Where to next with private LTE?

The organisations that can generate the greatest benefit from private LTE deployments are those that have use cases that are not readily supported by the public telco networks. Primarily, private LTE provides more assurance over coverage, capacity and control.

These advantages are nowhere more evident than in the mining sector. What began around five years ago with a just couple of deployments has since blossomed into an estimated 25 mine sites nationally.

However, to take advantage of private LTE, organisations need to ensure infrastructure and equipment is cost-effective, fast to deploy and simple to operate. So bearing this in mind, what are the next ‘big things’ in the private mobile network space?

In this important online session on 12 November, part of the Comms Connect Virtual Conference Series, you’ll hear from the following speakers:

  • Rodney Nebe, IT Senior Network Engineer, Gold Fields
  • Simon Lardner, CEO, Challenge Networks
  • Rui Chen, Senior Lead Architect, CommTel Network Solutions
  • Randy Richmond, Product Manager, Product Management, Zetron
     

The Comms Connect Virtual Conference Series will have sessions running each Thursday in November between 10:00 am and midday (AEST). Each session will feature a series of online presentations from local and international experts, followed by an interactive Q&A panel session.

The full schedule of sessions is as follows:

5 November: Cybersecurity and our industry — lagging behind others?

12 November: Private TE — ensuring there is coverage, capacity and control for the private LTE network of the future

19 November: Location-based services — practical integration tips

26 November: Next-generation land mobile radio systems — how does the industry keep radio relevant?

Full details of all sessions can be found here, while registration details are available here.
