A Timeline Guide For Your 5G Strategy

5G Will Be A Long Journey, But Prepare Now — Because The Promise Is Huge

October 28, 2019


Why Read This Report

The rollout of 5G is much more evolutionary than the rollout scenarios of previous cellular standards. The primary reason for the different pace relates to the gradual and piecemeal definition of the 5G standard by the main 5G standardization bodies, the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The new cellular technology will encompass a large collection of capabilities not available in past cellular generations. This report helps CIOs and infrastructure professionals evaluate and prepare for the introduction timeline of 5G.
