Intelligent 5G & Edge

Pioneering 5G Open Networks and the full ecosystem.

5G and Edge are the foundation of data-driven transformation: they will change the way everyone – companies, governments and consumers – interact and do business, leading to ground-breaking innovations and services.

At the same time, telco players are facing major challenges and needs: contain network development – deployment and management costs, diversify to generate new revenues and monetize their 5G assets while facing intense competition. Telco players need to play a key role in the new connected and digital industry.

Our intelligent 5G & Edge strategy is pioneering Open Networks, disaggregation and the full ecosystem. It aims to help our telco clients strategize, build, transform and deliver business value with their next generation network while minimizing TCO (Total Cost of Ownership).

Relying on a worldwide network of 10,000+ telco engineers, we provide a unique combination of technology expertise, multi-industry knowledge and innovative mindset. We offer the design and integration of Advanced Networks, 5G & Edge.

“Capgemini has been positioned as a Leader in the Everest Group 5G Engineering Services PEAK Matrix® Assessment 2021 due to its rich experience and capabilities in the domain, its large and skilled talent pool, and a rich network of enabling partners.

“Capgemini is a true full-service 5G engineering service provider, as it has extensive offerings not only in 5G engineering but in assistive technologies, including edge and cloud. It is also one of the only few companies with a strong play in private 5G with offerings, such as business-to-business monetization platforms for SD-WAN and vertical integration services for specific industries.

“Capgemini’s widespread presence of 5G delivery centers and 5G labs makes it a fit for global Telecom Service Providers and enterprises. Its portfolio of 5G intellectual property and frameworks, such as 5G Next Gen Core (NGC) software framework, edge computing platforms, and intelligent controllers for open RAN, ensures that it is received as an innovative and holistic service provider in the market.”
