In our fast-paced world, seamless cellular connectivity within enterprisepremises isn't just a convenience; it's a necessity. We've all experienced thefrustration of poor cellular reception indoors. It impacts not only employeesbut also the satisfaction of visitors and customers. Today, I'm excited tointroduce you to a solution that's set to change the game and elevate thecellular experience for all.

The Birth of a Game-Changer

In a world where seamless indoor cellular connectivity is no longer a luxury but a necessity, we saw the need for a solution that could bridge the gaps in coverage within enterprise premises. Traditional cellular networks often struggle to penetrate buildings effectively, leading to poor signal strength and connectivity issues. That's where Celona's Neutral Host Solution comes into play.

But what exactly is a neutral host network? In essence, it's a network architectural model that leverages small cells and shared spectrum options like Citizen's Band Radio Services (CBRS) to provide mobile network operator (MNO)coverage and capacity within private LTE/5G RANs. These networks extend the reach of public cellular services into locations with weak signal strength, such as indoors, without the need for each MNO to deploy and manage separate infrastructure.

 Celona’s Neutral Host Solution operates seamlessly over CBRS sharedprivate wireless spectrum, and we're proud to share that it's officially certified within T-Mobile's "Bring Your Own Coverage 2.0"(BYOC 2.0) program. This certification ensures that T-Mobile subscribers can enjoy high-quality voice and data services, emergency e911 calling, and full regulatory compliance on Celona 5G LAN. It's a significant milestone that highlights our commitment to delivering a reliable and certified solution that enhances the cellular experience.

A Solution Tailored for All

What sets our Neutral Host Solution apart is its versatility. It's not a one-size-fits-all solution; it's designed to cater to a range of needs of various industries, including healthcare, retail, offices, hotels, manufacturing, and education. These organizations can now provide reliable indoor public cellular connectivity to T-Mobile subscribers while using the same private wireless infrastructure for vital business applications.

Let me break down why I believe our approach to address in-building public cellular coverage is a game-changer:

Accelerating Deployment, Reducing Costs

One of the key advantages of Celona's Neutral Host Solution is its efficiency. Unlike traditional Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS), which can take years to deploy, our solution can be up and running in a matter of weeks. It puts control and manageability back into the hands of enterprises without the hassle and cost of additional on-site equipment with dedicated cabling, reducing the TCO by 40-60%.

Leveraging Existing Infrastructure

We've thought about every aspect of deployment. By maximizing existing enterprise LAN and WAN infrastructure, Celona's Neutral Host Solution modernizes the way we provide high-quality public cellular coverage. The result? Significant cost savings and enhanced network coverage.

Cutting-Edge MOXN Technology

At the heart of this solution lies our Multi-Operator Exchange (MOXN)technology. It's a cloud-hosted, multi-site, multi-tenant software exchange. In simple terms, it simplifies operations and ensures a seamless and secure user experience.

Flexibility in Deployment

We understand that every business is unique. That's why we offer flexible deployment and pricing options. The solution includes all the necessary hardware and software components for deploying an end-to-end private wireless and/or neutral host network. It's available right now for U.S.-based customers, with pricing options that cater to various requirements. Whether you want to enable Neutral Host support on your existing Celona private wireless networks or deploy it as a stand-alone solution, the choice is yours. 

What's Next for Celona's Neutral Host Solution?

Our journey doesn't stop here. We're actively working with other U.S.-based mobile network operators (MNOs) to integrate our small cell neutral host system with their respective public cellular service offerings. This means that our commitment to improving in-building cellular coverage extends beyond T-Mobile, making it accessible to a broader audience.
