Global LTE Base Station (eNodeB) Market - Forecasts to 2016

DUBLIN, February 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/s79bxj/global_lte_base) has announced the addition of the "Global LTE Base Station (eNodeB) Market - Forecasts to 2016" report to their offering.

Like LTE, the carrier Wi-Fi is pacing fast in the Global Telecom industry. With the increasing need of offloading the cellular traffic onto an alternative network, Wi-Fi is making way into the carrier domain. Driven by large-scale LTE adoption and the omnipresence of Wi-Fi-enabled consumer electronic devices, the industry is expected to see the integration of Wi-Fi with the LTE small cell base stations. Such devices will have an LTE interface at the telecom network side and a Wi-Fi interface at the end-user device. The small cell LTE base stations supporting Wi-Fi capabilities are expected to emerge in the LTE small cell configuration. The Wi-Fi enabled LTE base stations are expected to cross 2 million units shipment by 2016.

According to the report, one of the main drivers is the increasing demand for data services. In recent years, the Telecom industry has witnessed a surge in data driven services, a trend that is likely to continue during the forecast period. Such services require higher bandwidth, greater speed, and better coverage. LTE is accepted to be the most efficient mobile technology to cater to the increasing data services. Since base stations of different specifications can be deployed to cover and process the RF signals in cells as well as in blind spots for these services, the steady growth in the Mobile Data market will boost the demand for the Global LTE Base Station market.

Further, the report states that one of the main challenges is the overarching dominance of HSPA/HSPA+ technology. HSPA and LTE are the two technologies for handling the unstoppable data services. Given HSPA's first mover advantage and relatively evolved ecosystem, HSPA poses a major threat to the growth of LTE technology. During the forecast period, there will be a continued tussle between LTE and HSPA acceptance. Depending on factors such as cost and bandwidth, the operators around the world will adopt either of the technologies.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.

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. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. 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. 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, ...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment.

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
