"Applications and edge solutions for private LTE/5G networks will generate more than USD7 billion in spending worldwide in 2030."


This report provides a 10-year forecast for applications and edge computing for private LTE/5G networks. It includes forecasts for enterprises’ new spending on applications and edge computing (many private networks will use applications, but not all networks will require edge computing) and the number of private networks that include an edge computing solution (on-premises or distributed between a customer edge and a network edge).

The forecast is based on Analysys Mason’s interviews with private network vendors, service providers and system integrators and on our private LTE/5G networks tracker and private LTE/5G networks forecast. Public information sources were also used.
