The number of commercial 5G network deployments will grow to 55 globally in 2019,  up from 13 in 2018, according to new research by the telecommunications firm VIAVI Solutions.

The Age of 5G: what to expect with next-generation wireless

Lindsay Notwell, Senior Vice President of 5G Strategy at Cradlepoint, explains to Information Age the impact of the Age of 5G

The pace of commercial deployments is a clear indication of the competition to offer 5G services. Only 28% of service providers this time last year said they ere in field trials with 5G architecture.

“5G represents a paradigm shift in the way that networks are designed, deployed and managed, introducing inherent complexities in the architecture as well as exacting demands on performance and latency,” said Sameh Yamany, chief technology officer, VIAVI. “The anticipated improvements that 5G offers will depend on precise operation of multiple elements throughout the network. As service providers worldwide deploy and activate their commercial networks, they are relying on VIAVI 5G test solutions, from the lab to the field, to ensure optimal customer experience and quality.”
