The Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (BEREC) has made 5G a strategic priority in its work plan for the coming years. As part of its workplan, on 14 March BEREC published a “Study on Implications of 5G Deployment on Future Business Models” prepared by DotEcon Ltd and Axon Partners Group.
The study aims to improve BEREC’s understanding of 5G in terms of the key technologies and services that may emerge, and the obstacles and enablers for success with a focus on the near term. The study outlines the implications of 5G deployment for market structure, market dynamics, business models, value chains and competition in the telecommunications market and other adjacent markets (e.g. automotive, manufacturing, agriculture).
Axon and DotEcon also conducted a workshop in Bratislava to present the findings of the study to representatives from BEREC and EU’s national regulatory authorities on 7 March 2018, in the context of BEREC’s 34th plenary meetings.
The study is available from the BEREC’s publications website.
