Published by Ericsson in June 2023, this paper examines and forecasts the evolution of 5G and mobile networks. It argues that 5G is growing rapidly despite challenges posed by current macroeconomic conditions. By examining data traffic patterns across various locations in mobile networks, the paper provides crucial insights for the future evolution of mobile networks. It suggests that high-rise buildings and underground areas often experience signal attenuation. Advanced services and new devices, including augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality, are expected to drive additional traffic growth. Next-generation 5G applications will require new models to rate mobile quality of experience (QoE) to design networks that support future performance demands.
