Founded in 2010, Cloudstreet is a cloud-based, Assured-Connectivity-as-a-Service (ASaaS) platform for telecom operators, combining ‘network slicing’ capabilities at the business and network layers to provide SLA-assured Mobile Bandwidth on-Demand and the world’s first Application-Aware Network™ (AAN™). Incubated at Nokia’s Silicon Valley campus, Cloudstreet’s patented core technology, the Dynamic Profile Controller™ (DPC™) enables 5G network capabilities across the gamut of Internet of Things (IoT), and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) applications, but is nowhere more essential than in the area of Critical Communications.
Working with the US Department of Commerce’s PSCR (Public Safety Communications Research) program based at Boulder Labs, Cloudstreet has achieved a telecommunications technology first for immediate application in world-wide public safety communications broadband systems, including FirstNet, the US federal emergency responder network. Leveraging the power of Cloudstreet’s patented DPC™, FirstNet and Cloudstreet have successfully demonstrated the ability to enable user devices to make machine or manual requests for a dynamic profile changes (on-the-fly) in a standard 4G LTE Network. While balancing and orchestrating device demands within the network to prevent overload, Cloudstreet’s DPC™ permits end user devices to transmit self-aware context changes dynamically to effect real-time profile changes to ensure consistent, predictable, secure and assured connectivity and quality of service.
When it comes to ensuring life-essential connectivity and capacity the data is critical to making the case, Cloudstreet and FirstNet are at the very cutting edge. The reliability figures in networks with technology like the Dynamic Profile Controller™ are close to 99.99% for mission-critical applications at 2 MBps capacity. This alone dramatically reduces the cost of rolling out public safety broadband networks, while allowing specialty equipment (e.g. purpose-built firefighting devices), to be used on the same networks the rest of us use.
Overcoming the challenges of limited bandwidth for critical communications, Cloudstreet ensures the ability to guarantee connection quality and speed, thus delivering on a critical part of the global public safety and security mandate. Along with strengthening the core telecom infrastructure that supports an array of vital services, this network-wide enhancement will serve to help balance available bandwidth for all at a fraction of the price of dedicated network infrastructure.
