Incumbent vendors cannot ignore the market-disrupting implications of AT&T’s and Swisscom’s outsourced 5G mobile cores

Article | July 1, 2021

At the tail-end of June, both AT&T and Swisscom announced plans to outsource their 5G mobile core networks to cloud service providers. AT&T’s announcement was with Microsoft Azure. Swisscom’s was with AWS. With the AT&T deal, Azure will be acquiring IP and engineering expertise from AT&T that it can resell to other operators. It was reported that Azure will offer jobs to current AT&T employees, as well. This move suggests Microsoft understands how critical it will be to retain talent that has deep networking knowledge. Swisscom’s deal does not appear to include AWS acquiring any Swisscom assets or employees, but the operator did say it will be using AWS for its own IT applications.

How service providers can unlock the coveted SME market

Article | July 1, 2021

For communications service providers, questions still loom over how 5G will be monetized. Many have voiced the view that the enterprise segment is where 5G will make its money, with potential use cases across a breadth of verticals including the automotive, manufacturing and utilities industries to name a few. However, if service providers focus more on delivering 5G business use cases to small and midsized enterprises (SMEs), this market segment could prove to be a fruitful source of revenue. As 5G deployments continue to roll-out globally, CSPs are focused on deriving value from projects and partnerships with large multinational enterprises. And they are eager to do so quickly to assure payback from their $1trillion investments in the next generation network. However, are CSPs blinkered in their approach to generating ROI from 5G? Are they limiting themselves by focusing too much on a small segment of the enterprise market, that to date has limited CSPs' involvement in early 5G projects, reducing them to mere providers of connectivity?

A SMART FUTURE: HOW 5G AND SMART DEVICES WILL CHANGE THE WORLD

Article | July 1, 2021

When one thinks of 5G, they think of cellphones and how communication will improve with faster internet. It will do so for sure, but that’s a very limited way of thinking about this great technological feat. What 5G will inexplicably revolutionize is the way we interact with machines and how integrated they become with our lives. Combined with AI, and smart devices we’re looking at a whole new way of life. So, let us look at what it all means for the future. Before we move further, we must look at what 5G is and how it is different from 4G. First off, this new technology comes with OFDM encoding which is part of an air interface design especially modeled to be flexible such that it meets the needs of other tech pieces with different bandwidths as well as scale for future applications. Compared to 4G, it will be able to operate on larger channels and that too, with lower latency. This means more people can work online at the same time easily with low lag times.
