The 5G revolution

Accelerating the 5G future of business

The possibilities sound endless – but what do businesses actually expect (and worry about) from next generation connectivity?

Key challenges

Spectrum access/network deployment feasibility

Spectrum will remain critical to 5G. 5G will need spectrum within 3 key frequency ranges. Availability/at what cost will impact the 5G business case.

Strategy use cases and business model

Financial outlook pressure on traditional revenue; finding new models and the investment requires a business case.

Device innovation & technology breakthroughs

New 5G radio will be challenged to deliver improved spectral efficiency. The push for <1ms latency will require innovation and evolution.

Network deployment approach

Use of mmW frequencies needs network design breakthroughs. 5G & Small Cells differ from 4G and need new regulatory and deployment approach.

Architectural and platform innovation

New Architecture, Platforms promote disruptive technologies in greenfield areas; network slicing will need a new operating model.

Operational complexity

Network & IT architecture merge, E2E Services-based operations — this leads to a tidal transformation in stacks, processes and people.
