Is your network supply chain operation ready for 5G?
The legacy, number and specification of network equipment involved in any telecommunications’ supply chain vary vastly between organisations. However, there lies one key common denominator for all telcos … there is a huge opportunity ahead of the 5G investment curve.
EY research finds that 1 in 10 businesses are already apportioning IT budgets toward 5G, with a further 50% of enterprises preparing to upgrade to 5G connectivity in the next two years.
In this report, we illustrate typical warning signs of an under-performing network infrastructure supply chain and outline the opportunity for telcos to capitalise on the 5G investments.
The time is now. Status quo is not an option to address the operational challenges for 5G deployment. The telcos that couple large investments in networks with clear articulation of business use cases and operational efficiency improvements will drive the maximum value from their 5G spend. ”
