Santa Clara, CA – August 2, 2018
– Collinear, developer of ultra-high capacity, over-the-air connectivity solutions for transforming network communications, today announced the availability of “5G – The Enterprise Opportunity,” a new white paper produced in conjunction with Chetan Sharma Consulting, one of the most experienced global strategy firms on 5G.
Where the emergence of 4G brought broadband to the forefront of economic growth and innovation, and created 95 billion-plus dollar businesses, 5G is expected to accelerate this evolution, generating trillions of dollars of global economic output and millions of new jobs, while transforming industries in ways we can’t imagine, and creating new ones.
5G will enable enterprises to rethink the nature of their perimeter with their customers, suppliers, and sources of value. How will enterprises take advantage of these new capabilities in not only their respective industries but more fundamentally, how will they define their place in it? Will 5G enable new business models for the enterprise? Will 5G lead to new revenue streams? Who will be the winners and losers? One thing is for certain, those who wait for others to figure it out are bound to the annals of historic missteps.
With an introduction and commentary from Helen Ojha, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President of Strategy, Sharma delves into the current and emerging issues and opportunities 5G brings, and what impact they foretell for enterprises.
