As the demand for data continues to increase, so does the need to access it quickly and securely. To revolutionize business critical operations, utilities are looking to optimize with a private LTE (PLTE) broadband network that can make all the difference.
For utilities considering the journey along a digital transformation of grid communication technology (specifically legacy communication systems to PLTE) – many may encounter challenges in reaching their goals. Full scale private LTE deployments can cost hundreds of millions, take years to implement and are easily derailed by disconnects between the business and IT. Often, transformations are highly disruptive to the ‘status quo’ of both internal operations and external customers expectations. By taking a distributed hybrid hosted core approach to the transition, utilities are learning that the journey is manageable and can deliver the incremental value and results along the way with lower risk.
Having a distributed hybrid hosted core the private LTE broadband solution provides the following advantages:
- No expensive OnPrem LTE-core to buy
- Security and Reliability Focus
- Controlled Network Access
- Maintenance Free
- Cloud-based Operations & Management
With the FCC focusing on spectrum in 900Mhz and 3.65G, it will allow for shared/private wireless private broadband aggregation. Allowing you to deploy a data network with both the capacity and range required for grid modernization.
