"Private" Mobile Networks are Coming

Quortus, a supplier of a virtual mobile core network platform, has joined the CBRS Alliance, the organization dedicated to developing, marketing and promoting 4G-based solutions using the shared spectrum of the US 3.5-GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band.

Quortus supplies mobile network software that supports “private cellular system” operators using shared spectrum that interwork with existing mobile networks, including small cell and heterogeneous networks.
Quortus has in the past developed and commercialized cellular core software for 2G, 3G and 4G (Long Term Evolution, known as LTE), emphasizing in intelligence at the network edge.

The work of the CBRS Alliance reflects a broader global trend towards the use of LTE and other cellular technologies in shared and unlicensed spectrum.
Private cellular is one of the key service models enabled by the use of licensed, license-exempt or deregulated spectrum, enabling a variety of innovative services for organizations and individual users. Note the change: “private,” in addition to  “public” mobile networks.
