Podcast: Arvin Singh, Managing Director, 5G & Edge Innovation, Verizon Business

In an increasingly connected world, the telecommunications industry is positioning itself as the ideal partner for companies, industries and sectors looking to latch on to the digital revolution. Through the evolution of cellular standards and network technology, use cases are popping up from well-documented sectors such as industrial campuses and connected vehicles to new and exciting verticals.

Verizon and its enterprise unit, Verizon Business, have been bullish in their development and roll-out of innovative IoT and enterprise connectivity solutions; from private networks to different on-prem networking scenarios. Their research focus on Edge, IoT, and 5G solutions has resulted in several successful deployments across different sectors and settings such as ports, factories, stadia, campuses and vehicles, to name a few.

Arvin Singh heads up the Innovation and Research team for 5G and Edge at Verizon Business and has an ambitious view of the applications of 5G in the enterprise. However, he is quick to mention it is not only connectivity that plays a key role in the successful implementation of 5G networks for businesses. For example, working alongside the client to make onboarding, deployment and maintenance of the network is crucial to making it deliver the ROI expected, and truly disrupt the enterprise as intended.

Finally, Arvin digs deeper into the world of opportunities that 5G enables for the enterprise client. Just like 4G helped change the world by unlocking the full potential of the smartphone and creating the application ecosystem we depend on for so much today, 5G has the capability to drive physical and process innovations into the heart of the modern enterprise.
