CalChip Connect, Federated Wireless Partner to Drive Private 5G


CalChip Connect, the IoT distributor, and Federated Wireless, the enabler in private wireless and shared spectrum solutions, announced that CalChip Connect has selected Federated Wireless as their preferred private wireless service delivery partner.

The strategic partnership will focus on delivering a simplified solution set and rapid fulfilment model for enterprises to easily deploy smart warehouse technologies enabled with private wireless.

As the first major achievement of the collaboration, Federated Wireless has completed the deployment of a private wireless network and innovation center to power CalChip Connect’s global IoT distribution center in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. This deployment will serve as a reference architecture and ecosystem for customers to easily design and deploy smart warehouse solutions with private wireless customized to their exact use case requirements. Customers will also benefit from the Federated Wireless Spectrum Access System (SAS) which monitors and manages CBRS spectrum throughout the United States to enable clean, high speed, low latency spectrum perfect for industrial use cases.

“The ability to offer our customers secure, high-speed wireless connectivity right out of the box is a huge part of making IoT adoption easy for our customers,” said TJ Rancour, President and Co-Founder of CalChip Connect. “Federated Wireless is a great partner because not only is private 5G critical to delivering IoT connectivity, but they also share our obsession with providing a world-class customer experience and support model.”

Together, Federated Wireless and CalChip Connect are bringing to market pre-integrated solutions to accelerate how industries deploy IoT smart warehouse solutions enabled with private wireless connectivity. The streamlined and easy-to-implement solutions will power IoT transformation for manufacturing, education and logistics customers, among others.
