GSA predicts over 270 5G networks by 2025 in the first Executive Committee report “The Road to 5G”.
19th November 2015: A new report from GSA (Global mobile Suppliers Association) “The Road to 5G: Drivers, Applications, Requirements and Technical Development” published today predicts over 270 5G networks will be deployed by 2025 and points to two significant trends that are driving the wireless industry to develop 5G network technology. These are the explosive growth in demand for wireless broadband services, which require faster and higher capacity networks to deliver video and other content-rich services and the predicted massive growth of Internet of Things (IoT) applications – some of which will require ultra-low latency and need highly reliable IP connectivity.
The report, from the GSA Executive Committee of Ericsson, Huawei and Qualcomm, is the first of its kind and will be updated twice a year. The report includes forecasts for ‘early’ 5G network deployments and fully standardised 5G networks as well as the results of an on-line survey of GSA registered web-site users who were asked to define what are the key drivers for 5G and what network performance criteria must be met to constitute a commercial 5G network deployment.
