Private 5G, Public 5G and Wi-Fi: what’s the difference?

Promising higher security, stronger digital connectivity and better mobility than existing services such as Wi-Fi and wired networks – plus greater control and more specific reach than public networks – it’s easy to see why private 5G is creating such a hype across many industries. Some businesses have even started the process of rolling out this game-changing digital connectivity to deliver significant ROI – in fact, the unique benefits of private 5G could unlock £530bn of value in manufacturing by 2030. But is the hype warranted?

In short, yes. Heralded as the true enabler of IoT, AI and Industry 4.0, private 5G provides:

  • Unified connectivity
  • High multi-user capabilities
  • Specific coverage and capacity
  • One dedicated network
  • High, predictable performance
  • Improved security and mobility
  • Enhanced bandwidths
  • Faster transmission of greater amounts of data
  • Coverage precisely where needed (inside and outside)

IoT: 7 billion connected devices

Over the years, connectivity has evolved from just providing access to the internet to powering complex infrastructures within businesses – such as smart manufacturing and agritech – who are now relying on the IoT technology to implement Industry 4.0 efficiently. But with this growing number of devices and data comes a need for new and better network performance levels. And this is where existing network solutions just can’t keep up with the demand.

Also, when you deploy your own private 5G network, you can gain full control of your own connectivity, allowing your business to handle critical communications, adopt cutting-edge technologies and accelerate your digital transformation.
