Global ‘State of 5G’ survey published

22 March 2021

Molex has published the results of a global survey of decision-makers from telecom carriers exploring the state of 5G and the transformational opportunities it presents, along with its impact on deployment progress, current delivery challenges and emerging business prospects.

Overall, carriers are optimistic: more than half of those surveyed expect to deliver substantial end-user benefits within two to five years while 47% reported that users are already are seeing value or will within one year.

“The 5G market is nearing an inflection point as carriers report steady progress despite continued challenges,” said Aldo Lopez, president, datacom solutions at Molex. “Fully realising 5G’s potential will transform multiple industries and markets. It is a long game that requires collaboration across an entire ecosystem of hardware, software and connectivity companies to innovate to these new mobile network standards, which in turn, will accelerate user adoption.”

When asked to identify the most important technology or industry changes that will enable network operators to achieve their business goals, respondents cited reduced costs of 5G infrastructure and network equipment (41%); innovation in enabling technologies, including semiconductors and sensors (31%); availability of new types of devices that require connectivity (26%); as well as stable and consistent government regulations (22%).
