Introduction

In this report, Ovum assesses the main features of the B2C, B2B2x, and B2B services that will be supported by 5G; the changes in the partner ecosystem these new services will require; and consumer attitudes toward service usage and payment.

Highlights

  • Finally, 5G is here. Its fundamentals promise CSPs new sources of revenue, new opportunities, and new ways to delight their customers: 100× bandwidth, 10× throughput, 10× reduction in latency, 1000× partners.
  • These are normally organized around three core services, known as enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) and fixed-wireless access (FWA), ultra-high reliability and low latency (URLLC), and massive (IoT) connectivity (MTC).
  • To achieve the full benefits of scalability and business agility, operators will need to adopt DevOps and CI/CD models as well as make the transition to microservices.
