Greater cloud adoption, better security and connected cars — 5G predictions for 2023

The importance of 5G in internet infrastructure is widely recognized, but the impact of the pandemic has slowed its deployment somewhat.

According to IDTechEx, 98 countries have commercialized 5G or are conducting 5G trials as of September this year, compared to 79 countries at the end of 2021.

The IDTechEx team also forecasts that consumer mobile services will generate US$850 billion in revenue by the end of 2033, while the 5G macro-infrastructure sector will grow eightfold over 2023. .

Sean Mahoney, vice president of Ensono Digital, expects technologies, including 5G, to drive cloud adoption. “Cloud-native technologies such as containers and serverless models have become more commonplace across public clouds in recent years and can speed application development and deployment at scale. For companies looking to quickly innovate or overhaul their cloud infrastructure without spending money, developing cloud-native applications may be the answer to their modernization goals. Edge Computing and New Developments in 5G is expected to further drive cloud-native adoption and innovation in the industry over the next year, offering significant opportunities for organizations to scale up quickly.Store your data in the cloud and access new capabilities in your software. .”

Chris Dobrec, Vice President of Products and Industry Solutions at Armis, believes private 5G users will need a better security strategy. “Early adopters in industries such as manufacturing, public safety, and supply chain management are beginning to deploy 5G to support use cases such as smart factories, where extended coverage, increased capacity, and low latency will facilitate the use of IoT sensors. 5G is unlikely to replace Wi-Fi in the near future, enabling real-time use cases, especially in IoT and edge computing use cases. Private networks offer more control and enable quicker response to security. and management.”

Samit Banerjee, President of Cloud Operations Services and Head of Customer Service Unit at Amdocs, said:

The deployment of 5G networks will reorganize the mechanisms and functions of business networks. 5G will be the catalyst for cloud computing with low latency, high capacity and high bandwidth. Inevitably, it will make it easier for IoT systems and devices to access the cloud. This connectivity facilitates the automation and digitization of business processes.

The deployment of next-generation networks will accelerate cloud business adoption. This rapid adoption in this dynamic environment can pose many security threats to data privacy and confidentiality. To address this, organizations must constantly upskill and reskill their workforce on cloud services. Additionally, businesses need to ensure the safety and integrity of their data, which requires upgrading their current checks. Hence, the future industry must adapt to secure and sustainable cloud practices for long-term growth and success.

Canonical’s Bertrand Boisseau expects 5G to be in cars. “Vehicles will continue to gain connectivity features and services via over-the-air (OTA) updates. As 5G rolls out, vehicles will have 5G modems embedded, some utilizing mmWave technology. .mmWave enables higher speeds and more bandwidth.It will be used for V2X use cases.As connectivity increases, the car will continue to be an extension of the home.Video conferencing calls and other key applications. When it comes to infotainment, we will probably see more Augmented Reality (AR).Virtual Reality (VR) applications included in the user experience, whether for drivers or passengers. is.”
