5G Training Bootcamp

The 5G era is revving up and organizations still without a 5G game plan can expect to fall – not just behind – but way behind their competitors.

The reason is that 5G is about more than a solitary architecture. In reality, 5G technology opens up a plethora of opportunities and investments.

According to data from Ovum, there were approximately 5 million 5G subscriptions at the end of 2019, a number forecast to increase to 1.9 billion by 2024. Additionally, the number of IoT connections is expected to quadruple from 1 billion to over 4 billion during the same time frame.

Since 1998, the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) has fostered the wireless ecosystem by creating standards for cellular technologies aimed at connecting virtually every mobile device and network.

New features and specifications are packaged into new releases, with Releases 15-17 forming the underlying foundation for 5G commercial deployments.

Release 17 (delayed by COVID-19) includes more improvements such as support for new services for asset tracking, audio-visual service production, communication service requirements for critical medical applications, service requirements on enhancements for cyber-physical control applications in vertical domains, multimedia priority services (phase 2), support for Multi-SIM devices, enhanced relays for energy efficiency and extensive coverage, and others.

The Future of Retail report says that 89% of retailers rely on technology to improve customer experience. And, 96% of retailers use technology to improve operational efficiency. In this way 5G networks will act as a catalyst in the digital transformation journey of organizations big and small.
