ClearSky Private LTE and 5G Networks is a turnkey, managed service that brings together all the technology, deployment and support components necessary to create and operate your own private LTE or 5G network. Using CBRS spectrum, the power and security of state-of-the-art cellular networks can now be dedicated to your specific wireless communications needs, both indoors and outdoors.
The wireless industry is beginning a transformation as important and wide-reaching as the introduction of Wi-Fi was two decades ago. For the first time individual organizations can create their own private LTE and 5G networks, taking advantage of the tremendous speed and security capabilities that the big cellular network operators have enjoyed all these years. The availability of readily available radio spectrum like CBRS and reasonably priced components such as radios and end user devices make it all possible. However, planning, deploying and operating private LTE and 5G networks is far more complex than Wi-Fi because of all the complex core network components and the requirement for SIM cards in the end user devices. So while the advantages of private LTE and 5G are many, so are the number of deployment and operational challenges.
With ClearSky Private LTE and 5G Networks, we have pioneered a comprehensive approach to designing, implementing and operating both indoor and outdoor cellular-grade networks. ClearSky brings your project superior performance and security for mission critical applications using the highly capable yet no-cost CBRS radio spectrum. We use proven components from the world’s leading manufacturers to create a network perfectly suited for your particular needs. Private LTE is the ideal backbone for your IoT, automation and private voice network plans, all delivered and managed with ClearSky’s comprehensive, nationwide service.
