5G will radically change the mobile network experience over the coming years. We’re not only talking about faster 4G with bigger data pipes. We’re talking about mobile services that permeate every aspect of life: driving, medicine, manufacturing, education, entertainment, town management, home management – the list goes on.
Telco operators are, not surprisingly, very excited about 5G because each of those new services is a potential source of new revenue. However, they’re also a little cautious because 5G has the potential to completely upend business as usual. Everything from the way networks are archi-tected to the way that services are created, managed and monetized will change with 5G.
