    Having worked on enterprise applications and systems for close to four 
decades, Infosys brings in tremendous understanding of the opportunities and 
challenges enterprises face on their digital transformation journey. One 
significant challenge faced is the need to keep pace with innovation in their 
ecosystem and the ability to quickly prototype ideas. The global network of 
Infosys 5G Living Labs are designed to help enterprises imagine and curate game 
changing ideas driven by 5G, and rapidly prototype them to life. The labs 
combine the best of Infosys emerging technologies expertise in areas like IoT, 
AR, VR and AI, unique design thinking driven approaches and a diverse partner 
ecosystem that is deeply invested in 5G technologies. Enterprise adoption of 5G 
is key to monetizing networks for communication services providers and Infosys 
Living Labs enables that by providing an ecosystem to incubate offerings and 
deploy at scale.

    Communication Service Providers (CSPs) will also benefit from Infosys' 
expertise in emerging technologies to support self-organized intelligent 
networks, dynamic agile operations and capabilities, to build enriched 
experiences for enterprises together with a wide ecosystem of partners. Infosys 
solutions such as the Smart Network Assurance platform [ 
] will help in pivoting from break-fix operations to proactive and predictive 
operations using AI and ML based self-healing technologies. Infosys is also 
building reference solutions based on open source platforms and tools that will 
enable continuous delivery of software using Software-Defined Networking and 
Network Function Virtualization principles.

"5G is opening an array of opportunities for CSPs and Enterprises in the 
digital era. Infosys' suite of 5G offerings are powered by our extensive 
experience of working with major telecom service providers and enterprises 
globally in transforming their business and technology landscape. Our expertise 
in areas such as SDN-NFV, Media OTT Platforms and IoT, together with industry 
collaborations among network solution providers, network OEMS and CSPs will 
help customers maximize their 5G potential to navigate their next."

    Dustin Kehoe, Service Director, GlobalData PLC, said, "5G is not just an 
evolution of cellular standards, it will also enable various new sets of 
applications, some low latency, others high on throughput to improve employee 
productivity or external customer engagement. However, the technology is 
emerging and industry collaboration across the ecosystem is required to unlock 
new innovation to co-create use cases. Professional services and unwavering 
commitment to open source solutions to drive best of breed multi-vendor 
environments, are some of the important considerations for being successful 
with 5G."
