Azure private MEC – November 2023 Webinar Series

This post has been republished via RSS; it originally appeared at: New blog articles in Microsoft Community Hub.

Operational technology (OT) devices require enterprises to choose from a variety of access methods and physical network devices for network capabilities. Industries are embracing private 5G networks to harness the benefits of enhanced security, reliable performance, customization, coverage, scalability, edge computing capabilities, improved efficiency, and future-proofing their investments. 

Azure private MEC pairs the power of private 5G with Microsoft’s rich portfolio of cloud services and partner solutions to unlock new opportunities for modern enterprises. Private 5G offers several advantages over traditional Wi-Fi networks for Industry 4.0 applications. Here are some reasons why private 5G is better suited for Industry 4.0:

  • Reliability and Performance: Private 5G networks provide more reliable and consistent performance compared to Wi-Fi, especially in industrial settings with high-density environments and interference.
  • Low Latency: 5G networks offer significantly lower latency compared to Wi-Fi. In Industry 4.0, where real-time data processing and immediate response are crucial, low latency is essential for tasks such as industrial automation, robotics, and remote operations.
  • Massive Device Connectivity: 5G networks support massive machine-type communications (mMTC), allowing for a vast number of connected devices.
  • Enhanced Security: Private 5G networks offer better security compared to Wi-Fi. With 5G, data can be encrypted from end to end, ensuring confidentiality and integrity during data transmission.  
  • Network Slicing: 5G introduces the concept of network slicing, which allows the creation of virtual, isolated networks within a single physical infrastructure.
  • Improved Coverage and Mobility: 5G networks offer broader coverage compared to Wi-Fi, making them suitable for large industrial facilities and outdoor environments.
  • Scalability: Private 5G networks are designed to be highly scalable, accommodating the evolving demands of Industry 4.0.
