Private Mobile Networks

Smart production line

Data plays a key role in decision-making, managing production processes, ensuring security, and monitoring equipment and production processes in modern enterprises. Sensors and cameras get installed to collect real-time data, which is generated and transmitted for processing. Wireless networks such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and mobile networks are the optimal way to transmit data, guaranteeing high speed and minimal latency. The number of 5G networks is rapidly increasing, providing maximum data transmission speed and minimal signal delay.

However, due to security requirements, reliability of the connection, and compliance with specific network requirements, data cannot be transmitted through public mobile operator networks. Therefore, companies utilize private 5G networks, which offer several advantages:

  1. Fast speed: 5G provides much higher data transmission speeds compared to other types and generations of networks. This allows users to transmit and receive information much faster.
  2. Lower latency: 5G has significantly lower latency or time lag compared to previous generations of networks. This means that information is transmitted almost instantaneously, which is especially useful for real-time applications, such as autonomous vehicles.
  3. Increased network capacity: 5G networks have greater capacity to serve multiple devices simultaneously without compromising speed or quality. You can see an example of this in one of our previous articles. This is particularly useful when numerous devices, such as sensors, cameras, and other IoT devices, are connected to the network simultaneously.
  4. Coverage: 5G has the potential to provide better coverage and signal in hard-to-reach areas such as mines, industrial buildings, and indoor spaces. This is achieved through the use of different frequency ranges and signal transmission technologies that enhance network availability.
  5. Support for a larger number of IoT devices: 5G is designed to accommodate the growing number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and can simultaneously serve a large number of connected devices.
  6. More reliable communication: 5G offers more reliable communication and stable connections even under high network congestion. This means you will have a more stable connection and a lower chance of disconnection during calls or internet usage.

A private mobile network consists of several key components that work together for communication and data transmission. The main components and their roles are as follows:

  1. Network Core: This is the “brain” of the network. It processes and directs data between devices in the network. The network core includes switches, routers, and controllers that help transmit data and manage the network.
  2. Signal Boosting Devices (Repeaters): These devices help extend the signal within the network. They are installed at various points in the network and amplify the signal to facilitate data transmission between devices and the network core. They help expand network coverage and ensure reliable connections within the enterprise.
  3. Access Points: Access points allow devices such as smartphones, tablets, and IoT devices to connect to the network. Access points provide wireless connectivity between devices and the network core. They can be base stations, Wi-Fi access points, or other devices that support the required communication protocols.
  4. IoT Devices: These include sensors, monitors, smart devices, and others. They connect to the private mobile network to transmit data and receive commands from management systems. Private mobile networks provide a reliable and secure connection for connecting and managing IoT devices within the enterprise.
  5. Telecommunication Software: This software provides tools for monitoring, configuring, and managing network resources. It also ensures security and device authentication. Administrators can use management systems to configure network parameters, manage bandwidth, and ensure security.

Private 5G mobile networks are a new communication technology that utilizes telecommunication software for fast and secure data transmission. They offer high-speed information transfer, low latency, and the ability to connect numerous devices simultaneously. These networks perform well even in hard-to-reach areas and can be used for smart devices such as sensors and robots. Implementing such networks can help an enterprise become more efficient and secure, improve its production processes, and remain competitive in the market.
