5G’s lower latency and higher bandwidth have unlocked newer uses for enterprises to explore. Additionally, 5G adoption is allowing the transformation of network infrastructure to make it quickly scalable, driving higher levels of customization and lower operating costs.
Enterprises are exploring the decoupling of hardware and software in the form of network function virtualization, automation of network operations, adoption of open-source components (hardware and software), and monetization opportunities. However, the market’s nascency is creating uncertainty and increasing complexities for enterprises.
Therefore, they are looking to partner with providers to share development risks, reduce operational costs, implement system integration measures, bring in a larger talent pool, and leverage the expertise of their partner ecosystem to engineer solutions faster.
