T-Mobile and Oceus have announced their strategic alliance to deliver advanced 5G network solutions to the US government. 

Together, T-Mobile and Oceus will work to add new capabilities within the Department of Defense (DoD) for AR/VR, maintenance and logistics, training, and active operations.

Oceus’ extensive experience in deploying cellular broadband in military environments and T-Mobile’s 5G Advanced Network Solutions suite will also pave the way for secure 5G private networks, multi-access edge computing, and SecDevOps.

“This is a game-changer for DoD, and as an example, late last year Oceus and T-Mobile teamed up to provide a response to an urgent request for high-capacity emergency communications in support of Operation Allies Welcome (OAW),” said Callie Field, president of T-Mobile Business Group. 

“This provided over 6,400 DoD and interagency customers and 30,000 Afghan guests reliable use of retrofitted systems with T-Mobile’s Ultra Capacity 5G network, generating a daily average of more than 20,000 voice calls with an estimated data usage of 500 megabits per second (Mbps), and over three terabytes (TB) of average aggregate usage across the four locations,” added Field.

Jeff Harman, president and CEO of Oceus stated, “T-Mobile has live 5G capacity that is unmatched, and this capacity allows our clients to securely access maximum 5G coverage. We’re excited to partner further to deliver new solutions that are needed today by the U.S. government.”
