There is no doubt that 2019 will be remembered as the year of first commercial 5G network rollouts and services. Yet, despite unabated trials and massive commercial deployments, the number of challenges associated with 5G continues to rise. Complex network architecture choices, limited availability of user devices, and investments needed to build 5G networks are just a few of those challenges. However, the long-term life-changing opportunities of 5G outweigh the challenges. These opportunities lie in the new technologies and features that allow service providers to make the most out of their infrastructure. Features like massive MIMO, network slicing, multi-access edge computing (MEC) and public cloud -- as well as innovation in transport networks -- are the most notable. Although service providers are facing a number of strategic considerations for deploying 5G networks, many have already begun to solve them with the help of leading 5G suppliers, including Ericsson, Huawei, Nokia, and ZTE.
