At the Indian Mobile Congress (IMC) 2022, Echelon Edge presented Private Network and NMS at the VoICE Atmanirbhar Pavilion, providing a secure and reliable work environment for government departments and businesses. We have designed our Private Network solution with advanced technologies such as AI, edge computing, and 5G that address the connectivity and security challenges faced by enterprises. 

The emergence of 5G has resulted in significant use cases for the industry and favorable regulatory changes regarding spectrum availability for companies, contributing to the growing demand for Private 5G networks. According to Grandview research, the private 5G network market is projected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 49.0% between 2022 and 2030. 

What is Private Network? 

A private network is a dedicated, closed system of communication that is not reliant on public networks. Unlike public networks, which are accessible to anyone, private networks provide a higher level of  

  • Security 
  • Reliability, and  
  • Control.  

Now that we have a grasp of Private Networks, let’s delve further into Private 5G Networks. 

A Private 5G network is a type of private network that uses 5G technology to provide high-speed connectivity and support a wide range of applications. In contrast, a private network can use a variety of different technologies, such as Wi-Fi, Ethernet, or cellular, to provide connectivity within a specific organization or enterprise. 

In addition, private 5G networks are designed to operate in a dedicated frequency spectrum, which provides increased control, security, and privacy compared to public networks. This allows organizations to have greater control over their network infrastructure and ensure that their data and communications are secure and protected. 

Why Private Networks in Industry 4.0? 

Let’s explore the digitalization benefits of Private Networks that are going to transform the digital world: 

  • Reliable & Scalable Network to Minimize Downtime: By utilizing a highly reliable and scalable network with Service Level Agreements (SLAs) from the mobile network operator, businesses can minimize production line downtime. This helps to ensure the uptime and availability of critical systems and equipment, resulting in increased efficiency and productivity. 
  • High-bandwidth Wireless Connectivity for Flexibility: By supporting reliable and high-bandwidth wireless connectivity, industrial campuses can enhance manufacturing flexibility. This enables businesses to adapt quickly to changing demands, reducing downtime and improving overall efficiency. 
  • Monitoring Goods & Supplies Across the Supply Chain: Effective monitoring of goods and supplies across the supply chain is crucial for businesses to maintain efficiency and profitability. By leveraging these networks, businesses can track inventory and supplies in real time, reducing waste and improving overall supply chain management. 
  • High Reliability for Critical Monitoring & Control Applications: Primary production industries, such as mining, oil extraction, quarrying, and refining, rely on high reliability and critical monitoring and control applications. By utilizing Private networks, businesses can ensure the smooth and safe operation of these industries, increasing efficiency and productivity. 
  • Guaranteed Bandwidth to Maximize Output Quality: Maximizing productivity and output quality is crucial for businesses to remain competitive. Using Private Networks while delivering guaranteed bandwidth, businesses can support key use cases such as high-resolution machine imaging, resulting in better quality products and increased efficiency. 
  • Real-time Decision Making with Edge Processing & Ultra-low Latency Network: Real-time decision-making is critical for businesses to respond quickly to changing situations. By using locally deployed edge processing capabilities and ultra-low latency network infrastructure, businesses can make decisions in real-time, increasing efficiency and productivity.
