Mirantis gros fromage quits to start new ‘private LTE’ biz on open-access spectrum

433

The co-founder of Kubernetes cloud outfit Mirantis, Boris Renski, has left the business to start a new venture focused on 5G-based “private LTE” campus networks. Speaking to The Register about his move, Renski explained a little about the technology and his decision to take a punt on it.

At the heart of his move is the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS), which, despite the name, has nothing to do with truckers bellowing “ten-four, good buddy” at each other. Instead it is an open-access chunk of spectrum freshly reallocated from military uses to civilians, around the 3.5GHz band.
