The global telecoms industry is changing rapidly with the increasing adoption of 5G technology. Juniper Research has released a new report predicting that roaming connections on 5G networks will grow by a about 900% from 53 million in 2023 to 526 million by 2027. This major surge in data traffic presents both opportunities as well as challenges for providers and operators as they must ensure their systems are able to manage the influx of subscribers while catering to customers’ expectations. In order to ensure service continuity an efficient way of identifying, authenticating and managing roaming connections is essential. To this end, deploying cutting-edge 5G network cores can improve identification and authentication of connections over these networks. Moreover, AI-based real-time analytics and fraud mitigation services are necessary to tackle the increased data traffic from roaming subscribers. The rise of 5G technology also marks an opportunity for operators as it will be easier for them to detect and identify such connections automatically resulting in more cost-effective solutions. Furthermore, Juniper’s report predicts that roaming traffic on 5G networks will grow 3,500% over the next four years; therefore operators need to invest in solutions capable of handling such high volumes quickly and accurately.
Juniper Research provides research and analytical services to the global hi-tech communications sector, helping stakeholders make informed decisions when it comes to managing telecoms operations, customer experience and customer relationship development within their organizations. With its independent forecasts, assessments and market data, Juniper Research is helping industry leaders stay ahead of the curve so that they can stay competitive in this ever-evolving field. By 2027, Juniper Research expects 5G roaming connections to have grown from 53 million in 2023 to 526 million. As such, operators need to invest in solutions that can identify and authenticate these roaming connections quickly and accurately whilst ensuring their networks are secured with AI-driven analytics. In doing so, providers will not only be able to meet the ever-growing demands of 5G users, but also stay ahead of the competition in this rapidly changing landscape. The Juniper Research report indicates that with the introduction of 5G technology, new and innovative solutions are needed to identify, authenticate and manage roaming connections; services such as artificial intelligence (AI)-driven analytics, real-time analytics and fraud mitigation are necessary to tackle the increased traffic. Moreover, operators must also be able to keep their networks secure while providing a seamless customer experience. Juniper Research’s predictions demonstrate the immense potential of 5G technology but also the challenges that come with its adoption. As such, providers need to invest in solutions capable of handling the increasing number of roaming subscribers accurately and quickly. With Juniper Research’s data, telecom companies can stay ahead of their competition as they take steps towards embracing 5G technology and its potential.
