Deployment Planning Cycle for 5G Mobile Services

While some mobile network service providers have yet to deploy 4G cell-based infrastructure, the global leaders are starting to plan for the next-generation of wireless communications. The mobile internet will become increasingly important to fueling economic growth, resulting in a new wave of market development.

The concept of 5G services have yet to be fully-defined. Nevertheless, Juniper Research has forecast the rapid adoption for 5G mobile technologies starting in 2025, with active connections representing a threefold increase from 2024 to reach 240 million potential subscribers.

However, this 5G deployment will likely represent a very limited global reach -- initially accounting for approximately just 3 percent of all mobile connections across the globe.

Juniper found that the many advantages of 5G -- such as higher data rates, longer battery life, greater user/device support, and reduced latency -- should result in an ideal environment for the proliferation of new mobile internet applications.

That said, 5G will likely include a complex set of standardization activities during the next 5 years, long before the first roll-out of commercial services around 2020. Besides, the latest Juniper market study observed that obtaining the radio spectrum in each market will be a key to progress.


"It is critical to 5G success that the most feasible and appropriate spectrum bands are assigned, not only to support existing high bandwidth and capacity requirements, but also the wide ranging devices and applications contributing towards the Internet of Everything," said Nitin Bhas, head of research at Juniper Research.

While it has not yet been confirmed which radio frequency bands are going to be utilized for 5G by network operators, the twin issues that need to be surmounted are the timing and cost of the spectrum. These issues will play pivotal roles in deciding the speed of worldwide 5G deployment.

Juniper expects Japan and South Korea to be among the first countries to launch commercial 5G wireless services. A number of network operators from this region have chosen their suppliers and set a commercial service date.

The Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness a very high rate of growth in connections, similar to that of North America, according to the latest Juniper market assessment.

While none of the U.S. operators have made any public announcements regarding 5G trials or pilots, Juniper believes that given its prior 4G leadership, the U.S. will follow the Far East and China in 5G service deployment and adoption.

GenAI Revolution: The Future of B2B Sales Apps

When B2B buyers consider a purchase they spend just 17 percent of that time meeting with vendors. When they are comparing multiple suppliers‚ time spent with any one salesperson is 5 or 6 percent. Self-directed B2B buyer online research has already changed procurement. IT vendors are less likely to be involved in solution assessment. Now, more disruptive changes are on the horizon. By 2028, 60 percent of B2B seller work will be executed through conversational user interfaces via Generative Artificial Intelligence sales technologies -- that's up from less than 5 percent in 2023, according to Gartner. Generative AI Market Development "Sales operations leaders and their technology teams must prepare for the convergence of new forms of artificial intelligence, dynamic process automation, and reinvented deal-planning activities that will transform the sales function," said Adnan Zijadic, director analyst at Gartner .

GenAI: A New Era in Business Transformation

The advent of artificial intelligence (AI) has ushered in a new frontier of innovation, with Generative AI (GenAI) at the forefront. At the brink of this revolution, it's crucial to understand the current GenAI adoption and its implications for commerce worldwide. A recent poll conducted by Gartner provides valuable insights into this emerging trend and the potential upside opportunities. Generative AI Market Development The poll, which included 1,419 executive leaders, indicates a significant shift in the corporate world's perception and adoption of GenAI. The data reveals that 45 percent of respondents are currently piloting GenAI, while another 10 percent have put it into production. This is a substantial increase from a similar poll conducted in March and April 2023, where only 15 percent were piloting and 4 percent were in production. GenAI is no longer a mere buzzword; it has become a strategic focus for organizations worldwide. As Frances Karamouzis, VP Analyst at Gartne
