C Spire Launches First-of-its-Kind, End-to-End Remote Connectivity Solution


New product empowers organizations to streamline and automate the deployment of complex technology solutions

RIDGELAND, Miss. (April 23, 2024) – C Spire, a diversified telecommunications and technology services company, today launched C Spire Passport, an end-to-end remote connectivity solution to quickly provision, deploy, optimize and maintain Cisco devices on networks at scale. The technology seamlessly connects roadway locations, customer data centers and cloud resources.

When restoring resources during crises or connecting devices to Intelligent Transportation Systems, speed is vital in helping reduce total recovery time or increase productivity. To that end, C Spire Passport gives field personnel the power to independently deploy managed SD-WAN routers and centrally manage configuration while providing multi-layered security and macro segmentation. It supports local data processing by isolating services into dedicated virtual networks and providing onboard edge computing. To ensure uninterrupted connectivity, it offers redundancy options with multiple carriers and technologies as well as native hybrid cloud connectivity.

The platform combines the power of Cisco Identity Service Engine (ISE) and Catalyst SD-WAN Manager through an easy-to-use web portal. It also allows field technicians to remotely view, manage and securely deploy network devices from any location. In addition, the technology alleviates time constraints, resource availability and budget limitations for strategic IT teams by removing core personnel from edge deployment workflows.

“C Spire Passport makes the management of complex technology solutions easier with automation and reduces deployment times from weeks to minutes,” said Drake Cushing, general manager for C Spire’s business division. “Our new platform demonstrates how we are advancing our mission to offer best-in-class technology solutions that provide value to our customers and help them manage the needs of modern business.”

C Spire Passport features:

  • Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)
  • Self-service web interface
  • Network-as-a-Service/on-demand automated delivery
  • More accurate budget forecasting
  • Automated endpoint security and device authorization standards
