  3. 3. SNS Telecom Forecast, Oct 2019 ©3G4G • Expected to reach $4.7 Billion in annual spending by the end of 2020, private LTE and 5G networks are increasingly becoming the preferred approach to deliver wireless connectivity for critical communications, industrial IoT, enterprise & campus environments, and public venues. The market will further grow at a CAGR of 19% between 2020 and 2023, eventually accounting for nearly $8 Billion by the end of 2023 (link)
  4. 4. Analyst Forecasts ©3G4G • “Private LTE and 5G use by the oil and gas, mining, utilities, transportation, government (including public safety) and manufacturing industries will significantly increase due to the availability of new spectrum. The global private LTE/5G equipment and services market is expected to triple by 2025 to about $10 billion” – Mobile Experts, Feb 2020 (link) • “The demand for Private Campus Networks offers operators an opportunity for value generation – we estimate the global market size to be €60-70bn by 2025.” – Arthur D. Little, Feb 2019 (link) • “By 2025, the private Long-Term Evolution (LTE) market comprising of healthcare, transport and logistics, manufacturing, smart venues, smart cities, and oil and gas will be worth US$16.3 billion with the vertical of transport and logistics being the largest among those analyzed, representing 26.3% of the total market.” – ABI Research, Feb 2019 (link) • “A recent study from Harbor Research indicated that the private LTE network market could reach $17B (USD) by 2022.” – Qualcomm, May 2017 (link)

  29. 29. 3GPP Releases Timeline ©3G4G Private Networks Non-Public Networks (NPN)
  30. 30. Release-16: Non-Public Network (NPN) ©3G4G 3GPP TS 22.261: Service requirements for the 5G system; Stage 1 (Release 16) describes Non-public networks in section 6.25 as: • Non-public networks are intended for the sole use of a private entity such as an enterprise, and may be deployed in a variety of configurations, utilizing both virtual and physical elements. • Specifically, they may be deployed as: • completely standalone networks, • they may be hosted by a PLMN, • or they may be offered as a slice of a PLMN. • Continued…
  31. 31. Release-16: Non-Public Network (NPN) ©3G4G In any of these deployment options, it is expected that: • Unauthorized UEs, those that are not associated with the enterprise, will not attempt to access the non-public network, which could result in resources being used to reject that UE and thereby not be available for the UEs of the enterprise. • UEs of the enterprise will not attempt to access a network they are not authorized to access. For example, some enterprise UEs may be restricted to only access the non-public network of the enterprise, even if PLMN coverage is available in the same geographic area. Other enterprise UEs may be able to access both a non-public network and a PLMN where specifically allowed.
  32. 32. Example of NPN from 3GPP TR 23.734 ©3G4G
  33. 33. Types of 5G NPNs ©3G4G Standalone NPN (SNPN) Public Network Integrated NPN (PNI-NPN) • SNPN is operated by an NPN operator, not relying on network functionality provided by a SP / MNO • UE can have subscription for one or more NPNs • List of NPN IDs is available in SIB • Access to public network possible as NPN can be considered as an untrusted network • Access to NPN via public network is also possible • PNI-NPN is an NPN deployed with the support of a SP / MNO • Different approaches are possible including dedicated spectrum, slice, etc. • Closed Access Group (CAG) concept is used to protect from other UEs from accessing the NPN and wasting resources • UE subscription contains CAG IDs • CAG ID broadcast in SIB
  34. 34. 5G LAN-type service ©3G4G Based on description in 3GPP TS 22.261: • The 5GS shall support 5G LAN-type service in a shared RAN configuration. • The 5GS shall support 5G LAN-type service over a wide area mobile network. • The 5G network shall support service continuity for 5G LAN-type service, i.e. the private communication between UEs shall not be interrupted when one or more UEs of the private communication move within the same network that provides the 5G LAN-type service. • The 5GS shall support use of unlicensed as well as licensed spectrum for 5G LAN-type services. • The 5GS shall enable the network operator to provide the same 5G LAN-type service to any 5G UE, regardless of whether it is connected via public base stations, indoor small base stations connected via fixed access, or via relay UEs connected to either of these two types of base stations.
  35. 35. 5G LAN-virtual network (5G LAN-VN) ©3G4G • A UE shall be able to select a 5G LAN-VN, that the UE is a member of, for private communications. • 5G LAN-VNs can have member UEs numbering between a few to tens of thousands. • The 5G LAN-VN shall support member UEs that are subscribed to different PLMNs, e.g. a 5G LAN-VN may span multiple countries and have member UEs that have a subscription to a PLMN in their home country. • The 5GS shall support on-demand establishment of UE to UE, multicast, and broadcast private communication between members UEs of the same 5G LAN-VN. Multiple types of data communication shall be supported, at least IP and Ethernet. • The 5G network shall ensure that only member UEs of the same 5G LAN-VN are able to establish or maintain private communications among each other using 5G LAN-type service. • The 5GS shall allow member UEs of a 5G LAN-VN to join an authorized multicast session over that 5G LAN-VN. • The 5G system shall be able to restrict private communications within a 5G LAN-VN based on UE’s location (i.e. when the UE moves out of the area it can no longer communicate on the 5G LAN-VN). • The 5G network shall enable member UEs of a 5G LAN-VN to use multicast/broadcast over a 5G LAN-type service to communicate with required latency (e.g. 180ms). • The 5G system shall support a mechanism to provide consistent QoE to all the member UEs of the same 5G LAN-VN. • The 5G system shall support routing based on a private addressing scheme within the 5G LAN-VN.
