“The Use of 5G Private Networks”

This webinar will present various case studies of how private 5G networks operate. The webinar will feature two panels, one which will focus on exploring the infrastructure changes that 5G will bring about when a firm needs to access lots of computing and storage at the edge of their cloud network or on-premises. It will discuss the role of infrastructure firms in providing key changes in 5G infrastructure. It will also consider how 5G private network infrastructure will improve when 5G standards support more industry-focused Internet of Things. Finally, the panel will consider how 5G private network infrastructure helps to bridge  Operational Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT).
