BearingPoint//Beyond has announced that its Infonova Digital Business Platform is now 5G-ready, enabling Communication Service Providers (CSPs) around the world to create, experiment, launch and monetize new 5G offerings at speed and at scale. The Infonova platform has already been selected by major CSPs, including NTT Group and Tata Communications.
As 5G rolls out across the globe, new opportunities emerge for CSPs and their partners to develop new business models, use cases and applications that make use of 5G’s high-speed, low latency and always-on mobile connectivity. However research has demonstrated that, in order to succeed in the multi-trillion dollar enterprise services market, CSPs must adopt leaner, more agile operations that prioritize experimentation, collaboration, innovation, and rapid time to market.
To monetize 5G at scale, CSPs must ensure that their operational and business support systems can meet four main requirements:
- Orchestration and delivery of complex solutions spanning both different types of networks (e.g:4G, Fiber,5G) and different sources of services (e.g. edge, AR, VR)
- Flexibility in charging and monetization capabilities enabling CSPs to bundle and price anything from network slicing and consumer IoT, to industrial IoT solutions
- The development of partner ecosystems enabling CSPs to truly co-invent and co-create joint solutions with multiple third parties that better fit customer needs
- Increased operational agility and speed with cloud native solutions.
