Nvidia and Softbank Join Forces To Deploy AI-Based 5G MEC Telco Network Across Japan

Overview:

Earlier this month, Nvidia and Softbank announced that they had developed a dual-purpose AI-driven 5G MEC and vRAN distributed platform based on Nvidia's new GH200 Grace Hopper superchip.  The two partners intend to deploy a network of regional data centres across Japan later this year to capitalize on the demand for accelerated computing and generative AI services. The shared multi-tenant platform will also offer a range of 5G vRAN applications.

USA FWA and CPE Ecosystem Analysis and Forecast – February 2023

Overview:

In 2022, 22% of US households did not have access to fixed broadband. This number will be reduced to 2% by the end of 2027. While 71 million (55%) US households utilize VDSL/cable technology, 63 million utilize cable technology. Growth of fiber/FTTH has been slow and costly. Despite the coverage announcement, the last-mile connection has proven difficult to set up.  US mobile operators believe FWA is an opportunity to gain additional revenues with limited to zero incremental investments in many areas, some metro and some rural.

This report provides a deep analysis of the adoption of the fixed broadband market by technology, operators, and ISPs. It also presents the outlook till 2027 on the 4G and 5G FWA subscribers and FWA-CPE. For 5G FWA, It provides key drivers of FWA adoption by operators, such as network readiness, ARPU, market maturity, and others. The report outlines drivers that will push the growth, and where the biggest drawbacks are.

Australia FWA and CPE Ecosystem Analysis and Forecast

Overview:

Australia has one national fibre network, The National Broadband Network (NBN). It is a mix of government and private-party investment, and most carriers just market and sell the service.  FTTH fibre-to-the-home penetration is still low; most of it is still fibre to the node or cabinet. FTTH is expected to increase, but the vastness of the Australian land will force it to be slow and costly. 5G FWA would certainly drive the growth of higher speed in the last-mile connection. But 5G coverage is still limited.

This report provides actuals and outlook till 2027 on the 4G and 5G FWA subscribers and FWA-CPE unit sales. It also includes top selling FWA-CPE models and a forecast on its ASP in Australia.
