5G: Adding Value Beyond Connectivity with GSMA Open Gateway

In the 5G era, mobile operators have a tremendous opportunity to capitalise on the full potential of their networks. The GSMA Open Gateway initiative has captured widespread attention and received strong backing from more than 60% of global mobile operators, all united in their effort to create universal access to operator networks for developers and streamline data services for consumers. However, as the initiative advances, a crucial aspect to consider is how value will be created for operators in their go-to-market strategies.
