Innovation in a 5G world – key strategies for telcos to stay flexible and keep costs down
There won’t be just one “killer 5G use case” – there will be many. This is because, through new technical capabilities like network slicing, operators can offer more bespoke network services to customers with a diverse range of requirements. Therefore, operators must be able to support services which don’t just do one thing at scale, but that can support variety.
5G network slicing will enable telcos to provide specialized connectivity in a flexible manner. However, to do this in a profitable way, telcos must implement the right cost structure and changes in their operations’ systems, people and processes.
