Enterprise & IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) Mobile networks: The Networks They Are a Changin'
Dean Bubley, Disruptive Analysis
Can businesses program, or even own, their own cellular infrastructure?
Many aspects are making it much easier, with shared and unlicensed spectrum for private LTE, small cells, virtualised networks, programmable eSIMs and more numbering/identity options.
Some industries have their own unique wireless needs, either across the wide area (eg utilities) or on major sites (oil & gas, airports etc) that are not easily-addressed by traditional telcos.
Can they build and/or operate their own networks? Is this the ultimate “developer” play?
