Private Cellular Network Interoperability Took Center Stage at MWC 2022


Network vendors introducing expanded solutions that target flexible deployment were on center stage at MWC 2022. HPE introduced private 5G built on HPE 5G core stack with pre-integrated RAN solutions while other vendors (i.e., Cisco and ZTE) expanded their go-to-market strategy and introduced private networks–as-a-service. To industry experts, these announcements highlight that vendors and service providers recognize that reducing barriers to adoption, through interoperability and flexibility, will be the critical factor in driving private cellular network deployment over the next few years.

But one vendor has gone further than most to introduce greater interoperability and flexibility. Cisco’s private 5G service, using a service/pay-as-you-use model for network scalability, has introduced open RAN standards to reduce technical barriers to adoption and to unlock greater value for commercial private cellular network deployments.
