For many years, businesses spread over a wide geographical area such as factories and production facilities have been using terrestrial or wireless (wi-fi) network technologies for network connections. Especially considering the working conditions in the production facilities, the distance between the spaces, the management, maintenance and revision of these networks, and the commissioning and connection of new production areas to the network constitute an important item in the investment and operation budgets of the companies. With the implementation of LTE and 5G infrastructures, mobile communications become more secure, fast, low-latency and durable, MPN-Mobile Private Networks for businesses have become an alternative to traditional network infrastructures.
Technically, Private Mobile Networks are no different from public mobile networks currently provided by operators. In this structure, edge users, production machines, computers, IoT sensors use the mobile frequency spectrum and transmit the data to the internal networks of the enterprises via base stations. From here, they can securely transmit data to the cloud or to database and management systems at the center of the enterprise.
The most important difference between public and private mobile networks is that the enterprise has its own mobile frequency range, base stations, isolates this network from the public mobile network by performing all management and control of the network and can apply business-specific rules in this structure. Customized Mobile Networks in aviation and manufacturing sectors where critical business processes are important, in the transmission of data that needs to be constantly monitored with IoT sensors, in remote operation and management of robot arms, etc. It is very important.
Businesses can cooperate with operators that provide mobile communication services for the installation and operation of their networks. In this case, they can get rid of the operational and investment costs of the wired/wireless network infrastructures they currently manage by out-sourcing their administrative and operational processes such as network installation, operation and renewal. This allows businesses to focus more on their own business areas.
Considering the flexibility provided by mobile communication networks, businesses that can integrate Customized Mobile Networks with their own infrastructures will be able to adapt rapidly to changing conditions by keeping up with the digitalizing world. This shows that the use of Customized Mobile Network (MPN) will become widespread with the developing mobile technologies.
