Geoverse Offers Licensed Network, CBRS Offering for Critical Communications
Monday, June 22, 2020 | Comments

Geoverse announced support for licensed wireless spectrum on its existing GeoCore network service platform. This solution combines low-band licensed spectrum with Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) to form a high-performance and reliable private LTE/5G network that enables the adoption of Industry 4.0 for mining, oil and gas exploration, utilities and other industries.

The offering merges CBRS with the performance of licensed 600 and 700 MHz spectrum to guarantee a reliable network where it is needed, supporting voice calling, high-speed broadband and critical low-latency internet of things (IoT).

Strata Worldwide, a Geoverse solution partner specializing in delivering critical wireless communications to mining operations, is taking advantage of the offering.

“In such extreme environments, the performance and reach of the low-band spectrum can make it a preferred option for select applications,” said Tom Michaud, CTO of Strata Worldwide. “And it complements CBRS quite well so collectively they can serve a variety of use cases found across our remote locations, providing a high-performance service connecting users, devices and even delivering highly reliable service for our automated equipment.”

Geoverse offers an option to use its GeoCore service platform to deploy the licensed 600 and 700 MHz spectrum from its solutions across 14 western states. Because the network uses licensed spectrum, it belongs exclusively to the enterprise it serves.

Industries such as mining, oil and gas exploration, and energy have turned to a variety of wireless solutions to try to keep their daily operations flowing smoothly. However, this patchwork of networks can be costly and difficult to manage while still falling short of the various connectivity requirements. In the era of automation and the digital workplace, inadequate coverage and inconsistent performance can disrupt operations to reduce productivity and impact the bottom line.

“Private LTE networks meet the design, operational and performance requirements that heavy industry needs while giving them authority over coverage, capacity and function,” said Rod Nelson, CEO and co-founder of Geoverse. “By combining the coverage and exclusive use of licensed spectrum with the capacity depth provided by CBRS, we create one private LTE/5G networking solution to satisfy many needs.”
