The evolution of the 5G New Radio and Next Generation Core is a major driver for innovation. By introducing three new improved characteristics - low latency, distribution, and through-put - new business opportunities are able to be addressed. 3GPP is the main standards body where 5G is being addressed with Release 15 with expected completion in May of 2018. As standards evolve, 5G technology will transform networks and operations in new ways. Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) is one area in which technology and operational models will change.
