5G technology is considered the foundation that comprises the world telecommunications infrastructure for the next years. Many applications and web services have already moved to the public cloud; 5 G infrastructure could also easily be built and grown in the same manner utilizing the public cloud provider regions and edge services to reduce the latency accessing the applications, which have been one of the driving factors of 5G technology. With tightening budgets, as a service, “aaS” allows organizations to consolidate and more effectively utilize their resources, control costs, and align those costs with consumers of the resources and also provide the organization with the ability to easily adapt to and deliver services that in a seamless and automated fashion. No doubt the technical calculations are correct about the 5G future, but what about the financial expectations? Not to worry, when the other companies see that one or two are committed to rapidly achieving success, they tend to get onboard faster. The startup organizations will benefit from the experience, maturity, reliability, security, and performance of cloud providers with the broadest and deepest choices for computing, storage, and networking to maximize the performance of new applications
