Virtualization: The Key Driver for Delivering 5G’s Promise?
Webinar / May 2020

5G promises new service enablement, lower costs, higher productivity and lower latency. But how and when will the promise become reality?

Technically, virtualization is the biggest revolution in 5G and there is little that will not be touched by it in the core network and RAN. Beyond technical considerations, virtualization and open source solutions could usher in new technology players and bring variety to a concentrated vendor landscape.

Join this webinar to learn more about the impact of virtualization on the 5G business case and how it might reshape the partnership landscape in areas like private networking.

Speakers will also share findings from a recent survey report on the opportunity and challenges for 5G in industrial applications, discuss the maturity of 5G technologies and standards in this area, and debate whether this factor might be creating a barrier for the near-term success of 5G.
