This IDC Market Perspective examines 5G spectrum policies and allocations in GCC countries as well as South Africa. It addresses regional market developments and dynamics as well as country-specific policies and spectrum allocations."NRAs in the GCC region have allocated significant amounts of spectrum in recent years, particularly in the mid-band (1-6GHz), to accelerate 5G deployments and adoption. They have also made limited allocations of mmWave spectrum for the same purpose. The 5G ecosystem will be more complex than previous generations, with features such as 5G network slicing, spectrum sharing, open RAN architectures, and 5G private networks. Telecom operators and tech suppliers should increase and diversify their capabilities and skillsets to ensure successful transitions to 5G and rapid monetization of their investments." - Senior Research Manager Tolga Yalcin, IDC Middle East, Turkey, and Africa
