Get ready to unlock critical broadband networks for Industry 4.0

New business models are emerging for industries. From owning and operating their own networks, industries with critical communication needs are now procuring private networks and services that leverage service providers’ existing network assets and operations – without compromising required local control.

There is a global market trend to modernize existing legacy technologies in exchange for more scalable and capable solutions to fit business and mission critical communication needs. Therefore, service providers are well-positioned to grow their business by tapping new markets and leveraging their existing network assets and operations, while not steering too far from their core business.
