According to a report from 451 Research titled, “Telco Study on 5G Reveals Industry Hopes and Fears: From Energy Costs to Edge Computing Transformation,” 5G will be “the most impactful and difficult network upgrade ever faced by the telecom industry.” As standards continue to evolve, new use cases are enabled and networks are transformed, telecom operators—and the enterprises they support—will need to make significant investments in their network. Those investments will be focused on supporting densification, adding computing and storage capacity at the edge and adapting to 5G’s higher energy requirements. Vertiv, which delivers critical infrastructure for data center, telecom and industrial applications, has published this practical guide to help the industry manage this historic transformation. Specifically, this report is applicable to network infrastructure directors (core and access), procurement teams as well as third-party telecom consultants.
