Market Analysis Perspective: 5G ROI and Ecosystem Readiness for APEJ Telcos
This IDC Market Perspective highlights the importance of moving beyond business-to-consumer (B2C) 5G offerings and provides a snapshot of capex spent on 5G in the region. IDC then benchmarks prominent Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APEJ) countries with respect to their 5G maturity and puts forth high-level recommendations on lowering opex and capex. This Perspective also explores where the current opportunity is within different industry verticals and provides a road map on 5G monetization. 5G has been a hype and bringing the reality closer to enterprises means laying down the return-on-investment (ROI) path for communications SPs is essential.
