The GVF - EMP Partnership in Association with 5G World, IoT World and Smart Transportation & Mobility
5G is in process of transition and its realisation is both a journey and a destination. Whilst the 5G standardisation process is still ongoing and there are continuing uncertainties, the technology is progressing from having been an unclearly characterised and poorly focused vision of the future of wireless communications towards the delivery of a plan for actual infrastructure – premised on the current emergence of an active ecosystem with various 5G capabilities being established and with a range of roadmaps for trials, testbeds and deployments – that is sufficiently progressed to facilitate the first commercial deployments in, for example, the United Kingdom by 2020-ish, and to support (according to the Ericsson Mobility Report) an estimated half a billion 5G subscriptions by the end of 2022.
Satellite - an Integrated Technology & Service
Whilst the future development of the global digital economy is indeed underpinned by the success of 5G deployment as a “destination”, we need to be very clear about the nature of 5G evolution as a “journey”, particularly with reference to the implications of that journey for the satellite industry.
Given that some analyses of the roll-out of future cellular networks have it that 5G networks will NOT be the norm anytime soon and that in reality 4G and LTE will continue along a gradual evolutionary path towards 5G, and that by 2025 the majority of the world's networks will have only just got to that high functioning LTE level, but will still not yet be 5G, there are some big questions for the satellite industry.
