What is Private 5G?
Imagine owning an exclusive motorway, meticulously designed to fit the unique needs of your business, keeping it safe, swift, and efficient. That’s what a private 5G network can offer your company – a super digital motorway, entirely dedicated to you.
Private 5G networks are specifically designed for your business, providing a bespoke solution that ensures peak performance, top-tier security, and the ability to adapt to your unique requirements. It’s the polar opposite of the public 5G motorway, where businesses must share lanes with everyone.
The size and scope of these private 5G networks can be tailored to your needs. The range of coverage is powered by the radio unit, influenced by the frequency bands used, and adjusted to meet your specific use case.
Why choose Private 5G?
Superior Security: As an isolated network, Private 5G offers enhanced security against potential breaches, safeguarding sensitive industrial data.

While manufacturing stands out as a prominent beneficiary of Private 5G advancements, its applicability stretches across various sectors. Check our our datasheet to read about the vast array of use cases.
5G, 4G and WiFi
5G vs 4G
As we transition from 4G to 5G, we’re not just talking about a simple speed boost. The differences between these two generations of mobile networks are profound.
Speed and Bandwidth: 5G operates at a higher frequency than 4G, allowing for faster data download and upload speeds. While 4G might offer speeds of 10 Mbps to 100 Mbps, 5G promises speeds from 50 Mbps to over 10 Gbps, making real-time data processing and analytics possible like never before.
Latency: 5G significantly reduces latency, bringing it down to as low as 1 millisecond. This ensures instantaneous response, vital for applications like augmented reality, virtual reality, and real-time gaming.
Capacity: 5G can support a million devices per square kilometre, a tenfold increase from what 4G offers. This makes 5G ideal for densely populated urban areas and IoT-heavy industries.
Network Efficiency: 5G networks utilise network slicing to allocate bandwidth dynamically based on demand, ensuring efficient use of network resources.
Reliability: With enhanced signal processing techniques, 5G ensures a more reliable connection, vital for critical applications like remote surgeries or autonomous driving.
In essence, while 4G brought us the world of high-speed mobile internet, 5G takes us into an era of ultra-reliable, low-latency communications, propelling industries and consumers into the future.
Private 5G vs WiFi
While WiFi has been the de-facto standard for indoor wireless connectivity for years, Private 5G is emerging as a compelling addition, especially for industries with specific requirements.
Range and Coverage: WiFi networks typically have a limited range, requiring multiple access points for larger areas. In contrast, Private 5G can cover vast industrial areas, both indoor and outdoor, with fewer infrastructure demands.
Reliability: WiFi can suffer from interference and connectivity drops. Private 5G networks offer a more stable and reliable connection, ensuring that critical industrial processes run uninterrupted.
Capacity: While WiFi can handle a decent number of devices, it pales in comparison to the massive device density support offered by 5G, making it ideal for IoT-heavy environments.
Latency: 5G’s ultra-low latency outperforms WiFi, ensuring real-time data processing and instant device communication, essential for applications like autonomous robotics in manufacturing.
Security: With a dedicated infrastructure and advanced encryption, Private 5G networks offer enhanced security compared to WiFi, which can be vulnerable to various attacks.
Flexibility: Unlike the one-size-fits-all approach of WiFi, Private 5G networks can be tailored for specific industrial needs, ensuring optimal performance and efficiency.
WiFi remains a solid choice for general indoor connectivity, Private 5G provides a tailored, robust, and future-proof solution for industries poised for growth and innovation.
