5G Performance Monitoring: Using the Network Edge for Competitive Advantage
Date / Time: Tuesday, December 4, 2018, 11:00 am New York / 4:00 pm London

Gabriel Brown, Principal Analyst – Mobile Networks and 5G, Heavy Reading

Richard Piasentin, Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer, Accedian

In Heavy Reading's recent 5G survey, sponsored by Accedian, more than 80% of mobile operators say 5G is either their top or top-five priority, closely followed by virtualized network functions and software-defined networks for efficiency and cost reasons. At the same time, operators need to transform operations by automating service provisioning, testing and management and using real-time insight from analytics and machine learning to manage performance and customer experience.

The 5G services that will actually make operators money – beyond the promise of speed – are still being worked out. But one certainty is the need to manage more data, different traffic types and a diverse set of applications and services, including guarantees to enterprises that their slice of network connectivity will perform. If 5G services are to thrive, operators will need to get full control over network and application performance to assure the customer experience.

Please join Gabriel Brown, Principal Analyst at Heavy Reading, and Richard Piasentin, Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer at Accedian, who will present the survey results, discuss the current state of 5G, considerations for managing "business-critical" applications and network slices, and enabling 5G as a mobile cloud platform that can deliver applications with performance guarantees.
