Deploying a private cellular network can be a daunting task, especially when you may not have the outcomes clearly defined or understand the right technology and partners needed to be successful. Often, the challenge is just knowing where to start. Whether you are considering 5G or LTE, our goal is to paint a picture of the possible and provide practical tips for getting started with your own private network.

In this webinar, experts from Semtech and Amdocs will outline five steps to successfully plan a private network, including:

  • Clearly define your use case
  • Outline network requirements
  • Design your network
  • Choose the right equipment
  • Set up a proof of concept (POC)

We hope you’ll join us on July 12 at 11 a.m. PT/2 p.m. ET for an insightful and valuable discussion.
