The commerciality question – could 5G be the open door to increased revenue? Maybe. Is it possible to create a scaled-down private network that doesn’t compromise user experience? That’s the real question. This event is the third of four in this month's Virtual Network SIG series.
The ability for service providers to provide private 5G networks or dedicated, optimized slices of public networks for private use is seen as key for enterprise monetization of 5G. 5G offers service providers the opportunity to deliver services that go way beyond simple connectivity. Some studies suggest that private networks and 5G slices may generate a revenue uplift of 12%, but accessing this economic upside isn't without its challenges.
How do service providers offer scaled-down private networks that are economically viable? How can you create an end-to-end network slice optimized for bandwidth, latency or scale without compromising customer experience and what does this mean for the concept of "net neutrality"?
The focus of the third event in our Virtual Networks SIG series 'Realising the 'true 5G' dream' is on 'Private networks, slicing and meeting the needs of industrial users'. We will hear from some of the industry's leaders about the challenges and opportunities of private 5G networks and network slicing and how they apply to key industry verticals.
The session will conclude with a closing panel discussion and opportunity for people to network. Find out more about other events in the Virtual Networks SIG series: Realising the 'true 5G' dream
