5G is not a “build it and they will come” proposition. Every day, this ecosystem goes to work determined to prove the value of what can be delivered to consumers and enterprises. For all the progress the industry has made, 5G remains in its infancy with plenty of roadway ahead. Less than 35% of service providers have deployed any flavour of 5G. Less than 5% have deployed on a true 5G core network. 5G is harder, more expansive, and has more riding on it—literally and figuratively—than any previous generation network. It’s no surprise then that even with today’s macroeconomic headwinds more than $175B will be spent globally on infrastructure between 2023 and 2025 to support everything these deployments comprise—from cloud and core to private wireless networks, Open RAN, and beyond. We will also see investments to counter inflationary and energy pressures with heightened focus on solutions and technologies to improve productivity, capital efficiency and power management.
Join us for this private, closed-door virtual roundtable where we will be taking a deeper look at the following questions:
1) Why invest in 5G - What are the compelling use cases emerging for 5G? - Ultra low Latency? Or Network Capacity and performance?
2) Has the economic downturn and energy costs impacted 5G strategies yet?
3) Is there a case to Accelerate Speed and time to market?
