Cisco, GDIT to deliver private 5G networks for public sector edge computing

Cisco and General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) announced the extension of a 30-year partnership that will give GDIT the ability to leverage Cisco’s private 5G services for exploring edge computing use cases in government agencies.

As part of the collaboration, GDIT’s decade-long exposure to government agencies in areas such as in artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, and enterprise IT will be paired with Cisco’s secure and reliable private 5G network to enable an end-to-end solution to achieve digital transformation, the companies said.

“Adding to our portfolio of 5G capabilities, Cisco’s Private 5G offering provides GDIT with the flexibility, security, and resiliency that is required for the government sector,” said Robert C. Smallwood, vice president of digital modernization and enterprise IT services at GDIT. “This collaboration will create a force multiplier effect that addresses our agency customers’ edge computing and IoT requirements.”

Cisco Private 5G services offer reliable networks with high speed, low latency and device segmentation that 5G can provide to help increase in business productivity, the company claims. The solution is designed to minimize the upfront cost by reducing the operational overhead that comes with private network ownership.

The company said it is offing operational simplicity through an easy-to-use user interface and device visibility. The solution provides SLA management with cloud-based configuration and monitoring across all the cellular end nodes. As a service, Cisco Private 5G is an end-to-end solution with support for a multitude of IoT sensors and gateways, and also provides device management software along with monitoring tools and dashboards.

“This unique partnership combines the power of Cisco Private 5G with GDIT’s mission knowledge of customer 5G use-cases to provide a truly comprehensive solution that meets a diverse set of agency requirements,” said Carl DeGroote, vice president of federal sales at Cisco. “We’re excited to continue our relationship with GDIT and work together to extend Cisco’s Private 5G solution to the public sector.”

Cisco recently announced a collaboration with Verizon that showed cellular and mobile edge computing technology used for autonomous driving solutions without needing the use of physical roadside units to extend radio signal coverage.
