We are simplifying the path to a smarter, more connected world - one edge at a time.

We believe that tomorrow’s smarter solutions require more than simply extending today’s centralized cloud architectures closer to users. Smarter solutions require thinking that starts at the network edge inwards to the cloud – not from the cloud out. And not just one cloud, but whichever clouds and providers you want or need. Because it is Your Edge.

Veea makes edge computing simpler. By integrating connectivity and processing technologies within an easily deployed, easily managed platform – the Veea Edge Platform™ – we provide everything you need to quickly and easily tap into the power and benefits of Edge Computing, where and when you need it.

Veea is blazing the path to new levels of integration, performance, and value at the network edge, resulting in operational simplicity, lower cost, and greater user satisfaction.

Our Commitment

sustainable development goals

“The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries -developed and developing -in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth –all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.”

Veea stands behind and supports the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
