Building 5G Networks
In 2024, the amount of mobile data traffic will have increased compared to today by a factor of 5, and 25 percent of all mobile data traffic will be carried by 5G networks. Communication service providers now face three main challenges. The first is how to build the capacity required, in a dynamic and flexible way. The second is how to best address operational inefficiencies, by leveraging automation and AI. And the third is how to increase the revenue growth, by means of service differentiation and ability to leverage partner ecosystems. With Ericsson they will be ready to tackle these challenges.
