Private LTE Market: Introduction
The demand for enabling the transition from disparate disconnected networks to smart connected systems for offering enhanced modes of customer interaction and service delivery has led to the introduction of private LTE networks.
Private LTE network is a private network (a network restricted to one enterprise) intended for efficiently connecting people/things of that respective enterprise and securing data by eliminating the connection with a core network of public mobile operators. A private LTE network, furthermore, eradicates the restrictions associated with a conventional network system, such as the Ethernet or Wi-Fi, by supporting both human and machine communication on a single network.
Private LTE network, still in its development stage, is comparatively niche and hence, hasn’t witnessed much penetration in the past 4 years. However, with the advent of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things), its deployment is expected to witness high growth opportunities during the forecast period.
Private LTE Market: Market Dynamics
Factors, such as high speed, high capacity, high security, low latency, consistence performance, longer range and interoperability associated with private LTE networks, compliment the demands required to attain IIoT. This, as a result, is expected to be the primary driver in the private LTE market. Besides these advantages associated with private LTE network, increasing adoption of isolated networks is also being witnessed, which is expected to be a contributing factor for further penetration of private LTE. Furthermore, increasing adoption of smartphones globally is also expected to push market expansion in a positive direction during the forecast period. In addition to this, governmental initiatives for offering enhanced public safety are also expected to propel the demand for private LTE networks globally.
However, issues, such as complexity associated with the implementation of private LTE networks and constraints in terms of the requirement for authorized license to deploy private LTE network is also expected to hinder the growth of private LTE networks.
