Recognized for simplifying Industry 4.0 infrastructure, the HARMONY Private Network as a Service (Naas) and Nextivity Connectivity Core offer a low-risk entry into CBRS private LTE.
SAN DIEGO, CA – October 25, 2023 – Today, Nextivity – the industry leader in intelligent cellular coverage solutions – announced its HARMONY Private Network as a Service (Naas) won the Mobile Breakthrough Award for Industrial IoT Solution of the Year. Lowering the barrier of entry for enterprises to include private networking in their complete wireless strategy, HARMONY NaaS is part of the Nextivity Connectivity Core, which includes sensors, edge computing, and the network. With HARMONY and its OPEX model, companies can realize the promise of Industry 4.0 – through CBRS private LTE and advanced IoT devices – with minimal upfront capital investment.
While private cellular networks offer enhanced reliability, flexibility, mobility, and security in comparison to commercial cellular networks, the high costs of initial deployment have deterred many companies from adding the technology to their wireless strategy. As an easy-to-use, low-risk entry point into CBRS private LTE, HARMONY simplifies the process of implementing a private network. Ideal for enterprises in manufacturing, distribution, warehousing, and healthcare that could use private cellular to deliver improved business outcomes with IoT and workforce technologies, HARMONY enables specific private networking applications at a fraction of the price of other solutions.
“Nextivity is thrilled to see our private networking solution that consists of HARMONY and our CEL-FI QUATRA 4000c recognized at this critical time in the market’s growth cycle. This is the perfect Industry 4.0 starter solution for the middleprise,” said Nextivity CEO Michiel Lotter. “We are able to lower the risk for businesses while still delivering the value and promise of the future – giving enterprises the ability to jump into the world of IoT to find their ‘killer application’ without breaking the bank.”
HARMONY includes all the components necessary for a private network deployment, including the on-premise edge server with evolved packet core (EPC), CBRS small cell, SAS management, and SIM cards. The system pairs perfectly with QUATRA 4000c – the market’s first neutral host Active DAS Hybrid cellular coverage solution – which extends the HARMONY private networking signals to every corner of the building.
Nextivity is actively working with enterprises to demonstrate the value and ease of use of HARMONY via proof-of-concept installations for businesses interested in adding CBRS private LTE to their wireless strategy. Click HARMONY to learn more.
