"The promise of 5G has now passed the 'hype' phase of intrigue and excitement as consumers and enterprises have grown used to high-speed broadband networks. In fact, consumers and enterprises are now looking for specific and compelling 5G value propositions beyond just speed and unlimited data. For example, enterprises want to explore industry-specific use cases that are coupled with 5G infrastructure, including private networks and network-as-a-service offerings. Operators and systems integrators with industry-specific insights will need to partner with innovative telecom OEMs to package compelling 5G solution and service offerings and capitalize on the 5G enterprise opportunity." — Keoikantse Marungwana, senior research manager, telecommunications and IoT, IDC Sub-Saharan Africa
