Advanced devices are emerging across industries to improve the efficiency, accuracy and productivity of companies from manufacturing, to health care to shipping and logistics.
Private networks provide customized solutions that cater to the speed, security, latency and other connectivity requirements that can be fine-tuned for certain environments and advanced machines.
The ability to connect devices and people to secure, reliable and optimized networks from any place at any time will be transformational.
A Wide Range of Service and Deployment Options
Traditionally, private networks have incorporated elements such as Wi-Fi, LTE, Ethernet LANs, and VPNs. However, as service customization opens opportunities beyond connectivity, private networks will increasingly be part of service offerings, including cloud, edge, SD-WAN and security. These service bundles will be opportunities for new offerings that are based on multi-vendor, multi-cloud integrations. In such offerings, access, insights and assets are monetized through partnerships, co-creation and co-innovation.
Example: Airport Private Network
A major airport is a complex communications ecosystem made up of a broad mix of consumers, employees, tenants and contractors, each with different needs and expectations. Connected devices include everything from basic sensors to aircraft engines to devices supporting safety and security. Serving these needs requires the coordination of private networks with edge computing services, cloud storage, data management, orchestration and analysis.
Complex business models coordinated across many providers requires a complete shift in the way monetization is enabled by these platforms. For service providers, this means operational approaches must shift from technical capability to customized enterprise services that can be monetized end-to-end across partners.
This video introduces a (conceptual) private network dashboard at a major international airport. The dashboard provides an overview of the many different networks that serve the airport, their usage patterns, revenue, and SLAs.
A digital marketplace provides self service provisioning of network service, and includes the option to order associated hardware.
The private network dashboard includes alerts that help administrators keep track of usage in a complex ecosystem. They include notifications of high consumption, number of devices, and more.
This dashboard provides information on the network(s) used by specific tenants at the airport — such as airlines or retail shops.
The network requirements of a traveller watching a streaming video is different from those required by IoT security devices. Each private network is associated with custom SLAs and is optimized to balance latency, bandwidth, and device volume as needed by network consumers.
