CBRS the next big thing
The growing number of connected devices drives new requirements for various industries that traditional public cellular networks cannot address. Utilities, manufacturing,mining, agriculture and other verticals are exploring private network solutions so that they can deploy devices in secure and on-premises environments where public mobile networks are either unavailable or not desired. When it comes to wireless networking, enterprises are always looking for ways to provide secure coverage with the seamless ability to roam from public to private networks on campuses, in warehouses, mines, farms and other corporate environments indoors and out.
Many organizations address these escalating requirements by turning to private LTE and private 5G, dedicated wireless networks separate from the wide-area public macro network.
Cosensity is at the forefront of this new technology, bringing decades of cellular leadership to offer you comprehensive LTE and 5G enablement that extends from the modules themselves to connectivity, platforms and integration, and certification expertise. With Telit’s private LTE or 5G modules, you will find the right features at the right price with no technical or business compromise for your private cellular IOT innovation.
- Benefits of CBRS:
- Cybersecurity: A private network can be a best-of-both-worlds solution, providing all the cellular benefits while enabling you to keep all your corporate data behind your firewall. Wi-Fi is more susceptible to security breaches and hacking attacks, whereas LTE and particularly 5G are generally considered more secure at the enterprise level than Wi-Fi.
- Latency management: For industrial processes in which automation network latency times are critical, private allows your IT team to specify latencies to infrastructure providers. 5G latencies can reach down to single-digit milliseconds where time-sensitive networks (TSNs) operate.
- Legacy connectivity replacement: Cellular technology is considered more robust and scalable than Wi-Fi. This scalability makes it a superior wireless replacement for mission-critical use cases, like land mobile radio systems (LMRS) and public safety applications. Cellular networks are also ideal for fault-tolerant operations, such as in mining, rail and energy distribution
- Expanded bandwidth: Most of the private LTE and 5G spectrum is broader than many current wireless technologies. For example, in the United States, the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) has 150 MHz bandwidth in the 3.5 GHz band.
