Partnership to deliver flawless mobile connectivity17/05/17Science & Technology
Cloudstreet, the network slicing innovator specialising in delivering SLA-assured mobile internet connectivity, and Goodmill Systems, a provider of uninterrupted mobile broadband connectivity, have announced the formation of a partnership.
The partnership aims to extend failsafe connectivity for public safety personnel and vehicles.
Goodmill Systems has solved the issue of ensuring cross-carrier connectivity by allowing users and devices to seamlessly ‘hop’ multiple long-term evolution (LTE) networks to provide uninterrupted service for the range of life- and mission-critical public safety applications.
Cloudstreet’s SLA-assured, dynamic network slicing technology ensures public safety operatives’ dedicated mobile capacity and ultra-low latency within each cell of a network wherever and whenever they need it.
Together, the two companies provide a true end-to-end (E2E) solution for the safety- and security-essential demands of coverage, capacity and latency-assured throughput across multiple, heterogeneous networks.
Petteri Suomalainen, CEO and co-founder of Goodmill Systems, said: “This partnership removes the last obstacle for critical communications from a network connectivity perspective and well in advance of the arrival of 5G.
“By combining Cloudstreet’s next-generation dynamic network slicing platform, for today’s 4G LTE networks, with Goodmill Systems’ ability to deliver cross-carrier connectivity, ensuring public safety operatives as ‘Always Online’, this partnership not only dramatically advances critical communications infrastructure, but directly supports the industry’s mandate to ensure the safety and security of citizens and save lives. We are excited to be working with a fellow innovator like Cloudstreet to make this a reality.”
Mika Skarp, CTO and founder of Cloudstreet, added: “Bringing these essential innovations together effectively closes the loop on a core public safety requirement.
“While much of our industry focuses on expanding network capacity, in an era of ever finite mobile bandwidth, our critical communications infrastructure needs … to ensure reliability and interoperability across public networks.”
