Building your private wireless network
There are several architecture options to choose from when you deploy a private wireless network. They range from a fully private, on-premises network to private wireless-as-a-service and core slicing. Each architecture has its strengths and weaknesses. Your needs and budget will determine which option is the best fit for your business.
The basic architecture of your private wireless network starts with the placement of radios around your site (or sites) to ensure optimum coverage and dedicated capacity. You then connect the radios to the core, which will perform the network’s key functions. In a 4G/LTE cloud-native private network, an edge cloud server on your premises can perform some functions to improve latency and reliability, or to ensure complete data confidentiality.
Choosing the right architecture for your business
The complexity of implementation and operational costs are highest for autonomous private architecture and lowest for core slicing. Data confidentiality, security and reliability typically decreases with as-a-service and core slicing solutions.
A hybrid private–public architecture could be the right choice if you have operations spread over a wide area, need connectivity with off-site and mobile assets, or prefer to outsource this part of your IT operation.
An autonomous private wireless solution could be the right choice if you need to have full control of your operational technology (OT) network and ensure the reliability and availability of your local operations when failures occur in the outside world.
