LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Private wireless pioneer Betacom today announced it has been selected by VMware as one of three inaugural wireless service provider partners to deploy and manage VMware Private Mobile Networks. Aimed at accelerating digital transformation at the edge, VMware, which today announced its latest edge initiatives at VMware Explore 2023 Las Vegas, tapped Betacom to help enterprises reduce the complexity associated with private mobile networks.
“Betacom is an ideal provider partner for VMware’s edge focused innovations and initiatives,” said Saadat Malik, Vice President, VMware Edge Computing. “With their dedication to security, performance, and simplicity, together we can help our customers advance their business and operational goals to not only embrace the Industrial Internet of Things but to do it efficiently and effectively and without additional resources.”
Betacom will seamlessly integrate VMware’s Private Mobile Network offering built on Edge Compute Stack into its existing private network managed service offering 5G as a Service (5GaaS), enabling rapid deployment and effortless management and orchestration of private wireless networks for enterprise clients. Betacom 5GaaS, the industry’s first fully-managed, end-to-end private wireless service, safeguards data by isolating traffic and keeping company data behind the enterprise firewall, by implementing Zero Trust design principles and Betacom AirGap Protection that features a combination of traffic segregation, 3GPP tunneling, encryption and granular access controls. Betacom delivers 24x7, 365 days a year network management from its cloud-based Security and Service Operations Center (SSOC).
The new VMware Edge Compute Stack can support multiple use cases at the edge including deployments in the manufacturing, retail, campus and healthcare sectors for a wide variety of applications. For manufacturing customers, the solution supports software-defined manufacturing, predictive maintenance, inventory management, safety and security. For healthcare customers, it provides support for IoT wearables, smart utilities and surgical robotics.
“We are excited to partner with VMware in support of its latest technology offering, which enables all the edge functions necessary to facilitate Industry 4.0,” said Johan Bjorklund, CEO of Betacom. “Clients are looking for high-performance, low-latency solutions that are ideal for optimizing automation, data collection and the Internet of Things, and that is exactly what VMware Private Mobile Networks is designed to deliver through our partnership.”
Betacom offers the first fully-managed private 5G network service, building on its long history as a wireless infrastructure provider to AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon. Founded in 1991 and headquartered in Bellevue, Washington, the company has regional offices throughout the country. Having completed more than 800 large-scale design and deployment projects, Betacom inspires confidence among their customers who have worked closely with them to meet their pressing high-performance connectivity needs. Its secure private 5G wireless service is the first managed service of its kind in the United States. For more information, visit http://www.betacom.com. Follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter.
