While physical devices remain stable, the industry is focusing on getting each device integrated and connected. According to an Ericsson Mobility report from 2019, 5G has reached 13 million subscriptions and it’s expected to reach 2,6 billion subscriptions by 2025, covering 65% of the world's population and generating 45% of the world’s total mobile data traffic.

A few of the trends we see in this sector are:
