5G Statement by Detecon Expert Pawel Krysiak
We as Detecon assume that it will be 3-5 years before full virtualization in MNO networks is achieved.
Nevertheless, MNOs must act now, as virtualization is fundamental to all aspects of e2e 5G networks. In the future, end users will be able to be offered all types of KPIs and subsequently billed as a premium service. There is a lack of standardization, which is why standardized APIs are mandatory for third-party access to network resources. These standards still need to be revised. Most important is the input from early implementations and multi-vendor interoperability testing.
