The development of 5G mobile communication technology provides crucial support for enhancing the national telecommunications sector. However, the investment costs required are relatively high to meet the needs of wireless communication networks with large capacities, low latency, and large-scale applications in the context of the Internet of Things (IoT). The measurement of the likely profits from such investment requires accurate metrics. One key metric is profitability using the optimum value of investment to minimise short-term risk and maximise long-term profitability, as well as alternatives derived from the IRR on the net present value (NPV). This study uses a 5G network design featuring Uplink (UL) and Downlink (DL), outdoor-to-outdoor (O2O), and line-of-sight (LoS) coverage. Both of these scenarios provide adequate results in terms of NPV, NPV% and NPVproj.
