Zinwave has announced the availability of their OnGo products that will see several of its Fortune 100 customers pilot private LTE technology over CBRS spectrum. The OnGo technology is a CBRS (3.5GHz) brand and certification program established by the CBRS Alliance that will allow for the densification of wireless networks and deliver unprecedented speed and reliability.
“Wi-Fi is not meeting the expectations of businesses when it comes to matching the demands of these applications,” said Scott Willis, CEO, Zinwave. “An OnGo network enables IoT applications and has an advantage in providing the coverage, capacity, security and reliability future corporate networks require. In an era where businesses and the industry demands more bandwidth, lower latency, true mobility and superior security, OnGo is going to fill the gaps where Wi-Fi is unable to meet demand.”
The initiative will enable some of Zinwave’s existing customers, from the consumer technology, airline and automotive manufacturing industries, to deploy a private LTE network over OnGo equipment. The OnGo solutions will provide private LTE connectivity to enable business-critical applications that have traditionally been run over corporate Wi-Fi.
The OnGo pilot follows the company’s demonstration of the technology at the CBRS Alliance meeting. Zinwave successfully demonstrated the highest quality 4K video display over its CBRS DAS and small cell in Washington D.C. At this meeting, Zinwave CTO Slavko Djukic showed how Zinwave’s unique and patented wideband DAS is capable of overcoming some of the questions around the implementation of OnGo technology. As a complement to its DAS, Zinwave also unveiled its OnGo Small Cell as the newest product offering to support enterprise needs.
“OnGo is in the very early stages and various use cases are in discussion, but we’re enabling our customers to be the first in their industries to embrace the technology,” said Slavko Djukic, CTO, Zinwave. “This is going to be the space to watch, and thanks to the release of our OnGo small cell and OnGo DAS, our customers will be the first to benefit from a private LTE network.”
With the new OnGo offerings, Zinwave is able to provide a DAS solution that supports private LTE that is seamlessly interoperable with commercial cellular and public safety frequencies. Additionally, with the 3.5GHz band being one of the ideal candidates supporting 5G, Zinwave’s platform is ready to prepare businesses for the arrival of 5G.
