The power of private 5G networks: Advantages for various industries


The advent of 5G brings a boundless opportunity for networking innovation. Among these groundbreaking advancements is the emergence of private 5G networks. Assuring to offer low latency, high bandwidth, and expansive connectivity, private 5G networks have quickly gained traction as a promising solution for diverse industrial applications.


What is private 5G? What makes it different from public 5G?


Private 5G is a wireless technology that brings cellular connectivity to private networks. It caters specifically to organizations seeking strong security and improved latency by providing dedicated enterprise access under their control. A private 5G network is built specifically for a company, with infrastructure owned by the company and frequencies for which the company has obtained an authorization license. This network is directly managed by the company and its technical suppliers.

On the other hand, public 5G is a shared network provided by mobile network operators to their subscribers. Due to the vast number of users accessing the network within its coverage range, the speed and latency of public 5G can fluctuate accordingly.

However, the technological foundation for both private and public 5G is essentially the same, consisting of a multitude of network technologies and massive MIMO (Multiple Input and Multiple Output) networks. The key distinction, however, lies in their applications and use cases.

A notable point is that industrial 5G is not a variation of a technology initially designed for consumers, as was the case with previous generations of mobile networks (1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G). In fact, it is the opposite. From the beginning, the 5G standard has been designed with professional use cases in mind, including those of the industry.


What are the benefits of a private 5G network for enterprises?

"5G promises a world where everything is connected, aware and responsive, where you do not

have to worry about connectivity in the first place."


Wireless technology plays a crucial role in reshaping connectivity in modern industries, with some questioning the need for a private network when Wi-Fi or 4G networks are readily available. However, the distinct advantages of private 5G become apparent when considering specific enterprise requirements.

Imagine a large manufacturing site that relies on reliable and uninterrupted connectivity within its shop floor. In such cases, a private network becomes essential to ensure smooth operations and communication without any disruptions. By embracing private 5G networks, organizations position themselves at the forefront of technological innovation, prepared to seize the opportunities of a connected and responsive future.

Businesses are not only drawn by the promises of tomorrow but also by the tangible benefits they can reap today with 5G.


Some of the results:

  • Low latency:

    Latency, the time taken for a signal to travel from source to receiver and back, is significantly reduced with the private 5G network. This ensures seamless real-time video communication and live video streaming without any noticeable delays. 

  • High Speed:

    Private 5G allows businesses to transfer large amounts of data with ease. Designed to ensure secure and efficient communication even while in motion, 5G ensures that no packets are lost, even when operating at high speeds.

  • Lower power consumption:

    Similarly, private 5G supports lower power applications, contributing to reduced energy consumption during data transfer. 5G antennas are energy-efficient, promoting sustainable connectivity solutions.

  • High cybersecurity:

    Private 5G networks, being independently owned and operated, can implement robust encryption and authentication policies. This level of control ensures enhanced protection against external cyber threats, safeguarding critical data and communications.


"Private 5G holds great promise for the professional world. Industrialists we've spoken to are already envisioning its potential impact on their trades. The vast range of applications it offers is still largely unexplored, but the possibilities are incredibly exciting."

What industries benefit from a private 5G network, and what are the real-world use case scenarios for its implementation?


  • Manufacturing

Unlike public networks, which may encounter issues in factory environments, private 5G provides a more stable and secure data exchange between connected devices. This is particularly crucial in the context of Industry 4.0, where smart devices and connected equipment are extensively used. The high-speed connectivity of private 5G enhances user experience, allowing businesses to maximize the potential of their devices. 

Additionally, private 5G enables reliable connectivity for remote assistance and video communication for technicians, despite the location they are based on. For instance, it enhances the experience of aR (Assisted Reality) and wearable devices, enabling hands-free remote collaboration for technicians. By providing real-time voice and video with low latency, private 5G ensures seamless connectivity even in challenging Wi-Fi deployment areas. This empowers technicians to perform complex tasks efficiently even in remote settings.


  • Energy sector

The_power_of_private_5g_networks_Advantages_for_various_industries (1)One of the key benefits of deploying a private 5G network in the energy sector is its ability to offer connectivity even in hard-to-reach areas.

Imagine a large wind farm with multiple wind turbines spread across a vast area. Each wind turbine is equipped with numerous sensors to monitor various parameters such as wind speed, direction, temperature, and equipment health. These sensors continuously collect real-time data to ensure the efficient and safe operation of the wind turbines.

In such a scenario, instant access to the data collected by these sensors is crucial for the wind farm operator. A private 5G network can provide a highly reliable and dedicated communication channel for wind turbines and their sensors. Unlike conventional networks that may experience latency or connectivity issues, private 5G ensures seamless data transfer from any number of sensors in real-time.

 By leveraging the benefits of private 5G, the operator can efficiently manage the wind farm's operations, optimize energy production, and ensure the turbines are functioning at their peak performance.


  • Healthcare

For secure and efficient communication, a cellular option like 5G proves to be a wise choice. One significant application of 5G in healthcare is telemedicine, enabling the real-time transmission of critical data. Video conferencing solutions can facilitate seamless communication between doctors and patients, making remote consultations convenient and accessible.

Likewise, 5G has facilitated some medical procedures such as "remote proctoring." For instance, an extraordinary experiment was conducted at CHU de Rennes in partnership with AMA, b<>com, Nokia, Orange, and Philips. A surgical cardiac procedure was performed on a simulated patient in France and followed remotely by a KOL from Greece. The use of 5G allowed for effective communication between the remote experts and the surgeon, resulting in better data streaming and improved surgical outcomes.
