Featured insights


Most 5G networks have been commercially rolled out or planned using Sub-6 GHz spectrum. Complementary to 5G Sub-6 GHz networks, mmWave bands can provide significantly more capacity and promise to deliver multiple Gigabit data rates to end-users. In this analysis, Bell Labs Consulting focuses on the critical question of 5G mmWave business attractiveness and its unique value proposition: “Can telecom operators more profitably serve 5G subscribers with a technically superior solution by investing in 5G mmWave? If so, where and what would be the right applications, and what is the return on these investments?”
