Enterprise IT teams should ask these questions as they evaluate and get ready to adopt private LTE/5G wireless networks in their existing environments.

  1. Do you have indoor and outdoor rated access points as part of your portfolio that are compatible with private spectrum options, such as CBRS in the United States?

  2. Do you allow for SIM card authentication on cellular wireless capable devices match with existing enterprise network policies?

  3. Do you allow for cellular wireless traffic stay locally within the enterprise network and integrate with existing IP subnets / VLANs?

  4. Do you support multiple apps each with their own throughput, latency, jitter, error rate requirements on the same private cellular wireless link?

  5. Can you integrate with existing QoS policies within the enterprise network for multiple traffic / application types?

  6. Do you support automated RF management of private cellular radio configuration and private spectrum frequency assignments within the same network?

  7. Do you support deployment of your mobile core (Evolved Packet Core for LTE and 5G core for 5G) as VM, in private cloud, in public cloud and on-premises, and as part of a single enterprise-wide private mobile network?

  8. Do you support LTE and 5G core within the same software architecture with similar management and operations workflows?

  9. How does your mobile core for LTE/5G wireless scale to support large number of access points in redundant configuration?

  10. Do you offer zero-touch installation and centralized management for your product components that are installed on-premises in the enterprise?
