Leverage Embedded Experience from Wind River to Connect with New 5G Markets 5G BRINGS NEW OPPORTUNITIES TO OPERATORS EMERGING 5G OPPORTUNITIES 5G technology, bringing improved latency, capacity, and speed, is expected to enable new business models and use cases in a wide range of market segments. Clearly the most impacted market is telecom, which will be required to deploy large amounts of networking infrastructure, such as virtual radio access networks (vRAN) to support the new spectrum and resulting use cases. It's expected that the automotive industry will become the largest market opportunity for 5G Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, representing 53% of the overall 5G IoT endpoint opportunity in 2023, 1 according to Gartner. The company also forecasts strong demand for 5G-enabled outdoor cameras used by city and building operators to enhance physical security. Other 5G-relevant market segments are factory automation and logistics, in which robots perform manufacturing tasks and carry materials around warehouses. In medical, ultra-low latency 5G networks will support remote, collaborative surgery with doctors and patients in different geographic locations. Agricultural use cases include automated tractors and drones helping to plant and harvest crops. And these are just a handful of the emerging opportunities. CULTIVATING NEW 5G MARKETS Network operators will invest up to $1 trillion in 5G networks between 2018 and 2025, 2 and, of course, they are looking for ways to maximize the return on this enormous expenditure. This effort includes offering new revenue- generating services in emerging 5G markets such as the aforementioned.
