COMSovereign Holding Corp. (OTCQB: COMS) (“COMSovereign” or the “Company”), a U.S.-based pure-play developer of 5G connectivity and data transmission devices, announced today that its Virtual NetCom LLC (“VNC”) unit fully demonstrated its edge-centric 5G network core on a credit-card sized platform.
VNC is a developer of fixed and mobile broadband communications solutions for public and private wireless networks operated by commercial, enterprise, government and defense customers. Virtualized edge-centric 5G core technology (5GC) combines the benefits of Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) into a very compact platform slightly larger than a credit card. This dramatically reduces the cost and complexity of deploying a highly optimized 5G wireless network. The 5GC’s small form factor allows it be embedded into fixed or portable/mobile solutions, providing superior performance for mission critical applications such as industrial IoT, autonomous everything (vehicles, drones, etc.), and secure private networks for enterprise, healthcare, public safety, government and defense applications. Furthermore, unlike typical 5G remote cores that are rack-based, power intensive, heavy, and require indoor installation, the 5GC technology places this key functionality at the very edge of the network closest to the user, which greatly increases network reliability and availability while reducing latency, backhaul requirements and cost.
“VNC’s proprietary AI-enabled, virtualized edge-centric 5G core technology significantly advances our ability to provide a highly-efficient core to support 5G wireless services in nearly any conceivable format,” said Mohan Tammisetti, senior vice president, Engineering & Technology, at Virtual NetCom. “With this 5GC technology, we have revolutionized modern network design, uniquely enhancing many of the key benefits of 5G, such as low latency, high bandwidth and network slicing, by pushing core processing and network intelligence to the edge, all at a fraction of the cost of existing hardware solutions.”
Chief Technology Officer of COMSovereign Holding Corp., Dr. Dustin McIntire, stated, “COMSovereign is dedicated to the development of key enabling technologies required to power the next generation of mobile networks through innovations in hardware design, software and spectral efficiency. The introduction of 5GC is the first in a series of groundbreaking ‘made in the USA’ technologies we are bringing to market over the next 18 months that we believe will redefine the future of wireless networks around the world.”
Low-Rate Initial Production (“LRIP”) should yield limited volumes of 5GC product to market in mid-September. General availability and volume production for the VNC 5GC technology is expected to commence in the 4th quarter of this year at a price point expected to be a fraction of the cost of a typical 5G network core.
