5G is about fixed and mobile – 4G was a pure mobile play
Editor’s note: This is the third part of Peter Linder’s four-part series of posts explaining the lessons to recall from 4G deployment as we get ready for 5G. See the related links below for the other posts in this series. The introduction of 5G will shape both fixed and mobile networks. This is a big difference compared to 4G, which was a pure mobile play. All previous mobile radio technologies have been introduced for mobile, with fixed wireless as a later addition. For 5G, we expect a different balance with fixed wireless higher up on the list of priorities during the launch.
