Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, security, networks, and data center industries, has recently updated the "5G Workloads Moving to the Public Cloud" report. It projects Hyperscale Cloud Providers (HCPs) to capture 9% of the 5G Standalone (5G SA) Workloads market in 2027. Public Cloud 5G SA Workloads' 5-year cumulative revenues are expected to reach $5.4 billion with a five-year CAGR of 65%

“The forecast has been reduced due to the slow migration to 5G SA by Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) for their eMMB networks and by Enterprises for their 5G SA private wireless networks,” stated Dave Bolan, research director at Dell’Oro Group. “Some Enterprise networks are commercially deployed, but most are long-term proofs-of-concept or field trials, lasting as long as a few years. As a result, we forecast that HCPs such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure will capture a cumulative 6% of the market revenues over the next five years by hosting 5G workloads on their respective public clouds.

“In this report update, we include HCPs’ revenues for the Edge (Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) and for vRAN).  The Edge's cumulative revenues are expected to reach $1.3 billion over the next five years. The anticipated CAGR for the Edge of the Public Cloud market is 86%, marking it the highest growth segment for HCPs. The interest by the HCPs also extends to the IMS Core and the virtualized Radio Access Network (vRAN), which are included,” Bolan added.
