5G in Defense: Introduction

  • The 5th generation of global wireless standard is designed to connect virtually everyone and everything together including machines, objects, and devices.
  • 5G technology is widely used in the defense sector for communication and security due to its specifications such as higher network speed and lower latency.
  • 5G in defense market is segmented in terms of communication infrastructure, core network technology, platform, end-use, network type, chipset, operational frequency, installation, and region.

Rise in Demand for Small Cells

  • In terms of communication infrastructure, the small cell segment is the fastest growing segment of the global 5G in defense market.
  • With the introduction of 5G networks, data connectivity speed is expected to increase significantly, and small cells help facilitate 5G deployment. They are anticipated to play an important role in the market for 5G communication infrastructure.
  • Based on platform, the airborne segment holds the second largest share of the global 5G in defense market due to its various applications in drones and communications with high efficiency.
  • In May 2020, Ericsson signed a contract with T-Mobile US, Inc. This partnership enables high-quality voice services utilizing VoLTE in the SA architecture while the industry is fully developing Voice over New Radio (VoNR) 5G technology.
  • Delay by the international community in the use of 5G for the defense sector, and lack of a knowledgeable workforce are the major restraints of the global 5G in defense market.
