Private telecom networks are a relatively new concept that started gaining widespread attention with the advent of Private LTE networks. Unlike public telecommunications networks, private networks are built specifically for use by an organization.

These organizations can include utilities, factories or police departments and corporate entities.

Only members of the organization will be able to use the private telecom network. The organization can decide on all aspects of the network like coverage, network performance, access and priority.

The development of the 5G telecom network is speeding up the adoption of private telecom networks. Industries are expected to increasingly adopt private telecom networks in special use cases.

Tech companies are expected to be one of the pioneer adopters of the new technology. Several companies apart from STL are already offering and experimenting with bringing private telecom networks and 5G-enabled private telecom networks.
