It is no secret that the ban on Huawei equipment in the United States puts some, mostly rural, carriers in a bind. Congress has introduced a bill that would provide up to $700 million to help telecom carriers remove Huawei equipment from their networks. However, according to Jeff Johnston, lead economist for the communications sector at CoBank, the actual costs are likely to top $1 billion.
Future Technologies system integration capabilities and Tecore Network’s technology have joined to provide a path to American-made and delivered 5G networks in the future, replacing legacy (2G/3G/4G) CORE and RAN systems from equipment vendors that have been restricted in the United States market.
“We believe that teaming with Tecore to address this market with an end-to-end 4G/5G American-made and delivered solution is an important option that has not existed in the market until now,” said Peter Cappiello, CEO of Future Technologies.
Through this partnership, Tecore and Future Technologies will be providing flexible deployment options, to include standard cost-effective equipment. The supply chain provides a fully pre-integrated solution shipped installation-ready, including core in the cloud, on-premise or hybrid models with the option for partial or full end-to-end turnkey deployments.
“Our mission is to enable the regional carrier and WISP market with industry leading technology and delivery options to help address the market requirement for an American-made and delivered 4G and 5G solution set,” said Jay Salkini, president and CEO of Tecore Network.
