Enterprise 5G: Agriculture — A Fertile Opportunity

Recorded; March 11, 2021

The unique CBRS band is the single greatest opportunity to provide connectivity to the more than two million U.S. farms – 29 percent of which have no Internet access at all. Today, cellular service is one of the most prevalent types of Internet connection on America’s farms, along with satellite and xDSL.

Each require a network owner to make them work, as do some of the other options for Internet of Things (IoT) applications – e.g., SigFox, LoRA, LTE-M and NB-IoT. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and ZigBee need an Internet connection to do anything more than provide local area connectivity. Tomorrow, proverbially speaking, everyone from local carriers and systems integrators, to telecom/IT equipment and farming equipment vendors, to the data center powerhouses, can use CBRS to build robust networks on farms. For the Agriculture vertical, this webinar will examine the current opportunities for 5G and LTE networks, including private and neutral host networks, as well as the potential for existing and innovative applications.

 

Enterprise 5G: Healthcare – Healthy as Ever

Recorded; February 18, 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for pervasive access to broadband networks across the country. Never before has “going to the doctor” so consistently meant picking up a device and logging into a telehealth session.

Certainly there is a huge opportunity for CBRS-based private LTE/NR networks to be deployed into health care buildings. Not only would this free up capacity on the existing Wi-Fi networks in those buildings, but would also help improve privacy, security and even throughput and latency as doctors and other experts examine patient data. Millimeter wave and the huge throughput it provides may also have an important role to play in the health care sector.

For the healthcare vertical, this webinar will examine the current opportunities for 5G networks, including private and neutral host networks, as well as the potential for existing and innovative applications.

This webinar will also identify critical success factors, where the key opportunities exist, examine current trials and/or commercial deployments of 4G/5G private/neutral host networks, and highlight some of the pitfalls to avoid when deploying wireless network solutions in healthcare buildings.

Enterprise 5G – Education – A Master’s Class in 5G Opportunities

Recorded; January 14, 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown the spotlight on the opportunity for wireless bandwidth across all parts of the education ecosystem, from Kindergarten through High School and into colleges and universities. Broadband connectivity is needed for students and faculty alike, both on campus, in buildings and at home. This presents a significant opportunity for private LTE and 5G networks, which can use CBRS or mobile operator spectrum.

For the education vertical, this webinar will examine the current opportunities for 5G networks, including private and neutral host networks, as well as the potential for existing and innovative applications.

This webinar will also identify critical success factors, where the key opportunities exist, examine current trials and/or commercial deployments of 4G/5G private/neutral host networks, and highlight some of the pitfalls to avoid when deploying a wireless network solution on campuses and/or in buildings.

Cellular Interconnect on CBRS and Private LTE Networks

Recorded: October 1, 2020
CBRS enables the deployment of a private, self-contained LTE network inside a building, on a campus or over a wider area. While this closed network will address many needs, a wide range of industries and applications will need connectivity to the public cellular networks as well for wide area coverage. How is this accomplished? What additional elements must be considered when designing the private LTE deployment? Are there special application considerations? How does edge compute operate over the wide area? And what is the relationship with the mobile network operator? This webinar will answer all these questions – and more – enabling you to effectively integrate the private LTE network with the public networks.

The Nuts and Bolts of Private LTE Network Design & Deployment

Recorded: September 17,, 2020
The design considerations for a private LTE deployment will need to address the: radio network; EPC; Edge Computing; WAN connectivity; SAS connectivity (if using CBRS); application integration; SIM card procurement, distribution and management; and device procurement and distribution. All of these elements can be challenging but are also easily addressed using the write expertise. This webinar will examine how a private LTE is designed, the steps that need to be taken, and how to avoid some common pit falls. And ultimately, answer the question ‘how do I get started?’

Lease or Buy? The Economics of Enterprise Private LTE Network Deployment

Recorded: July 21, 2020
Enterprises and organizations deploying private LTE networks have many options when it comes to funding the deployment. The network equipment can be purchased outright, installed and maintained by internal staff or by a trusted partner. The network equipment can also be leased and paid for as-a-Service. And many parts of the Private LTE solution can be hosted, allowing the resources to scale as needed. This webinar will explore all of these options, discuss the best-fit for various applications and deployments, and examine the costs associated with Private LTE deployment, using both licensed and unlicensed spectrum options.

Connectivity-as-a-Service: Plug-n-Play Simplicity with Carrier Quality Connectivity

Recorded: June 30, 2020

COVID-19 has changed the way people will work, how they work, and where they go to work.  As the country starts to recover from the pandemic, businesses are clamoring for increased, improved and more flexible communications.  Rather than just the ability to work from home, employees will need the ability to work from anywhere, anytime, without restriction.  In short, enterprises and business are asking for Connectivity-as-a-Service (CaaS).

Enterprise private LTE networks, CBRS and edge computing architectures are key components of and enablers of CaaS.  Private LTE networks will enable employees to work seamlessly around a building, campus or across town.  This webinar will look at how private LTE, CBRS and edge compute enable CaaS, which vendors can provide the necessary solutions, and how enterprises can deploy CaaS and get back to work.

All of these questions – and more – will be answered in this webinar, hosted by Iain Gillott of iGR, with special guest speakers and presentations.

How Does Private LTE Evolve into 5G?

Recorded: June 18, 2020

oday’s enterprise private LTE networks use, no surprise, LTE technology and devices, in many cases based on the CBRS spectrum. But CBRS can also support 5G network technologies and today’s private LTE will soon start to migrate to private 5G. This webinar looks at the benefits that enterprises will realize from the move to 5G, how the network evolves, which vendors and solutions are required, and what are the likely time frames.

We will also examine how enterprise LTE and 5G networks can connect to the public LTE and 5G networks run by the big operators, how business communications can be managed between the private and public networks and the applications and services that can benefit your business.

All of these questions – and more – will be answered in this webinar, hosted by Iain Gillott of iGR, with special guest speakers and presentations.
