The Small Cells Market 2012-2017

Press Release   •   Dec 28, 2013 12:38 IST

Dec 28, 2013 : Bharat Book Bureau presents the new report, on 'The Small Cells Market 2012-2017'  One of the key issues for MNOs has been to address this increasing data traffic demand with sufficient capacity at high speeds. Due to limited spectrum availability and increasing rates of data consumption, the user experience is somewhat sacrificed. One of the solutions to the rising wireless broadband capacity crunch is through deploying heterogeneous networks (Hetnets) comprising macro cells and a range of small cell solutions namely microcells, picocells, carrier Wi-Fi and femtocells. Visiongain has determined that the value of the global small cells market in 2012 will reach $233.7 million.

Small cells are being widely deployed by mobile operators throughout the world. 2G/3G small cells are already being used widely by operators for the purposes of boosting network capacity in urban areas, provide wider coverage in rural areas, and furthermore to extend services into large public areas such as train stations, airports and shopping malls. More recently, with the widespread rollout of 4G LTE technologies there has been a renewed vigour in the deployment of 4G small cells in the form of public space femto cells and mini eNode base stations, in order to keep up with the increasing capacity and backhaul requirements for ubiquitous access to mobile broadband at 4G speeds.

Visiongain predicts significant growth in the small cells market, particularly in the 4G small cell types. The market is poised for growth for vendors and solution providers as there is a huge uptake both from the consumer market, enterprise sector and the mobile operators, driven by limited spectrum and capacity constraints,

What makes this report unique?
