EJL Wireless Predictions 2015

China LTE deployments will continue to dominate the global wireless equipment market and supply chain

EJL Wireless Research is unveiling its predictions for wireless RAN technology for 2015 in a new white paper.

“We are releasing our predictions for 2015 for mobile RAN technology with centralized radio access network (CRAN) architecture, Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI™) fronthaul, in-building wireless, and carrier aggregation (CA) being the primary focus areas for many mobile operators worldwide” said founder and President, Earl Lum.

“We remain cautious on any large scale deployments of outdoor small cell base stations in 2015, however we are finally seeing real demand for in-building small cells targeting the enterprise market in Europe. We believe that in-building coverage is a key differentiator for mobile operators and will represent a strategic focus area in 2015,” says Lum.

Other predictions include:

China LTE deployments will continue to dominate the global wireless equipment market and supply chain

802.11ac Wave 1/Wave 2 deployments displace legacy 802.11n technology

North American mobile operators focus on LTE 2T4R RRH deployments

Strong wireless spectrum auction outlook and spectrum awards across all regions will drive continued demand for wireless infrastructure equipment

China MIIT awards FDD-LTE license to China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom

Operator M&A activity continues to drive industry consolidation

EJL Wireless Research continues to lead the wireless market research segment with innovative and cutting edge research such as its DNA-I series of products and a complete portfolio of market analysis reports from antennas to base stations and Wi-Fi to 5G technology.
