In spite of COVID-19, 5G deployments are accelerating and the pace of their roll out is twice that of 4G. It took 4G five years to achieve 3% penetration globally, while 5G will achieve that in just two years. In some developed markets, its impact has already reached the mass market - in S Korea for example, 28% of mobile data is over 5G.

While the initial market indicators are positive, we asked 75 operators who have launched 5G what they have learnt so far about 5G, the challenges encountered and what they think the future commercial prospects are for the technology.

The webinar will help those that are involved in developing 5G plans or rolling out 5G networks, as we showcase:

  • Which consumer and enterprise use cases operators have been prioritized – and what are their 5G product roadmap plans.
  • Do operators expect 5G to unlock potential of new consumer segments like AR/VR, cloud gaming, consumer IoT and smart home?
  • The most common network solution challenges that have been encountered – and how they can be overcome.
  • The implications of these use cases on new capability requirements – the extent to which Cloud NFVI platform, 5G Core, Edge, or Cloud RAN have been or will be deployed.
  • How operators are planning on evolving their access, and core network to accommodate the new capabilities.
The webinar will conclude with a view on the key lessons in designing and building a use-case centric 5G.

Key topics include:

  • Consumer and enterprise use cases
  • Dynamic Spectrum Sharing, and Cloud RAN
  • Migration to 5G standalone, 5G Core & Orchestration
  • Cloud native NFVI platform & Edge
  • Surgical network planning & design
