With the COVID-19 pandemic altering our daily lives and social interactions, carriers are scrambling to cope with the new realities of social distancing and near-universal remote working, as well as the increasing likelihood of a major global recession.

As if all that weren't enough, the pandemic is also taking its toll on 5G technical readiness as governmental measures impact global supply chains and the normal work of standards bodies. For instance, 3GPP has already delayed its work on both the Rel-16 Stage 3 and Rel-17 standards by three months. In turn, these delays have consequences for the broader 5G ecosystem, with snowballing effects on the makers of 5G devices, network equipment manufacturers and carriers planning to deploy 5G SA.

With the pending global recession, carriers will also face the challenge of monetizing their 5G deployments at a time when consumers and businesses will undoubtedly be less willing or able to spend money.

Join us for this free webinar as we assess these issues with our panel of experts.

Key takeaways from this webinar include:

  • Update on carrier 5G rollouts
  • Current 5G outlook and short-term challenges
  • Mapping of 5G field deployment inefficiencies
  • How to safely automate, digitalize and scale 5G rollouts with cloud and analytics
