Companies to Provide Private 4G/5G and Core Solutions to Address the Automation & Orchestration of Next-Generation Networks
SAN JOSE, Calif. and LONDON, UK – Nov. 17, 2020 – Robin.io, the 5G and application automation platform company, and Quortus, Ltd. a leading provider of innovative private edge, LTE, and 5G network solutions, today announced a strategic partnership through which the companies will jointly offer solutions that significantly reduce the costs, complexities and deployment times for enterprises, mobile network operators (MNOs) and communication service providers (CSPs) rolling out next-gen networks and services.
Private LTE/5G offers new opportunities for enterprises to build wireless communication solutions that meet their specific demands, while spectrum for these Private LTE/5G applications is now available in multiple countries. Compared with traditional wireless solutions, a cloud-native Private LTE network offers better coverage, more throughput and improved security. These solutions are currently being deployed on campuses, manufacturing plants, hospitals and on behalf of any organization that needs to deliver secure and high-performance broadband wireless access to multiple buildings and IoT endpoints.
By working in close strategic partnership, Quortus and Robin enable the expedited deployment of cloud-native mobile core networks which deliver all the advantages of Private LTE/5G, in an operationally optimized solution. A Quortus and Robin partnership significantly reduces the development time for Systems Integrators, CSPs and other Strategic Alliances by enabling a smooth path to integration and orchestration, which greatly eases the cost and operational effort needed for productization.
“Enterprises, MNOs and CSPs are quickly identifying the specific areas of need for cloud-native private networks and finding that the opportunities for successful, high-impact deployments are plentiful,” said Partha Seetala, CEO of Robin.io. “Cloud native private networks have a number of coverage, security and bandwidth advantages that make these solutions ideal as organizations tackle next generation connectivity. The partnership between Quortus and Robin will enable the companies to offer a powerful cloud-native mobile core network that is fully automated, lightweight and ready to deploy in days, not weeks.”
