*NEW RESEARCH* Opportunities in 5G for UK Telcos and SITS Suppliers

* NEW RESEARCH * Opportunities in 5G for UK Telcos and SITS SuppliersOur latest research report - Opportunities in 5G for UK Telcos and SITS Suppliers - analyses the scope for both existing providers and new market entrants to build or expand new or additional revenue streams through the implementation and/or operation of private fifth generation (5G) cellular networks and edge compute infrastructure and services for enterprise customers in the UK.

Telcos and mobile network operators (MNOs) have spent large sums of money buying spectrum licenses to operate fifth generation (5G) mobile networks in the UK, and must now find ways to recoup that investment by coaxing customers into using them. Subsequent revenue and profit margins will rely to a certain extent on consumer 4G upgrades. But the longer term bet is firmly on 5G enabled enterprise services that deliver the capacity, performance, latency and reliability to support a much broader range of business focused applications.

Those 5G networks will rely less on the dedicated telecommunications hardware of the past, and more on virtualised components enabled by software defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization technology (NFV). Telcos will need help to configure, deploy and manage that infrastructure, and software and IT service (SITS) suppliers are in a strong position to help while simultaneously navigating the new threat to their own applications and services that a new generation of network operators will now present.
