Market Overview

United States 5G Market Report 2018: The New Base Telecommunication Architecture -


The "The
New Base Telecommunication Architecture - 5G"
report has been
added to's offering.

This comprehensive report is going to discuss first the history of
cellular development in the US and describe in some detail how we have
moved from step to step along the path. It will then move into a
discussion of 5G from many viewpoints, including objectives, frequency
plans, architecture, relationship to IoT and Autonomous Vehicles,
Carriers involved, phones, etc.

This report will examine in detail, the possibility of much greater
competition for high-speed Internet (and other fixed services) enabled
thru 5G fixed wireless. Next it will investigate who the major players
(and, as appropriate, their individual strategies for 5G) are in each
aspect of 5G - carriers, network equipment vendors, phone vendors, and
modem (chip set) vendors. The final main section of the report will deal
with specific forecasts for 5G in the US and the impact of those
forecasts on overall network requirements.

We have become used to the introduction of new generations of cellular
service to mean service that is faster and that offers more
capabilities. For example the move from 3G to 4G brought more speed and
a mobile broadband (e.g., laptops) capability. However, the coming
conversion to 5G will be completely different; it will also bring more
speed and greater capabilities, but there will be so much more speed and
the capabilities will be so much greater that it will introduce a
completely new telecommunications architecture, and it will introduce
the possibility of national high-speed Internet competition based on
fixed wireless. The transition will be like going from a covered wagon
to a Cadillac Escalade. They both get you from point to point, but there
is no real comparison.

5G is going to be much more than an incremental improvement from 4G LTE;
it is going to be an entirely new architecture that brings dramatic
capabilities and features. Its combination of speed, low latency, high
availability, and capacity of huge quantities of low cost connections
will make services possible that were only talked about before.

Those forecasts include:

  • US Traffic - Total and Mobile
  • US Mobile Carriers Forecast Growth
  • 5G Phones Availability and Sources
  • IoT 5G Impact
  • Autonomous Vehicles 5G Impact
  • Over Build/ Cross Boundary Forecast
  • US 5G Penetration Forecast by Major Service
  • 5G Overall Timeline
