RESEARCH PAPER: MFA – The Alliance For Private Networks

By Will Townsend, Patrick Moorhead - August 31, 2023

Private cellular networking (PCN) is poised to disrupt enterprise operations and accelerate digital transformation, especially in operational technology (OT) environments that have been unconnected or comprise a mishmash of connectivity modalities that do not scale. There are many positive PCN considerations, including improved capacity and coverage, greater control of on-premises data security, enhanced network reliability, availability and performance from a throughput and latency standpoint — all leading to a compelling return on investment. The latter is proving impactful in smart manufacturing, transportation and logistics, and other industrial use cases that integrate IoT sensors supported by PCN’s massive device support.
