With careful planning and cross-organization alignment, 5G rollouts should go smoothly.
Of course, project planners should always be ready to deal with unexpected issues that might surface. 5G implementation challenges cited by IT and network decision-makers during the focus group included lack of training, multilayered approval processes, and complications arising from the integration of 5G with outdated infrastructure.
Yet, those are common hurdles that experienced project managers know how to overcome, and that business partners like T-Mobile for Business and our 5G Advanced Network Solutions can help avoid.
And the benefits are well worth the effort. In a T-Mobile for Business survey, increased efficiency was deemed the top benefit—cited by 80 percent of respondents—followed by improved productivity (70 percent) and improved processes (69 percent).
As more companies enjoy success with wide scale 5G deployment, experts like David Chan expect even more “Aha!” moments. “Once you see companies realizing some of the power of technology out there,” he says, “I think you'll see a lot more forward thinking.”
