Based on its recent analysis of the global 5G network infrastructure market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes the Finland-based Wirepas Ltd with the 2021 Global New Product Innovation Award for its novel Wirepas Private 5G solution. Operating on a dedicated global spectrum, it will be the world’s first non-cellular 5G connectivity product.
“The Wirepas Private 5G fulfills several enterprise requirements, such as high scalability and performance,” said Troy M. Morley, Senior Industry Analyst. “Its limited infrastructure and easy installation make it up to 90 percent less expensive than competing solutions. Furthermore, its minimal maintenance and centralized, self-healing features make the network extremely reliable. This reliability improves with every device added to the network.”
Wirepas’s solution can connect devices at a higher density and lower operational costs than other solutions in the market. It can connect up to 1,000 devices in a cubic meter with bi-directional communications and, due to the solution’s ease of use, enterprises can eliminate the need for networking experts.
Wirepas Private 5G allows enterprises to connect millions of devices even in the toughest, most demanding environments. Without SIM cards, subscriptions, or heavy infrastructure, it enables any enterprise to set up its own self-managing on-premise network in a private environment. It works without any middlemen and delivers all the benefits of 5G.
“Wirepas Private 5G can handle large-scale, high-density applications without single points of failure at a tenth of the normal cost and with significantly lower power consumption than cellular alternatives,” noted Morley. “Its reliability and performance, combined with affordable installation and operation, will make the Wirepas Private 5G solution a valuable enterprise IoT networking solution.”
