Join us in this joint webinar on January 11th to understand the economic considerations in building a 5G infrastructure that fulfils the diverse service requirements of multiple use-cases and industries.

5G and IoT requirements

Mobile data traffic is growing at a rapid pace. In addition, there will be an estimated 18 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices by 2022, meaning there will be an even greater increase in demand for data.

The era of IoT has the potential to transform industry and society and, with 5G on the horizon, there are unlimited possibilities for new business models. Networks will need to adapt to support IoT for Critical Machine Type Communication (C-MTC) and Massive Machine Type Communication (M-MTC) services, representing a range of use cases with varying connectivity requirements.

Network slicing

Operators will need to invest in new technologies to address the efficiency and flexibility demands of these new service deployments, if they are to make the most of the potential value that can be generated. Network slicing is one solution that has now emerged and provides the capability to enable new business models across a wide range of industries. It allows operators to segment the network to support particular services and deploy multiple logical networks for different service types over one common infrastructure.

Despite extensive industry discussions on network slicing, we are unaware of any other economic study that quantifies the benefits of this technology.

Join us to understand the economic considerations in building a 5G infrastructure that fulfils the diverse service requirements of multiple use-cases and industries. A presentation of the key findings from the study and a discussion with special guest Maria Cuevas, Head of core network and services research team at BT.
