Finnish Operator Teams with Ericsson on Private LTE Pilot
Thursday, August 08, 2019 | Comments

Finnish telecommunications operator Elisa teamed with Ericsson to pilot a private cellular network for the operator and its customers.

The pilot will allow Elisa’s enterprise customers to gain control of users, devices and traffic on the local private networks, providing greater security and an increased capacity for high demand. The pilot tests were conducted at Elisa’s facilities in the first of half of 2019 using a prepackaged solution that included a core, router and radio dot system for indoor coverage.

”Private networks are expected to spread throughout different industries,” said Eetu Prieur, director of mobile solutions at Elisa. “Forerunner companies have already identified the benefits of private networks: guaranteed capacity, reliability and security.”

Ericsson has deployed private networks at several industrial sites including utility companies, mines, ports, airports and factories. The modernization of existing communications technologies, as well as new use cases, are generating strong productivity improvements and operational efficiencies for industries.

Private networks, which enable local control by an enterprise, can be tailored to an organization’s specific applications and business platforms to create sustainable growth through service provider’s existing assets. As private networks are closed, only specifically defined devices and connections can access them, securing higher levels of performance and information security valuable to industries.
