Nokia and ABI Research: Panel Discussion

CSPs have a sense of urgency in getting to 5G Standalone (5G SA). Many begin with 5G NSA, though increasingly some go straight from 4G to 5G SA. All need to plan their move, influenced by technical readiness and market conditions. How should CSPs approach their transition to 5G SA?

Key topics include:

  • Where are we now? Did we expect to be here?
  • Triggers: Technical, market, ecosystem
  • How to transition to 5G SA
  • The 5G core’s critical role


  • Fran Heeran, Senior Vice President, Cloud and Network Services – Core Networks, Nokia
  • Dimitris Mavrakis, Senior Research Director, ABI Research
