New Cisco Annual Internet Report: 5G is expected to support more than 10 percent of global mobile Internet connections by 2023 2020-03-25

According to the latest Cisco Annual Internet Report, 5G will support more than 10 percent of global mobile network connections by 2023, and the average 5G speed will be 575 megabits per second, or 13 times faster than the average mobile network connection. With powerful functions, 5G will provide more flexible mobile infrastructure for artificial intelligence and emerging Internet of things applications, such as autonomous cars, smart cities, telemedicine and panoramic video.

For the past 50 years, there has been a new top mobile technology every 10 years. The requirements for mobile broadband have also evolved from voice calls and texting to ultra-high definition (UHD) video, as well as a variety of augmented reality or virtual reality (AR / VR) applications. With the gradual adoption of mobile applications by users, consumers and business users around the world are also increasing their demands and expectations for mobile networks. It is also clear that social networks, video streaming and downloading, enterprise business production, e-commerce and games will continue to drive the growth of mobile applications, and it is expected to reach nearly 300 billion downloads by 2023.

Roland Acra, senior vice president and technical director of Cisco, said: "Cisco research has found that Internet users, devices and connections are growing, and the increase in Internet demand is beyond our imagination. As connectivity and applications continue to grow, the insights and expertise shared in Cisco Annual Internet Report help businesses, governments and service providers around the world prepare and protect the networks to cope with the continued growth of connectivity and applications. Strategic planning and partnerships are essential to the technological innovation and investment development of all institutions. "

Summary of Cisco Annual Internet Report(2018~2023)

Cisco Annual Internet Report covers mobile, wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi), and fixed broadband networks, and quantifies the growth of users, devices, connections, and network performance and related trends over the next five-year (2018-2023).

Global mobile and Internet user projections by 2023

- More than 70 percent of the global population (5.7 billion people) will have mobile connectivity (2G, 3G, 4G or 5G).

- Internet users will account for 66 percent (5.3 billion) of the global population.

Global plant and connectivity projections by 2023

- 3.6 networked devices or connections per capita, while the average household has about 10 devices and connections.

- Nearly half (47 percent) of the devices and connections will have video function.

- Machine to Machine (M2M) connections that support a broad range of Internet of Things (IoT) applications will represent about 50 percent (14.7 billion) of global devices and connections.

Global mobile projections by 2023

- 45 percent of the network devices will be mobile network connections, including 3G and below, 4G, 5G or Low-Power Wide-Area (LPWA) networks, while 55 percent will be wired or connected over Wi-Fi.

- Compared to 0.0 percent in 2018, the global 5G connections will account for 10.6 percent of the total mobile network connection.
