Geoverse signs US SI WCI to sell CBRS private-LTE/5G to utilities, hospitals, schools
US private cellular provider Geoverse has partnered with Houston-based enterprise tech provider WCI Technologies to deliver its private LTE and 5G core networking solution to the energy, healthcare, and education sectors. The pair will deliver shared and licensed LTE and 5G infrastructure in the 3.55-3.7 GHz CBRS band in the US. Geoverse said the deal will enable it to increase its customer installations.
WCI Technologies will work as an approved partner and channel to market for Geoverse. The company has made its name as a system integrator in “guest centric” enterprises, originally in the hospitality sector, moving into the healthcare and education markets, as well. The energy sector is also listed in a press note as a candidate client market for the duo. “Industrial” is cited by Geoverse, too, as a suitable user group.
A statement said: “The Geoverse solution is a managed offering that can utilize both CBRS and 5G-ready licensed LTE spectrum for advanced connectivity that helps transform how and where staff and machines can securely operate… WCI can now offer highly-differentiated private cellular as a core element in its telecoms portfolio. Organizations benefit from having a scalable platform that can be tailored to their specific needs.”
Bob Gault, chief commercial officer at Geoverse, said: “WCI has a great reputation and extensive reach in the enterprise space, including the energy, healthcare, and education sectors. More and more organizations are moving toward a hybrid or private approach to telecommunications to enhance the user experience and take better advantage of what 5G can ultimately offer. By cooperating with WCI, we can offer some truly unique solution expertise to enable some of the more forward-thinking private cellular customers and their use cases.”
Robert Grosz, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at WCI, said: “By partnering with Geoverse, we will have the ability to advance relationship and technical project management to our enterprise customers nationwide. Geoverse provides effective system integration and deployment of licensed spectrum that we need to ensure positive customer experiences for these key verticals.”
