It is a communication system that is operated for the benefit of one user or a group of users brought together by a joint property association to serve their own needs.
There are three types of Private Telecommunications Networks:
- Local Area Network (LAN)
- Campus Area Network (CAN)
- Metropolitan Area Network (MAN)
A Private Telecommunications Network is a communication network that serves a closed group of pre-defined users, and thus it differs from a Public Telecommunications Network, which provides its services to the general public regardless of their identities and locations.
The most prominent examples of the uses of this network are as mentioned below:
- Office Network [i.e. Gov. authorities / Corporations]
- Household Network [i.e. Wifi]
- Data Centers
- Critical Infrastructures Network [i.e.: Security Institutions/ Banks]
Note that it is not permissible for any person/entity, when establishing a Private Telecommunications Network, to rent, sell, or re-sell the telecommunication capabilities or the telecommunication services of the Private Telecommunications Network to the public without a prior approval and permission from the Authority.
They are a group of users who have an economic or non-economic relation and in which can be considered a part of an entity based on a professional, commercial, or any other kind of relationship that has been established between members of that group, or with another group of a different entity that requires the need to link them together.
