A new generation of private 5G networks is emerging to address critical wireless communication requirements in public safety, operations of industries, and critical infrastructure. These private networks are physical or virtual cellular systems that have been deployed for private use by a government, company, or group of companies. This space used to be dominated by networks based on technologies such as ethernet, fiber, Wi-Fi, WiMAX, CDMA450 or Bluetooth, but now we are seeing a migration towards 3GPP-based networks. 5G offers a powerful platform with built-in support for the necessary critical capabilities, increased reliability, lower latency, and improved security, meeting the requirements of business- and mission-critical applications.
In this FIIF event we will look at private 5G networks from different angles, like that of a technology provider (Nokia), an operator (DNA), a test network provider (VTT), and a customer (Kalmar).
