5G is the subject of unprecedented amounts of hype and promotion leading some to believe a revolution in wireless communications is underway.

However well deserved the hype over 5G is today, it occurs against a backdrop of international uncertainty with turbulent politics, which makes this an important time to analyse 5G policies to understand what 5G might look like.

In Europe, technology power houses such as Ericsson and Nokia have embarked on a series of successful pre-commercial 5G trials. The European R&D and Test & Measurement communities play a key role in validating core radio network capabilities for emerging 5G technologies. Yet, the regulatory and economic foundation for region-wide acceleration may not be solid enough to support what some call this ‘revolutionary’ step.

Though many aspects of the 5G vision set it apart from previous generational successions, it is best understood as part of a steady evolutionary process of enhanced mobile connectivity, building on earlier generations of which 2G, 3G and 4G remain in widespread use. In order to understand 5G it is necessary to understand the context, value chains and regulatory environments associated with current generations.

This is the first in a series of reports looking at 5G across the different regions of the world. This report focused on 5G in Europe, others will consider 5G in the Americas and the Asia-Pacific region. The aim of the report is to both inform and influence stakeholders, fostering sensible, realistic dialogue between regulators, technology providers, governments and others. It will guide those currently involved in all aspects of wireless communications and assist those interested in entering the market to take advantage of the opportunities new generations of technology inevitably offer.
