Offering will enable businesses to deploy a private industrial grade dedicated 5G network capability within their premise.
Verizon Business has launched its international private 5G platform for global enterprises located in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.
Delivered in partnership with Nokia, the offering will enable businesses to deploy a private industrial grade dedicated 5G network capability within their premises.
In addition to ultra-low latency and increased speed, a key benefit of a private 5G network is the ability for businesses, particularly those with manufacturing, distribution and logistics facilities, to deploy a customised on-site mobile network, eliminating the need to transmit data through public networks.
Tami Erwin, CEO at Verizon Business said there’s never been a more critical time for mobility, broadband and cloud products, and services.
“Private 5G networks will be a transformative technology that will drive the new era of disruption and innovation for enterprises around the world,” he said.
A private 5G network is a self-contained network whose components all reside in a single facility, consisting of micro towers and small cells and connects to an organisation’s Local Area Network (LAN) and enterprise applications.
It will utilise Nokia’s Digital Automation Cloud, a private wireless network solution with automation enablers that will allow for application deployment through a web-based interface.
Verizon recently announced a 5G roaming service in South Korea and is a founding member of the 5G Future Forum, a group of global 5G leaders accelerating the delivery of 5G and interoperable MEC-enabled solutions.
The launch of private 5G will also enable Verizon Media to deliver its next-generation content creation, production and distribution technologies at scale and in real-time to global audiences for customers.
