The four challenges CSPs face as they roll out their 5G networks

It’s a paradigm shift requiring new ways of testing and validating network services

Communications service providers (CSPs) are focused on delivering 5G service to their customers. 5G advanced technology enables much higher data rates, lower latency, and new use cases creating new business opportunities for CSPs in consumer and enterprise domains. CSPs initially piloted 5G services in their networks with legacy 2G, 3G, and 4G services. Now, they are using 5G New Radio (NR) Core to deliver basic 5G use cases, fi rst for 5G standalone (SA) SIM and then to deliver complex use cases such as the same 5G SA SIM to work in existing 2G, 3G, and 4G networks. In parallel, CSPs are building use cases to retain existing customers and attract new ones by providing high-data-rate 5G services for new 5G-supported devices such as HD video and virtual reality (VR) that deliver superior network coverage, service availability, and cost savings.

Four key challenges

  1. UE and cell coverage challenges
  2. 5GS SA service deployment challenges
  3. 2G/3G/4G/5G network service integration challenges
  4. Service testing challenges
