Game On: Enhance Your 5G Network to Support the Next Level of Service Experience
Date / Time: Tuesday, November 24, 2020, 11:00 am New York / 4:00 pm London
sponsored by

5G is about more than just speed and spectral efficiency in the RAN. It is a catalyst for the evolution to a cloud-native architecture throughout the mobile network. This functionality will not only handle rising traffic loads more efficiently but will also enable new service propositions. These could be novel, consumer-oriented digital experiences or private mobile network slices for the enterprise.

First class 5G performance will be key to the success of these new services. Operators will need to measure and assure the performance of everything from service activation on-demand to transport latency and edge compute availability. How will operators address the service assurance challenges of network slicing and private 5G networks?

Join James Crawshaw, Principal Analyst at Omdia, and Tom Foottit, VP Product Management at Accedian, for an interactive discussion on:

  • 5G technologies and private networks that MNOs and enterprises are implementing
  • New 5G cloud-native service assurance requirements
  • Key performance questions to answer as you prepare for 5G
