Monetisation platforms for network slicing: long-term evolution will drive short-term investments

John Abraham Principal Analyst, Research

"A key issue for CSPs is that, unlike in the past, they are having to invest in new monetisation systems without fully knowing what use cases they need to support."

Network slicing has emerged as a primary enabler of 5G use cases and is expected to drive new revenue for communications service providers (CSPs). The realisation of such use cases will not happen in the short term, but CSPs are investigating and planning for the support systems that will help them to effectively monetise them.

This report provides:

  • the essential characteristics of monetisation platforms for network slicing-enabled use cases
  • the common architecture models for monetisation systems for network slicing-specific deployments
  • information about how the evolution of network slicing will affect monetisation systems.
