“ Private mobile networks are a red-hot topic and the technology is taking a meaningful foothold in the market for wireless connectivity ,” said Richard Webb , Director of Infrastructure at CCS Insight . “ There are a growing number of deployment options available to enterprises in different industries and sizes , fuelling growth . In addition to many new customers adopting their first private networks , more companies are rolling out networks throughout multiple sites following successful trials . Our research shows there are an average of 2.1 private mobile networks per customer , excluding larger nationwide deployments .”
