Our path towards next generation mobile networks in Europe: 5G and beyond
5G deployment is becoming more widespread, with mobile operators rolling out their networks and launching corresponding services and products. But as these networks are rolled out and services launched, questions have emerged on multiple fronts – how can mobile operators generate revenue from 5G? Will other players in the market grab all the value that it promises to create? With its advanced capabilities and performance characteristics, to what extent will 5G replace or complement WiFi? How dependent are the benefits of 5G on its integration with other technologies such as AI, cloud computing, etc? And lastly, will 5G be nothing more than a stepping stone on the route to 6G?
