Next-Level Digital Transformation: Wipro and Cisco's Managed Private 5G Empowers Businesses

By Greg Tavarez

Gone are the days when work was confined to office cubicles and 9-to-5 schedules. With high-speed internet connectivity and mobile devices, professionals now have the freedom to work from anywhere in the world. And the rise of remote work and flexible arrangements is further accelerated by 5G and its relationship with other advanced technologies.

Underpinning this transformation is the digital revolution sweeping through IT and OT infrastructures. Digital transformation refers to the integration of digital technologies into all aspects of business operations, leading to fundamental changes in how organizations operate and deliver value to their customers. In relation to IT and OT, this integration represents the convergence of traditional IT systems with operational technology that improves efficiency, productivity and innovation.

5G networks, or more specifically, private 5G networks are integral to the changing nature of work and digital transformation. Private 5G networks offer dedicated and localized wireless infrastructure, catering to the increasing demands of organizations seeking improved efficiency, security, and customization.

These networks provide enhanced performance and reliability, ensuring low latency and high bandwidth for mission-critical applications. They also offer improved security and privacy, granting organizations greater control over their network infrastructure and enabling compliance with data protection regulations.

Additionally, they enhance collaboration and campus connectivity, fostering seamless communication and facilitating the implementation of emerging technologies like IoT and AI. By incorporating private 5G networks into their digital transformation strategies, businesses can stay agile, secure and innovative.

Wipro and Cisco look to help enterprise customers achieve better business outcomes through the seamless integration of private 5G with their existing LAN/WAN/cloud infrastructure with a managed private 5G-as-a-Service solution.

Seamlessly integrating private 5G with the organization's infrastructure enables efficient data flow, centralized management, consistent security measures and scalability to accommodate growth. A managed private 5G-as-a-Service solution offers simplified implementation, reduced costs, enhanced scalability, improved security and compliance and access to advanced technologies, among others.

“Private 5G is already enabling connectivity for a wide range of use cases in factories, supply chains, university and enterprise campuses, entertainment venues, hospitals, and more,” said Masum Mir, senior vice president and general manager, provider mobility, Cisco. “We’ve created a simplified and intuitive private 5G solution with Wipro, leveraging the advantages of 5G, IoT, Edge and Wi-Fi6 technologies to improve customer outcomes.”

Leveraging Cisco's mobile core technology and comprehensive IoT portfolio, such as IoT sensors, gateways and device management software, the innovative as-a-service offering relieves enterprise customers of upfront capital expenditure investments and accelerates technology adoption. Wipro and Cisco assume the technical, operational and commercial risks associated with implementing the solution.

The solution is engineered and operated by Wipro and empowers customers to harness the transformative capabilities of private 5G networks while benefiting from expert management and support. To further enhance this partnership, Wipro established a dedicated private 5G lab, fostering the development, testing and demonstration of industry-specific use-cases.

“We are both dedicated to the partnership and delivering a secure, cloud-managed private 5G service to our customers,” said Jo Debecker, global head of Wipro FullStride Cloud. ”.cause it is an as-a-service solution, it provides maximum benefits while minimizing the human resources and costs associated with owning a private network.”
