What is the 5G opportunity for enterprises?

Telecoms.com periodically invites expert third parties to share their views on the industry’s most pressing issues. In this piece Francesca Greane, Marketing, Content and Community Lead for5G World 2020, discusses the evolving 5G opportunity for enterprises today.

Over the past quarter of a century, mobile technology has transformed the way we communicate, the way we access information, the way we work – in so many respects, the way we live our lives. Now, as we enter a new decade, the next generation of connectivity is set to also fundamentally change the way we do business.

Yet, we remain right at the very start of this journey, with the first commercial 5G networks only just emerging. For enterprises, this is an awkward time. Clearly no one wants to miss out on the opportunity, but to date nothing is proven and plenty of questions remain unanswered.

Add to that the uncertainty that is currently being seen over the future of 5G in 2020. Indeed, Omdia 5G Practice Leader Dario Talmesio recently maintained that “we previously believed that 2020 was going to be the real year of 5G. This is no longer that case under the current circumstances”, whilst some in the industry – such as Belgian telco Proximus – are taking a definitive step back from their deployment plans. And, with companies around the globe looking to support their customers and countries during the coronavirus pandemic, telcos are being forced to prioritise investment and attention away from their 5G deployment plans.

This begs the question; where does 5G fit into the transformation plans of enterprises? With the changes we have seen in the world, has this changed the opportunity for businesses?
