlin at MEC Congress Hackathon! Crazy! Thanks to Huawei and Saguna for supporting the integration with their platform. I’m still looking for more developers, hit me up if you want to join the fun!
