5G is a double edge sword.
On one side, it brings a new set of functionalities that will drive demand for more connectivity and even more critical and vital applications. This includes seamless mobility and connectivity with top Quality of Services (QoS)/Quality of Experience (QoE), massive IoT connectivity, etc., promising to pave the way for a new generation of connected applications.
So will it be another layer of complexity for enterprise networks? Not necessarily, as 5G is also aiming at simplifying private and semi-private network configuration and management. It should bring high interoperability with legacy technologies and a network slicing technology that can open new collaboration schemes between industrial players and the telecom ecosystem.
But what does it take today to develop and deploy a secure private network?
Based on Capgemini Engineering’s experience of deploying breakthrough communications and networking technologies and innovative projects in an industrial environment, this white paper explores the following questions:
- What are the key technical and connectivity features of the private 4G/5G network?
- What are the critical use cases of such private networks?
- How to make them work? What is the ideal ecosystem to deploy a
cost-effective, productivity factor private network?
