Quortus, the UK-based provider of private edge, LTE and 5G network solutions, has partnered with Florida-based TLC Solutions, a provider of wireless network solutions for remote, rural, tactical and emergency deployments, to deliver 5G radios for private network deployment.
The former has been working with the US firm to provide its ECX Pack, ECX Access and ECX Core products as an integrated part of TLC Solutions’ wireless network systems. The combined offering is said to deliver “greater flexibility for private network deployments”, particularly with regards to radio range and spectrum optimisation. TLC is currently integrating the Quortus’ packet core and its access management system as part of its 5G New Radio (NR) solution.
“We are extremely proud of the longstanding partnership we have formed with Quortus,” said Lee Sanders, president at TLC Solutions. ”Its innovative products ensure that we continue to meet the very specific needs of our customers. We are excited to continue to see our partnership develop as we enter the next generation of wireless technology and see Quortus help TLC bring to market its private 5G network solutions and products.”
Mark Bole, CEO at Quortus added: “There is tremendous interest in the potential of private 5G networks as enterprises across multiple vertical markets evaluate the new levels of efficiency and productivity they offer. We’re delighted to be extending our valued partnership with TLC to include private 5G networks, as we help organisations either migrate from private LTE networks or build bespoke 5G infrastructure for the first time.”
This latest announcement builds on an 11-year partnership between the two companies, which has seen Quortus provide software-defined core network solutions to TLC Solutions for its 2G, 3G and LTE network systems.
The combined solution is targeted to be commercially available later this year.
