IDC Whitepaper Addresses The Challenges Of Cost-Effectively Deploying 5G At Scale

One of the main hurdles to achieving this is the deployment, management and interconnection of physical and virtual assets that support these services. To address this challenge, IDC has released a new whitepaper, “Common Language Drives Customer Value for All Network Technology: 5G/MEC and Virtualized Networking,” which discusses how a common naming strategy improves the effectiveness of real-time network operations and key business management functions while also bringing increased awareness when launching and managing new network-based services.
