Revolutionary Changes Ahead with Innovative 5G Uses
BELLEVUE, Wash., Nov. 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With 46 5G networks now deployed globally as of November 2019, 5G networks are expanding the value of wireless communications like never before. According to IHS Markit, up to 13.2 trillion worth of sales enablement and 22.3 million jobs will be supported by 5G by 2035. To illustrate the increasing value of 5G uses, 5G Americas today announced the publication of a white paper titled, 5G Service Innovation which identifies emerging services across a wide range of uses, including home broadband replacement, cloud gaming, smart utility grid enhancements, unmanned aerial vehicles, and others.
Chris Pearson, President, 5G Americas said, “5G is in the early phases of commercial deployment. However, we are already seeing a lot of work being done in some of the early use cases like the fixed wireless access and enhanced mobile broadband which are now a reality.”
The white paper presents a comprehensive introduction of the adoption and barriers in implementing 5G. It highlights detailed use cases that could serve as potential new revenue streams for enterprises and network providers. 5G Service Innovation highlights several key areas, including:
In addition, 5G Service Innovation explores how 5G will use a wide array of available low, mid, and high spectrum bands and support licensed, shared and unlicensed spectrum to deliver new services. Spectrum diversity enables 5G to scale from traditional wide area, to enterprise and to indoor/outdoor hotspot deployments.
Said Pearson, “Once the full commercial capabilities of 3GPP Release 15 and 16 are deploye 5G, use case opportunities will increase immensely as new services and applications emerge in a new hyper connected world.”
With 1.3 billion 5G subscribers predicted as early as 2023, according to Ovum, there have been at least 21 potential unique 5G use cases identified that will affect productivity and enhance economic activity across a broad range of industry sectors.
The 5G Services Innovation white paper identifies some of these promising use cases, such as:
Prashanth Hande from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and leader of the project stated, “5G technology will expand the value of mobile networks to take on a larger role than previous generations, empowering many new connected services across an array of world changing use cases.”
