As 5G and internet of things (IoT) technologies spread and the world demands more bandwidth, connectivity solutions will continue to evolve to meet changing end-user needs. Private LTE networks are an example of an emerging and attractive option for enterprises and organizations seeking a cost-effective yet high-quality network that will work with both current and emerging use cases.
Private LTE uses local cellular towers and cell sites to establish connectivity in a smaller form factor than public LTE networks. It can be used to supplement current networks to reduce congestion and add security, or to build out a cost-effective, standalone network where there’s no existing infrastructure. A report by Mobile Experts predicts the private LTE/5G market to triple by 2025.
The growth of these networks makes sense. These networks offer high performance, security and flexibility with minimal infrastructure build-out. They can be installed across a range of use cases, such as in manufacturing, mining, smart cities and more.
