Infosys rolls out Private 5G-as-a-service globally

IT services and consulting organisation Infosys is launching its Private 5G-as-a-service offering to customers looking to diversify innovation use cases

With private 5G networks increasingly offering businesses across multiple sectors a new innovation outlet backed by further connectivity, Infosys is looking to help customers personalise the technology in line with particular business goals, on a subscription basis.

Bringing together wireless 5G expertise and its Private Network Management solution, Infosys aims to reduce the complexity of deployment by pre-integrating the 5G stack from multiple product vendors and test it against an array of use case requirements.

From here, enterprise businesses can utilise real-time insights relating to operation and performance.

Incorporating Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC), which can reduce network lag further by minimising the time required for data processing, the new service opens up the opportunity to develop high-bandwidth use cases, including IoT, remote-guided vehicles, drone-based real-time analytics and metaverse infrastructure.

“Today’s changing market dynamics, disruptive business models, and regulatory compliances need an effective strategy to accelerate digital transformation through 5G adoption,” said Dinesh Rao, executive vice-president, co-head of delivery at Infosys.

“We are leveraging our global 5G expertise to deliver reliable, secure, and cost-effective Private 5G as-a-service, with an agile delivery approach. This is aimed at supporting our clients in their transformation journey and help them derive business benefits.

“Our customisable solutions for vertical domains will help customers succeed in a competitive landscape. At the same time, we will continue to collaborate with industry bodies and consortiums.”

Mukesh Dialani, research vice-president, digital engineering and operational technology services at research body IDC, commented: “5G technology can accelerate business transformation goals for enterprises.

“The Infosys Private 5G as-a-service brings together years of industry expertise through pre-integrated verticalised business solutions, modular architecture, and an extensive partner ecosystem to help enterprises evolve their existing operating environments and tap into future business opportunities.

“Beyond increased cost benefits for enterprises across industries, the solution is scalable and is also offered on a flexible as-a-service model.”

Mark Colaluca, vice-president/general manager, Communication Technology Group at strategic partners HPE, added: “Enterprises see Private 5G as an enabler for their digital transformation, and the Infosys approach of vertically aligned pre-integrated business solutions can accelerate 5G adoption.

“HPE and Infosys are working together by combining HPE’s Private 5G solutions with Infosys as-a-Service offering and pre-integrated vertical use cases for faster customer value realisation.”

Bengaluru-headquartered Infosys has been aiding digital transformation efforts in over 50 countries.
