Thanks I’m looking for real time use case example and reference

In an interview to ET’s Danish Khan and Romit Guha, Batra said the ongoing 5G trials would be a waste if they are only to test the speed and latency of the networks, rather than developing use cases for enterprises.

Majority of them discussed during 4G launch as well.
For eg… eMBMS which was failed.
Problem is revenue generator use cases are very limited.
Post covid industry is looking for cost reduction.

Yes but slowly and steady all will be okay in future.
We may have more dangerous virus than covid in future.
But parallel revolution will also come in people’s lives.

5G Use Cases wherein satellite access networks have a role.

Network slicing: Top 10 use cases to target

In recently Ericsson report, Network slicing: Top 10 use cases to target, Ericsson and Arthur D. Little uncovered the answers to this question. To do so we analyzed more than 70 external market reports about the global digitalization of industries. As part of that work, we also reviewed more than 400 digital use cases from 70 industries and took a deeper look into one or two use cases in each industry.


For more information about how to capture the emerging 5G opportunities, please visit Ericsson network slicing web page.

Finally, seems the World is “waking up”. :raised_hands:

Like China abandoning cases like robot surgery 5G use case, so we all can finally move on to real world use of 5G rather than the stories that were spun to justify the investment. :wink:
