At the recent Philippine Digital Convention 2019, PLDT Enterprise formally announced its Smart 5G Alliance.
Composed of 11 other organizations as pioneer members, the said alliance works to further support the PLDT Group’s 5G strategy. In line with the PLDT Group’s 5G strategy, PLDT Enterprise continues to pioneer efforts that seek to accelerate the country’s 5G adoption.
Pioneering members of the 5G Alliance include Cisco, Ericsson, Fujitsu, Huawei, Microsoft, Nokia, Palo Alto, SMS Global Technologies, Araneta Center, the Ateneo de Manila University, and the Clark Development Corporation. Through such partnership, PLDT Enterprise aims to further fast-track 5G adoption across verticals, and in turn, throughout the nation.
The announcement of the alliance was among highlights at the Philippine Digital Convention 2019, together with 5G, IoT, AI, PLDT’s expanded SD-WAN, and next-generation cybersecurity solution. Given the growing demand for big data and real-time data analysis, the selected products are said to be imperative in responding to today’s most pertinent needs — while also setting up businesses to take on the future.
