5G Network Equipment for
mmWave Spectrum

Enabling Gigabit
5G Everywhere

Generating New Revenue Streams
for Service Providers

Verana Networks is building an innovative 5G Radio Access Network (RAN) solution for service providers that have licensed millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum.

We are focused on enabling 5G in mmWave spectrum because that is where the largest amount of new spectrum is. For 5G to succeed, it must deliver a 10X-50X increase in speed and capacity. Blazing fast speed and a massive increase in capacity enable new applications, these new applications create incremental revenue, and incremental revenue is essential to support the business case for 5G.
