Re: Questions that I think that Ribbon needs to think about I believe little change to the transport network is needed for the vast majority of early 5G launches we've seen to date. It's the mass market, Release 16-based launches with new use cases that will require the big changes.

Re: Questions that I think that Ribbon needs to think about @Sterling,

This implies that there are 0 installations of 5G.  Which I think is not true.

Re: Questions that I think that Ribbon needs to think about Brooks, 

In the case of 5G transport, I don't believe the vendors have been selected. So that's the opportunity they are after.

Questions that I think that Ribbon needs to think about  

So, I get the idea of the acquisition.  I understand your comments about ECI in North America.

I think the question is:  Is there an opportunity to enter in packet-optical in 5G or are those vendors already selected?

My answer would be, I think they are mostly already selected.  If so, then I am not sure that Ribbon adds much to ECI.
