Businesses are facing major challenges right now regarding 5G deployment

Due to the demand for industrial automation driven by IoT sensors and analytics, there is a strong appetite for businesses to deploy their own private cellular network without relying on incumbent network operators. This momentum has led governments to reserve frequencies for regional assignments by contrast to nationwide assignments (for instance: in the US CBRS - Citizen Broadband Radio Spectrum, 150MHz at 3.5GHz; Germany: 100MHz in 3.7-3.8GHz; France: 40MHz in 2575-2615MHz).

But there are factors that are hindering the adoption of the technology. The complexity of cellular network implementation and communication services deployments for enterprises that have no prior experience of cellular network operations is one of them. There is also a lack of cellular solutions able to both compete with Wi-Fi-based solutions for on-premises deployments and able to deliver on performances and QoE from the perspectives of costs and simplicity.

b<>com *Wireless Edge Factory* offers 4 main assets to businesses:

  • A reduced TCO
  • Very high scalability from very compact hardware footprint to more significant ones depending on the customer’s context
  • The ability to orchestrate network services and Edge applications altogether in the same cloud-native environment, leading to outstanding performances
  • The ability to deploy configurations that are not (and won’t be) supported in public networks while still preserving security and data privacy

Business case

Let’s take the use case originally planned for the NABSHOW: some ruggedized video modules designed for newsgathering are transmitting high-quality video streams on a wireless network to a remote video transceiver ultimately, a distribution platform. The solution is full software and offers on-demand deployment of network slices with configurable QoS parameters, allowing the prioritization of those video streams when the network gets congested. Additionally, the light and easy integration of b<>com connectivity solution and of applications at the edge leads to superior performances especially with regards to latencies.
