5G RAN revenues in 2020 to eclipse 4G RAN revenues in 2010

Dell´Oro Group has released a new report that found 5G RAN revenues, including pre-5G and standards-based 5G RAN investments, in 2020 are expected to eclipse the level of 4G RAN revenues in 2010, the company said.

The company said the shift from 4G to 5G could have a broader effect than previous mobile technology migrations.

The report shows 5G RAN revenues in 2020 to be more than twice the size of 4G RAN revenues in 2010. The thesis is predicated on the assumption that the average 5G network in 2020 will be smaller than the average 4G network in 2010, but operator participation will be greater.

Dell´Oro Group´s “Advanced Research: 5G Report” offers an overview of the 5G mobile RAN industry with tables covering manufacturers´ revenue and access units analyzed by RF output power (macro and small cells), RAN architecture (centralized, cloud, distributed, integrated), and by region (North America, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Asia Pacific, and rest of world).
