Syniverse and Affirmed Networks announced they have launched a secure, cloud-based virtual network solution to enable enterprises to quickly deploy new Internet of Things (IoT) services.

The Affirmed virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) provides enterprises with the connection to the outside world via the Syniverse Secure Global Access network.

The Syniverse and Affirmed solution supports long-term evolution (LTE) for businesses' secure network connections, 'global SIM resources' for internet access, and IoT for connected devices and smart cities. The solution allows enterprises to create their own network, similar to a mobile operator, to improve agility while reducing network complexities and costs.

Affirmed's vEPC enables enterprises to have increased freedom to orchestrate how their own network operates. Additionally, Syniverse provides protection on these networks with its Syniverse Secure Global Access network. This private, secure network functions separate from the public internet to prevent cyberattacks. Combining these technologies into one solution benefits mobile operators and enterprises seeking more flexible and secure connections.

The Syniverse and Affirmed partnership also works to support the Syniverse Innovation Lab's technology, including Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) to provide private LTE.

The types of projects we'll be working with Affirmed on include developing an ecosystem that will power millions of connected cars in Asia that all need wireless connectivity and will work anywhere in the world with zero tolerance for lag time in communicating with the network and while traveling on the road.

Ashwin Moranganti, VP of Product Management and Marketing, Affirmed Networks
The launch of cloud-based private LTE and security services for the enterprise represents a significant milestone for the Affirmed and Syniverse partnership.
