To clearly understand the upsides and downsides of delivering 5G infrastructure, Vertiv partnered with 451 Research to get operators’ insights on implementing 5G and edge computing. More than 100 telecom operator tech decision makers worldwide outlined which enabling technologies and services will most affect their 5G success over the next decade.
  
According to the report, “Telco Study on 5G Reveals Industry Hopes and Fears: From Energy Costs to Edge Computing Transformation, “ 5G will be “the most impactful and difficult network upgrade ever faced by the telecom industry. Read the full report below.
The report not only outlines the “hopes and fears” of telecom operators on the cusp of a new era; it makes clear that the transformation has already begun. Twelve percent of survey participants have begun deploying 5G in 2019 with an additional 86 percent planning to deploy 5G services by 2021. Listen to the webcast with Brian Partridge, VP Applied Infrastructure and DevOps Channel from 451 research, and Eric LeCalvez, VP Strategic Accounts from Vertiv, to learn more about the pace of this phenomenal change.
As standards continue to evolve, new use cases are enabled and networks are transformed, telecom operators – and the enterprises they support – will need to make significant investments in their network. Those investments will be focused on supporting densification, adding computing and storage capacity at the edge and adapting to 5G’s higher energy requirements. Read our Practical Guide to Enabling 5G Deployments for information on how to manage this historic transformation.
