The promises of 5G go well beyond high data rate, spectral efficiency, ultra-low latency, or massive sensor networks.
5G will accelerate the variety and volume of data traffic, further shattering constrained legacy service delivery models and impacting network economics. Many new services will emerge on the 5G network the same way Uber, Facebook, and Instagram emerged after LTE deployment.
Consumer demands will continue to change and evolve, so it’s critical for operators to employ advancements that not only support current trends but can also be quickly changed and adjusted for future expectations, which will include exponential increases in demands for mobile data.
It is not unreasonable to suggest that the survival of some operators and traditional Network Equipment Providers is in question. Burdened by legacy business models, they’re financially struggling to deliver the required innovation, flexibility and agility needed to remain competitive and profitable. With 5G on the horizon, the vendor community can no longer be limited by this lack of openness.
With an absolute focus on India, Mavenir has planned, in the next 12 to 18 months, to be one of the most preferred partners of operators for the transformation of network infrastructure economics.
The promises of 5G go well beyond high data rate, spectral efficiency, ultra-low latency, or massive sensor networks. The fundamental appeal of 5G lies in the fact that the entire infrastructure acts as a cohesive platform for innovative applications and is tuned to flex with demand - providing services tailored to their unique characteristics.
