The Significance of 5G Roaming’s Impact on Monetization Opportunities: Free Whitepaper Download and Webinar Replay
The adoption of 5G brings the potential for large quantities of mobile devices requiring widespread connectivity, faster download and upload speeds with minimal latency.
Global mobile operators have seen the approach of 5G now for years, but as more and more providers have taken steps to implement 5G or are in the planning phases to invest in the platform, the realization that 5G will be making a significant impact on the telecom industry is becoming clear.
But it is also becoming apparent that in order to make 5G a reality, strategies including implementation and monetization, in addition to overall technical requirements, will play a critical part of a successful roll-out of 5G and 5G roaming world-wide. This is supported by a recent survey of global mobile operators conducted by Kaleido that shows over 85% of mobile operators are planning to launch 5G SA by the end of 2025. This is a substantial amount, and a huge indicator that 5G has finally won consensus with the vast majority of global operators.
This market study “5G Roaming, Impact and Monetization opportunities”, published by Kaleido and sponsored by Syniverse, focuses on operators around the world and their plans and thoughts around 5G. These operators responded to a comprehensive survey on their 5G roaming implementation strategies, the technical requirements of 5G NSA and SA, and their overall perception towards 5G use cases and how they envision 5G generating revenues. Specific results from the survey include an understanding of how operators currently feel about 5G and their launch plans, what trials and testing have been identified as a precursor to going live with 5G SA, and addressing the financial benefits and expectations that 5G will present. In addition, the report identifies the key challenges operators face in the deployment of 5G. This includes testing, establishing strong 5G roaming agreements with partners, assuring security, quality, and employing a solid IPX solution.
This new intelligence white paper is supported by a webinar produced by Kaleido and featuring experts from Syniverse, T-Mobile, Vodafone, and Swisscom. Building on the survey results from the report, the webinar will present a panel discussion that will delve into the transition from 4G to 5G roaming, how operators will prioritize customer experiences by setting requirements around QoS and establishing strong SLAs. The BCE model of clearing and settlement and how it will play into the monetization of 5G roaming. The immediate needs of adopting VoLTE and VoLTE roaming support and how it can be accelerated to keep up with the adoption of 5G. And finally, the impact of 5G roaming on international IoT services and how network slicing will play a supportive role in future use cases.
