private LTE | ˈprīvit el tē ē
Carrier-grade wireless technology to build a cellular service inside the building. Allows building managers to connect people, things, and data based on business logic.
To power the smart workplace for the millennial, millennial-minded, and following generation.
There’s a generational shift, inside your building walls
This new generation will do business differently
And they already are. If you’re not giving this to them, other buildings surely will. Better to lead than lag. Millennials will soon make up half of the world’s workforce. With dramatic effects on the work place-and-space. Such as…
Millennials want to work wherever, whenever
…and untethered, too. Gone will be the 9-to-5 work days. They want to work on their own terms, time, and place. Open and shared work spaces, to handle a few people this moment, but many the next. And, workers need to come and go as they please- using their smart devices. For the modern worker, always-on, always-available connectivity is a must.
Millennials want to work fast. Blazing.
Speed matters. Why? For fast uploads and downloads. To stream videos without any lag. To create and edit huge, multimedia files, spreadsheets, and documents. And, less businesses want servers and apps in the office. They want them in the cloud, whether AWS, Google, or Salesforce. With no down times. At all.
A look at the modern employee
…compared with the old.
|BEFORE||NOW & LATER|
|Works 9-5||Works whenever|
|Works in a corporate office||Works wherever|
|Uses company equipment||Uses their own devices|
|Hours in a chair||Only concerned about results|
|Climbs the corporate ladder||Blazes their own path|
|Worked defined for them||Creates their own work|
|Hoards info||Shares everything|
|Has no voice||Leads with their voice|
|Relies on email||Savvy collaborators|
|Learn what you’re told||Learn what you need|
|Corporate learning & teaching||Self taught|
“Yes, this is where I want to spend my most productive hours.”
Will the modern worker (and their company) say that when checking out your building or complex? If not, you’re handing them over to the other guy.
Connectivity for your tenants. IoT for your business.
Enable your smart building, using sensors
Bridge the physical with the digital. Sensors in all the right locations to collect data on how people are behaving in your building.
So you can…
Know how your building is performing
Your connected devices will tell the story:
Know where energy is wasted
Lower operating expenses
Reduce carbon emissions
Identify inefficient systems, processes, and configurations, and…
Calculate all this to get an ROI for any changes you’ll make
Attract more high-paying tenants
…by creating the ‘smart’ work place,
For example, companies in bio-finance, doing work in augmented reality and artificial intelligence? They’re certainly looking for the ‘smart’ work place:
|Temperature||Warm or cool spaces, using an app*. With preferences learned and applied over time. Automatically.|
|Lighting||Light levels adjusting in open spaces and meeting rooms. For late nights or wee hours.|
|Rooms||Find and book meeting rooms right now. Including ones that are "booked" but unused.|
|Desks||Not enough desks for everybody? No problem, use ‘hot desks’ to contract and expand, dynamically. And, find and book them based on what’s available.|
|Work Requests||Submit work requests or flag issues to workplace teams, when and where they arise.|
*BTW… this ain’t new. There’s an app for all this, giving you’re tenants the power to configure their workplace, real-time.
Are you ready to bring the network everyone’s used to on the outside, to the inside?
Connectivity in the building, not so good
Cellular performs poorly inside the building
Buildings rely on cellular service from outside towers. But construction materials make it hard for signals to pass through walls and windows.
Wireless is everywhere. So are the people using it. With their data-heavy apps jamming the airwaves, causing dropped calls, slower service, and frustrated occupants.
Economics & Politics
Demand outweighs supply- of cell towers, that is. And getting permissions to erect a new tower? Good luck with that. Takes years and bucks. Loads.
WiFi also works poorly inside the building
…because it creates interference. Several wireless networks, in the same building, compete for signals on the same frequency. Kitchen microwaves and the like don’t help either. All these reduce signal strength while causing WiFi noise. Each business uses WiFi to help themselves but, this adds no value to the building.
Build a Private LTE for your building
A quick history
Cellular phones, a paradigm shift that brought connectivity to people, not buildings. The U.S. government removed restrictions, making The Internet open for business.
Netscape was born.
For the early wave of mobile phones, cellular worked great- on the outside. But not so good in the building. As devices became smarter and ubiquitous, WiFi was born to connect everything inside the walls.
Apple launched the iPhone.
Now: Private LTE
WiFi has its costs. Can’t roam the building, data travels slowly, the network is not secure. Welcome Private LTE, an in-building, cellular network. It’s fast and secure, allowing occupants to easily connect through their mobile devices.
Your business redefined.
LTE powers billions of smartphones, tablets, and IoT devices
Every device, whether in your pocket, on your lap, on your desk, or installed throughout the buildings… are data-voracious-and-hungry. They require speed, must be secure, while talking to each other. LTE technology is all that.
LTE is available, for your building or campus
Businesses were stuck with WiFi solutions and technology. LTE was available, but only as licensed spectrum. This costs billions of dollars, which only the carriers could afford. Until now. The FCC has made ’shared spectrum’ available, known as CBRS (Citizen Band Radio Spectrum). Ericsson, Nokia, Corning, Arris, Ruckus and others are making ‘miniature cell towers’ (a.k.a. access points or small cells) the size of smoke detectors- to build cellular networks indoors.
No more will your tenants experience…
Calls that get dropped, sound garbled, or don’t get though. Video conferences that are herky-jerky, or files uploading and downloading slowly…taking longer than workers have time for. Nor, having the right connectivity throughout the building to deploy IoT.
