As digital transformation sweeps across entire industries, enterprises and verticals are increasingly demanding dependable, predictable communications across potentially widely distributed centers of operation. Enterprise applications are becoming both more rigorous and precise in their requirements for spectrum, bandwidth, and fine-grained control of applications and containers – regardless of access technology or operating model.
Private enterprise networks of the future could likely be a hybrid network that combines both Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) and non-3GPP access and operating models. 3GPP technologies will add new spectrum and deterministic radio access, but enterprises will likely incorporate both 3GPP and non-3GPP elements into networks that will be managed one of three ways: by the enterprise, by the mobile network operator, or as separate networks running in parallel.
“Private and Enterprise Networks” was developed and written by a 5G Americas technical work group led by network engineering experts from Cisco and Intel. It includes the following topics:
- Identifies various network operating models and architectures
- Discusses operating model options faced by private or enterprise operators
- Explores tools available to speed deployment of private networks to meet individual enterprise needs
