Why do you need a private edge mobile network?

Real-time Mobility

Wif-Fi no longer meets many of today's mobility requirements due to interference with other networks and lack of handoff when roaming between APs. A private mobile network has dedicated managed spectrum and uses 3GPP standard APs that can span an entire enterprise facility or campus, meaning that your mobile devices experience more stable, continuous, low latency connectivity while freely moving around.

Deployment Simplicity

Working with legacy mobile networks is expensive and slow, requiring complex solutions and specialized knowledge and training. Alef's Private Mobile Network as a Service (PMNaaS) abstracts the complexities normally required for these kinds of networks allowing you to provision your private network faster.

Flexibility and Control

With a private mobile network you can introduce policies that are as specific as necessary. Set up the access that suits your enterprise and applications, & orchestrate your permissioning to give business critical apps preferential treatment — you can even control access on a user device level basis. A private mobile network fits into existing IT systems, delivering the traffic into your enterprise network according to your current policies.

Cost and Scalability

Near-prem mobile networks provide a real-time multimedia solution by giving you 50ms or better on demand. The spectral efficiency of a private mobile network is over 2 times that of WiFi and can handle exponentially more data and mobile devices without increasing network latency.

Privacy and Security

With a near-prem private mobile network, the technology that makes everything work is contained entirely behind your current firewall. Your data never touches public infrastructure. Each user device is connected to your network via SIM cards that allow the devices to connect only to the allocated spectrum of your private mobile network. This supports end-to-end encryption by isolating and segmenting traffic to different network segments. Simply integrate mobile network security with your existing enterprise networks quickly and easily.
