Gartner: 66% of organisations will deploy 5G by 2020

January 02, 2019 / Ben Moore

66% of organisations have plans to deploy 5G by 2020, according to a new 5G use case and adoption survey by Gartner. Organisations expect 5G networks to mainly be used for Internet of Things (IoT) communications and video, with operational efficiency being the key driver.“In terms of 5G adoption, end-user organisations have clear demands and expectations for 5G uses,” says Gartner senior research director Sylvain Fabre.“However, one major issue that 5G users face is the lack of readiness of telecommunications providers. Their 5G networks aren’t available or capable enough for the needs of organisations.”To fully exploit 5G, a new network topology is required, including new network elements such as edge computing, core network slicing and radio network densification.
