This webinar is an illustration of the content of a forecast in our RAN Research series from our head of research Caroline Gabriel. Between now and 2025, Mobile Network Operators will spend $51.8bn in building new networks, and 43% of that will be invested by alternative operators.
This will happen because the need for connectivity for applications such as autonomous fleets or deliveries, manufacturing and others, has already driven a surge in private LTE networks, which will be deployed and run by a variety of organizations, from integrators to specialist private operators, enterprises to MNOs themselves.
This report forecasts spend across all equipment types, not just Macro spending, but also all forms of Micro base stations, and new Mini-Macro formats. Cumulatively through the period, new and alternative operators will deploy 978,000 macro and micro base stations, and will finally kickstart widespread adoption of small cells.
