With the launch of 5G networks around the world, more and more customers are set to enjoy the unprecedented mobile speeds and ultra-low latency they bring. However, 5G doesn’t only promise to transform the way individuals work and connect; some of the most innovative use cases for the next generation of communications will come from enterprises leveraging 5G mobile private networks.
Mobile private networks play a vital role in society, connecting critical industries, such as farming, energy, logistics and public utilities. And soon, Rakuten Mobile’s software-centric, Open RAN-based mobile technology stack will begin powering 5G mobile private networks of the future.
