Unprecedented speed is just the start of how 5G is changing the face of connectivity. What has been the impact so far on how people live, work, and play, all over the world?
There is no doubt that the move to cloud native has started and 5G has been the catalyst. However, there are still many InterGENerational networks like 2G, 3G, 4G & LTE in service that are functional and delivering on their promise. Those operators who haven’t started the migration will need to answer a few questions. How do they manage the transition from legacy to new, from known and trusted technologies to a new paradigm?
5G Standalone represents the real network of the future. Who are the key players in this ecosystem and how can they collaborate to deliver a virtualised, automated, on- demand SA 5G network?
Open RAN gives telcos and CSPs greater flexibility as to how they deploy their radio systems and networks, and as such it is expected to become central to the success of 5G. RAN buildout represents a massive investment and how it is executed will determine how operators can deploy and monetize 5G services.
The message is that 5G finally opens the door to Industry 4.0, but what’s the reality behind the hype? Manufacturers are under pressure to improve product quality, boost factory efficiency, enhance safety, security and sustainability, whilst remaining competitive and profitable. How can 5G help enterprise customers achieve these objectives?
5G is expected to be a significant accelerator for smart city services. With extremely high speeds and low latency will enable everything from autonomous vehicles and remote surgery, to recycling and waste and digital learning. How can operators take a slice of this revenue, and how should we address pricing?
