Pod Private LTE Interconnect

Traditional connectivity options such as CAT cabling and WiFi were not designed for the demanding connected environments of Industry 4.0. Whilst the benefits of 5G still seem a long way off, there is a way to securely, reliably, and cost-effectively connect all assets in an industrial environment now, whilst paving the way for 5G in the future.

Pod Group provides a completely managed Private LTE solution, enabling seamless roaming between the public and private network. Users benefit from Pod Group’s global agreements with operators in over 185 countries, centrally managed via our modular platform, Pod IoT Suite. A variety of different scenarios can be covered including both cloud-hosted and on-premises options. Additional security is provided through our monitoring and threat detection solution, Pod Protect


  • Security: Private LTE network completely contained within the enterprise, secure behind the corporate firewall and separate from the public internet (including public operator channels)
  • Network slicing: Similar to 5G, private LTE enables the network to be “sliced” into packet gateways for different device groups, managed separately for varying bandwidth, security and QoS requirements.
  • Scalability: Seamless orchestration of global mobile networks managed through one centralized platform.
  • Control: Additional packet gateways can be deployed and managed on the fly allowing an enterprise to set different requirements in terms of bandwidth speed, Quality of service (QoS) and data path control.
  • Future Proofing: Private LTE is the perfect stepping stone to 5G, giving connected enterprises a competitive advantage today whilst preparing their networks for the future.
