Voice over 5G (Vo5G) Market, 2023 - An Essential Component for Next Generation Apps and Services


Dublin, Aug. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Voice over 5G (Vo5G) Market: Smart Phones, Wearable Technology, IoT, Virtual Reality, Robotics, and Teleoperation 2018 - 2023" report has been added to's offering.

This report evaluates the Vo5G market including companies, technologies, strategies, and solutions. The report assesses the market potential and outlook for many Vo5G supported applications and services including enhancements to existing solutions as well as completely new user experiences and use case scenarios. It also evaluates how 5G will support various next generation immersive apps and services such as Virtual Reality. The report includes detailed Vo5G market forecasts for all major equipment, application, and industry segments for the 2018 to 2023 period.

Fifth Generation (5G) cellular will enable many new advanced functions such as significantly greater capacity, dramatically lower latency, and optimized support for Internet of Things (IoT) networks. This will support enhanced mobile broadband, ultra-reliable communications, and massive IoT deployment. 5G will also introduce the ability to implement network slicing for dynamic network allocation, enforceable SLA/QoE, and network as a service. It will also represent a flexible and economically viable alternative to fixed network back-haul as well as an alternative to WiFi.

Despite the industry emphasis on many new data-related capabilities materializing with 5G, voice will remain a critical function, but will diminish in importance as a stand-alone service. While 5G will support Ultra High Definition (UHD) audio communications, streaming video and ultra-clear voice communication are not anticipated to be the most important overall economic impacts of the technology. Instead, the main value proposition will be Voice over 5G (Vo5G) embedded with many advanced applications and services including Unified Communications (UC), Real-time Communications (including WebRTC), Telepresence, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality (VR), and Mixed Reality, tele-robotics control, and various IoT enabled applications and services.

The Vo5G market will inherently support voice/audio as a key component of communications for a wide variety of apps and services for many consumer, enterprise, and industrial solutions. Vo5G market evolution will involve a few important considerations in terms of network topology, equipment and software upgrades and integration. Most options involve evolution from Voice over LTE (VoLTE) to Voice over New Radio (VoNR) as 5G will be based on new RF via millimeter wave propagation.

While each of these architectures has unique challenges, all of them require network readiness of IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) within the carrier's network. In addition, each migration path will lead to substantially enhanced voice capabilities via enhanced LTE and VoNR solutions. This will lead to important advances for integrated UHD voice communications as well as next generation voice-based user interfaces in support of immersive technologies and IoT enabled apps and services. Vo5G will also replace VoLTE as a preferred method of vocal/auditory communication as well as act as the input medium for a wide variety of user interfaces, many of which currently rely upon WiFi.
