The "I"s Have It: Private Network Innovation, Integration, Insight & Improvement

By Lisa Sandoval 11 min read

Are you looking to upgrade to a next generation private network but don’t know where to start? Finding the network modernization process arduous and time-consuming? Feeling like you need to work with too many vendors and your support "go to" contact list is spiraling out of control? You’re not alone. As networks modernize and grow—getting smarter and at the same time, more complex—finding a partner who can provide end-to-end network connectivity will prove indispensable 


Imagine having all your network needs met by a single trusted partner who can deliver comprehensive, end-to-end network connectivity solutions that address all your unique challenges. This is where Ceragon stands out from the crowd. We offer a unique combination of experience & expertise, advanced wireless technology, in-house research and development (R&D) and a proprietary chipset, comprehensive systems integration capabilities, and full network managed services and support. To us, it's not just about selling equipment or “boxes”; it's about providing a holistic approach to network modernization and digital transformation – taking accountability and driving your organization and your network far into the future. 


Digital transformation is no longer a futuristic buzzword; it's now a requirement to remain competitive and effective in an increasingly complex operating landscape. Network administrators, IT directors, and Operational Technology (OT) leadership are often under pressure to improve operational efficiencies, reduce costs, reach more subscribers with higher capacity, and stay competitive. This can only be achieved through a comprehensive network modernization process. By focusing on digital transformation, Ceragon helps organizations streamline their operations, enhance their capabilities, and prepare for the future. 


Modernizing your network can lead to significant improvements in performance, adapting your legacy infrastructure, big data transfer, system interoperability, network visibility, security, and reliability. It allows for better scalability, enabling your network to grow alongside your application requirements. This is crucial for keeping up with today's fast-paced changes in the digital age. Ceragon's expertise ensures that your network supports your needs today but is also future proof. 


Consider the case of the City of Cincinnati. The City’s administrators began noticing problems with their aging network infrastructure and its ability to support their public safety land mobile radio (LMR) systems. As a mission-critical application, downtime is simply not an option. Reliability and continuous operation are paramount to ensure that city public safety personnel can depend on the system at all times. This requires rigorous planning, testing, constant monitoring, and prompt issue resolution to maintain optimal performance. Ceragon introduced a proposal that offered the capacity, reliability, security, and flexibility City officials needed for their LMR systems today, but also accounted for capacity spikes they would need far into the future as digital transformation continues to take hold. Teaming up with Ceragon was an obvious choice. 


Unlike many other equipment manufacturers, Ceragon stands out with its unique in-house R&D and proprietary chipset. This enables us to develop cutting-edge, future-proof solutions tailored to meet the specific needs of each industry, and even each customer. This innovative approach ensures that your network is equipped with the latest technology that is the right fit for your needs, giving you a competitive advantage. 


Ceragon's proprietary chipset is a revolutionary advancement. It offers unparalleled performance and reliability, setting a new standard of control in the industry. This innovation allows for faster data transfer rates and improved network stability, crucial for businesses that rely on real-time data. 


Ceragon's commitment to innovation means we are always looking ahead, not only on a macro level, but for each customer’s specific use case. Our R&D team is constantly working on new solutions that will keep your network at the forefront of your industry. This forward-thinking approach ensures that your network is always ready for the next big thing – such as big data producers like IoT, advanced sensors, AI, automation, and multi-megapixel video surveillance – to name just a few. 


One of the biggest challenges in network modernization is integrating new technology with existing infrastructure. Because we will be honest – not every operator or organization can afford to simply rip-and-replace an entire network and build a brand new, private network from scratch.  

We get it. This is why we offer full systems integration support services, ensuring a seamless transition and integration of technologies that not only work in unison, but perform impeccably.  


Ceragon provides end-to-end network solutions that cover every aspect of your network design and lifecycle. From initial mapping to design and network planning to first time-right rollout and ongoing monitoring and maintenance, we can cover as much or as little as you need. It’s this holistic approach that eliminates the need for multiple contacts and operating systems, simplifying the process and ensuring a cohesive solution. 


When designing private networks, Ceragon’s expertise is vast. Most customers give Ceragon the vote of confidence as an industry leader in point to point wireless backhaul and high-capacity transport solutions, but some may not know that our communications network expertise reaches much further than backhaul.  

Our experts are currently planning and designing end-to-end network connectivity utilizing carefully chosen and ratified technology partners – industry leaders providing private LTE, private 5G, private mesh networks, secure public wi-fi, and integrated IoT connectivity 


Integrating modern technology into existing infrastructure can be complex. Ceragon's expertise ensures that your current investments are protected while optimizing your network for future growth.  

Have some of our competition’s equipment in your network but ready for a system upgrade? Not a problem – multi-vendor, multi-technology networks are our specialty. This inclusive approach not only protects your existing investments but also enhances the overall performance of your network over the long term. We understand that network modernization is a delicate balance between innovation and stability, and that profitability also rides on system longevity and future proof capabilities. 


Ceragon's unique network digital twin (NDT) system – a real-time virtual representation of your physical network infrastructure – provides unparalleled insights into your network's functionality and performance. This advanced tool allows you to simulate different scenarios, identify never-before-seen potential issues, consolidate information into a single source of truth, and optimize your network in real-time. It's like having a crystal ball for your network.  


The benefits of a network digital twin are immense. An NDT allows for proactive maintenance, reducing downtime and improving reliability. It also provides valuable data that can be used to optimize performance and plan for future growth. Ceragon's unique network digital twin offering is a testament to our commitment to innovation, in-house development, and excellence. 

Imagine being able to identify a potential network bottleneck before it becomes a problem. With Ceragon's NDT, this – among so many other crucial insights – becomes possible. This proactive approach to network management can increase productivity while saving businesses significant time and money.
