"A prolonged investment cycle gives operators the advantage of having a longer time to develop strategies to optimise and futureproof their capital investments."


Operators are facing long 5G deployment cycles due to the scale of their roll-outs, the complexity of 5G technology and geopolitical issues. This is resulting in multi-phased deployments for many and a potential increase in capex. Operators should consider how to increase the efficiency of each single phase of their deployments, while maximising asset value.
