Sprint will provide the federal and public sector with a portfolio of converged wireless, internet of things, security and wireline platforms through its communications network.
Chris Felix, a 27-year telecommunications industry veteran, has been appointed vice president of government solutions at Sprint, to oversee the delivery of converged wireless platforms to federal government clients, the company said Thursday.
Sprint will leverage its mobile platforms, sensor technology and other IoT systems to facilitate fleet and asset tracking operations, mobility and ensure security of cloud-based computing and communications.
The communications services firm will increase the use of small cells to address coverage gaps in dense urban sites and provide federal agencies access to GPS services and mission-critical data through its 5G network.
Sprint will also leverage investments from parent company SoftBank to continue to build up its telecommunications offerings and support the Fisher House Foundation that helps families of military retirees who are under medical treatment.
