The deployment of 5G, especially 5G Core (5GC) will have profound implications on how CSPs evolve essential network services in the next 24-36 months. Through its annual survey, Heavy Reading aims to provide a current snapshot of considerations and strategies that operators will utilise to make the most of their 5G investments.

Survey results should help you priorities your procurement strategies:

  • More than half of the CSPs launching 5G are working on implementing cloud-based LI in the next 12-18 months. 
  • BSS/OSS transformations will have a direct impact on the LI and DR platforms, with more than two-thirds of CSPs confirming either working on these changes today or planning to do it within 18-24 months. 
  • 5GC warrants improved cyber security posture and awareness within the LI teams with more than 85% CSPs agree for increased threat intelligence, ability to run more cyber risk assessment exercises, and implementing new security controls.
