Private mobile networks as a service
Mobile connectivity is essential to business processes which are ever more demanding on information availability and instantaneous access to data. With throughput, latency, up time and other KPIs being crucial for the mobile service, the organisation has to secure a far above average network performance. This it can ascertain through SLAs with incumbents if so provided or alternatively through private mobile networks. LTE is already being deployed and 5G holds many more promises for the enterprise domain. A rapid explosion of business-critical networks is foreseen by almost every analyst. These networks can either be procured as an investment or sourced as a service; the latter being of interest when the organisation wants to concentrate on its core business and wants to abstain from maintaining non-core knowledge such as on 4 and 5G. This presentation will elaborate on the ample opportunities in the market for these varying sourcing strategies.
