The world’s leading cloud providers hastened their collective rise in mobile operator’s 5G networks and business models throughout 2020.

As software permeates every network layer and element and mobile network infrastructure increasingly evolves to adopt webscale architecture, hyperscalers are poised to soon become the most important vendors — and potential threats — for carriers at large.

Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and others made considerable gains in that regard this year, and 2021 is set to be even more consequential.

The convergence of mobile edge computing, virtualization, and automated orchestration of network management places almost everything at the feet, or in the data centers and services, provided by these cloud giants.
