Private LTE Networks

As the need for uninterrupted communications becomes more critical in industry, private 4G LTE networks are fast becoming the optimal solution. Where utility network coverage is not available, or bandwidth limits pose operational restraints, private LTE networks can be designed to meet any requirement.

CPS National can design, deploy and maintain the optimal LTE networks for public, commercial and industrial applications.

As a holistic communications provider, CPS National can incorporate other communications protocols including Land Mobile Radio (LMR) and Wireless LAN (WLAN) networks, backed by Data Centres, DC Power Plants and Uninterruptible Power Systems.

What is 4G LTE?

Also known simply as LTE, or “Long Term Evolution”, is a generational leap from its predecessor, 3G; however, is distinguishable from the common 4G utilised by public networks you would be familiar with on your phones today. Although much faster than 3G, LTE does not have the speeds associated with ‘real’ 4G.

This is where MIMO can play a role. MIMO stands for multiple-input and multiple-output and is a method for increasing the bandwidth of 4G LTE. Through the use of additional aerials, MIMO can increase the data points both sent and received, allowing LTE to approach the speeds and latency seen with the ‘real’ 4G.

Key Components of an LTE Network

In order to provide coverage, LTE Networks have fixed base station infrastructure utilising eNodeB functionality and known as transceivers, or small cells. As with most technical infrastructure, the design hinges on the final requirement, and small cells can have a radius range anywhere from 50 to 2,500m, and service up to 200 users.

Second, is what’s known as the Evolved Packet Core (EPC), and forms the basis of the network. Housed either in servers on-site, or in the cloud. Through network architecture and a managed gateway, the network can be both secured on-site, and connected to the outside web.
