Private LTE/5G networks: spectrum trends and analysis
09 March 2021 | Research
The fragmentation of spectrum regimes for private LTE/5G networks creates issues of cost and scale for the whole industry and reduces the demand for services based on MNOs’ licensed spectrum. MNOs are well-placed to address this complexity and protect enterprises from the risks.
This report provides:
- an overview of the challenges of a fragmented spectrum landscape, including those related to cost and scale
- analysis of MNOs' role in lowering costs and protecting enterprises from the risks of a fragmented spectrum landscape
- recommendations for how MNOs can address the different spectrum regimes, use unlicensed spectrum and exploit the wide-area network.
