Strategy Analytics lays out seven challenges that could be ‘show stoppers’ for the major markets that Service Providers are looking to address over the next decade.
Both generic capabilities like Security and Bursty Traffic Optimization as well as the specific requirements for IoT Services, Fixed Mobile Convergence, Cloud, Network Slicing, 5G and 4K Mobile Video create significant challenges that cannot be addressed at scale today. Even massive additional bandwidth will not be enough to solve these problems - new approaches are needed and work is just beginning.
This report reviews these challenges and the specific requirements needed for Next Generation Broadband networks to deliver what is needed for the multi-billion dollar markets of the next decade.
Also see Video from BBWF 2016 where Sue Rudd of Strategy Analytics speaks to Scott Bicheno about the challenges that next-generation broadband is facing.
