Geoverse, a provider of private LTE and 5G solutions, today announced that its network as a service platform is being used by JCI US Inc., a subsidiary of Japan Communications Inc., to support its private LTE network solutions across the US. The new service offered by JCI US in conjunction with Geoverse utilizes both CBRS (Citizens Broadband Radio Service) and public cellular networks. It will be delivered via JCI US’ USIM programmable SIM platform.
For this service, Geoverse has deployed a private network using dedicated Edge Enhanced Packet Core networks at JCI US data centers. JCI US will use its USIM programmable SIM platform to provide connectivity for all its customers including CBRS customers such as large scale commercial and retail real estate owners and management companies, which will now be able to seamlessly connect to both their CBRS private LTE networks and to public mobile networks using a single SIM card. “The Geoverse mission is to provide carrier grade connectivity, through turnkey solutions for organizations such as JCI US that are ready to embrace secure connectivity for its customers,” says Rod Nelson, CEO and co-founder of Geoverse.
Regarding the execution of the agreement with Geoverse, JCI US President and COO Greg Deickman said, “JCI US partnering with Geoverse is an instrumental step not only in the development of our broad portfolio of CBRS solutions, but in executing the JCI Group’s strategy of providing a truly global SIM platform connecting to both private and public LTE networks worldwide. We will continue to enhance our USIM platform through partnership with carriers globally to provide secure, reliable and affordable communications everywhere.”
