As enterprises are not primarily interested in deploying 5G connectivity per se, SIs must provide end-to-end connectivity solutions. These include vertical-specific applications and security mechanisms that give enterprises the much-needed assurance of a protected network.
To offer this in an attractive pricing structure, System Integrators must do everything they can to lower upfront investment barriers for enterprises and fully embrace a Network-as-a-Service or even Business Outcome-as-a-Service model, Leo Gergs, Senior Analyst for Private Networks and Enterprise Connectivity at ABI Research, said.
HPE, Capgemini Engineering, and NTT ranked as implementation leaders among SIs.
HPE has a robust ecosystem reach with a growing number of partnerships across different domains. This spans well beyond the traditional telco world. HPE relies on its own networking components, enabling the ultimate deployment at an implementing enterprise site to be exceptionally smooth.
Capgemini Engineering is well situated when it comes to existing enterprise cellular deployments. Its extensive focus on different enterprise verticals puts it in a leading position to execute its vision.
According to IDC’s Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) 5G Enterprise Services Forecast 2022–2026, 5G services revenue will grow from $106 million in 2021 to $8 billion in 2026, a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of +137 percent.
