Institutions of higher learning benefit by being able to provide dedicated cellular wireless connectivity across their campuses in administrative buildings, student housing and open spaces equally as well as in lectures halls and classrooms. Private 4G LTE and 5G wireless networks provide available and reliable cellular connectivity services under the organization’s full operational control, affording their students greater educational outcomes as well as safety and security across the campus. Through the delivery of branded mobile smartphone applications on high throughput, low latency private networks, institutions can drive value with their greater student populations. With the adoption of private cellular network technology on campus, undergraduate and post graduate study opportunities can be enabled through the research of algorithms, techniques, systems and standards that can be utilized to optimize performance of 4G, 5G and future networks.
Smart manufacturing is another enterprise ripe to take advantage of the ultra high bandwidth, ultra low latency and massive machine interconnection of 4G LTE and 5G private networks. The need for automation in the manufacturing process to enable significant efficiencies in production, quality control, safety and materials movement may leverage the high bandwidth and low latency of private cellular networks. Wireless networks simplify and accelerate the deployment of robotics and IoT sensors on the assembly line allowing remote control and the leveraging of AI to detect defects enabling manufacturing optimization from anywhere. Systems for communications across the work force in a time sensitive manufacturing operation may take advantage of the high quality of service provided by private cellular networks for real time voice, video and messaging.
The mining of coal, minerals, oil and natural gas production play an important part in economies world-wide. Modernization of the workplace is critical in these potentially rough and remote environments and smart mining is utilizing private cellular networks for the digital connectivity needed to optimize all aspects of the operations, including productivity, safety, accountability and environmental performance. The integration of autonomous vehicles and automated technologies supports more competitive operations and enables ultra-deep and remote mines to operate more effectively and safely. Wirelessly connected drones provide real-time aerial footage of mining sites for maintenance, monitoring and mapping, which improves safety and increases efficiency and cost savings. The collection of data from workers wearing monitoring devices will provide on-demand access to critical information regarding mining operations, including equipment status reports and air quality conditions, driving smart ventilation control. The shift towards the private cellular network connected smart mine with the integration of new sensor systems will capture data about all aspects of mining, allowing operators to predict and avoid failures, and eliminate costly downtime.
Smart retail is poised to reap the rewards of leveraging the potential of 4G LTE and 5G private networks. Retailers may utilize AI in crunching in-store analytics to spot trends early or make predictions on merchandise, to provide personal digital signage, or to identify VIP customers when they enter the store through facial recognition and provide customizable merchandise. The benefits to customers in smart retail locations may be access to hyper-personalized recommendations and promotions, bypassing line of the checkout process, accessing enriched product information through virtual or augmented reality experiences or interacting with smart displays or mirrors. Leveraging the new connectivity capabilities of private cellular wireless networks will enable retailers to design a personalized customer experience to maximize their effectiveness in the competitive retail market.
