Solution — PK deployed Nokia's industrial-grade private wireless solution operating in the LTE / CBRS (Citizens Band Radio Service) spectrum and Cradlepoint's NetCloud Service, delivered through wireless edge routers mounted in ruggedized communication kits. Benefits — With Private LTE, PK gives its oil and gas company customers the flexible, high-performance, secure, and reliable Wireless LAN connectivity they need to keep employees safe everywhere they go — and to centrally monitor and manage the entire network. Private LTE is fantastic because we can arrive at an oil and gas company's job site, put up temporary towers, and control bandwidth and who's using it — all while harnessing the same technology that the carriers use." Ben Burrus, Chief Technology Officer, PK Solutions
