The real power of 5G

The virtual Total Telecom Congress 2020 brought together global business leaders to discuss the key strategic and technological issues facing the communications industry as it positions itself to transform consumer and industrial markets.

Dr Derek Long, Head of Telecoms and Mobile, took to the virtual stage on the morning of day one to share his steps to success in private 5G network deployment.

Deploying private cellular networks in industrial settings has become easier with 5G standards, which overcome historical barriers to deliver high reliability, low latency and good coverage.

In the past, these challenges were met by overprovisioning capacity and transmit power.

However, the need for efficient network utilisation and cost control meant this was not a viable long-term solution.

In this presentation, Derek describes the critical success factors in building private cellular networks and the different approaches that can be taken to enable resilient and flexible industrial solutions.
