The 5G Platform – Using the Value Plane to Bridge Business and Network Empowering Next-Generation Monetization
Date / Time: Monday, October 12, 2020, 11:00 am New York / 4:00 pm London
sponsored by

With 5G radio networks rolling out all over the world, and as the first 5G cores begin to be deployed – the perpetual question remains – what about the 5G use cases? In other words, where is the money?!

With many discussions exploring emerging business models, partners and innovative use cases, CSPs must first understand how they can be ready – as a 5G platform – to quickly adapt and support any use case and business model and stay ahead of the competition. Furthermore, this approach calls for a new "value plane" – a seamless bridge between business, IT and network. This type of agility represents a step change for most operators, but it is crucial to be prepared for the 5G/IoT/cloud and edge era.

Indeed, if CSPs do not adapt and prepare for the challenge, they will remain in the same position of "connectivity/network providers" with alternative players reaping the revenue.

Join this webinar to hear some of the key factors CSPs must consider today, looking into the future. Topics covered will include:

  • How will the 5G network platform be consumed and monetized? – The value plane's key position in applying the cloud business model on the network
  • Why cloud-native, combined 5G charging and policy functions are key enablers of the value plane and the 5G platform
  • The importance of E2E, transparent user journeys for dynamic service consumption – B2C, B2B and B2B2X use cases
