5G-era Mobile Network Cost Evolution

After a wave of 5G commercial launches in Asia, Europe and North America, the attention is moving on to fine-tuning 5G deployments and optimising 5G-era costs. This Beta Labs study uses the concept of total cost of ownership (TCO) to evaluate the long term 5G-era cost evolution looking at 5G cost drivers such as spectrum and rollout strategies; 5G cost accelerators such as 5G RAN upgrades and densification; and 5G cost optimisers, such as RAN virtualisation.
