Whitepaper: 5G Can Be a Catalyst for NFV – Will CSPs Win the Battle for Value With OTT Providers?
CSPs are in a difficult position. They are faced with sustained competitive pressure from OTT players, while continuing to invest in network capacity in an environment of slow revenue growth. The transition to 5G, which has technology and business implications, offers the promise of some relief.
Network slicing provides CSPs an opportunity to interact differently with their customers and the OTT players, potentially allowing them to garner a larger share of the value. IoT, too, is poised to deliver a new revenue stream. To fully benefit, though, CSPs need to embrace NFV and cloud delivery models. Together with real-time databases, the technologies will complement 5G to enable CSPs to operate more efficiently and deliver a better experience to their customers.
