HetNet infrastructure investments to reach $13 Billion by 2016, says SNS Research report
DUBAI, UAE. 3rd February 2016: SNS Research's latest report indicates that mobile operators are expected to invest nearly $13 Billion in small cell, carrier Wi-Fi, C-RAN and DAS infrastructure rollouts by the end of 2016.
Driven by in-building wireless coverage requirements and the growing influx of mobile data traffic, mobile operators are increasingly investing in Heterogeneous Network or HetNet infrastructure such as strategically deployed small cells, carrier Wi-Fi and DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems). Adding further to the heterogeneity is the shift towards a C-RAN (Centralized RAN) architecture, which centralizes baseband functionality to be shared across a large number of distributed radio nodes. In comparison to standalone clusters of base stations, C-RAN provides significant performance and economic benefits such as baseband pooling, enhanced coordination between cells, virtualization, network extensibility and energy efficiency.
Driven by the thriving ecosystem, we expect small cell, carrier Wi-Fi, C-RAN and DAS investments to account for nearly $13 Billion by the end of 2016. The market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 15% between 2016 and 2020, as mobile operators remain committed to tackle the continued growth of mobile data traffic and evolving coverage requirements.
The “HetNet Ecosystem (Small Cells, Carrier Wi-Fi, C-RAN & DAS): 2016 – 2030 – Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies & Forecasts” report presents an in-depth assessment of the HetNet ecosystem including enabling technologies, key trends, market drivers, challenges, standardization, regulatory landscape, deployment models, use cases, vertical markets, operator case studies, opportunities, future roadmap, value chain, ecosystem player profiles and strategies. The report also presents forecasts for HetNet infrastructure investments from 2016 till 2030. The forecasts cover 6 individual submarkets and 6 regions.
The report will be of value to current and future potential investors into the HetNet ecosystem, as well as enabling technology providers, HetNet infrastructure vendors, mobile operators and other ecosystem players who wish to broaden their knowledge of the ecosystem.
