LAS VEGAS, Sept. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Celona, ​​the industry innovator of 5G LAN solutions, today announced that its 5G LAN products and technology will serve as the foundation for multi-phase private 5G (P5G ) planned by NTT’s Las Vegas city expansion project.

One of the first citywide private wireless deployments in the world, the multi-phase plan targets the use of new Citizen Broadband Radio (CBRS) spectrum to extend the private network throughout the city and potentially in nearby cities in the future, enabling enhanced services in other areas such as law enforcement, telehealth and Internet of Things infrastructure.

The NTT P5G Network-as-a-Service platform will enable the City of Las Vegas to harness the power of private cellular technology to connect educational institutions, businesses and community assets in ways that never was not possible before. The Celona-powered NTT P5G platform will help the City of Las Vegas better support local businesses, give visitors and residents access to more services, and open up new potential revenue streams.

Celona hotspots operate in a shared cellular spectrum that will allow the city to provide coverage with a fraction of the number of Wi-Fi hotspots, which also reduces labor and infrastructure costs. associated network infrastructure.

Combined with the comprehensive Celona Edge software, NTT’s P5G service will serve as an open platform available to local businesses, government, healthcare and educational institutions. The network will help bridge the digital divide, supporting a wide range of use cases such as expanding wireless broadband access, video surveillance for public safety, and private cellular network access for medical institutions and municipal services.

“Our collaboration with Celona on this project cannot be overstated,” said Shahid Ahmed, Group Executive Vice President New Ventures and Innovation at NTT Ltd. “And we believe NTT’s partnership with the City of Las Vegas reflects a new model of wireless connectivity that will drive innovation while creating a scalable framework for municipalities to better deliver reliable wireless connectivity, enhanced security, and better access to essential public services,” concluded Shahid.

With its open and intelligent network, NTT can customize network services to meet different requirements of new applications, whether complete, edge or intelligent solutions. NTT’s LTE/5G Network as a Service integrates security, control and privacy by design and enables enterprises and other customers to flexibly secure, scale and segment their networks.

Through the use of Celona’s patented MicroSlicing™ technology, NTT is able to deliver the highest levels of service assurance by automatically enforcing granular Quality of Service (QoS) requirements, such as loss packets, throughput, or latency, for each application or group of RAN devices across the entire network.

“The city of Las Vegas has aggressively embraced advances in wireless technology and is quickly becoming seen as a technology epicenter for business,” said Rajeev Shah, co-founder and CEO of Celona. “We are delighted that Celona products and technology are being used by NTT to support this remarkable private wireless project.”
