Federated Wireless Launches 4G/5G Private Networks Through Azure and AWS

By Ken Briodagh February 21, 2020

Federated Wireless recently announced a new Connectivity-as-as-Service offering that reportedly lets U.S. enterprises buy and deploy private 4G and 5G networks with a single click through the Microsoft Azure Marketplace or Amazon Web Services. This managed service provided by Federated Wireless, which is known for its Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) offerings, includes discovery, planning, design, build, operation and support, which the company says are designed to enable enterprises to reap the benefits of 5G with minimum risk and capital expenditure.

“Private, carrier-grade 5G network offerings have historically required a great deal of carrier wireless technology, large numbers of components and vendors, complex processes for integration with other networks and significant capital expenditures,” said Iyad Tarazi, CEO, Federated Wireless. “Enterprise customers are well-familiar with cloud marketplaces, and can now directly leverage our extensive partner program and application ecosystem for an end-to-end private wireless service.”

The new service offering was developed with specific attention to the needs of the cloud-native enterprises of today, who have come to depend on seamless integration between their own IT departments and global public clouds.

“Enterprises require secure wireless networks that can be trusted with mission-critical tasks, at-scale, and without interference, but realize that procuring and deploying private 5G networks is extremely complex,” said Chris DePuy, technology analyst, 650 Group. “CBRS is uniquely positioned to provide a bridge to carrier-grade enterprise 5G services, and Federated Wireless and its partners are now prepared to deliver that as a managed service.”

The managed service offering is useful for a wide range of use cases, the company said, including manufacturing environments supporting logistics and operations applications, which can experience performance degradation using legacy networks due to network and device interference.
