Worldwide deployment of 4G LTE service is just starting to ramp up for markets outside of the U.S. Meanwhile, the first true 5G commercial networks are tantalizingly close to being ready in select regions. Software is being tested, hardware is in the works, and carriers are readying their plans to flip the switch on their 5G network in the first half of 2019.
For network operators, globally, the pressure to deliver on these expectations is intensifying. Perhaps the biggest challenge is bringing enough macro and small cell capacity on line to support the immediate need for more 4G and the imminent launch of 5G.
