The Most Mature 5G Use Cases

In terms of 5G, Olsen said telecoms have yet to truly monetize 5G offerings while there is also a major lack of use cases thus far. He said there are currently three mature use cases for 5G.

“The three key use cases that are the most mature are going to be, No. 1, within retail. Automate retail as much as possible. Then No. 2, online gaming, believe it or not, is an extremely mature use case and they’ve really been able to monetize it with a business model behind it. There’s a lot of people on these gaming platforms and willing to pay [a lot],” said Olsen. “The [third is] within content distribution networks, which will be your Netflixes and your Hulus.”

In the long term, 5G will enable three major grouping of use cases: enhanced mobile broadband, ultra-reliable low-latency communications and massive machine-type communications, according to Vertiv’s report. The latter targets the efficient and secure connection of millions of devices without overloading the network.
