 2024 Telecom Industry Trends

2024 Telecom Industry Trends

The telecommunications industry is constantly evolving following decades of development and innovation. Below, we’ve outlined some of the main telecom trends to watch in 2024.

5G Deployment and Enhancements

While 5G technology has been available for some time, many networks still rely on 4G/LTE infrastructure. As 5G networks become increasingly available worldwide, consumers will have access to more capabilities such as standalone networks and network segmentation. Furthermore, 5G-Advanced technology (also known as 5.5G) offers network enhancements and application strengthening capabilities on the road to further deployment.

“The post-pandemic years have resulted in a series of challenges for the telecommunications industry – mainly, fewer projects for telecom companies,” said USA Telecom President Bruce Eades. “When you compound decreased work opportunities with social inflation, legal changes, supply chain deficiencies, and an increasingly hard insurance market, it’s apparent that, until 5.5G deployment becomes more prevalent, continued development and project availability will remain scarce.”

Linked Gadgets and Increased Productivity

Connection across technologies is becoming more and more popular. This allows for easier information exchange, which leads to more collaboration. With enhanced technologies, more sectors will have access to data-driven decision-making and automation leading to increased productivity. Look out for increased yields, reduced consumptions, and more efficient supply chains.

Enhanced Data Privacy

More technology in our lives means our personal data is collected at an exponential rate. Increased sensitive data for companies to safeguard requires a greater responsibility to outline proper policies, procedures, and software to maintain enhanced security. Enterprises should focus on data security measures by following data privacy laws to protect their customers.

The Rise in Cloud Services

More and more IT systems are moving to cloud-based environments, increasing mobility and management. Telecom operators should expect to use cloud services more frequently and to greater effect to meet the rising demand.

Edge Computing

Edge computing simplifies data processing, allowing devices to do the math locally in real time, which results in faster reaction times that avoid clogging up networks while simultaneously providing anonymity. In the new year, anticipate edge computing becoming more popular for exploring efficiencies and increasing automation.
