Frequently Asked Questions


What is a private network?

A private network is a type of communication network that is exclusively used by a specific entity, organization, or group and is not available for public access. Unlike public networks that allow any user within its range to connect and access its resources, a private network has controlled access mechanisms, often fortified with security protocols, to restrict usage only to authorized entities. Several defining characteristics differentiate private networks from other types of networks:
  • Dedication of Resources: Private networks often have dedicated resources, which can include hardware infrastructure like servers and switches, operational platforms, and even specific communication channels or spectrums. This ensures that the network’s performance remains optimal, as it doesn’t have to share its resources with random users.
  • Controlled and Secured Access: One of the hallmarks of a private network is the tight control over who can access it. Users may require specialized credentials, encryption keys, or specific SIM cards. Access control measures are implemented to protect sensitive data and to prevent unauthorized intrusions.
  • Customizability: Because the private network is tailored for a specific entity or group, it can be customized extensively to meet unique requirements. This can range from specific performance metrics and applications that run on the network to how data is routed and stored.
  • Varied Scope and Scale: Private networks can differ vastly in their scope and scale. Some may be as small as a home network connecting a few devices, while others can be expansive, such as corporate networks spanning multiple geographical locations. Yet, others could be specific-use networks like those used in a single facility or factory.
  • Enhanced Performance Metrics: Private networks can be designed to meet specific Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), ensuring that they deliver on attributes such as speed, latency, uptime, and reliability. This is especially crucial for businesses or applications that cannot compromise on network performance.
  • Data Privacy and Security: Given the restricted access and controlled environment, private networks often offer a higher degree of data privacy and security compared to their public counterparts. They can employ advanced encryption, firewall protections, intrusion detection systems, and other security mechanisms to safeguard data.
In summary, a private network is a dedicated communication framework designed to cater to the specific needs of a particular group or organization, emphasizing controlled access, security, customizability, and optimized performance.   



What is a private 5G network?

A private 5G network is a localized cellular network infrastructure specifically designed to use the 5G standard for a particular business or organizational use, isolated from the broader public 5G networks operated by telecom carriers. It is built to serve the dedicated operational requirements of a single entity or specific user group and is not available for public access. Several defining attributes differentiate private 5G networks from public 5G networks:
  • Dedication of Resources: Just as with private networks in general, private 5G networks have dedicated resources, ensuring optimal performance. This can include dedicated radio equipment, servers, and even specific bands of the radio spectrum, allowing for greater control over network traffic and reduced latency.
  • Controlled and Secured Access: Access to the private 5G network is typically restricted to authorized users or devices within a specific organization or facility. This provides enhanced security, preventing unauthorized devices from connecting to the network.
  • Customizability: Private 5G networks can be tailored to meet specific organizational needs. This means they can be designed to prioritize certain types of data, handle specific volumes of traffic, or offer enhanced reliability for critical applications.
  • Deployment Flexibility: Organizations can choose where and how they deploy their private 5G infrastructure, allowing for network coverage in areas that may be underserved by public 5G networks, such as remote locations or specific zones within a manufacturing facility.
  • Enhanced Data Privacy: Given the closed nature of the private 5G network, data transmitted remains within the confines of the network, ensuring heightened data privacy and compliance with internal policies or regulatory mandates.
  • Advanced Performance and Reliability: With the ability to customize and control the network environment, organizations can ensure high reliability, low latency, and other performance attributes critical to specific use cases like automation, IoT devices, or augmented reality applications.
  • Operational Efficiency and Independence: Organizations can operate and manage their private 5G networks independently or with reduced dependence on external telecom providers. This can lead to faster issue resolution, better alignment with business goals, and potential cost savings in the long run.
In essence, a private 5G network is a specialized cellular infrastructure leveraging the advancements of the 5G standard, designed exclusively for specific organizational needs. It offers the benefits of the 5G technology, such as high bandwidth, low latency, and massive device connectivity, but within a controlled, secure, and customizable environment tailored for business or specific operational requirements.

 

What are the benefits of private 5G for enterprises?

Private networks, particularly those based on the 5G/LTE standard, are increasingly being recognized for their advantages to enterprises. Here’s an in-depth look at these benefits:
  • Superior Network Coverage and Capacity: Unlike traditional networks, private 5G/LTE networks guarantee extensive coverage, especially in locations where Wi-Fi or wired networks might be inadequate. This ensures efficient communication among machines, sensors, and personnel in settings like smart factories. As a result, there’s a notable surge in efficiency, minimized interruptions, and heightened productivity.
  • Guaranteed Performance: These networks offer deterministic performance, ensuring a promised level of service quality, latency, and bandwidth. This is especially invaluable for sectors like manufacturing, healthcare, or transportation, where the consistent and reliable performance of applications and devices is non-negotiable.
  • Enhanced Security and Data Privacy: Given that enterprises have complete dominion over their private 5G/LTE networks, they can impose stringent access controls. This ensures that only authorized personnel and devices can access the network. Additionally, the capability to process data locally using edge cloud adds another layer of data security, guarding against potential cyber threats.
  • Low Latency and Real-time Edge Computing: One of the standout features of private 5G/LTE networks is their ability to facilitate low-latency communications paired with edge computing. This combination allows data processing to happen locally, enabling instantaneous decisions without relying on distant cloud computing. Such a feature is indispensable in applications demanding immediate feedback, for instance, robotics or autonomous driving.
  • Scalability for High-density Deployments: Private 5G/LTE networks are tailored to support large-scale deployments of interconnected devices and applications without any detriment to the network’s performance. This is particularly relevant for endeavors like smart cities or expansive industrial IoT setups.
  • Adaptable Network Design and Deployment: The adaptability of private 5G/LTE networks in terms of their design, roll-out, and administration stands out. Enterprises have the freedom to mold the network according to their specific requirements, whether it’s merging with other network technologies or setting up in diverse locations.
  • Unparalleled Control Over Network: Complete control over the network translates to the ability for businesses to fine-tune every aspect of it. This includes optimizing performance metrics, fortifying security protocols, ensuring consistent reliability, and, most importantly, preserving data privacy.
In summary, private 5G/LTE networks present a compelling array of benefits for enterprises. From providing robust coverage to ensuring top-notch security, from enabling real-time data processing to offering unmatched scalability, these networks are an excellent choice for businesses that prioritize consistent, secure, and high-performance connectivity for their critical applications and devices.
