Private LTE Networks for Commercial Real Estate: Infrastructure, Ownership and Service Models

When we talk today about neutral host systems, I’m building a neutral network that allows many different people to connect onto. That’s what we try to do. If we can share fronthaul, backhaul, cabling, switches, that’s a win. We need an infrastructure for everyone. Who owns the in-building wireless infrastructure in the enterprise, property, venue or campus? Learn more about the growing role for third-party integrators and neutral hosts to empower the wireless commercial property and enterprise.

The Business Case for Transportation, Logistics and Warehousing

Many column inches of press have been dedicated to discussing the opportunity for wireless solutions, including private LTE and 5G, in the transportation, logistics and warehousing industries. As well as providing technical solutions to support building operations, such as IoT, security, maintenance, smart HVAC and smart lighting, wireless networks also support employee connectivity, employee tools and automated vehicles around the warehouse. But getting solutions deployed is not easy – this session will discuss the challenges – and successes – and show successful LTE and 5G deployments.

Agri-Business: Ushering in a Wave of Innovation and Automation with E5G

Within the industrial and farming sector, 5G represents a massive leap forward from 4G and legacy networks, because enterprises can opt for a private enterprise-owned 5G network. As the name suggests, all elements of an Enterprise 5G network is fully private and no components are shared. This archetype may be best for agriculture enterprises with highly specialized needs and large-scale operations. Most importantly, an Enterprise 5G network ushers in a new wave of innovative products, services, and application development that until today, only the mobile network operators and public telcos could offer.

Part 1: The Connected City 2.0: Deploying Hosted and Private Future-Proof Infastructure

To move to the next generation of smart cities technology, government officials should look beyond flashy one-off use cases and revisit the fundamental issues they confront in other areas of governance, including doing more with less and maximizing the use of their existing assets. The base layer of a city’s digital plan is made up of its physical infrastructure (roads, poles, rails, buildings, and parking facilities). These hard assets need to be smart and connected, which comprises a significant new area of opportunity for civic leaders and infrastructure companies to design, build, and operate— in a public–private partnership – a next generation private 5G network designed with future needs (including autonomous vehicles) in mind.
