Empowering Mission Critical Communication: Ecrio and Intel Join Forces for Private 5G Solutions



In a landscape where seamless and secure communication is paramount, Ecrio, a leader in Mission Critical Communications and Messaging for Private Cellular Networks, has embarked on a groundbreaking collaboration with Intel Corporation, a frontrunner in silicon and software technology for network infrastructure. Together, they're set to revolutionize Mission Critical Connectivity and Communication for Private 5G Networks, targeting industrial verticals and federal agencies, including the Department of Defense.

Ecrio’s flagship product, iota-e, powered by the innovative FlexEDGE™ technology is at the heart of this collaboration. This communication software platform delivers standards-compliant solutions in a compact footprint, tailor-made for Private Cellular Networks. The iota-e offers a comprehensive suite of Voice/Video calling and Mission Critical Push to Talk (MCPTT) features, supporting person-to person and person-to-machine communication for controlling cameras, drones, and robots. Its modular and scalable architecture ensures seamless deployment, supporting both native dialing and over-the-top Voice/Video calling modes with a companion application for ruggedized phones and tablets.

Ecrio’s strategic alliance with Intel capitalizes on the latter’s cutting-edge technologies, including Xeon processors, FPGAs, FlexRAN™ Software, and AI accelerators, to create a compact edge compute platform. Through rigorous testing and deployment in Intel’s Private 5G labs, both companies are poised to showcase a plethora of mission-critical communication use cases, leveraging cameras, drones, and robots enabled by Edge AI. This collaboration significantly reduces the time to market for compact, edge-based 5G networks.

Michel Gannage, Founder and CEO of Ecrio, expressed his excitement about the collaboration, highlighting the potential of Intel’s compact edge compute platform to enhance mission-critical communications. Caroline Chan, VP in Intel’s Network and Edge Group, echoed this sentiment, emphasizing the pivotal role of Ecrio’s critical communication platform in driving the success of private mobile networks across various verticals.

As the digital landscape continues to evolve, the alliance between Ecrio and Intel stands as a testament to the transformative power of collaboration. By melding expertise and innovation, they're not just shaping the future of communication but also empowering industries with resilient and agile solutions.
