6/9/2017, 10:38 AM (Source: GlobeNewswire)

Dublin, June 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "5G Plans and Investments - Approaching the Starting Blocks" report to their offering.

This study examines the current state of 5G. Current key trials have been in-depth analysed. Public results and strategies lying behind are highlighted.

Investments and deadlines for 5G are also presented at world wide level.


- 5G has not been fully standardised yet. But 5G is set to become a reality by 2020 and, for some MNOs by 2018. MNOs and equipment manufacturers are all in the starting blocks and trialling 5G.
- MNOs are trialling 5G in a wide range of frequency bands mostly ranging from 3 to 80 GHz in a trade-off between technical feasibility and consumer/use cases needs based on propagation characteristics. The most trialled bands are the 28 and the 15 GHz.
- Very high data rates are expected and 35 Gbps data rates and above have been demonstrated.
- 5G deployment requires massive investments. Billions of euros of both public and private funding are needed to be at the forefront of 5G in the 2 years to come.
