By: Venkatesh MahaleSenior Research Analyst, Worldwide Telecommunications, Courtney MunroeGroup Vice President of Worldwide Telecommunications Research, Ragupathy Vellappa


This IDC Market Perspective presents the 5G network trends, service strategy, market preparedness, and pre-commercial trials of leading telecom service providers and other vital information that will leave an impact on the 5G industry.

"From the industry point of view, as nobody seriously expects sustainable increment of revenue by offering only enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), enterprise solutions like smart factory, connected cars, smart grid, energy management, automated manufacturing, and healthcare types of business cases are the way to see any success. Also, from the capex spending perspective, operators are expected to maintain their capex intensity at a manageable 20–25% range over the 2020–2012 period to avoid any further strain on their balance sheet." — Venkatesh Mahale, research manager, Worldwide Telecommunications research at IDC
