Mobile Experts Analysis Predicts Market Shift to Carrier-Grade Small Cells in 2013

CAMPBELL, Calif., Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobile Experts has released three different forecasts: Small Cells, Semiconductors for Small Cells, and Backhaul for Small Cells. The publication of these forecasts has allowed Mobile Experts to share valuable information about the future of the Small Cell market gleaned from deep and thorough analysis of the small cell market.

Consumer femtocell growth has slowed dramatically, and Mobile Experts has established a close tracking system so that the company can be aware exactly how many femtocells are shipped each quarter. Principal Analyst Joe Madden anticipates steady linear growth in this sector based on consumer demand and worldwide broadband penetration.

Mr. Madden explained, "We believe that enterprise small cell solutions will solve problems for businesses and help to unify WiFi and licensed wireless, creating demand for enterprise small cells".

Carrier-grade small cells are expected to address the most significant problem facing the industry. Carriers are feeling the pain of limited capacity, and small cells for indoor and outdoor deployment will double each year along with the capacity required. By 2015, Mobile Experts anticipates that carrier grade small cells will rival the consumer segment in annual shipments.

From 2009 to 2012, the small-cell market has been dominated by consumer femtocells, and the growth rate has been anemic, with weak support from mobile operators and little public awareness. From 2014 to 2017, Mobile Experts predicts a dramatic rise in small cell shipments with carrier deployment of small cells to address capacity growth requirements, as shown in the image above. Joe Madden explained the rationale of this forecast in the recent Think Small Cell Analyst Shootout. During the shootout, more people agreed with Mobile Experts than the other participating analysts.

Mobile Experts uses an Advisory Panel of 30 mobile operators, multiple infrastructure OEMs, and more than 40 semiconductor companies to validate its Small Cell forecasts. The Backhaul research includes case studies on the economics of various backhaul options, to highlight where each technology is useful. The accuracy of the 2009 femtocell forecast was notable; we predicted in May of 2009 that in 2011 1.8 million small cells would be sold, and the real total was 1.9 million.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management.

Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture.

There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
