Technologies evolve. So do the demands on your wireless network. While today’s WiFi can achieve performance levels unimaginable a decade ago, there are limits. Where those limitations begin, private cellular networks excel.
In search of an ultra-reliable, effortlessly mobile wireless network that’s equally suited to both indoor and outdoor environments? Have you considered a private cellular network but found the technology confusing or too costly? Velaspan’s Managed Private Cellular (MPC) offering is a game changer.
What is Private Cellular – and why all the hype?
Today, you can deploy privately the same cellular technology used by commercial carriers – and support a multitude of business services within a defined geographical area. Such dedicated, private cellular networks can be deployed within your enterprise using freely available spectrum (such as CBRS) or leased from a third party.
As the hype around private cellular increases, many vendors are promising to provide “digital transformation” through architectures such as edge computing, hybrid cloud, Industry 4.0, etc. However, some of the most important and practical private cellular use cases can get lost in the hype, become neglected, or get missed entirely.
At Velaspan, our core focus is on practical uses of this technology – delivering solutions driven by mobility, coverage, and reliability – while preparing you for transformative architectures and use cases.
How does WiFi compare to Private Cellular?
|Robust, Orchestrated Roaming / Handover Controlled by System||Roaming||Roaming Controlled by Client Devices Rather than Network Infrastructure|
|Regulated Free Spectrum (Some Countries) via CBRS and OnGo Alliance||Spectrum||Substantial Spectrum Freely Available Virtually Worldwide 2.4GHz, 5GHz, 6GHz|
|SIM Based Authentication / Encryption with Secure Architectures Available||Security||Various Authentication / Encryption Methods (Limited by Legacy Devices)|
|~250Mbps (LTE) / ~1Gbps Network (5G) (Performance Commitment Possible)||Bandwidth||Theoretical Speed up to 9.6Gbps
Shared Bandwidth with QoS Options (Best Effort – Performance Varies)
|Greater Transmit Power & Receive Sensitivity Allows for Larger Cells (Up to 15x WiFi Coverage)||Coverage||Limited Transmit Power Allows for Modest Coverage Cells|
|Growing Number of CBRS LTE Devices||Devices||Virtually Ubiquitous Device Compatibility|
|Excellent Fit both Indoors and Outdoors||Environment||Great Fit and Performance Indoors
Outdoor Use-Cases Often Impractical
WiFi has undoubtedly proven itself as the leading wireless standard in the enterprise network. Yet, as communication requirements evolve, we see a growing number of business-critical use cases emerging that rely on pervasive coverage and seamless mobility for users or devices with a higher degree of reliability. Private cellular meets these emerging requirements – deployed as a WiFi alternative or as an overlay network operating alongside WiFi as a hybrid solution – to achieve the most seamless and frictionless user experience possible for critical applications and devices.
We are a one-stop network-as-a-service provider, addressing the complete private cellular network lifecycle.
Through this four-stage approach, we can help you leverage the inherent benefits of MPC through performance and reliability, to achieve business requirements today.
