Betacom, a private wireless solutions provider, has partnered with Qualcomm Technologies, a 5G and wireless communications company. Through an integrated delivery model, the partnership will leverage each other’s strengths in private wireless connectivity and device management solutions. Betacom combines its 5G-as-a-Service with Qualcomm Technologies’ customizable automation and management, RAN and device platforms as part of the relationship.
The co-developed solution provides access to an end-to-end private network service that has been tested and validated. Betacom will give the network design, delivery and management and Qualcomm Technologies will provide the 5G private network RAN automation technology. The companies say that customers can explore business opportunities and reap the benefits of the 5G network with the new solution.
“Our latest technology innovations, including our RAN automation and management offering added to our portfolio through the acquisition of Cellwize, coupled with collaboration from companies like Betacom, fuels the proliferation of 5G private network benefits for enterprises,” stated Gerardo Giaretta, senior director of product management at Qualcomm Technologies.
Logistics provider Teltech Group is among the first customers to leverage the combination of Betacom 5G-as-a-Service and Qualcomm Technologies’ extensive ecosystem. According to the Teltech Group’s CEO, Lisa Hanlon-Knight, the private network service combination gives users the confidence to speed up 5G connectivity adoption.
Betacom’s 5G-as-a-Service is a fully managed, end-to-end private wireless service that gives enterprise customers a high-performance 5G network. It also includes network management via cloud-based security and a service operations center built on Zero Trust. Known for providing wireless infrastructure to mid and large enterprises, the company also supports the growing demand for automation in manufacturing, airlines and warehousing sectors.
“We look forward to working closely with Qualcomm Technologies to bring the benefits of private networks to more businesses across the entire U.S. supply chain,” said Johan Bjorklund, CEO at Betacom. “This collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies will help the U.S. move even faster to elevate its place in the world economy through realization of the benefits of Industry 4.0.”
Betacom has previously supported adopting private cellular network technologies for Industry 4.0. For example, earlier this year, Betacom and Google Cloud deployed 5G-as-a-Service for GDC Edge customers.
