The internet of everything needs a platform to generate, analyse and act on the massive data loads, 5G provides this colossal capacity leap. Imagine the businesses which can rely on such capacity and speed and could proactively maintain their equipment or manage resources in real-time.
Fifth-generation (5G) mobile networking is, simply, the story of the future and will build the foundation upon which every industry and sector of society will grow and innovate. 5G’s super-fast speed and reliable connections will update how cities manage roadways, how automakers build their cars and will create new opportunities for self-driving cars, robotics, telehealth, on-the-go VR, and a thousand other applications, some of which no one has thought of yet. New business models and new types of businesses will bring a slew of revenue streams. The ecosystem will operate in a hyper-agile mode and telecom operators must this opportunity.
Capgemini is focused on enabling clients to get the most out of this nascent technology. Where companies have so far taken steps towards automation and connectivity, 5G will allow them to make big leaps. This means 5G technology will enable a digital transformation at a scale and speed not seen to date.
Capgemini has explored several deployment scenarios with our strategic telecom partners to connect the dots to drive towards realising this immense potential. Importantly, it signed a partnership with Telia on collaboration on 5G technology.
