NTT, a global technology and business solutions provider, just launched the NTT’s Private 5G platform (P5G), the first globally available private LTE/5G Network-as-a-Service platform. With a complete end-to-end stack of services that go beyond the network, NTT P5G helps chief information officers and chief digital officers leverage the benefits of private 5G to solve business problems and innovate to keep pace with the future of an enterprise.
NTT P5G leverages design thinking principles to integrate security, control, and privacy by design, providing performance and cost benefits with a clear ROI. Running on a cloud-native architecture, the platform can be delivered via the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge. The platform is pre-integrated with leading network and software partners, allowing enterprises to secure, scale and segment their network flexibly. With patent-pending MicroSlicing technology, NTT P5G allows mission-critical apps to leverage the advantages of private 5G.
Fueling enterprise digital transformation with cloud-based economics and automation is at the heart of NTT’s vision for private 5G. NTT is focused on driving the global acceleration of private 5G to meet the fast-evolving needs of enterprises across industries, including automotive, manufacturing, healthcare, and retail to create unprecedented alignment of data, connectivity, security, and communications.
NTT appointed wireless industry leader Shahid Ahmed as EVP of New Ventures and Innovation to pioneer the Private 5G service portfolio, drive digital transformation outcomes for clients, and deepen ecosystem collaboration. Ahmed brings over 25 years of technology experience focused on business transformation, including key leadership roles at Accenture, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Sprint. In addition, he is an appointed advisor to the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
“Global enterprises are looking for a single private 5G solution to deploy across multiple countries,” Ahmed said. “They need one truly private network, one point of accountability, one management platform, and one solution partner that eliminates all the major friction points across the entire global footprint of the enterprises. Our NTT P5G offering supports many of the CXO requirements today, and we will continue to invest in P5G as enterprise adoption evolves.”
NTT group companies are jointly accelerating the adoption of open and virtualized 5G solutions globally in collaboration with ecosystem stakeholders. This comprehensive approach enables NTT to provide a full suite of digital transformation services.
