SpiderCloud Wireless, Inc., a provider of scalable small cell systems for enterprises and venues, has introduced an enterprise small cell system that simultaneously offers LTE services on licensed spectrum and on the 3.5 GHz CBRS band.
SpiderCloud’s dual-mode (licensed and CBRS) system enables mobile operators and neutral host operators to build a footprint of CBRS small cells before CBRS capable connected devices are widely available. SpiderCloud’s dual-mode small cells will offer LTE service in the licensed band on day one, and CBRS radios can be turned on via software when the business case permits.
The CBRS network slice can be used either as a part of a single operator network, shared between multiple operators, or as a private enterprise network.
SpiderCloud’s dual-mode system utilizes the Qualcomm FSM chipset and has completed interoperability testing with Federated Wireless’ SAS.
SpiderCloud’s CBRS products will be ready for trials in the first quarter 2017 and will be commercially available in the second half of 2017.
Oracle has teamed up with Verizon to offer its customers a connection to the Oracle Cloud via Verizon’s Secure Cloud Interconnect.
With Verizon Secure Cloud Interconnect for Oracle FastConnect, customers can now connect to Oracle Cloud data center sites located in the U.S. and Europe. With Oracle’s Cloud facilities, in-region connectivity helps improve performance by reducing latency and providing strong quality of service.
Verizon’s Secure Cloud Interconnect for Oracle FastConnect also allows enterprises to take advantage of Software Defined Networking (SDN) capabilities to gain greater control and agility over their cloud environments. This includes consumption-based bandwidth, pre-provisioned on-demand resources, controlled application performance and varying classes of service that can be provisioned via Verizon’s Dynamic Network Manager.
Panasonic and Cradlepoint, a cloud-based network solutions company, announced the commercial availability of an integrated mobile computing and connectivity networking solution. Designed for public safety and EMS agencies as well as transportation and utilities industries, the mobile computing and connectivity solution supports both commercial 4G-LTE and the emerging FirstNet public safety networks based on Band-14.
The new solution combines Panasonic’s Toughbook devices with a Cradlepoint cloud-managed 4G-LTE router providing a “vehicle area network” to connect computers, cameras, sensors and telemetry interfaces together with access to commercial and emerging FirstNet broadband wireless networks.
The integrated mobile computing and connectivity solutions are currently available from authorized resellers at an MSRP of $900 for the LTE model and $2100 for the LTE+Band 14 model.
Republic Wireless, a hybrid Wi-Fi and cellular MVNO, said it will allow customers who buy Google’s new Pixel smartphone to activate the devices on its network starting the first day the phones are available later this month.
