The G2 on 5G Podcast - Standalone Episode 3 (Ep 48) Nokia Private Networking 101 – April 22nd 2021
In this episode of The G2 on 5G, Anshel and Will Cover:1. Target industries and applicationsManufacturing for machine-to-machine communication and process automation. Energy and utilities for grid management. Farming and ranching to improve crop and livestock yields through the application of "AgTech" methodologies. Broadly speaking, operational technology (OT) environments will benefit from the deployment of cellular infrastructure. Nearly 3/4 of these enterprise "non-carpeted" areas such as warehouses, manufacturing lines, and industrial control systems are not connected by Wi-Fi today.2. The co-existence of 4G, 5G, and Wi-FiEnterprises have a number of choices with respect to wireless connectivity. Wi-Fi enjoys a broad install base and supports the basic connectivity and application needs of knowledge workers cost-effectively. However, cellular private networking is poised to meet the more demanding needs of industrial applications. Today, 4G supports a majority of industrial use cases, and 5G with its improvements in throughput and lower latency is poised to unlock new ones.3. General deployment considerationsShould businesses own its private networking infrastructure on-premise or consider SaaS/cloudified or managed service offerings? There are many pros and cons to owning versus a subscription including the balance sheet treatment of capital versus operational expenses as well as the need for immediate upside capacity and access to the latest feature releases. The ultimate decision should be made based on enterprise needs and IT staffing levels.4. Nokia’s value add and market positionIt is Moor Insights & Strategy’s opinion that there are only a handful of providers that can offer an end-to-end solution. We believe that Nokia is well-positioned to deliver a robust private networking platform based on its broad portfolio, deep experience, and overall leadership in private networking relative to its traditional peers, as highlighted by more than 260 4G and 5G customer deployments to date.
