5G standalone: Lessons learned and the path forward

  • June 16, 2021
  • 8 am San Francisco / 11 am New York / 4 pm London

Overview

“5G will be the game changer” was the buzz phrase we heard during the past several years. Communications Service Providers (CSPs), who were first out of the gate to deploy 5G, however, experienced only bitter lessons in sharing RAN, Transport, and 4G Core. Even today, CSPs are still seeking ways to monetize 5G infrastructure in an effort to pave the way for return on their million-dollar investments in the 5G infrastructure while overcoming challenges that risk delaying revenue.

Watch this webinar to learn how 5G standalone (SA)—in contrast to 5G non-standalone architecture (NSA)—will blaze new grounds and enable addressing new target markets and, eventually, create new revenue streams. This webinar will focus on designing and deploying an end-to-end 5G network, including RAN, Transport, Core network, network analytics, and orchestration, to win the actual 5G race. We will also discuss how 5G SA shared cloud infrastructure helps mitigate risks, improves network performance for innovative use cases, and increases monetization for service providers.
