Celona and NTT to deliver Private 5G Solutions to Enterprise

Celona and NTT are to power NTT’s Private 5G (P5G) service, in what both companies escribe as the first and only private 5G platform that is purpose-built for enterprise environments.

Combining Celona’s integrated solution with NTT’s deep expertise in Digital Transformation and enterprise networks, NTT P5G managed service supports the business transformation requirements of Chief Information Officers and Chief Digital Officers.

“Enterprises are looking to leverage Celona’s 5G LAN solution-as-a-service globally at scale,” said Rajeev Shah, co-founder and CEO at Celona.

“By partnering with NTT to deliver the P5G platform, we can offer clients secure mobile connectivity with wire-like predictability and world-class performance.

Together, we’re setting an industry benchmark for unlocking new applications for the future of digital business initiatives.”

The NTT and Celona partnership delivers on key architectural benefits:

  • A standardized and centrally managed global implementation across all facilities taking advantage of the multitude of shared and licensed private spectrum options,
  • Network and policy automation that eliminates deployment complexity at scale,
  • Secure device and application network segmentation tied to enterprise policies, and,
  • A software-defined operational model that can keep track of key performance indicators for an open ecosystem of market-leading device and app providers.

The partnership between Celona and NTT to deliver P5G was orchestrated by one of Celona’s investors NTTVC, an independent venture capital firm formed in partnership with NTT.

“At NTTVC, our strategy is to help startups harness the Power of Partnership to take their business to new heights,” said Vab Goel, Founding Partner of NTTVC.

“When we invested in Celona, we knew there was a huge opportunity for us to open doors within NTT for the co-creation of innovative new service offerings. P5G is a shining example of what is possible when we help our portfolio companies tap into NTT’s impressive ecosystem.”

NTT P5G Platform

The NTT P5G platform provides a suite of services built to help Chief Information Officers and Chief Digital Officers drive business outcomes and unlock innovative business models that drive the future of enterprise across industries. NTT P5G, the first globally available private LTE/5G Network-as-a-Service, leverages design thinking principles to integrate security, control, and privacy by design, providing performance and cost benefits with a clear ROI.

The platform is pre-integrated with leading software and application partners, allowing enterprises to flexibly secure, scale, and segment their network.

Celona 5G LAN and the Edgeless Enterprise

Celona’s new approach to private cellular wireless with its 5G LAN solution is designed to deliver unprecedented operational agility and efficiency via tight integration with existing enterprise network designs and compute platforms.

Named the Edgeless Enterprise architecture, it relies on a cloud-native network operating system and provides an all-in-one network service overlay that offers policy-based routing, QoS, and security segmentation functions for critical business applications.

Celona’s solution also builds upon 5G network slicing principles with the unique Celona MicroSlicing™ technology to guarantee key service levels and a consistent application delivery experience.

“We are pleased to partner with Celona in tackling some of toughest digital transformation challenges across the global enterprise,” said Shahid Ahmed, Group EVP of New Ventures and Innovation at NTT Ltd.

“Our strategic customers and partners have been demanding a comprehensive and scalable approach to private 5G, and we are excited to lead the industry in being able to serve enterprises across the globe.”
