Private Cellular Networking

Gain increased coverage and enhanced security using 4G LTE and 5G private networks.

Read Leveraging the Private Network Opportunity

Maximize Reliability and Security

Create a high-reliability closed environment for real-time critical application such as manufacturing, automation or autonomous vehicle control.  Ensure security far superior to Public Networking or Wi-Fi. 


Maximize Coverage

Gain coverage in remote areas and ensure coverage in hard-to-reach areas including mines and dead zones in warehouses with 4G LTE and 5G private networks. Cover large areas such as airports without the need for massive numbers of Wi-Fi routers.

Reduce Costs

Despite high initial investment costs, private LTE/5G networks can cost less to administer and maintain than Wi-Fi networks. In addition, with private LTE/5G networks, companies can avoid ongoing network data charges.

Private Cellular Networking Use Cases


Private Networks provide the low-latency, high-reliability and coverage that mining operations require. This coverage extends to remote mining locations as well as deep underground.


Take advantage of innovative robotics, product tracking and other IoT warehouse applications without the high-cost and dead zones associated with Wi-Fi deployments.

Transportation Venues

Airports present significant cost and bandwidth challenges for Wi-Fi network deployments. A private network delivers excellent coverage both in-building and outdoors across the entire airport, eliminating interference and dead zones.
