VoltServer and KelTech IoT have signed a strategic partnership agreement to address the challenges of last-mile communications networks.
“By harnessing KelTech IoT’s dual distributed network deployment methodology that incorporates VoltServer Digital Electricity, the economics of deploying macro, small and micro cells has been transformed,” a statement from VoltServer reads. “The dual distributed network (DDN) tackles this challenge through a symbiotic convergence of energy and data in a single integrated solution, yielding a significant saving in both capital expense (capex) and operating expense (opex).”
The partnership agreement is a formal recognition of the close collaboration between the two companies to date and the future design opportunities to further enhance the implementation of last-mile communication networks.
“The massive demand-led growth of telecoms networks infrastructure is posing significant challenges for traditional deployment models.” said Mark Kellett, CEO of KelTech IoT. “Keltech IoT’s DDN solution, using VoltServer’s Digital Electricity, is a transformative technology, significantly reducing the total cost of ownership of last-mile communications networks and facilitating greater service enablement. We are delighted to announce this partnership agreement with VoltServer, as we design innovative solutions to enable new business models and further optimize deployments of next-generation communications network infrastructure.”
Expressing VoltServer’s view, Luke Getto, director of product management, said that as dense 4G communication networks evolve to ultra-dense 5G networks, designers will need new ways to navigate the challenges of outdoor network deployments.
“Outdoor small cells address the ever-increasing need for greater bandwidth, but they require increased power consumption at the network’s edge,” Getto said. “The DDN leverages Digital Electricity to eliminates the need to depend on the power company.”
Described by VoltServer as an industry-recognized solution, the DDN was shortlisted in the Small Cell Forum awards in two categories: Commercial Small Cell (Network) Products & Technology and Outstanding Innovation in Small Cell Business Case.
VoltServer and KelTech IoT will co-host a webinar on May 27, 2021, at 11 a.m. Eastern time, to present the technology and benefits of the DDN solution, including a case study on a deployed commercial implementation. To register for this webinar, register here.
