Why Wait for 5G? How Private LTE Solves Enterprise Connectivity Challenges, Now

Why Wait for 5G? How Private LTE Solves Enterprise Connectivity Challenges, Now

For enterprise applications, particularly in industrial environments, traditional connectivity methods such as CAT cabling and WiFi are not always suitable.

WiFi was responsible for 72% of data breaches in UK businesses last year and cannot provide coverage for large sites. And while 5G is ready to transform IoT connectivity forever, it will be years before it can really serve enterprise needs.

So how can enterprise applications best achieve the low latency, high-security networks they need today, before 5G becomes widespread?

Private LTE networking provides many of the benefits of 5G, right now. In addition to providing incredible performance, private LTE almost eliminates exposure to data breaches, enables granular network control, and can greatly reduce costs compared to WiFi.

Join industry experts Alistair Elliott, Bob Emmerson, and Brian Anderson for a discussion of how private LTE can transform enterprises by saving time and money, providing higher security, reduced latency, and network slicing ahead of 5G.

5 Reasons why you should attend:

  • Don’t wait for 5G, find out how private LTE can solve your enterprise connectivity challenges, today
  • Discover how private LTE beats WiFi on cost, speed, latency, and network control
  • Keep your devices safe from increasing cyber threats with device quarantine, private networking, and network slicing
