5G Will be About Enterprise Use Cases

By 2025, the percent of enterprise traffic, now at perhaps 28 percent of total, could reach 96 percent of total, according to Bell Labs.

If you want to know why some of us believe the future for 5G is enterprise use cases, that is part of the reason.

On a separate level, Bell Labs also predicts that as much as 61 percent of all enterprise traffic will be terminated or originated using some wireless mechanism.

If 5G and some variation of Wi-Fi account for 61 percent of traffic, that leaves about 35 percent of total enterprise traffic that is neither 5G nor some form of Wi-Fi, but still wireless.

You might therefore guess that some of that traffic will be fixed wireless local access or some other form of wireless access, including specialized low-power, wide area networks of sensors.
