What applications and tasks are private networks best suited for?
Most of the discussions we engage in focus on how and why private networks can support existing Wi-Fi or cabled networks, or even replace them. Enterprises have numerous high-performance requirements that their network needs to support, such as enhanced mobility, capacity for mission-critical applications, and higher security standards. These are some of the key strengths of a private network.
Private networks also address a large variety of use cases. Take stadiums, which often host tens of thousands of people. They need to ensure these visitors can enjoy high-speed internet access, while also prioritizing and managing other tools and services, such as live-streaming security cameras.
Meanwhile, Industry 4.0 relies on ultra-low latency and very high reliability (up to 99.9999% SLAs) for smart manufacturing. Underground stations and in-building services also use neutral host networks that allow multiple operators to co-access the network and provide high-speed internet access using the shared spectrum. This creates better high-speed access in congested areas.
