Re: Nice Piece
Then there is the transmision/backhaul "big game 2018" to be resolved that forms a huge part of the business cases.

Re: 4-5G
Yes, everyone is expecting that and hoping for it, but it not here yet and it is probably tricky from a technical standpoint with lasers interfering (compare to trying to operate two vive setups next to each other with independent lighthouse emitters). Until it's actually here and working we can just speculate.

Nice Piece
Nice piece that sums up the status quo. You hint at the real issue ....  "They (analysts) simply doubt that operators will get rich from it". How can a telco build use cases that won't simply allow FANGs to eat their cake after the massive investment densification and 5g?  The opportunity to offer unlimited is hardly pursusive. Then there is the transmision/backhaul "big game" to be resolved that forms a huge part of the business cases.

 

Just one final food for thought do the larger incumbant operators (own backhaul and leadership in spectrum ownership) have an incentive accelerate 5g?

Re: 4-5G
IoT likely like other services in their infancy...a few figure out profitable service, plenty of untapped potential still out there, there are still untapped services to be offered, some of which will be done profitably, but others will be money losers for some time yet.

Re: 4-5G
Good point, on standardization and product development level it's progressing well with commecialization of 5G happening sooner rather than later.

Re: 4-5G
I read somewhere that there are about 1.5B cows on earth so there must be some potential. The bigger question is what the potential is for operators. Of the few bigger ones that are reporting IoT revenues (Vodafone, Telefonica and Verizon) growth has basically been flat this year. To us it signals that it has become an increasingly competitive market with fast price erosion.

Re: 4-5G
Yep, and some of the promises of 5G will probably never be fufilled. Some of the timetables for self-driving cars still seem insanely optimistic to me, for instance.

That doesn't mean 5G isn't the first industry-wide cell standard designed for IoT, rather than having that tacked on as an after-thought. That is probably going shake-up service offerings in ways we haven't thought of yet, for starters.

Re: 4-5G
If you're referring to marketing gas, then OK, the 5G label suffers from premature overexposure -- but it's hard to think of a technology that sits outside the normal marketing hype/disillusion/reality progression.

Yes, it's this really. Situation normal.

Behind the marketing gas, there has been a lot of progress this year.

Re: 4-5G
Regarding overhype -- 5G will materialize, and it will be the defining mobile technology for the 2020s. I'm not sure how that can be overhyped. If you're referring to marketing gas, then OK, the 5G label suffers from premature overexposure -- but it's hard to think of a technology that sits outside the normal marketing hype/disillusion/reality progression.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
