Two-Hops Virtual Evolved Packet Core
Two-Hops Wireless vEPC and v5GC proposition and Private LTE/5G Networks

The deployment of private LTE and 5G networks has only recently been possible for enterprises in the US due to new radio spectrum regulations adopted by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). These regulations allow enterprises to use valuable radio spectrum to build private wireless networks, which used to be the exclusive domain of wireless carriers up to a few years ago. Two-Hops Wireless is well positioned in the market to help enterprises such as Utilities and WISPs deploy private LTE and 5G broadband communications networks to provide advanced communications services within their organizations or to their customer base.

Utilities and service providers have a fragmented landscape of communications networks, some of which are proprietary technologies, driving up costs and complexity. Private LTE networks enable the integration of diverse services (internet, sensors, machines, vehicles, and more) across various applications and usage scenarios. They treat individual services regarding their required reliability, performance, service quality, and security. This can be achieved under a single, scalable, wireless network solution that leverages evolving global standards and resulting ecosystem benefits.

 

The engineering and operations of a Core can be daunting. Two-Hops Wireless is implementing a cloud-based LTE and 5GC Core system to simplify and speed up broadband network deployment. Enterprises can focus on their core services while implementing their broadband radio network with minimal disruption. This will ensure a cost-effective migration of services to a secure broadband network. Enterprises can also be assured of an easy path to technological updates in the future when deploying a standards-based solution.

Key Features and Capabilities: At its core, the THW virtualized infrastructure enables dynamic scalability, allowing seamless expansion to accommodate growing workloads and evolving demands.

The flexibility of resource allocation within the THW EPC optimizes operational efficiency, ensuring that network resources are utilized judiciously. Moreover, the THW EPC introduces advanced network management capabilities, enhancing telecommunications systems’ overall performance, reliability, and responsiveness. Its ability to support diverse services, from traditional voice communication to data-intensive applications, underscores its versatility. The THW EPC emerges as a transformative element, laying the groundwork for agile, scalable, and future-ready telecommunications networks.

For Internet Service Providers
Today, many ISPs depend on proprietary wireless technologies to provide internet services to their customers. As customers become more sophisticated and more service applications are being bundled with services, it will be necessary for the operator to differentiate in terms of quality between services to ensure a satisfactory service environment. In addition, higher speeds, lower latencies, and cyber security will be critical to win an edge in the market. Two-Hops Wireless can help plan, engineer, deploy, and operate a private LTE or 5G network that can achieve all of the above and allow the service provider to continuously innovate with new services without worrying about how services will be delivered.
For Electric and Gas Utilities
Today, grid operators need more real-time visibility into the operational status of transmission and distribution systems. And while they have been able to maintain reliability in the past, climate change, automation, and increased cybersecurity requirements are presenting new challenges. Not only do grid operators have to battle the increasing frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, but the need for increased automation and cybersecurity is fundamentally changing how the grid operates. To adapt to these changes, advanced cyber-physical networks must be built to allow millisecond fault detection, real-time threat detection and mitigation, and demand response systems. The devices for these systems exist; however, the most significant barrier is the communications network for connectivity. Two-Hops can help Utilities develop a practical framework for building a shared broadband network that will meet all of the technical requirements for an advanced cyber-physical network while also adhering to the financial constraints of electric utilities.
Cloud Migration Benefits
Cloud migration involves transferring an organization’s data, applications, and processes to cloud-based infrastructure. It offers many benefits that contribute to sustainable business growth. Enhanced Scalability and Flexibility: Cloud services provide unparalleled scalability, allowing businesses to effortlessly scale resources up or down based on demand. This flexibility enables organizations to adapt swiftly to market changes, ensuring optimal resource utilization and cost-effectiveness. Improve Operational Efficiency: Cloud computing streamlines operations by centralizing data storage and management. With data accessible from anywhere, employees can collaborate seamlessly, fostering innovation and enhancing overall productivity. Cloud-based applications improve operational efficiency by automating routine tasks and reducing manual workloads. Robust Security Measures: Contrary to common misconceptions, cloud providers invest heavily in advanced security measures. With dedicated security teams, encryption protocols, and compliance certifications, cloud services often provide a more secure environment than on-premises solutions. Regular updates and patches further bolster security, mitigating the risk of cyber threats. .
