Global Enterprise Networking is Hard, But it Doesn't Have to Be

By Ken Briodagh March 10, 2022

It’s overwhelming to think about the networking needs of a truly global Enterprise, and it can seem to be unavoidable to operate just as massive a global infrastructure and management operation.

With next-generation Enterprise 5G technology, that is no longer necessarily true. Thanks to the inherent speed, broad bandwidth, low latency, and improved security, enterprises can simplify their networking operations and reduce or eliminate redundant and onerous connectivity and operational options like traditional wi-fi, bluetooth, hard-wires, on-premise servers and many others.

In the manufacturing sectors, where Industry 4.0 and Industrial IoT have been gaining traction for years, enterprises are leveraging private LTE/5G networks that can replace wi-fi QoS, TCO and other connectivity options, filling gaps and removing major inefficiencies while covering large areas. The best Enterprise 5G providers in these implementations avoid metal infrastructure disturbances and other huge environmental challenges and provide coverage and connectivity for people, machinery, and sensors across wide areas and in secure, fully-owned, IT-managed networks.

As a specific example, chemical factories require outdoor coverage across large areas, in addition to robust indoor coverage. Moreover, these sites operate in remote rural locations with limited connectivity options, but require sophisticated sensor networks, advanced machinery, complicated processes, and a combination of IT and OT needs. Many of these chemical enterprises have seen that they can leverage enterprise 5G solutions to deploy a complete private network that is fully owned and managed by the IT team with a superior Quality of Service and TCO.

And you can bring this same power, flexibility and simplicity into your enterprise operations and bring your company into the leading edge of the IoT ahead of your competitors.
