Private Enterprise Network

Government agencies and enterprises often have stringent critical communications requirements due to which private networks become a preferred choice for critical communication. STL Private Networks have the capabilities to unleash the potential for operational transformation, automation, and efficiency and create a secure business- and mission-critical communications environment

Our broad category of Private network solutions are: –

  • Private LTE Network: Enterprises are struggling to manage large amounts of data the cost of maintaining that data on Public Networks. This is the reason that most of enterprises are gradually shifting towards Private LTE Network. This network comprises of local cellular network that includes cell sites and core network servers. Private LTE can be optimized to handle traffic types with specific requirements. For example, real-time IoT applications can be guaranteed extremely low latency for immediate response.
  • Perimeter Security: Critical Infrastructure security and related applications are of high strategic importance for Defense services. STL brings in the most sophisticated and unique intrusion proof infrastructure, powered by fibre optic sensing capabilities. For developing these applications, we leverage our expertise in design engineering. Along with the developed state of art products, STL has developed one of India’s most advanced command and control centres with real time, application level granularity and responsiveness.
  • Digital Security: As the digital footprint grows exponentially, Enterprises and Government have become cautious of their operations due to increasing cyberattacks. This is the reason digital security has become very important for enterprises and government agencies. STL Digital Security include anti-virus software, web services, biometrics and secure personal devices.
  • IoT Systems: Every industry in the world now relies on data for business needs. IoT will expand and improve that data by connecting billions of devices capable of immediately sharing, receiving, and analysing massive amounts of it to better meet business needs and improve decision-making. STL IoT solutions to play a crucial role in providing enterprises with best informed decision making STL IoT solution is a mix of a product, software and services interconnected with our world class network connectivity

A private enterprise network is a type of network that allows organisations to place micro towers, edge routers,small cells, and other network infrasture on-site that can be controlled and managed by them locally, typically isolating it from the internet and other public network. As organisations need to manage large amounts of data internally private enterprise network helps overcome challenges of high latency, range limitations, network congestion, inablity to control & automate QoS, information security and cost of infrastructure. These networks usually run on shared spectrums for eg Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) ie 3.5 GHz shared access band and the global unlicensed 5 GHz band.

Private Enterprise Networks can run on :-

a) Licensed Spectrum - Carriers can license their spectrum to an end-user organization or third party, or they can build and operate a Private LTE network as a service.

b) Shared Spectrum - End-user organizations can operate Private LTE networks using spectrum that is lightly licensed but shared (Example: CBRS, 3.5 GHz)

c) Unlicensed Spectrum - End-user organizations or carriers can operate Private LTE networks in unlicensed spectrum, such as the UNII-3 band used for Wi-Fi (Example: MulteFire). Carriers also can use this spectrum with carrier aggregation to expand their bandwidth (Example: LTE-U, LAA).

Apart from enterprise networks other examples of private network include home networks, mission-critical infrastructure (eg electricity distribution grids,powerplants etc.) ,venue services (airports,stadiums,hospitals,ports etc.),industry 4.0, enterprise IoT, data centres and virtual private network (VPN).

As Private Enterprise Networks evolve they will be the key enabler for 5G and IoT adoption. In order to harness the potential of Private LTE and 5G we will need to develop new innovative ecosystems that will by collaborative community.

a) Target the Highest Value Customer Applications

b) Understand the Entire End-to-End Customer Experience:

c) Look for Non-Conflicting Business Models That Encourage Collaboration

d) Build Open Collaboration / Align Partner Behaviors

LTE or commonly known as long-term evolution is a global open interoperable standard for wireless high-speed cellular data and is the technology behind today's 4G cellular networks. LTE provides high-speed mobile broadband data, telephone services like VoLTE ie Voice over LTE, Multimedia video support, public safety functions such as secure database access, computer-aided design, mapping, remote management systems, and non-mission critical push to talk service. This standard is developed by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP).

An LTE network has four major components: Core Network (Often called the brain of the subsystem, it consists of gateways and servers that control access, quality of service, billing, and network policies), Radio Access Network (These are the cell sites/towers and consists of transceiver equipment eNodeB and antennas that provides wireless coverage to the device), backhaul network(It consists of fibre & microwave connections and it connects the radio access network to the core network), User Equipment (It consists of mobile devices, routers etc. and it helps connect directly to the radio access network).
Four major features of LTE are:

a) Exclusive Spectrum - Better spectrum allocation with the division between commercial and mission-critical services

b) High Speed - LTE networks are typically designed with three sectors on each site and each sector supports the same amount of data. Each sector usually supports 40Mbps of data.

c) Priority and Preemption - It allows the network operator to make sure that the most important traffic always gets allocated to the priority user even if the network gets busy.

d) Self Organising Networks (SON) - It allows the network to automatically self-heal itself during outages ie temporarily one cell site can compensate for the non-functional site avoiding a communication blackout. This allows the users in the sector to access the service but the throughput may vary because more users get added to the specific sector.
