Betacom and US Cellular claim the hybrid 5G service is an industry first
Betacom and US Cellular are claiming an industry first with their joint delivery of private/public hybrid 5G networks in the U.S. The pair said the hybrid service makes it possible for organizations with multiple sites across numerous locations to maintain connectivity between location cohesively and does so with “unmatched” security and control.
“The service provides security and control over business data, both on-premises and while roaming among company facilities. The solution establishes and maintains end-to-end security, utilizing virtual private networks (VPNs) to ensure that all data effectively remains on the customer premises while devices and sensors are in transit between locations,” said the companies. Therefore, they continued, the service works well for applications that require “the highest degrees of data and device security,” such as mission-critical Command, Control, Communication, Computers, and Intelligence (C4I) services and solutions.
Uptime and performance are assured for improved operational efficiency and productivity with Betacom-backed Service Level Agreements (SLAs), while US Cellular is providing data backhaul between sites.
“These new capabilities significantly accelerate the return on investment for digital transformation and modernization initiatives for organizations of all types, from enterprise to retail to government, and move the industry as a whole forward, faster,” stated Kim Kerr, senior vice president, enterprise sales and operations for US Cellular. She also said that the news will “establish a new bar for how the entire wireless industry thinks about, builds, delivers and utilizes wireless networks.”
