An assessment of total cost of ownership in the period to 2025
With 5G rollouts and adoption progressing quickly, and with the millimetre wave (mmWave) ecosystem showing signs of readiness, the question that the mobile industry faces today is whether and where mmWave solutions can be cost effective. In this report, we focus on the critical question of its deployment costs: we evaluate the cost effectiveness of deploying mmWave 5G solutions in six different scenarios, including dense urban areas, fixed wireless access (FWA) and indoor deployments in the period between now and 2025.
