Rapid expansion; it’s a problem that many companies would like to have, but when your original communications infrastructure is unable to keep up with your plans for growth, it can raise a number of challenges.

For large construction projects to run smoothly, good communication and collaboration is a top priority. A leading construction firm operating in multiple locations required their contractors to be easily accessible on site and to have the ability to share high-definition drawings and plans with colleagues and stakeholders quickly and over a secure connection.
Airport: Private Network delivers enhanced team collaboration and reliable coverage at one of the world’s busiest airports.
Increased passenger demand is leading to a significant growth in air travel, and airports all over the world are dealing with record numbers of aircraft and people. At one of the world’s busiest airports, an aircraft takes off and lands every 45 seconds. In this time-sensitive environment where seconds matter, communication is vital. The world's busiest two-runway airport needed a network that would facilitate collaboration between its teams and guarantee no communication failures to ensure the smooth running of this challenging environment.
Smart meters are poised to revolutionise the energy sector, but these meters need reliable connectivity to transmit their data to the utility companies. In Sweden, utility companies wanted to roll out smart meters on a massive scale but inconsistent wireless connectivity was a significant stumbling block. They required a long-range, low-cost network that would also deliver the deep indoors coverage they needed to access hard-to-reach locations and solve the last-mile problem.
For utility companies, digital transformation has a unique complexity and urgency. With dispersed infrastructures, including network elements that may be decades or even centuries old, it's challenging for utilities to achieve business objectives and meet regulatory requirements, which in the UK include a net-zero carbon emission deadline of 2050. And as regulated entities, utilities don't set their own prices, so driving efficiencies is the only way to realising a profitable business.
