Private Network Leaders Mastering Vertical Integration

Although the private network market is one that requires strong partnerships and interoperability between solutions, Kaleido’s research shows that the best products are frequently those which can bring much of the ecosystem under one roof, presenting a strong single solution to network users.

“Many private network customers are starting to emerge from pilot deployments and rolling out productive private networks” remarked research author James Moar. “The best solutions need to be those that can address specialised needs while scaling effectively for both macro enterprise and SME requirements.”

The leadership scoring analysis for 45 different roaming vendors is summarised in the Private Networks Vendor Hub report, along with an assessment of company strengths and opportunities.
