1. The arrival of 5G in standalone
The need for connectivity in the world is becoming more and more important. Increasing consumption of video, data, social networks... how to meet this need and best serve customers?
5G, the fifth generation of mobile networks, is based on historical services. The little extra? In standalone mode, it frees itself from current infrastructures to occupy a virtual space, the cloud. A more powerful technology, a larger volume of data to share, a more reliable and responsive network, more and more connected objects .
The demand is already very strong on the business side. Mainly because this innovation is flexible. A godsend for all telecom players! Indeed, whether they are giants of the sector or local operators, all will be able to propose offers of identical quality .
2. The Open RAN reaches a milestone
The Open RAN (or Radio Access Network) is a constantly evolving sea serpent that is reaching a new level, particularly with the arrival of 5G. As a facilitator of access to suppliers' services, it aims to offer full autonomy to telecom operators. Often (too) dependent on the delivery of equipment and software by a single provider, they now want to benefit from open, multi-vendor networks that guarantee precise control of their business and improved flexibility .
Where licensed private wireless networks were a major expense yesterday, Open RAN proposes to streamline tomorrow's costs. Estimates of the size of the private 5G/LTE market predict strong growth over the next five years. According to consulting firm Juniper Research, annual spending on private networks is expected to double over the next two years to nearly $12 billion, with Open RAN acting as the primary driver of that growth.
3. The sanctuary of the Cloud
Imagine a world where creating your own wireless link is possible in a few clicks, where exchanging with your suppliers doesn't require a phone, where increasing the bandwidth of your customers is done via a software... A futuristic world, you think? Well, not so much!
A new model is on the way: the cloudification of telecoms. The organization as we have always known it tends to disappear. Typically, software and hardware, which have been inseparable until now, will be permanently separated tomorrow. So, how does this work in practice?
The different network elements will be stored on the same infrastructure, the same servers. This new generation will be independent of the historical infrastructures. This is a way of servingultra-customization needs as closely as possible and of managing specific requirements.
Thanks to theautomation of flows and the digitalization of processes with Netwo for example, no more manual, repetitive and time-consuming tasks with little added value! A single tool to centralize your communications, negotiations, purchases, resales... it's "Netwo, metro, dodo"! Operators who have already jumped on the bandwagon are seeing considerable gains. And you, what are you waiting for?
