What I Learned This Week

Network automation will be critical to achieving 5G’s full potential and delivering next generation wireless services. How to invest.

In recent WILTWs, we have argued that the buildout of 5G wireless networks is set to be one of the largest infrastructure projects ever and is the most important technology race of the next five years. We are studying the implications of 5G wireless as it will likely determine the winners of the 21st century (see reports). Fundamentally, in a 5G world, networks are shifting from being hardware centric to software driven. Automation is critical as it will enable 5G networks to cost effectively and efficiently handle the exponential increase in the number of connected devices and thousand-fold jump in data generation produced via the IoT, autonomous cars, and industrial applications.
