5G: Finding the Opportunity in IoT

Many leading Communications Service Providers (CoSPs) are preparing their networks for 5G today. They are moving away from appliance-based network infrastructures and deploying Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) using servers based on commercial off-the-shelf hardware running standard x86 computing architecture. This enables CoSPs to benefit from greater agility and flexibility in the network.

For communications service providers (CoSPs), 5G represents an opportunity to sell new services to enterprises that want to benefit from the Internet of Things (IoT).

Learn about the new use cases 5G will enable, the trials that have been conducted, and the network requirements for enterprise IoT applications.
