The guide to capturing the 5G-IoT business potential

The guide to capturing the 5G-IoT business potential

5G presents an opportunity for telecom operators to tap into new revenue streams emerging from the digitalization of industries. Our report The 5G business potential shows operators can benefit from up to USD 619 billion market opportunity globally in 2026.

But how do you do you go about to capture this opportunity? How do you select what industries and what use cases to address? When the number of use cases is countless, how do you make the business scale?

We collected our insights from a thorough analysis of over 200 5G use cases in a comprehensive guide for operators on how to start their IoT business today and grow with 5G. In the report we present 9 use case clusters across 10 industry sectors. While the revenue potential is different for each cluster, all the clusters represents a more sizable opportunity than individual use cases.

For each of the clusters we identify the go to market challenges, including considerations on business models and value chain positioning, as well as network deployment challenges based on requirements on network performance and characteristics. The report also includes real-life case studies of operators that have deployed IoT offerings with successful monetization and business models.

To make the insights from the report actionable, we built a five-step framework for evaluation of what clusters to address and development of go-to market and network deployment strategies.
