Ericsson: 3 billion 5G users by 2025

Ericsson: 3 billion 5G users by 2025
What would the lockdown period have been like if we had 5G available widely across the country? How could we manage the bandwidth flows, what services would we have available, what bottlenecks would we have avoided? History is not made with "ifs" and "buts", but this retrospective question could help us better understand what this type of technology could offer us in the years to come and why the hypotheses of the Colao Plan to stimulate its coverage could be good advice for the government in office.

The question asked by Ericsson, the protagonist of 5G at a global level, according to which investigation (pdf) “1 Italian out of 2 believes that 5G could have played a positive role during quarantine “. Given the amount of conspiracy turned on social media in the past months, one would say that the other Italian out of two believes that 5G is the cause of what happened, but this is another matter.

If we had had the 5G The spread of COVID-19 has forced people all over the world to change their daily lifestyle and, in many cases, to work or study from home. This led to a rapid shift of network traffic from corporate to residential areas. Ericsson's latest Mobility Report shows how mobile and landline networks are becoming more and more fundamental components of a national critical infrastructure

Fredrik Jejdling, Ericsson's Executive Vice President and Head of Networks

The insulation has highlighted how fundamental it is a good network to compensate for the lack of that that the distancing has denied. From the affected to the formation, by the smart working to gaming, the next frontier of telemedicine or streaming content to the highest quality, the network will place increasingly at the center of the needs. The 5G above all, thanks to its peculiarity (in terms of quantity of bandwidth and low latency), may return the great opportunities in every field. According to a study by Ericsson, 83% of italians believed that technology was essential to overcome the period of lockdown, lightens the limits and allowing you to work around the obstacles that the prohibitions on movement and contact imposed.

By the end of 2020 it is expected that the users hooked to a network 5G will arrive at the altitude of 190 million, but by 2025 we expect to be almost 3 billion, with a growth rate increasing year after year. A revolution destined to take, in short, that by the traumatic experience of the lockdown may have drawn further strength and further propulsive force.

As will be the next few years and the next emergency where we will not have the 5G available? The application must be mail to the hundreds of municipal governments that, on the basis of a precautionary principle without supports scientific, they blocked the networks 5G on areas of expertise in the past few months. But even this, unfortunately, is another matter.

The opinion of Huawei Huawei, the first competitor of Ericsson on the same segment of the market, brings forward the same reflection on the usefulness of a network of high-quality during periods of isolation such as the one experienced. So in the words of Chen Lifang, Chairman, Global Public Affairs & Communications and Board Member of Huawei:

With the pandemic, we've probably had the opportunity to reflect on the fact that if we had started earlier to implement the 5G, maybe we would have had the opportunity to deal with this crisis in public health more effectively. [...] technologies such as 5G, artificial intelligence, cloud and big data in the future will be used also in a mixed scenario. From this point of view, he added, " I see already a very dynamic part of all the Countries
