London, UK (PRWEB) September 05, 2014
Small cells, carrier WiFi, DAS (distributed antenna systems) and C-RAN (cloud radio access networks) infrastructure is set to account for more than 50% of all mobile data traffic by 2015-end, whilst overall investments in the HetNet ecosystem are expected to amount to USD 20 billion in 2020. HetNet infrastructure is projected to carry over 70% of total data traffic on mobile networks by the end of the forecast period, which will comprise USD 380 billion in revenue from mobile data services.
To date, the HetNet value chain is very fragmented with incumbent macrocell vendors and pure-play companies vying for a larger market share. The value chain is expected to consolidate in the next few years following a series of acquisitions by industry behemoths like Intel, Nokia, Ericsson, and Cisco.
Eying the driving power behind C-RAN and small cell deployments, some DAS vendors, like Kathrein-Werke KG and BTI Wireless, have developed C-RAN and small cell offerings. Enterprise RAN investments based on a combination of coordination and small cells platforms are poised to reach USD 5 billion in 2020. Mobile fronthaul solution investments are likely to grow at around 40% CAGR during 2014-2020, accounting for close to USD 2.6 billion in revenue by the end of the projected period.
