Australia’s thirst for faster and more reliable networks knows no boundaries. As local network service providers rush to deploy 5G for the nation, policymakers around the world have been busy providing incentives for system integrators and solution providers to innovate and invest in solutions, especially within the enterprise space. Closer to home, the Australian Communications & Media Authority (ACMA) has been busy facilitating a variety of licence types in the 26 GHz and 28 GHz bands (mmWave) for the deployment of 5G technology. While the concept of a private mobile network isn’t particularly new, the possibilities of a private 5G network have been gaining huge interest all over the world.
But deploying a private 5G network isn’t just a case of connecting cells and towers to a local area network. Robert Le Busque will share real-world examples on the lessons learned in the private 5G deployment for the Associated British Ports at the Port of Southampton, touching on the challenges and opportunities in deploying private industrial networks in Australia.
