The market is speculative; however, the opportunity exists such that market players currently vetting V-band’s prospects should consider launching programs supporting multiple Tbps of demand. More than 5 Tbps of demand could be generated from 2023 to 2030 alone; this does not include Mobility, Government & Military and other demand segments that can prove to be high revenue generators as well.
