Future of connectivity: 5G will change the playing field

Part of the User Friendly podcast series

​Ready or not, 5G is coming for us. It is positioned to be the most radical technology upgrade yet. 5G will make our lives even more connected and allow users to access even more digital information. Information exists about what the future of connectivity looks like from a consumer and use case perspective. But what about for the industry players—the people who help enable our connectivity?

Are your bases covered?

With 5G on deck, what can industry players expect?

In this episode of User Friendly, Dave Couture and Jack Fritz from Deloitte will help us separate the hype from the substance as we explore the future of connectivity. They will also discuss the challenges, opportunities, and top considerations for the near and not so near future of 5G.

5G, spectrum, wireless, deep fiber and small cells: all these technologies are bringing us closer to what’s possible with the future of connectivity.

Connecting the future of mobility

Self-driving cars and flashy entertainment apps may get all the attention, but fast, reliable, omnipresent connectivity will be the backbone of the new transportation ecosystem. And that means that telecom companies will likely play as integral a role as any automaker, tech giant, or urban planner.

Telco—Enabling 5G success

Across the globe, telecom operators are pursuing significant investments in 5G and next generation networks. In an effort to succeed, they're also transforming their physical and virtual networks at scale. Deloitte and HPE have collaborated to provide end-to-end solutions that help Telco jumpstart their journey toward 5G implementation by introducing next generation use cases and creating a scalable, programmable network. The goal is a full network transformation with increased agility, reduced operation costs, and minimized time to launch new services, to help telco operators effectively meet their wide scale 5G implementation goals.
