Mobile Private Network Service
Mobile private networks offer a dedicated network service with a secure connection and without any delays, which can be connected with a Telco edge solution. This service can be used to position equipment in hospitals, for video analysis in surveillance alarms, and for group communication in various industries. These networks can also be scaled up and down depending on the needs and budget of the business.
Network Slicing Service
The second service, first-generation network slicing, provides a lane next to the highway for data traffic that is completely dedicated to a business's specific needs without interference from other data traffic users. This solution is suitable for businesses with high demands on mobility and security and for those who want to secure their 5G connection without building network infrastructure themselves.
