With the plethora of services that 5G is capable of bringing in and the expected variability of communication demands that can originate from CSPs, there is a compelling need for brokering of services with what is available or can be created versus what the market requires.
With the first 5G commercial mobile broadband networks getting off the ground, and the first devices coming to market, 5G IoT is naturally the next major opportunity for the cellular industry.
Everything you need to know about 5G. What is 5G? How much faster is it than 4G? Can I get 5G on my phone? What spectrum does it use? We answer all these 5G questions and more.

This presentation discusses what's driving the connected car in regards to networking and communication technologies (especially 5G) and highlights the moral and environmental opportunity we have in delivering the autonomous vehicle. It also highlights the need to think beyond traditional road testing into the world of Digital Twins where most of the heavy lifting could be done in a virtual world.
LTE IoT will continue to evolve, and its expanded deployments are integral parts of the 5G platform -- a unified, more capable connectivity fabric for our future.

Yes, 5G will provide faster speeds, but it is designed to do much more than that. Low latencies, greater resiliency and the ability for a network provider to provide users with performance guarantees are among 5G’s key promises.
To deliver faster speeds and lower latencies, 5G requires end users to be closer to a cell site. That means many more cell sites are needed than for 4G. While this will require some new towers to be built, the vast majority of the new sites will be located on existing structures—buildings, streetlights, utility poles, etc.—that have access to fiber or other broadband backhaul.
5G offers tremendous promise with ultra-high data speeds, low latency and greater reliability being some of the ultimate features. But not all of those capabilities will be available on Day 1, and some aspects may take longer than others. In this webinar, panelists will discuss when things like 5G devices, 5G test equipment, 5G coverage and design tools and network slicing—all within the context of non-standalone vs. standalone 5G—will be available in the marketplace.
This ebook covers the latest and most popular trends from our new community, The 5G Exchange.
The successful design, production and rollout of 5G networks requires sound test strategies that ensure product and system performance while also meeting stringent cost and time requirements. Anritsu’s new 5G NR white paper addresses current standards, frequency considerations and how to develop and implement sound test processes. Learn more by downloading the Test Strategies for 5G NR white paper.
Most 5G industry discussions focus on the radio network, but the transport network will also play a crucial role in 5G. Based on a global operator survey of 104 respondents, this white paper provides the industry’s most in-depth look at the current state and future trajectory of 5G transport (or Xhaul) based on operators’ views and plans.
White Paper: Rakuten and Cisco: How to build a faster, more flexible and highly optimized 5G network
Out-maneuver your competition by reimagining your business and 5G architecture. Read how Rakuten with Cisco and Altiostar built a faster, more flexible and highly optimized 5G network.
Up Your Game in network performance, customer experience and network optimization with the predictive speed of Machine Learning RAN Automation.
Learn how network operators around the world really feel about multi-vendor open Radio Access Networks.
This White Paper discusses the network architecture changes, new frame formats, expected timing, and latency requirements, and why they are required. Understanding the combination of these key areas will provide the background to understanding how these networks will look as this industry moves rapidly to 5G.
As the race to deploy 5G gathers speed, the reality of building out new and different network architectures presents a variety of complex issues for service providers to address. Building on this real-world experience, this paper examines 5G transport challenges, evolution of the radio access network (RAN) architecture, best practices for design and deployment, early business model opportunities and a vision for the future.
This white paper moves beyond the buzzwords and provides a deeper look at machine learning, fishing in a sea of data, and applying machine learning algorithms within AIOps.

Many operators around the world are beginning the next network evolution for 5G, and are starting to initiate 5G Core (5GC) network trials. So, what needs to happen in tandem with rolling out the 5G Core capabilities to deliver new pricing and business model innovations?
The 5G enterprise opportunity is there, and it will continue to grow, but if operators cannot shake the perceptions of being obstacles, as opposed to enablers, they'll soon find themselves on the sidelines.
To gain a realistic understanding of operators' views and plans for transport, Heavy Reading launched its first-ever 5G Transport Market Leadership Study with support from Ericsson, Fujitsu, Juniper and VIAVI Solutions.
What's the best way forward for operators when it comes 5G transport networks?
What are the three key trends in 5G right now? Dario Talmesio, principal analyst and practice leader for 5G Accelerator and European TMT Research at research house Ovum, tells all.
At 5G World, Heavy Reading senior analyst Steve Bell discusses one of the hottest topics in the 4G and 5G markets -- private networks.
At the recent 5G World event in London, Ovum Research Director Mike Roberts looks at the early 5G service launches and what's coming next.
Marielle Lindgren, CEO for the UK and Ireland at Ericsson, talks to Light Reading's Iain Morris about Vodafone's launch of 5G services in the UK, what kind of applications 5G enables and Ericsson's role in the operator's 5G rollout.
