Enterprises will spend USD9 billion on private LTE/5G networks over the next 5 years, laying an important foundation for industrial transformation. This report examines the private LTE/5G networks market and establishes a framework to analyse the opportunity.
This report analyses current and emerging deployment models for private LTE/5G networks. We examine the rationale for private LTE/5G network adoption, the network models, and the buyer and supplier landscape. It complements two reports on how operators can maximise value from the private network opportunity and the private LTE/5G network strategies of selected operators, systems integrators and vendors.
This report establishes a framework for assessing the opportunity and includes:
- market context: analysis of key demand and supply side drivers, the spectrum landscape and market sizing
- network models: analysis of deployment models and how they address different enterprise requirements
- adoption trends: analysis and mapping of each network model to the types of enterprises and verticals.
The report provides implications for buyers and suppliers of private LTE/5G solutions.
It is based on several sources:
- interviews with stakeholders in the operator, vendor and systems integrator markets
- internal research on the private LTE/5G market such as our Private LTE/5G networks tracker.
The report answers the following questions:
- What are the different network models for private LTE/5G and how do they differ?
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of each network model?
- What are the early adoption trends for each model and how do the models map to enterprise segments and verticals?
- What is the size of the private LTE/5G network market?
