Enterprise and industrial segments will continue to deploy private networks utilizing LTE and WiFi. Many of these networks will evolve to 5G and include edge computing to maximize overall throughput and minimize latency, which will be crucial for certain critical communications solutions such as industrial process automation.

Enterprise and industrial customers may choose a combination of communications and computing as a service from carriers or purchase infrastructure that is managed by a third-party entity. Examples of some recent carrier-supported private wireless deployments include the following:

• Verizon: The company recently partnered with U.K. port operator Associated British Ports (ABP) to provide the Port of Southampton with a private 5G wireless network. The port of Southampton is a part of a large supply chain, accounting for £40 billion in U.K. exports yearly. Southampton also serves as the country’s largest port for cars (nearly 900,000/year) and cruise liners. The network runs on the Nokia Digital Automation Cloud, which offers edge computing capabilities.

• AT&T: The company established a public/private partnership with Chicago’s MxD (Manufacturing x Digital), has created a 5G private network with funding from the Department of Defense and other private members. The wireless network is meant to help companies learn how to improve their manufacturing operations through 5G networks. The MxD private network uses only two radios, one with mmWave 5G and the other with sub-6 5G that connects to AT&T’s central network core.

Carrier-supported private LTE and 5G networks will consist of Virtualized Network Solutions, Dedicated/Non-Virtualized Network Solutions, and Hybrid Network Solutions with an anticipated global market opportunity of $12.6, $9.2B, and $17.1B respectively.

Private wireless deployments will differ greatly based on whether they conform to a carrier-owned/controlled model or to one based on enterprise/industrial ownership and control. In the case of the former, the carrier will be required to provision and administer apps and/or allow access by third parties, such as Over-the-Top (OTT) service providers. In the case of the latter, the enterprise or industrial customer will manage their own apps, or more likely, hire their own third-party team to manage on their behalf.

While some business customers will vie for virtualized instances of carrier infrastructure/platforms, other enterprise, industrial, and government customers will go with private networks within their own control and/or facilities. In other words, some of these private networks are going to be in competition with carrier communication services as the likes of Nokia are actually competing with their own customers (e.g. carriers are customers of infrastructure providers like Nokia, Ericsson, etc.).

While many of these changes in public versus private networks currently impact the radio access network and edge computing alone (e.g. businesses still need connectivity with carriers for WAN communications), it sets the stage for potential evolution towards a more distributed service realization environment that may involve a more dispersed core network that is not completely owned/controlled by the legacy carriers.

With private network subscription set to overtake public by 2030, carriers are highly advised to spend most of their efforts on solutions for business customers (e.g. enterprise, industrial, and government clients). This is advised even if it means losing some of their communications business due to private wireless deployment in which the business customer owns and operates a portion of their own internal network.
