Celona @ WLAN Professionals Conference 2022

Celona 5G LANs at WLPC 2022

Summary on our hands on training class for Celona 5G LANs at the 2022 WLAN Professionals Conference, including a highlight on the Celona network we have built to cover the entire event floor. Andrew von Nagy and Jeremy "JR" Rollinson are the hosts for this video, in addition to running the show for our deep dive class.

Part 1/9 - Celona Hands-on Lab at WLPC 2022

We are starting our 9-part series with a demo of the Celona 5G LAN solution – as a four access point (AP) private cellular network, deployed at the WLPC 2022 event. Celona's Jeremy "JR" Rollinson and Kevin Brasher showcase remote assist and other applications, while Andrew von Nagy runs through the RF design that was completed prior to the network install. Let the fun begin.

Part 2/9 - Celona Hands-on Lab at WLPC 2022

In this second part of our 9-part series, Celona's Andrew von Nagy explains how you can approach RF design for private LTE / 5G wireless on private cellular spectrum options such as CBRS in the United States: coverage characteristics, differences between Wi-Fi and Cellular, rate-vs-range expectations, among others. You might need a second cup of coffee for this one.

Part 3/9 - Celona Hands-on Lab at WLPC 2022

Third chapter of our 9-part series highlights a very popular use case for private cellular: very large area outdoor coverage. Celona's Andrew von Nagy explains how you can utilize Google Network Planner to easily predict coverage patterns for your Celona outdoor access points (APs) with different antenna, mounting and deployment options. An enterprise wireless network has never reached this far.

Part 4/9 - Celona Hands-on Lab at WLPC 2022

We are almost halfway there in our our 9-part series, and things get more exciting with each chapter. This time, Celona's Andrew von Nagy and Jeremy “JR” Rollinson walk you through the initial provisioning and configuration steps for a Celona 5G LAN. You be the judge if all is really “turn-key”.  

Part 5/9 - Celona Hands-on Lab at WLPC 2022

In this chapter of our 9-part series, Celona's Jeremy "JR" Rollinson showcases how you can run through a list of performance tests to validate the operation of a private cellular network. Get your devices ready.

Part 6/9 - Celona Hands-on Lab at WLPC 2022

In this chapter, we discuss how.. what you already have (your enterprise network) and what you are deploying now (a Celona 5G LAN).. can speak the same language. Celona's Andrew von Nagy and Jeremy “JR” Rollinson walk you and our students through different configuration options to enable the level of simplicity enterprise IT and OT teams demand. Sometimes it takes a bit of innovation for cellular wireless to understand what a L2/3 enterprise network really wants.

Part 7/9 - Celona Hands-on Lab at WLPC 2022

Chapter 7 of our 9-part series reveals the secret sauce behind Celona’s highly differentiated 5G LAN solution: patented Celona MicroSlicing™ technology. Celona's Andrew von Nagy and Jeremy "JR" Rollinson work with the students in the class to tie everything between device groups, applications, network segments, private cellular configuration and more with a series of MicroSlicing policies. Apps are the heroes of our story after all.  

Part 8/9 - Celona Hands-on Lab at WLPC 2022

Now that you have your apps on the Celona 5G LAN protected, in this chapter of our 9-part series, you will learn how to monitor application specific Key Performance Indicators (KPI) on private LTE/5G. Celona's Andrew von Nagy and Jeremy "JR" Rollinson explain how a private cellular network can be monitored to satisfy app performance requirements. Favorite topic for any wireless network engineer.

Part 9/9 - Celona Panel Discussion at WLPC 2022

You have made it: reached the last chapter of our 9-part series. It is the first and only (at least that we know of) hands-on lab on private LTE / 5G cellular wireless networks.. publicly accessible to all. Thank you for making it this far.
