sponsored by
James Crawshaw, Senior Analyst – Service Provider IT and Automation, Heavy Reading

Bill Stanley, Head of Digital Operations – Nokia

5G presents a potential $2 trillion opportunity for communications service providers (CSPs). But increasing revenue is only part of the equation. For CSPs to make 5G profitable, they will also need to look at the cost of spectrum, infrastructure and operations in order to drive profitable growth.

This webinar will focus on controlling the operational cost component of the profitability equation. New modes of operation will introduce new cost metrics which must be achieved in an evolving marketplace where quality of service will be more closely tracked through enterprise service level agreements and contracts.

In this webinar, we will explore several use cases that demonstrate how operations can be transformed to drive productivity, cut OPEX and reduce your time-to-revenue. When you modernize your network and service operations, develop efficient processes and consolidate operational tools CSPs not only lower their costs, they also enhance their ROI and profitability.

Take part in this interactive web seminar to learn:

  • Why is it important to look at the cost side to drive 5G profitability
  • How to simplify operations to boost productivity
  • How to ensure SLA compliance with next generation operations
