LAS VEGAS – #MWC22 – The industry had high hopes that 2022 would be the year of private networks, but Verizon's Arvin Singh says it's more likely the decade of private networks.

"There's so much about private networks that enterprises and businesses are still trying to grapple with," said Arvin Singh, head of 5G innovation for Verizon.
