Establishing the foundation for 5G: a 2018 retrospective report

Member News published by Sitetracker, under 5G, Mobile Broadband, Small Cells, Software as a Service (SaaS), Strategy

2018 saw new advances in technology, new merger & acquisition activity, and new pilots in 5G deployment. Though this past year saw a lot of progress, there’s much more to come in 2019. In order to make 5G a reality in 2019 and beyond, 2018 laid the groundwork in fiber, small cells, and determined the standards for other 5G technologies. This past year has provided the foundation for 5G organizational and industry standardization, through physical, regulatory, and operational infrastructure groundwork. To succeed in the future, carriers and their service providers will need to build new infrastructure to make 5G a reality. This report from Sitetracker outlines what infrastructure is necessary, how to build it efficiently, and what tools are needed. The bottom line: network densification requires operational excellence to succeed, so companies must innovate or be left behind.

2018 was really a year of laying the foundation for 5G. There’s so much work to be done and there’s definitely more groundwork ahead of us in 2019. I think, though, that we will see a more intense focus on efficient deployment — particularly around operational infrastructure — that will pave the way for 5G

said Giuseppe Incitti, Sitetracker CEO.
