Private LTE/5G networks: hybrid deployment models
31 October 2023 | Research
Most private LTE/5G network deployments to date have been fully dedicated networks, but these can be prohibitively expensive for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Hybrid networks can offer a cheaper solution, and can support roaming, but can come with trade-offs such as reduced security and higher latency, which service providers must understand to ensure they can match the customer with the right deployment model.
