The Pervasive Network is creating exciting new service opportunities for Communications Service Providers (CSPs). While there is an almost infinite number of possible new revenue streams, individual CSPs will initially need to focus on a few priority applications across consumer and enterprise markets.
THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW
With 5G standards currently in development, and industry experts anticipating a 2019/2020 commercially ready standards-compliant 5G network launch, it is critical for CSPs to not only invest in the capabilities of the next generation networks, but also position themselves as partners in key verticals to secure their place as providers of priority applications.
Dynamic Network Services can assist CSPs in rapidly launching new software-driven services that keep pace with customer desires and expectations, which will largely be shaped by the promise of next generation network capabilities in the 5G ecosystem.
Identify and launch
the most promising use cases for new services for the B2B, B2C and B2B2X markets.
their unique strengths and providing a clear investment strategy for key assets that capitalize on the upcoming high-demand use cases which are driven by 5G enabled network slicing, enhanced broadband, low latency, and massive communications.
Design, develop, deploy and take to the market
next-generation service portfolios that meet the emerging needs of both consumer and enterprise customers in a cost-effective and efficient manner, while reducing time to revenue.
in ‘no regret’ strategies that address 5G cost challenges, such as deploying 5G services and shifting from previous generations of connectivity-focused wireless technologies to flexible and pervasive solution-focused next generation.
Connected home: Upcoming 5G pervasive network capabilities are opening the door to all types of technology-enabled home services. CSPs can bring these together—including traditionally operated digital services, such as broadband TB, as well as newer “smart home” services—via one platform with fully integrated, highly personalized services. DNS can outline a connected home network and product strategy to realize a “continuity of experience” that links the inside and outside of the home for the consumer.
Consumer IoT: The Pervasive Network is positioned to serve as the intelligent hub connecting the Internet of Things – wearables, self-driving and connected vehicles, connected TV and others – in a two-sided, platform-interconnected business model that offers great promise. Next generation 5G networks will enable the connectivity of billions of IoT devices. Laptops, phones, fitness wristbands, televisions, security sensors, appliances, utilities and more will converge into an easy-to-control, totally interconnected environment where CSPs can play a central role.
Virtual Network Services: Software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) has the capability to fulfill three core network functions important to enterprise customers – routing, branch network security, and Virtual Private Networking (VPN), including virtual customer premises equipment (vCPE).
Cloud Services: CSPs can play a central role in offering cloudified new services, potentially including infrastructure-as-a-service, platform-as-a-service, and software-as-a-service.
Enterprise Mobility & Security: CSPs have significant opportunities in enterprise digital services related to information security and enterprise mobility management.
Intelligent Enterprise: CSPs can help enterprises take advantage of the Pervasive Network’s capability to serve as the intelligent hub connecting the IoT with other aspects of the business.
