Whale Cloud unveils 5G Operation Map at India Mobile Congress 2019. 5G is the catalyst to accelerate the digital society transformation. In the 5G era, operators will be the technical center of the whole society’s digital transformation. Whale Cloud has developed the 5G Operation Map to guide CSPs to better operate the 5G network and business, speed up the returns of 5G investments, and improve core competence.
Steven Cho, Chief Digital Consultant, Whale Cloud International, said, “We believe the development of 5G will have 3 different stages:The first stage is to provide 5G connectivity services to establish the connection of everything. In the second stage, the business model is to monetize the dynamic network for different vertical industries through network slicing technology. In the last stage, the business model is the platform economy. In this stage operator could leverage their existing dynamic network, cloud computing, edge computing, AI and IT capabilities to build the ecosystem for many service providers to serve the digital society.”
