Open for Debate: Is the Industry Moving Fast Enough on Standalone 5G?

In this latest webinar series, our analysts and industry experts talk more about Standalone 5G deployments in 2022 and going forward.

In many ways, the fundamental 5G value proposition rests on a deployment of Standalone 5G. Today’s non-Standalone deployments have delivered some incredible new services, but much of the 5G digital transformation promise relies on features and use cases that are only fully realized with Standalone 5G networks. And yet, even as we approach one billion 5G subscriptions globally, Standalone 5G network launches still number just over twenty.

The industry expects Standalone 5G deployments to accelerate in 2022 and going forward. Deployment momentum, however, will rest on the answer to some key questions.

  • Deployment: What has held up Standalone 5G deployments so far?
  • Support? What will drive new deployments? What does the industry need to do in order to support them?
  • Future Growth? Hype and promise aside, what will Standalone truly deliver? And, can that translate into new revenue growth?

GSMA Intelligence analysts and special guests answer these questions (and more) leveraging our own research, our latest work with operators, and insights from the ecosystem.

Speakers:

  • Mathew Iji, Director of Forecasting & Modelling
  • Radhika Gupta, Head of Data Acquisition, GSMA Intelligence
  • Tim Hatt, Head of Research and Consulting,  GSMA Intelligence
  • Zahid Ghadialy, Principal Analyst and Consultant, 3G4G

Open for Debate: Fixed Wireless Access vs. The Metaverse

In this webinar series, we explore key market trends to answer complex questions building on our research and insights from market experts. Our analysts and expert guest discussed the FWA and Metaverse opportunities, including a number of key questions. Find out more...

In an increasingly digital world, operators are faced with a myriad of new strategic priorities to pursue and business opportunities to explore. Deciding where to put their time and attention (not to mention investment funds) requires an understanding of technology trajectories, customer demands, monetization options, and regulatory environments, not to mention the opportunity costs of NOT pursuing some markets.

As 5G has moved from its infancy into relative maturity, the GSMA Intelligence team has been exploring two such opportunities – Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) and The Metaverse.

At first glance, the two spaces might seem completely different from one another. Fixed Wireless services have been offered for many years, with the core value proposition being simple connectivity. The Metaverse, on the other hand, is still an emerging concept which looks to leverage broadband connectivity to provide immersive experiences. Yet, both represent technology and service trends that operators need to understand, and opportunities they may want to pursue…or decide to actively ignore.

In this “Open for Debate” webinar series, GSMA Intelligence analysts explore key market trends to answer complex questions building on our research and insights from market experts. For this iteration, we discussed the FWA and Metaverse opportunities, including a number of key questions.

  • Why now. FWA services are not  new. The Metaverse is still very conceptual. Why are both getting so much focus in 2022?
  • Today’s FWA Opportunity. What’s the business case for 5G FWA? How (and when) can it improve an operator’s fixed broadband service offer?
  • Tomorrow’s Metaverse. What is the size of the potential Metaverse business opportunity? What parts of the opportunity can operators tap?
  • Risks, Regulations, and Dependencies. What could go wrong as operators pursue FWA or Metaverse strategies? How does regulation play a role?

In a world of infinite time and resources, operators would be able to pursue every potentially lucrative market opportunity that presents itself. In the real world, they need to make educated decisions about where to focus.

Speakers:

  • Peter Jarich, Head of GSMA Intelligence
  • Radhika Gupta, Head of Data Acquisition, GSMA Intelligence
  • Federico Agnoletto, Senior Economist, GSMA Intelligence
  • Kausik Ray Chaudhuri, Vice President, Technology, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

Analyst warns 5G alone unlikely to yield high rewards

LIVE FROM GSMA MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS AMERICAS 2018: The launch of 5G services will offer limited price upside compared to early 4G launches, GSMA Intelligence research director Pablo Iacopino (pictured) warned, as he urged operators to use the new network technology to offer a wider range of services.

Speaking at the GSMA Intelligence Americas Summit, Iacopino noted 5G was set to launch faster across many markets than the majority of the mooted services expected to drive future revenues.

“Immersive reality [for example] is far from an acceptable user experience,” he said. “The challenge for operators is to monetise 5G from the consumer segment, as faster speed on its own has minimal price uplift.”

He went on to note the increase in consumer prices following the launch of 4G was short-lived, especially in markets where launch prices for 4G were much higher than existing 3G services.

“4G will pay the bills for the next ten years which means 4G will account for the lion’s share of operator revenues,” he added.

The analyst noted operators should avoid selling 5G as a consumer proposition in its own, as it was unlikely to be a compelling offer. Instead, he recommended linking it to other products and services.

Potential technologies Iacopino expects to be supported (and potentially sold alongside 5G) include: IoT, 8K television, immersive reality, artificial intelligence and advanced gaming.

ZDNet: Nearly half of US mobile connections will be on 5G by 2025

The US is poised to lead the world in 5G adoption, according to a new report from the GSMA, a trade association that represents mobile network operators worldwide.

By 2025, 49 percent of all mobile connections in the US are forecast to be running on 5G, according to the Mobile Economy 2018 report. That’s compared to around 41 percent in Canada and 30 percent in Europe and key Asian markets.
