How long do you expect it to take for the 5G market to reach maturity, or to begin bearing fruit for Juniper?

You have telecom providers talking about deployments that will happen this year. I think the real big deployments will start more toward next year and even the year after. It will mostly be in the U.S. and in certain parts of Asia. The preparatory work for 5G is starting today. 5G is inherently a cloud-native architecture. The services that will be delivered over 5G, the back-end functions are inherently virtualized and need a distributed data center architecture that will deliver these services to the end user. It's incumbent upon these operators to start the investment in cloudifying their network today in anticipation of 5G. We all know 5G is going to drive incredible amounts of capacity in the network. It's going to result in low latency, and that requires special build-outs, and we're starting to see some of the projects in anticipation of 5G in these areas come to fruition today.
