Providing a customizable E2E 5G solutions requires a proven track record of system integration capabilities. System integrators (SIs) are well positioned to fill this spot for several reasons.
ABI Research’s white paper "The Role of System Integrators for Enterprise 5G" examines the role SIs play in deploying 5G for three distinct verticals:
These sectors show the most interest in private cellular connectivity and are therefore driving the market.
