RKTPL Private LTE solution provides global mobile operators with a new revenue generating opportunity for private and public enterprises in search to replace their legacy, hardware-centric networks with cloud-native, easy to deploy and maintain 4G/LTE solution. RKTPL Private LTE network solution provides secure and reliable connectivity that covers every inch of operations, for humans and machines (IoT)/M2M , public safety and surveillance applications. Applicable for all industries, it provides the secure, reliable, flexible and cost-effective wireless connectivity that business- and mission-critical applications demand.
RKTPL Private LTE is a converged, service-aware, mission-critical end-to-end architecture to deliver autonomy, efficiency and staff safety. Components include:
- A complete end-to-end LTE wireless broadband network — radio access (i.e. vessel, rig, platform, indoor, M2M),
- Backhaul for transport, core, devices and management
The components leverage the most advanced radio access technologies, including small cells and macro cells for maximum coverage and capacity to reach remote systems, vessels and enable safety for personnel.
A common communications management system for the radio access network, backhaul and core along with lifecycle device management simplifies and reduces operating expenses while being interoperable with existing infrastructure.
The same solution can be deployed in both outdoor (fixed and in-vehicle) and indoor scenarios for specialized enterprise use cases:
- Manufacturing and warehouses: Private LTE puts a manufacturing site’s network on a different frequency so robotic and IoT devices don’t have to compete for coverage. With priority and pre-emption, Parallel Wireless solution also can provide a higher quality of service for particular devices or voice traffic.
- Oil and Gas: Wi-Fi isn’t a robust or secure option to meet network needs, yet provisioning wires in remote locations or moving boats and motherships is challenging. With Parallel Wireless Private LTE as the primary WAN and satellite as the backhaul, the oil and gas industries have a secure LTE network that can keep everything and everyone connected, regardless of location. SON will assist with plug-n-play configuration and on-going hands free optimization while providing seamless mobility between boats and other moving vehicles.
- Campuses: Colleges, financial institutes and hospitals
The deployments are flexible: the system can be deployed locally or integrated with any external networks.
The following services/features are provided by this solution:
- Enables a variety of voice options (VoLTE, VoWiFi)
- Interops with existing LMR/PMR or Wi-Fi networks
- PTT (Push To Talk) that can integrate with DMR voice channels
- Staff can now carry an LTE handset rather than a legacy DMR handset
- M2M for pump, vessel health monitoring, easy vessel management, team tracking, etc.
- Web browsing
- Localization of 4G calls
- Location based services
- LMR/PMR and LTE interoperability
- Multimedia streaming and sharing (video, picture, text)
- Dual-band handsets could allow roaming onto consumer LTE networks
- The solution will provide flexibility and elastic network:
- In case of link failure to the cellular operator, the LTE circle will remain and provides all the above services locally
- In case of emergency (such as backhaul loss, team trapped, etc.) PTT is available
- Easily movable/portable above ground towers when blasting; easy to re-deploy

Private LTE networks are quickly emerging as a scalable and cost-effective solution for local connectivity for enterprises and small to medium-sized entities, as well as those incorporating IoT technology into their operations. Some more use cases that lend themselves to private LTE networks include:
- Manufacturing: Private LTE networks can be used to power wireless robotic devices without building out additional connectivity infrastructure. For example, a manufacturing site could put all machinery sensors on a dedicated private LTE network. Manufacturing organizations could also ensure environmental sensors and monitoring runs seamlessly without interruption from network congestion. Placing proprietary apps on private LTE networks keeps sensitive traffic and data on-site.
- Warehouses: Security and surveillance video cameras, autonomous forklifts, telemetry data, GPS and/or Bluetooth device tracking, and supply chain applications can all run on a private LTE network to ensure operations run smoothly.
- Mining: Between automated machinery, voice communications above and below ground, human machine interfaces (HMIs), predictive maintenance applications, mobile devices for field staff, and crew welfare applications, mining sites require a lot of bandwidth. Private LTE networks can help these remote outposts prioritize traffic to ensure operational efficiency and crew safety.
- Airports: Security is critical at airports. With private LTE networks, airports can run remote diagnostics and incident reporting apps, as well as IoT devices for aircraft data and analysis with a higher level of security. Other applications, such as digital signage, can also run on the private LTE network.
- Smart cities: Private LTE networks will be critical as smart cities evolve. They will help power applications such as digital signage, smart lighting control, and security/surveillance with integrated recognition software and video analytics without interference from traffic on public networks.
- Hospitals: Reliability is key for several critical communications applications at hospitals. With private LTE networks, hospitals can ensure critical care health monitoring apps run securely and without interference. With private LTE, digital management
apps, such as electronic health records, can ensure sensitive patient data is kept on-site.
Why Choose Private LTE?
Private LTE networks offer high performance, security and flexibility with minimal infrastructure build-out, which makes it an attractive option for enterprises and organizations seeking a cost-effective yet high-quality network option that will work with both current and emerging use cases.
The main benefits of a private LTE network are primarily:
- Performance: Private LTE networks offer high-quality, scalable performance in part because of the careful control it gives users over traffic. Compared to Wi-Fi, which uses unlicensed bands, the cellular network controls who joins the network to prevent interference from outside users or traffic. Users can also finely tune quality of service (QoS) rules for designated SIMs and devices on private LTE networks to ensure optimal traffic prioritization and control. As a result, private LTE networks are very effective for enterprises with complex needs, such as serving hundreds of users or devices, over a large coverage area. While Wi-Fi and public LTE might become congested in these scenarios, private LTE can keep important traffic flowing.
- Cost savings: The main source of cost savings from private LTE networks comes from infrastructure and installation costs. For example, where a Wi-Fi network may require several extenders and repeaters to cover a large area, a private LTE network might only require a single cell tower
for fewer access points. Usually, end users can also use existing cellular equipment and devices, such as smart phones, instead of investing in new technologies.This makes installing a private LTE network a cost-effective solution for remote areas where there is no existing infrastructure.
Private LTE is also a cost-effective solution for those that need to run high-bandwidth traffic within a tight budget.
Private LTE over CBRS band, for example, combined with fixed-rate plans makes high-bandwidth applications more affordable than when used on per-use public LTE.
- Security: End users can keep important, high-risk and proprietary information secure and on-site through the many layers of security that come with private LTE networks. For example, end users can enable two-factor authentication by requiring both SIM card and PIN verification to access the network.
- Flexibility: Private LTE networks are flexible, and they also enable flexibility. With dual SIM operations, equipped devices can move between public and private LTE networks for seamless coverage. Private LTE networks can also be used to set up an additional, secure network without
separate SSIDs or additional infrastructure.
