Cutting through the hype to uncover the real opportunities – and challenges – shaping 5G networks

Resources for 5G

Making sense of 5G

Real Wireless is at the heart of the evolution to 5G. We are advising governments and their agencies about the techno-economic models that must underpin the business case for future networks. We have deep technical knowledge of the densification strategies that are paving the path to 5G. We are leading advisors to Enterprise, helping to separate the hype from the very real opportunities associated with the new services and capabilities 5G technologies will deliver.

Real Wireless – supporting the monetisation of future networks.

We continue to play a leading role identifying the value propositions that drive the direction of technical specifications and the all-important business case that will be essential in generating investment for 5G development.This experience puts us in a unique position among wireless advisors. We have the vision, technical expertise and experience to see 5G in context and to assess, sometimes critically, official policy or industry claims. The resources on this page include overviews and analysis of key technologies and background to the many initiatives forging the path to 5G.

Regulation: progressive or obstructive?

Regulation of telecommunications is not, as some operators may feel, a chance to hold back progress. At least it shouldn’t be. Then again, there have been many examples that, if they became the norm, would genuinely give telecommunications regulation a bad name....
