CUPERTINO, Calif. and ANDOVER, Mass.Feb. 20, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Ecrio, the leading supplier of Mobile Communications and Messaging for Private Cellular Networks, announced today that Casa Systems has successfully achieved interoperability and validation of its industry leading cloud-native 5G Core with Ecrio’s iota-e Communication IMS, VoLTE, VoNR and MCPTT server software for Mission Critical Connectivity and Communication of Private 5G Network deployments.

iota-e is powered by Ecrio’s FlexEDGE™ technology to deliver 3GPP and GSMA compliant IMS based communication software in a small footprint ideally suited for Private Networks. It features pick-and-build functionality covering person-to-person native voice or video calling, Mission Critical Push to Talk for frontline workers, and human-to-machine communication for command and control of Drones, Robots and Cameras. With its modular and scalable architecture, iota-e can be deployed with Native Dialing or as an Over-the-Top IMS/VoLTE/VoNR/MCPTT solution with a companion App for ruggedized Phones and Tablets.

Casa’s Cloud-native 5G Core architecture featuring control and user plane separation provides unrivaled 5G network performance with greater flexibility, scalability, efficiency and speed in delivering network services. This suite of open, cloud-native network solutions unlocks new ways for demanding private network verticals to build networks for maximizing revenue-generating capabilities.

While RAN and core provide connectivity, adding the communication layer (Native dialing, MC-PTT, Video calling) is becoming a must have for many verticals. Casa and Ecrio’s combined solutions will significantly accelerate the deployment of Private 5G networks, catering to a wide variety of mission critical use cases across Defense, First Responders, Manufacturing, Oil & Gas, Mining, Warehouses, Retail, Healthcare, Education, and other verticals.
