The advent of 5G promises a new era of speed, throughput and bandwidth for cellular networks, however the world of telecommunications and licensing faces several challenges in preparation for its arrival. Although wireless technology has continued to evolve over the years, traditional SEP licensing models have seemingly been left behind and may no longer be adequate to address the needs of companies seeking to implement 5G into their products. As the Internet of Things becomes an increasingly integral part of products across market areas, more and more companies of all industries and sizes will need to invest in 5G technology to become part of the network.

The growing number of players and technology complexity involved with 5G has created an unprecedented need for simpler and more transparent frameworks for licensing, patent pools and standards that can be scaled across diverse market segments. Existing methods require significant investments of time, budget and technological and legal depth that no longer suit the broad array of companies that will be utilizing the new technology.
