Why Invest In Private Wireless?

INTRODUCTION:

The demand for available bandwidth has never been greater, as data continues to grow exponentially. More people and devices are connecting in more ways than ever before. IT leaders are seeking new technology to connect and empower their businesses. CBRS spectrum, a significant amount of bandwidth made available recently through the FCC, allows Enterprises and venues to build and own private wireless networks. This provides the ability to own the customer experience, reduce cost by unwiring complex back office systems, analyze data, and leverage new connected applications as an augment to WIFI in a hyper secure and local manner.

“Cellular grade radios can cover up to 20,000 square feet, 8X that of a traditional access point.”

CBRS – A CONNECTION TO THE FUTURE

IT leaders are discovering an untapped piece of spectrum that can transform their businesses through Private Wireless. With a single deployment, private network owners can deliver industrial-grade connectivity, taking advantage of new technology with all the rights of ownership. CBRS uniquely addresses enterprise needs: seeking the ability to maximize simultaneous users, address peak bandwidth, increase overall network flexibility and provide a path to 5G experience. Private wireless systems represent a unique opportunity for property owners to become ‘broadband landlords’ in the new mobile economy.

SIX CRITICAL POINTS FOR SUCCESSFUL PRIVATE WIRELESS

1. PERFORMANCE

To maximize network speed and performance, the key is having radios that support the full 150 MHz CBRS supports. Further, additional utility can be gained by using multi-band radios that not only take advantage of CBRS, but also select carrier bands, creating an avenue for traditional carriers to plug into locally owned system. Tests, conducted and validated by third-party platforms, have shown more than 5,000 simultaneous connected users on a single CBRS radio, delivering a baseline of performance critical for the breadth of devices required in diverse IOT, smartphone, and data-connected enterprise environments. In addition to capacity, peak speeds and minimized latency are required when integrating applications like augmented or virtual reality, large file downloads such as schematics, or supporting edge-based cloud applications such as gaming or complex manufacturing operations. The same platform demonstrated speeds of 800+ Mbps to a single device, speeds rivaling current 5G deployed networks.

2. SECURITY

On commercial cellular networks, your data is encrypted, and your identity is authenticated and protected both by the network and your device. Wi-Fi networks, on the other hand, can vary widely when it comes to security. Superior cellular grade security is of critical importance to IT leaders conscious of protecting their users and business. Supporting a new level of security for co-located wireless networks is paramount for protecting data.

3. COVERAGE

Cellular grade radios can cover up to 20,000 square feet, 8X that of a traditional access point. Making the right radio choice in larger areas is critical. Higher performing radios mean less cabling and less cost overall.

4. SCALABILITY

Software based systems are designed to scale quickly and efficiently with upgrades delivered via software from 4G to 5G. A software-based design maximizes agility, supported by a central deployment in any data center or edge location, running on common hardware, allowing basic plug-and-play deployment on standard racks and servers.

5. SIMPLICITY & ACCESSIBILITY

Fewer radios, fewer wires, remotely upgraded equipment. Small form-factor Ethernet bridges, USB Dongles, or localized gateways provide flexible and reusable connectivity methods that can align with overall IP networking topology. Smart phone options are growing quickly with support on the latest iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, and Google Pixel devices. Supported smartphones are expected to grow exponentially over the next few years. Managed service options – Private Wireless systems are IT friendly, allowing direct consumption by existing management software.

6. MONETIZATION

Network slicing allows you to flexibly carve bandwidth to use or sell to best fit your business needs. Maximizing the ability to slice is key to the overall utility of the network. A Private Wireless network through the most advanced providers comes with up to 15 dedicated high speed ‘lanes’ that can be sold, giving you more than 1GB per second per radio. The opportunity to monetize networks is only limited by the types of services that you are looking to mobilize or unwire. The ability to intelligently allocate spectrum resources for different functions and applications simultaneously will be a vital component to provide enterprises with new levels of custom application support, such as dedicated secure voice communications, integrated building IOT operations, and significantly augmented bandwidth for employee or machine use.
