The world is looking at 5G as the next big thing. It is 10 times faster than 4G which can create opportunities for innovation for all kinds of industries. Smart cities, automated vehicles, intelligent manufacturing, and the entire Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem can be fully realised by 5G.
Growing interest in 5G adoption is also driving new demands for testing environments. Such environments allow businesses to prove the viability and value of new 5G applications and services. However, there are only a handful of companies that can provide this capability.
Lifeway Singapore (LWS), an information technology service provider, is making this possible with its global 5G Cyber Range solution. The solution provides customers with a secure and flexible testing environment for their 5G solutions. By using Epsilon’s colocation and interconnection services, LWS can deploy and scaled-up their infrastructure to meet enterprise 5G testing scenarios.
Highly Customisable Enterprise IT Solutions
Enabling a 5G Future Through Partnering
LWS believes in synergy between partnership and team diligence in providing its products and services to customers. It has a firm belief in partnering with proven, industry-leading technology companies. Together with, they can deliver solutions that will resolve its customers’ business challenges.
LWS’s vision is to be the most trusted IT, managed solutions, telecommunication, and application solutions consulting advisor and partner to its customers. Its goal is to meet the various IT needs of its customers to enable them to focus on their core strengths and services. LWS saw an opportunity to better serve the needs of its customers by providing a testing service for 5G deployments to enable innovation.
Reliable Networking to Drive 5G Applications
LWS needed to keep up with its customers’ demands as more businesses are exploring the use case of 5G applications. However, building its own technologies and networks to fit with this demand is too costly and inefficient. It can also add new complexity to their operations which means the need to bring in new resources and expertise.
LWS needed a partner that could provide the network infrastructure to facilitate 5G testing, without causing headaches in its own business. It also need a flexible set of interconnection services that are readily available to connect to other markets and new customers.
As one of the early pioneers, LWS is looking to capture new opportunities to grow in the 5G space. It needed an edge over its competitors before the race begins.
