2014-04-21 10:40:02 - Global Wi-Fi-Enabled Small Cell Market 2014-2018 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
The Global Wi-Fi-Enabled Small Cell market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 185 percent over the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing densification of the subscribers´ base. The Global Wi-Fi-Enabled Small Cell market has also been witnessing the increasing adoption of Hotspot 2.0 standard. However, the interference issues could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
Key vendors dominating this market space are Airvana LLC, Cisco Systems Inc., Ericsson, Ruckus Wireless Inc., and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd.
Other vendors mentioned in the report are 4ipnet Inc., Airspan Networks Inc., Alpha Networks Inc., Alvarion Ltd. (Wavion), Anvaya Networks, Argela Technologies, Askey Computer Corp., Edgewater Wireless Systems Inc., EION Wireless,
Contela Inc., Gemtek Technologies Co. Ltd., GoNet Systems Ltd., Handlink Technologies Inc., Hewlett-Packard Co., Hay Systems Ltd., Ip.access Ltd., Juni Global, Powerwave Technologies Inc., PureWave Networks Inc., RFNet Technologies Pte Ltd., Ruckus Wireless Inc., SK telesys Inc., SpiderCloud Wireless Inc., Tektelic Communications, Tranzeo Wireless Technologies Inc., and Ubiquiti Networks Inc.
The key purpose of all non-macrocell solutions in a telecom network is to address the inexorable demand for coverage and capacity. Such solutions include small cells, Wi-Fi, DAS, and the emerging CRAN. While the first three solutions have been in the market for a while, the CRAN is a relatively new architecture which, like DAS, concentrates the processing of the RAN of a mobile network in one or more centralized network nodes. These different components are adding to the heterogeneity of the telecom networks around the world. Nowadays, Wi-Fi and small cells are among the most popular solutions for data offloading. As technology continues to evolve, the demand for anytime, anywhere communication is expected to increase steadily. In particular, smartphones are among the most widely used data supported devices at present. In fact, it is projected that by 2016, smartphones will account for more than 67 percent of mobile data traffic. As technologies are evolving, so are the networks that support them. Additionally, the coverage of the macrocell can be improved with the inclusion of a distributed antenna system and CRAN. During the forecast period, there will be huge capital flow for the adoption of small cells, Wi-Fi, DAS, and CRAN infrastructures.
The growth of the Global Wi-Fi-enabled Small Cell market is driven by many factors, one of which is the continuous demand for better network coverage. To sustain in a competitive business environment, telecom operators are striving to provide better network accessibility to mobile subscribers. In this regard, small cells and Wi-Fi solutions enable operators to efficiently provide coverage to the high-end consumers without investing exorbitantly in the network.
Further, one of the major challenges in this market is the interference among small cells, macrocells, and Wi-Fi. The biggest advantage of Wi-Fi networks is that they work in an unlicensed spectrum, thus helping operators reduce their costs. On the other hand, as the unlicensed spectrum is available to all operators and users, both macrocell and small cell networks share the same frequency bands for signal transmission. This results in interference and unwanted noise in the telecom network, which leads to a decline in quality of service and hence user experience. Therefore, telecom operators refrain from adopting Wi-Fi-enabled small cell networks.
