Betacom, a longtime design and deployment partner for such telecom carriers as AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon, has won a Mobile Breakthrough Award for its private wireless product called 5G-as-a-Service.
Launched on May 25, Betacom’s 5G-as-a-Service is the industry’s first fully managed private wireless service, enabling U.S. enterprises to have access to cost-effective, high-performance 5G networks designed, deployed and managed by one of the most trusted names in wireless networking, according to Betacom. Betacom enterprise customers retain ownership of the network and local control of their data, with network management delivered via the Betacom Security and Service Operations Center, a modern AI-driven NOC hosted on Microsoft Azure.
5G-as-a-Service is designed to enable enterprises of all sizes to eliminate barriers created from the design, deployment and management of complex 4G/5G private networks.
Part of Tech Breakthrough, a market intelligence and recognition platform for global technology innovation and leadership, the Mobile Breakthrough awards program is devoted to honoring excellence in mobile and wireless technology companies, products and people.
The mission of the annual Mobile Breakthrough Awards is to recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of mobile and wireless technology categories, including 5G, cloud computing, mobile management, wireless and broadband, mobile analytics, internet-of-things (IoT) and smart city. The program attracts thousands of award nominations throughout the world. Winning products and companies were selected based on a variety of criteria, including most innovative and technologically advanced products and services, with the ultimate goal of recognizing the breakthrough solutions for each mobile technology.
Johan Bjorklund, CEO of Betacom, said that the recognition underscores Betacom’s ability to help organizations advance their Industrial IoT strategies, manage their limited resources and embrace new business models in the process.
Private 4G/5G networks have potential to revolutionize the way that many industries, including transportation, manufacturing and logistics, conduct their business and accelerate progress as they implement their Industry 4.0 strategies.
