Private Networks

Wireless networking in industrial and mission critical domains is a large untapped growth opportunity for smart connected systems. New communication standards for enterprise will create new opportunities to a host of previously infeasible applications, allowing for large, industrial-scale internet-of-things networks in factories, warehouses, ports, and more.

To enable this level of enterprise connectivity—and not just any connectivity, but ultra-reliable, high-speed, low-latency, power-efficient, high-density wireless connectivity—a company likely has two basic options. It can connect to a public LTE/5G network. Or it can opt for a private LTE/5G network, either by purchasing its own infrastructure while contracting for operational support from a mobile operator, or by building and maintaining its own network using its own spectrum. For many of the world’s largest businesses, private LTE & 5G will likely become the preferred choice, especially for industrial applications in sectors such as critical infrastructure, manufacturing plants, logistics centers, ports and terminals.

Nearby Computing together with their eco-system partners can provide a complete solution that will cover the radio network (LTE/5G), the infrastructure and a host of edge applications all orchestrated using the end-to-end cross-domain orchestration platform, the Nearby One.

Advantages of Private Networks

Enterprises have economically sensible use cases and a technologically justified need for private 5G or LTE technology on their premises. New digital use cases like predictive maintenance, AR/VR and smart robotics are increasingly used in day-to-day operations and bring tangible benefits on either or both the cost (productivity gains) or revenue (new customer propositions) sides, resulting in attractive business cases.

The benefits of Private Networks are creating interest in virtually every industry where organizations have large areas filled with lots of devices and applications that absolutely must be connected at all times — and where sensitive data must be gathered and then shared between devices and servers.

Network Infrastructure Providers

Vast areas with complex networking needs

In large spaces with extensive network requirements and hundreds of users and devices, Private Networks helps prevent the congestion likely with Wi-Fi and public cellular and is much less expensive to provision and maintain.

High-risk information

In some scenarios, highly sensitive information that is very valuable to hackers is unavoidable. Organizations such as hospitals can keep important information on-site via Private Networks, enabling additional layers of security unavailable through Wi-Fi.

High-bandwidth traffic within budgetary limitations

Organizations looking to connect many video surveillance cameras could use public cellular network, but data usage likely would be cost-prohibitive. Fixed-rate private cellular is a much more cost-effective option.

Remote locations lacking wireless infrastructure

In the middle of nowhere — in places where carriers have not set up wireless infrastructure — organizations can relatively easily set up a Wireless LAN via private cellular network.

Given the diversity and omnipresence of IoT and connectivity-dependent technologies, Private Cellular Network is becoming very applicable in most industries. The ability to set up a Wireless LAN that is much more high-performing, reliable, flexible, cost-effective, and secure than a Wi-Fi network meets the specific needs found in many use cases
