Geoverse and Communications Technology Services (CTS) are teaming to provide portable private LTE/5G networks to better serve the temporary enterprise demand. As a result, businesses that can benefit from short-term facilities, including construction companies, now have access to temporary, high-performance connectivity across building sites, supporting thousands of workers, visitors, and devices without sacrificing performance and functionality. In the past, locations like these have often relied on Wi-Fi connectivity. Wi-Fi is well suited for applications like web surfing or sending an email. However, it has some known limitations when it comes to security, connectivity performance, and application support, all of which are concerns when it comes to these types of operating environments. Although they are temporary, the private networks are as secure and reliable as their permanent variations. Temporary locations, such as pop-up hospitals combating COVID-19, also benefit from having security to ensure HIPAA compliance, as well as the seamlessness and reliability ensured by these private LTE solutions. Through this partnership, Geoverse and CTS will provide turnkey, portable private LTE/5G networks for temporary situations where robust connectivity is essential.

"As we step further into this age of automation and connectivity, more and more industries want to use paperless communication, computer vision, robotics, and artificial intelligence to handle high-risk tasks," said Geoverse CEO, Rod Nelson. "Construction is no different. However, construction sites are highly fluid and temporary environments. Having high-performance connectivity across the site greatly helps with many underlying processes to get a project done safely, securely, and on schedule."
