Key Takeaways

  • Neutral hosts allow public LTE subscribers to connect and strengthen their signal from a private network cell. This is similar to how certain cellular networks are available in other countries.
  • Neutral hosts allow customers and staff to increase their network coverage in areas where commercial towers might be limited.
  • A single cell in a private LTE environment can serve guest devices and internal communications without the need for complex configuration.
  • The neutral host puts public devices on a separate band of the network, meaning enterprise devices are always segmented and secure.
