According to a report from 451 Research titled, "Telco Study on 5G Reveals Industry Hopes and Fears: From Energy Costs to Edge Computing Transformation", 5G will be "the most impactful and difficult network upgrade ever faced by the telecom industry."
The report, sponsored by Vertiv, is based on an in-depth survey of more than 100 global telecom decision makers with visibility into 5G deployment plans. It not only outlines the "hopes and fears" of telecom operators on the cusp of a new era; it makes clear that the transformation has already begun. Twelve percent of survey participants have begun deploying 5G in 2019 with an additional 86 percent planning to deploy 5G services by 2021.
