Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: The adoption of carrier Wi-Fi and small cells is rising impressively in the Global Telecom industry. The small cell base stations supporting Wi-Fi capabilities are expected to emerge in the small cell configuration. With the increasing need of offloading the cellular traffic onto an alternative network, the Wi-Fi is making its way into the carrier domain. Driven by large-scale adoption and the omnipresence of Wi-Fi-enabled consumer electronic devices, the industry is expected to see the integration of Wi-Fi with the small cell base stations. Such devices have interfaces for the Wi-Fi and typical public telecom technologies at both the telecom network side and the end-user device.

According to the report, the Global Heterogeneous Networks market is driven by several factors, one of which is the unrelenting demand for mobile data applications. The steady increase in data traffic caused by smart devices plays a major role in driving the demand for carrier Wi-Fi equipment.
