J N Mylaraiah - Director, Enterprise Sales, India & SAARC, CommScope comments that consumers will continue to hear about 5G and the benefits it will offer and operators will be busy in 2020 rolling out, densifying, and powering the network in a variety of bands while working on driving the standards and technology. “This year will also mark a tipping point for key network, customer premise equipment, and smart home technology that’s been in the works for years. The confluence of technologies such as 6GHz spectrum and Wi-Fi 6 are pushing a range of new services in the realm of reality.”
5G has launched in places around the world, but it is only in its infancy. 2020 will be the year that network operators put the pieces into place to deliver the 5G promise and we will watch as the lines between wireless and wireline continue to blur.
While 2019 saw the introduction of Wi-Fi 6 certified products, the deployment of shared spectrum, availability of 5G handsets and service in select cities, and an uptick in interest for private networks. These new standards, products and services will give enterprises more choices in 2020 as to how they meet increased demands for both capacity and coverage, as well as meet increased end-user expectations.
