Mobile data traffic continues to grow at an unabated pace. Equipment suppliers continue to push the technology envelope to ensure service providers can manage the exponential data growth and improve speed/coverage/capacity/quality of their networks. The constantly changing and increasingly demanding end-user expectations provide opportunities for the equipment vendors to differentiate their solutions while new entrants and service provider consolidation continue to pressure equipment prices downward.

To take advantage of the opportunities in this new data-driven market, component manufacturer, equipment vendors, service providers, and financial institutions needs to answer critical business questions including:

  • What is the difference between LTE and 5G?
  • Is there a business case for 5G?
  • Will adoption happen at a faster or slower pace than previous technology shifts?
  • What are the use cases that will characterize the market over the next five years?
  • How will the architecture change?
  • How will adoption vary by region?
  • How will 5G impact the mix between small cells and macro base station?
  • Will operators initially focus more on Millimeter Wave technologies or Sub 6 GHz deployments?
  • How will ongoing architectural shifts including C-RAN/D-RAN impact 5G RAN deployments?
  • Will virtualized RAN impact the market over the near-term?
  • What role will Massive MIMO play with 5G NR?
  • Will 5G impact the demand for WLAN?
  • How will 5G impact the overall infrastructure market?
  • Operators will have multiple options to connect the RAN to the core network — how will they do this?
  • How will the use cases impact the ratio between 5G RAN and core investments over the forecast period?

To answer these and other important questions, Dell’Oro Group delivers both quarterly reports and 5-year forecasts on the Mobile Radio Access Network market.
