Many companies and organisations are investigating NPNs for their Internet of Things (IoT) networks or to ensure localised control of vital services as they migrate to what is often referred to as Industry 4.0. Automation of industry is increasing productivity and NPNs can provide connectivity into all corners of the organisation’s operations, giving management teams accurate and up to date information at all times.
Providing good in-building mobile service from outdoors is often fraught with problems in older buildings with brick interior walls that block coverage, and even modern constructions due to the use of coated (low-emissivity) glass windows, which degrades radio waves entering the building.
NPNs give organisations control over the quality of their own connectivity although it could be beneficial to have support from a third party supplier or Mobile Network Operator (MNO) to help configure, optimise and to operationally manage the NPN ensuring the organisation’s Service Level Agreement (SLA) is achieved at all times.
A Non Public Network can be isolated from external networks and reside behind corporate firewalls. In house security protocols can also be tailored for the private mobile network, aligning with internal IT security policy and usage.
