With the advent of the 5G Standalone (5G SA) era, 5G Service Providers (SPs) have the opportunity to increase their revenues from the segments of the enterprise market requiring real-time or near real-time wireless communications. In the past, 3G and 4G wireless network performance were based on best effort. Some networks differentiated themselves with coverage and/or speed, but it was still a best-effort network, with no guarantees of specific performance levels or service. The 3GPP 5G mobile network specifications have the features to deliver performance guarantees. A 5G SP can now increase revenues from the enterprise market by offering premium services and performance with guaranteed Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
