End: Wednesday 15 July 2020 4:00 pm

Venue: Online Webinar

Webinar Summary

Mobile operators are making huge investments in 5G, and are evaluating how to build the Telco Edge. However, it is unclear how operators will realise returns on their investment with the traditional data subscription business model.

In this webinar, STL Partners will discuss the range of business models that are available to telcos in the enterprise market, demonstrating these through case studies and real-life examples.  STL will leverage the learnings of its research programme and focus on vertical industries and the role of 5G in manufacturing, healthcare, energy, and transport & logistics.
