North America is expected to lead the 5G business. Leading operators in the region have expressed their intention to launch 5G network deployment from the end of 2018 to the middle of 2019. By the end of 2023, nearly 50% of North American mobile users will be 5G users, followed by Northeast Asia (34%), followed by Western Europe (21%).
Throughout the world, large-scale 5G deployment is expected to take place in 2020. Ericsson predicts that by the end of 2023, the number of enhanced mobile broadband 5G users will exceed 1 billion, accounting for about 12% of the total number of mobile users.
In the forecast period, the mobile data flow is expected to increase nearly 8 times to 107 EB/ months by the end of 2023 - the equivalent of 10 hour full HD for every mobile user in the world.videoThe flow of production. By 2023, more than 20% of the world's mobile data traffic will be carried by the 5G network, which is 1.5 times the total 4G/3G/2G traffic.
Similar to previous mobile communication technologies, 5G is expected to be first deployed in dense urban areas, and enhanced mobile broadband and fixed wireless access will become the first commercial use cases supported by the 5G network. In addition, 5G will also be used in automotive, manufacturing, utility and medical care industries.
Fredrik Jejdling, executive vice president and network business director of Ericsson, said: "the 2018 5G commercial network will be the first appearance, and the cellular Internet of things will also be deployed on a large scale."
The report points out that the first generation 5G special terminal will be launched in the second half of 2018. The first commercial smart phone to support 5G technology will be launched in early 2019, and the 5G smart phone supporting the high frequency segment is expected to be launched in mid 2019.
