The global LTE small cell gateways market, which is WiFi enabled, is forecast to grow to an installed base of 15 million units by the end of 2020. This figure suggests volume growth in the industry of almost 122% between 2013 and 2020. This industry is forecast to see growth due to a number of key factors, including increasing commitments by infrastructure vendors, and increased demands from the wireless carrier community.
Driven by large scale LTE investments and the high penetration of embedded WiFi capability in consumer electronic devices, both fixed and mobile, a number of wireless carriers are taking a keen interest in WiFi enabled LTE gateways. A WiFi enabled LTE small cell gateway (or base station) is an emerging network element, which has an LTE interface towards the carrier network and a WiFi interface towards the end user device. A vast majority of these base station deployments are likely to be in a small cell configuration.For more information on the Global LTE small cell gateways market, please click here: Global LTE small cell gateways market
