Road to 5G: How a Vendor Impacts a Communication SP's 5G Journey
This IDC Market Perspective looks into what communication SPs (CSPs) are looking forward to after deploying 5G. 5G deployments are in full swing, with mature markets, such as South Korea, Japan, Australia, and Singapore, deploying 5G in standalone mode and emerging markets, such as India and Malaysia, powering through 5G deployments at a rapid pace. CSPs in all markets are looking to monetize their service and reap the ROI from their respective 5G networks.
"Although each 5G deployment journey is different for each country in the region, what is common is that CSPs want to be more than a connectivity provider; they want to benefit from the heavy investments they have made to roll out 5G services. CSPs and their vendor partners are key in implementing strategies in their focus areas to meet their business goals," says Swathi Arunaa, senior market analyst, IDC Asia/Pacific.
