5G

Global 2017-2027 Network Infrastructure Spending Package

Details

Pages: 175, 174 and 175

LTE networks are now firmly established in the U.S., Europe and the more developed markets in Asia Pacific. To meet the increasing demand for mobile bandwidth, many mobile operators are in the process of upgrading their LTE networks with features from the latest 3GPP releases and densifying the cellular architecture. The next major iteration of mobile networks will be 5G, the first versions of which will be deployed by late 2018.

Mobile operators will strive to provide sufficient capacity to meet the growing needs of the subscriber base, while minimizing unnecessary network spending on new network builds and network operating costs.

This package presents a forecast for the cost of building, deploying and operating LTE and 5G networks in the U.S., Europe and Asia Pacific regions beginning in 2017 and continuing through 2027. The build forecast is further detailed by mobile network component (RAN, front/backhaul, and core) and generation (3G/4G and 5G). In addition to the forecasts, the market studies provide detailed information on evolving mobile network architectures, 5G networks, and how the mobile operators in the U.S., Europe and Asia Pacific are progressing towards 5G.

The following three market studies are included in this package:
