Private networks refer to localized wireless networks that are built using 4G or 5G technology and are usually dedicated to a specific organization or group. These networks are distinct from public wireless networks provided by telecommunication operators and are designed to meet the unique requirements of specific industries or use cases.
The function of private cellular networks centers around small cells (or radios). Strategically distributed radios, create a mesh of coverage to optimize signal strength and minimize dead zones in and around a facility. These radios are connected to a private core network which manages data routing and user authentication.
Voice and data traffic flow seamlessly within the private network, avoiding the vulnerabilities associated with public networks. Quality of Service (QoS) mechanisms further prioritize critical applications, ensuring smooth operations even during peak usage.
Incorporating the latest 5G technology, private cellular networks unlock a new realm of possibilities. Ultra-reliable low latency communication (URLLC) and massive machine-type communication (mMTC) empower industries to implement real-time applications and IoT solutions with unprecedented efficiency.
