Why Enterprises Are Shifting from WiFi to Private 5G Networks for Superior Low-Latency Connectivity

R   Is your company facing inconsistent internet speeds and issues with network reliability?

R   Are you still using Wi-Fi communication for enterprise applications?

Explore how private 5G network networks offer higher speed, lower latency, and better scalability against traditional Wi-Fi systems.


Private 5G Networks

Private 5G networks are designed to be highly customizable, enabling optimization of performance for a variety of operational environments such as expansive warehousing facilities and complex transportation networks. By establishing redundant network paths, continuity of service can be ensured even in the event of hardware failure.

For efficient logistics operations, precise indoor tracking within factories and warehouses is essential, and this is made possible by private 5G networks. These networks also offer several advantages in maintaining robust and uninterrupted connections, thereby minimizing disruptions in the logistics sector.

Is your enterprise facing security vulnerabilities inherent to traditional Wi-Fi networks?

Wi-Fi networks lack the ability to segment at the network layer. However, private 5G networks can create virtually isolated networks through network slicing, complete with dedicated resources and their own security measures. This isolation effectively separates sensitive data and processes from other network traffic.

Furthermore, private 5G networks that utilize licensed spectrum can minimize the risk of signal interference from other wireless devices. This increased reliability of wireless communication is particularly beneficial for mission-critical edge applications where maintaining data integrity and network availability are of the utmost importance.

Private 5G networks can offer enterprises transformative benefits, such as boosting operational efficiency and enhancing supply chain visibility. To remain competitive in the evolving landscape, CIOs and digital transformation managers must evaluate their current connectivity infrastructure and consider the benefits of shifting to private networks.

Why enterprises must choose 5G private networks over Wi-Fi for applications?

Wifi vs Private Networks

Introducing NearbyOne, an orchestration and management platform that operates seamlessly across all three tiers of the network, from the cloud to the edge, from a single pane of glass. This platform handles infrastructure, both virtualized and bare metal, and includes automation of hyperscaler, private cloud, and Kubernetes stack integration

Network slicing has emerged as a promising approach for enabling flexible and efficient resource allocation in multi-protocol networks. In this regard, the NearbyOne system has been developed to facilitate the automatic allocation of network resources to various slices based on the specific requirements of the applications. The automation aspect of this system is critical, as it enables selective exposure of services to specific slices, thus ensuring optimal utilization of network resources.
