“The powerful combination of Federated Wireless and Carahsoft is accelerating Government’s access to 5G tools and solutions,” said Paul Battaglia, VP of Public Sector at Federated Wireless. “This partnership means the Public Sector can access and leverage 5G solutions faster. Together, we’ll help agencies experience the benefits of private wireless, enabling efficiencies, competitiveness, security, and innovation.”

Simplified access to 5G-enabled private wireless networks contributes to ongoing IT modernization efforts across the Public Sector. As legacy systems are increasingly replaced with agile, microservice-focused models, the modernization journey is moving away from obtaining hardware to procuring connectivity robust enough to power data-intensive applications and proliferating connected devices.
