Telecommunications companies are quickly developing new 5G solutions that will introduce new capabilities to your organization with lightning-fast speed and more capacity to scale your technology initiatives.
That includes a new 5G network solution for commercial customers’ indoor or outdoor facilities thanks to Verizon’s launch of its new On Site 5G solution, which the company announced Thursday.
The 5G network solution designed for large enterprise and public sector customers brings the company’s 5G Ultra Wideband capabilities to facilities where high-speed, high-capacity, low-latency connectivity is needed, and the facility doesn’t need to be within a public 5G Ultra Wideband coverage area, the company said Thursday.
According to Verizon, On Site 5G is a non-standalone private network that combines 5G Ultra Wideband small cells with the LTE packet core and radios of On Site LTE, allowing On Site LTE customers to easily upgrade to On Site 5G.
“On Site 5G leverages the best of 5G Ultra Wideband and 4G LTE capabilities as different operational environments require, and also maintains interconnection to the organization’s LAN, SD WAN and enterprise applications,” the company said in a press release. “While all cellular traffic stays on-premises, On Site 5G allows authorized remote user access to enterprise applications. Controlled authorized user access and device management and the inherent privacy of on-premises networking help keep the network secure.”
With this new solution, customers will be able to take advantage of emerging technologies like Massive Iot, artificial intelligence, machine learning, real-time analytics and augmented and virtual reality.
“In all, Verizon’s dedicated On Site private networks offer customers the consistent, predictable performance, security, mobility, flexibility — and now, all the capabilities of 5G — to improve operational efficiency and accelerate digital transformation,” the company said.
Verizon says On Site 5G brings new capabilities that current enterprise network technologies like Wi-Fi can’t, particularly when it comes to critical processes and new-generation tech like artificial intelligence, virtual reality, Massive IoT and others.
With Wi-Fi only, organizations are often faced with coverage gaps, connection issues, data congestion, inflexible processes and inconsistent quality. Those can all lead to costly downtime, Verizon said in a solution brief.
Facilities like manufacturing plants, healthcare centers, distribution centers, mines and ports need secure, reliable, custom and private connectivity to help them become more efficient, but also help them tap into emerging technologies.
