Rakuten: A Greenfield Mobile Operator - Can Virtualisation Really Help a Greenfield Player? - ResearchAndMarkets.com

May 28, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 28, 2019--

The “Rakuten: a Greenfield Mobile Operator - Can Virtualisation really help a Greenfield Player?” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Rakuten is going to launch a fully virtualised 4G network in October this year and a 5G network in 2020. The network is expected to be more flexible, easier to maintain and upgrade.

Building a totally new type of mobile network is very challenging but could enable lower cost and capital spending. Rakuten’s mobile network will require half the investment of traditional telcos just to build the 4G part of the network. About 70 to 80% reduction in investment could be achieved when taking into account 5G investment.

How far the new concept will enable this new entrant in the Japanese mobile arena to disrupt the market?
