5G network rollouts were delayed due to the pandemic, but appear to be fully back in progress. In fact, over the past year Sierra Wireless experienced accelerating sales growth with our 5G modules and strong uptake with our 5G routers. We expect to see continued strong adoption of 5G technologies across all three of our lines of business – modules, routers and managed connectivity.
Additionally, with the ongoing shut down of 3G networks in the US, Sierra Wireless is seeing increased interest in 5G Red Cap, which will offer significantly lower cost IoT solutions at reduced speeds.
