An Early Look at the Enterprise 5G Adoption Opportunity

An Early Look at the Enterprise 5G Adoption Opportunity

This IDC Market Perspective examines the enterprise adoption opportunity for 5G as viewed by respondents to IDC's 2019 U.S. Enterprise Mobility Decision Maker Survey. The possibilities offered by a 5G-enabled future are very exciting, yet the road to realization is long and fraught with obstacles. Despite that uncertainty, businesses are keen to begin exploring what the next-generation connectivity network has to offer, though that early adoption appetite is not evenly spread across all industries and company sizes."In the early days, many companies will purchase 5G devices less to meet a specific business need than for the reputational benefit of appearing to be at the forefront of technological innovation," says Jason Leigh, research manager, Mobility. "But early adoption will help companies gain a better understanding of how 5G can materially impact their business operations to drive efficiency and new revenue, which will help them target their use of future emergent 5G use cases more effectively."
