New LTE End-to-End Solution for Private Networks Meets Security, Latency Requirements for IoT and Industry 4.0

Wednesday, May 16, 2018
ADLINK will join MECSware at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to demonstrate the new Private LTE technology, which provides end-to-end, wireless connectivity for private networks. Representatives of the companies will showcase the Private LTE solution in Hall 2, Stand 2G3, during the world's largest exhibition for the mobile industry.

An industrial use case, the demonstration features a low-latency video uplink transmission from an Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) to a control center over an LTE connection. On-site measurements of the transmission’s latency will underscore the technology’s high efficiency.

“Private LTE complements mobile network technology with operational flexibility, low latency and strong privacy,” said Torsten Musiol, founder and CEO of MECSware in Velbert, Germany. “MECSware’s Mobile Edge Cloud Server, based on ADLINK’s robust hardware, enables reliable wireless connectivity for next-generation industrial networks. Industry 4.0 networks will generate huge productivity gains through real- time processing in use cases such as control of autonomous vehicles, power grids, warehousing, logistics and factory automation.”

ADLINK’s SETO-1000 Extreme Outdoor Server combined with MECSware software comprise the Mobile Edge Cloud Server for Private LTE. All combined, the end-to-end Private LTE solution is designed to work within Industry 4.0 standards.

Private LTE will primarily address industrial and agro-industrial users (enterprises), which have a need for wireless connectivity on their premises. The system, however, can also be used for other use cases where connectivity is missing or less developed.

“Once the powerful results of the technology become evident, we anticipate a lot of interest in this groundbreaking solution,” said Roy Wan, managing director of ADLINK’s EMEA region.
