In 5G networks, while there are enhanced services for mobile consumers, there will also be a wider range of services for so-called ‘B2B’ players, from a wide range of verticals.

They seek to take advantage of new capabilities, such as ultra-low latency, the ability to connect to a much greater number of devices in a given area, and so on. The wireless connectivity offered by 5G will allow them to use such capabilities to deliver new functionality and to enable more effective service activation, control and management – in a dynamic environment.

While many such needs will be met through 5G private networks, many will also be met through partnerships with mobile network operators. As such, business relationships need to be created – so it should be no surprise that traditional OSS / BSS tasks, such as “service order management” will be fundamental to the successful monetization of these service needs and relationships.
