NeXtworking Platform in Action
Expeto’s Enterprise First™ commitment shines bright across Day 1 and Day 2 of your network journey. Whether deploying a preconfigured private network or leveraging your preferred public mobile carrier, Expeto installation and ongoing operation is simple, fast, and affordable. After completing your Expeto Platform Subscription agreement, our customer success team will provide you with all you need to extend your network.
For private network deployments, Expeto or one of its partners works with you and your chosen RAN provider (Expeto is open and compatible with most RAN vendors) to ensure the design and staging processes are complete. After this, Expeto installs your xCore™ in the server you designate behind your security firewall as well as the credentials to deploy and securely access the xRouter™ and xControl™ portals. xCore™ then attaches to your RAN, and you can deploy devices and configure your network, your way.
For public network deployments, Expeto installs your xCore™ in the server you designate behind your security firewall as well as the credentials to deploy and securely access the xRouter™ and xControl™ portal. xCore™ then attaches to the mobile operator of your choice, and you can deploy devices and configure your network, your way.
The Expeto NeXtworking™ platform provides seamless integration into your existing IT systems so you can extend existing networks with the power of 5G and other 3GPP-compatible cellular networks — private and/or public — and even utilize both simultaneously. After installation, use the xControl™ portal to set up, operate, and monitor your network. This includes deployment of devices with your SIM cards across all Expeto-powered networks. Expeto provides the SIM cards; you configure these SIMs, your way, establishing network segments and relevant policies, such as Quality of Service (QoS), data routing, and IP-address assignments to devices on your network. And, in the blink of an eye, devices such as sensors, robots, drones, tablets, and control relays power on, attach to your network, and spring into action.
Operation and administration of your Expeto-powered PMN past Day 2 is facilitated and simplified with xControl™. From here, you can add new networks and sites, create or change segment policies, add or delete devices, and analyze network performance and usage analytics. Just point and click across the intuitive interface to take control and personalize your experience. xControl™ comes with several preconfiguration choices and provides various reports to choose from. You can move devices from one segment to another, load balance between networks, and much more, giving you everything you need to run your network, your way.
24x7x365 support is included in every Expeto NeXtworking™ subscription as is our commitment to a 99.999% platform service-level agreement (SLA). You will receive communications via your xControl™ portal from our platform team and will enjoy immediate access to the Expeto portal for all the platform documentation and support you need to deploy and operate your mission-critical network.
Expeto NetXworking Platform is sold as a managed service on a subscription basis. Platform upgrades, support, APIs, and documentation are included with your subscription. Extending your managed service to include support for your RAN is also available — just contact your Expeto or Expeto partner representative.

What can I expect from Expeto?
Expeto was founded on a simple yet compelling principle: Enable meaningful IoT outcomes by transforming traditional mobile network complexity into IT simplicity. We conceived and built our entire product to accomplish the goal of deploying new digital technologies to enable new business models.
Other companies provide PMNs as network-in-a-box solutions. Some require extensive customization to meet corporate requirements before they can be deployed. Others are limited to specific solutions and are less flexible, restricting the evolution or customization of your network. Expeto’s PMN is scalable, flexible, secure, intuitive, and supported by the Expeto NeXtworking platform.
What is the Expeto NeXtworking platform?
Expeto’s PMN is built on the Expeto NeXtworking platform which includes xCore™, xRouter™, and xControl™. As such, xCore™ can be installed and deployed behind your firewall, integrate seamlessly with your existing IT network, be managed through xControl™, and interface with xRouter™ to provide both public and private access.
Can I access my private network in Texas from my private villa in Barcelona?
Sí. Expeto has agreements with global public mobile network operators which allow access to your private network with a device using your private SIM through public mobile network carriers. A secure IPsec connection and tunnel is established between xRouter™ and xCore™ to securely transfer data.
How do I actually manage and monitor my Expeto Private Network?
Network administration is available through the browser-based xControl™ application. Simply log into xControl™ to access subscriber management and network monitoring. Alternatively, you could use the REST API if that better suits your preferences.
Does Expeto support network slicing or segmentation?
First, to be clear, network slicing is 5G-specific terminology equivalent to 4G network segmentation. The answer is yes. Expeto currently supports network segmentation by creating separate Packet Gateways (PGW) for specified CIDR ranges. This creation of subnets is then mapped to an existing IT network. Devices identified by IMSI addresses are then assigned to a network segment, allowing you to create secure and separate subnets; for example, one for IoT devices, and another for employees.
Does Expeto integrate with other applications and platforms?
The Expeto NeXtworking platform is designed for the enterprise. It allows for integration with a variety of data and analytics systems, Business Process Management (BPM) platforms, and other enterprise applications through a RESTful API connection.
