Private Networks

Private Networks

Historically the only way to improve connectivity was to work with mobile network operators or to deploy bespoke private networks. Now the requirements of many locations, buildings and businesses can now be better met through deployment of private networks.

Our Approach

We specialise in designing networks based on customers’ needs. This means that when a ‘smart’ location is required – whether that’s a smart building, smart stadium or smart marina – we analyse the needs of our customer, work out which applications will add value to the organisation, then design, build and fund the entire installation.

Sports Stadiums

Having invested in sports venues over the last decade, we have witnessed at first hand how the needs of venues have dramatically evolved . Being able to utilise one secure private network to provide a multitude of services will revolutionise how venues are run.  Out go expensive legacy PBX systems and in comes improved security and analysis analytics available in real time to identify and spot threats, together with the option to deploy private networks selectively around a venue by allocating dedicated bandwidth for throughputs.

Smart Buildings / Warehouses

As offices and warehouses change, having the ability to deploy a network layer that can be actively managed for each tenant will open new ways of creating revenues. Identifying a tenant’s needs and being able to allocate specific bandwidth that’s more secure than bespoke private networks and just as fast as mobile networks, will enable landlords to offer more flexible and attractive locations. Tenants will then be able to experiment with the best ways to run their organisations in a more cost effective way.

Benefits of
Private Networks

Reliable, Resilient and Fast – by using licenced mobile spectrum rather than unlicenced options like bespoke private networks, latency can be reduced which improves performance.  This allows applications such as AR/VR or automonous vehicles/robots to be deployed.

Security & Privacy – private networks allow the owner of the network to control who has access and when through SIM grade authentication – this improves security and quality of service.

Scalability – private networks allow organisations to add bandwidth and devices in a simple and effective way at a known marginal cost.  This enables organisations to scale their usage as needed.

Why Shared Access?

Founded in 2007, Shared Access has a long history of investing and developing infrastructure. We have built deep links to our mobile operator and landlord partners over that time period to ensure that we always deliver – and this is borne out with the quality of our partners.  In the venue space we have been trusted by strategically important organisations like Newcastle Airport, Dundrum Shopping Centre (the largest shopping centre in Ireland) and by Tottenham Hotspur as they built the greatest stadium in the world.

In good company
