The 5G movement is in steep ascent. Cisco has had over 100 active engagements with global customers on 5G. 40 service providers are actively trialing and deploying Cisco 5G Now solutions. The company continues to mark major milestones in helping its customers realize the benefits of a true cloud-scale mobile internet. 

Service providers face significant financing pressures as they prepare for this 5G revolution. Cisco's recent Mobile VNI Forecast shows that by 2022, the average 5G connection (22 GB/month) will generate nearly three times more traffic on the networks than the average 4G connection (8 GB/month). Service providers must expand their networks to support this growth. At the same time, they must invest in new 5G services to stay competitive. Cisco is planning to commit $5 Billion in 5G funding via Cisco financing over the next three years to help its customers succeed with their network transitions to 5G.

The company is unveiling a host of new products and solutions at its stand in Hall 3 #E330. Demonstrating innovations across its business, Cisco is ready to help its customers grow revenue, launch new services and better manage the 12 billion networked connections expected by 20221.
