This comprehensive blog post delves into how private wireless networks are the catalyst for innovative change across diverse industries. From manufacturing to aerospace, it unravels the potential of private networks in enhancing operational efficiency, driving innovation, and paving the way for future advancements.
“The Evolution of Private Wireless Networks: An In-depth Exploration into the Past, Present, and Future” offers a comprehensive exploration of private wireless networks. The article traces their development from proprietary technologies to LTE and 5G, while also forecasting their future influenced by emerging technologies and regulatory changes. A concise guide to understanding the past, present, and potential future of these pivotal communication systems.
The Icelandic government has initiated a program to assess the suitability of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) space-based connectivity across the Arctic nation in partnership with a satellite communications company, OneWeb. Iceland will initially evaluate OneWeb’s Global Connectivity Solution over the course of a three-month trial period. It will then have the option to extend services indefinitely, which could include the deployment of additional ground-based infrastructure as well as airborne, maritime, and on-the-pause/on-the-move UTs.
The private network revolution is transforming how businesses secure their operations and data by leveraging connectivity and emerging technologies. These dedicated private networks offer enhanced security, improved network performance, scalability, better control, and support for edge computing, network slicing, and IoT applications. As a result, businesses can embrace Industry 4.0, leading to increased efficiency and automation. While there are challenges to consider, such as cost, regulatory requirements, and integration with existing infrastructure, businesses are adopting these technologies and securing their future in the digital landscape.
Nokia first to offer CE-certified turnkey automated drone solution, connected over 4G/LTE and 5G, including drones with dual gimbal camera, docking station, and edge data processing.
Use of Nokia Drone Networks docking station enables 24/7 fully remote drone operations and charging.
Open API framework allows integration of third-party applications for extensive customization of the solution to expand use cases and capabilities.
Sateliot has launched the first satellite of a new LEO constellation to enhance 5G IoT coverage by merging satellite and terrestrial connectivity. The company aims for global coverage and massive IoT adoption with its innovative constellation.
In partnership with Ericsson and Saab, Purdue University Airport has unveiled a one-of-a-kind 5G network designed to function as a “lab to life” testing ground. This platform will enable academics, researchers, and businesses to create scalable commercial solutions aimed at enhancing operations and security for airports of varying sizes.
A drone flying cell tower is a small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) equipped with a 5G base station, which can be deployed to provide coverage in remote or hard-to-reach areas. These flying cell towers can be rapidly deployed and offer several advantages over traditional stationary cell towers, including increased flexibility, faster deployment, and the ability to cover larger areas with fewer towers.
This project entails communication between multiple drones in mid-air and various interconnected urban elements for the successful delivery of a package to its designated mobile collection point. It combines multiple technologies – including 5G, C-V2X communications (the same technology employed in modern connected cars), RTK technology, and mobile location. This proposal, a part of Telefónica’s 5G Madrid project, has been made possible by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation through Red.es with co-financing from FEDER funds under the established call for 5G grants. To ensure the success of this project, Telefónica has partnered with Correos as their use case recipient and also teamed up with Gradiant, Ericsson, and Genasys.
The Royal Air Force has agreed to a new partnership with OneWeb, which will see the low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite communications company sign a two-season prime sponsorship deal with the RAF’s Rugby Union (RAFRU) teams. This sponsorship gives Oneweb the opportunity to understand better how the RAF operates and also allows them to better understand how its global connectivity platform can meet the future demands of defense around the world.
In this edition of the 5G Magazine, we take a reality check focusing on the actual use cases and applications being deployed across industry verticals, the related ecosystem players, and what value 5G is adding to the corresponding use cases and applications.
JMA Wireless and telecommunications equipment supplier RIVA Networks are adding private 5G capabilities to the legacy cellular networks at the U.S. Air Force Research Lab (AFRL), Rome Research Site (RRS) — which is dedicated to command, control, and communications research and development — as part of the Department of Defense’s (DoD) ongoing modernization efforts.
