Spectrum access options for 5G non-public networks vary between countries. Furthermore, there are multiple architecture options for 5G non-public networks and different possible operational models. And besides mid-band spectrum like 3.4-4.2 GHz, high band or “mmWave” spectrum will play a role for 5G non-public networks. This leads to multiple paths for cooperation between mobile network operators and industry verticals.
