What We’re Working On


The Private 5G Working Group is focused on education around Private 5G capabilities and the key technical enablers to adoption as well as the potential obstacles.


The Private 5G (P5G) Working Group will play a vital role in educating enterprises about capabilities that are technically feasible today and capabilities that will be realized only when standards progress further, devices with the latest chips become available or regulators free up additional 5G spectrum.

As the voice of the large enterprise, ONUG has excelled at identifying potential obstacles to the adoption of new networking technologies. This Working Group will zero in on the key technical enablers for P5G while calling out key blocking issues for specific deployment models or use cases.

Any large enterprise that adopts a new networking technology is faced with a host of issues for fully operationalizing that technology in the context of the company’s best practices and internal compliance requirements for network and security operations teams. The P5G Working Group will address these P5G related operational issues such as coexistence and convergence of P5G and WiFi networks, uniform methods for defining application QoS and security policies, network observability methods and APIs for programmatic control.
