The 2G, 3G and 4G Wireless Network Infrastructure Market: 2014 - 2020 - with an Evaluation of WiFi and WiMAX

NEW YORK, Jan. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

The 2G, 3G and 4G Wireless Network Infrastructure Market: 2014 – 2020 – with an Evaluation of WiFi and WiMAX
http://www.reportlinker.com/p01972771/The-2G-3G-and-4G-Wireless-Network-Infrastructure-Market-2014-–-2020-–-with-an-Evaluation-of-WiFi-and-WiMAX.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Wireless_Technology

The wireless network infrastructure market is currently in a phase of transition as mobile network operators seek to address increasing mobile traffic demands amidst global economic uncertainties. This paradigm shift is bringing new challenges and opportunities to infrastructure vendors.

In 2013, global 2G, 3G and 4G wireless infrastructure revenues stood at $52 Billion. SNS Research estimates that these revenues, from macrocell Radio Access Network (RAN) and core network investments will remain flat in 2014. However, the market is expected to decline at a CAGR of 2% over the next 6 years, eventually shrinking to $47 Billion by the end of 2020.

Although, the new wave of 4G LTE macrocell Radio Access Network (RAN) and core network investments will not be able to compensate the overall declines in 2G, 3G and WiMAX equipment sales, operators are expected to significantly increase their spending in the evolving HetNet market, which encompasses small cell, carrier WiFi, Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) and cloud RAN equipment. Small cell and carrier WiFi equipment alone will represent a market worth $4 Billion in 2015. Supplemented further by DAS and Cloud RAN investments, the HetNet sector is attracting considerable attention from both established vendors as well as startups which solely focus on the market.

Spanning over 842 pages, "The 2G, 3G and 4G Wireless Network Infrastructure Market: 2014 – 2020 – with an Evaluation of WiFi and WiMAX"report package encompasses two comprehensive reports from covering both the conventional 2G, 3G and 4G wireless network infrastructure market as well as the HetNet market:

• The Wireless Network Infrastructure Bible: 2014 – 2020 - Macrocell RAN, Small Cells, RRH, DAS, Cloud RAN, Carrier WiFi, Mobile Core & Backhaul
• The HetNet Bible (Small Cells and Carrier WiFi) - Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies and Forecasts: 2013 – 2020 – With an Evaluation of DAS & Cloud RAN

This report package provides an in-depth assessment of the 2G, 3G and 4G wireless network infrastructure market and also explores the HetNet and the mobile backhaul markets. Besides analyzing the key market drivers, challenges, regional CapEx commitments and vendor strategies, the report package also presents revenue and unit shipment forecasts for the wireless network infrastructure, small cell, WiFi offload, DAS, cloud RAN and the mobile backhaul markets from 2014 to 2020 at a regional as well as a global scale. Historical figures and vendor shares are also provided for 2010 till 2013.

The report package comes with an associated Excel datasheet suite covering quantitative data from all numeric forecasts presented in the two reports.

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. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
