5G: Empowering digital transformation through innovation

There is an exciting future ahead of us as leading communications service providers prepare to build high-performing, open and programmable 5G networks that utilize 5G standalone (SA) architecture. These networks will provide new opportunities for service innovation and open up possibilities for performance-based business models.

As 5G matures, the focus for many service providers is expected to shift toward developing differentiated connectivity offerings.
