Federated Wireless Inc., a shared spectrum and private wireless leader, and World Wide Technology (WWT) announced a partnership this month to deliver turnkey private wireless LTE and 5G solutions to enterprises and carriers. The partnership brings accessibility, flexibility and simplicity to private wireless LTE and 5G consumption models.
WWT will combine Federated Wireless’ private wireless services with enterprise applications and professional services to deliver tailored solutions to its customers across industry sectors and use cases. The Federated Wireless private wireless bundles, backed by the industry’s largest shared spectrum partner ecosystem, can include Federated Wireless’ new Neutral Host 2.0™ solution, which will allow enabling enterprises to extend cellular carrier coverage across facilities and cover wireless connectivity gaps.
Flexibility and speed to market have become more important as large enterprises look to deploy advanced automation technology and carriers seek to increase robust connectivity and data rates. Federated Wireless’ turnkey private wireless solutions and network knowledge, combined with WWT’s depth and experience in enterprise-grade deployments, eliminate deployment complexity. Together, the organizations look to deliver cost-effective, flexible, cloud-scalable, and secure private wireless solutions to the enterprise and carrier markets.
“Our customers require easy-to-consume Private Wireless Networking solutions, and we are excited to partner with Federated Wireless to deliver on those needs,” said Bob Hrbek, practice manager for wireless, access and mobility at WWT.
The partnership will focus on enterprises with the greatest opportunity to innovate and implement digital transformation in areas such as manufacturing, logistics, mission-critical communications, workforce automation and more. WWT’s Advanced Technology Center (ATC) will be used to simulate multiple use cases within private network demo environments. ATC enables end-to-end solutions from inception to testing, staging, integration, validation, deployment, and managed solution capabilities.
“As the private wireless ecosystem expands, customers face multiple vendor offerings with a variety of components that are only a subset of what’s needed to assemble a comprehensive private wireless ecosystem,” said Kurt Schaubach, Federated chief technology officer. “These fragmented solutions add unnecessary hurdles and complexity to new technology deployments. Our partnership with WWT brings flexibility, simplicity and scale to enterprise and carrier-grade deployments, with a single source of best-in-class private wireless technology and network deployment expertise to expand service offerings at a hyperscale pace.”
These turnkey private wireless solutions are available now through WWT. Packaged starter kits are ready to deploy in a matter of days on the customer site. The solutions are professionally installed and managed, allowing customers to focus on their daily operations and see the benefits and positive business outcomes of an advanced private wireless network right away.
