5G’s full realization still requires efforts in several areas, like telco cloud, standards in the route to disaggregation, tighter engagements with verticals. 5G will support customers and industry for the next decade and beyond. In parallel, the ground for a next generation is laid, which needs to meet societal and customer requirements. Clarity about a 6G vision and driver is required. Activities like Green Telco will span both, 5G and 6G.
