BOSTON, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With data traffic growing rapidly in Chile, investments in NGN networks will continue to offer opportunities for vendors in the 3G, Long Term Evolution (LTE), fiber and cable segments, according to a new report from Pyramid Research (www.pyr.com).
Chile: Operators Speed up 4G and NGN Deployments to Cope with Growing Demand for Content and Applications offers a precise profile of the country's telecommunications, media and technology sectors based on proprietary data from Pyramid's research in the market. It provides a detailed competitive analysis of both the fixed and mobile sectors, tracks the market shares of technologies and services and monitors the introduction and spread of new technologies.
"Chile's top mobile carriers, which have already started to roll out their LTE networks across the country, will keep expanding and upgrading their existing 3G networks in order to cope with increasing data traffic, particularly in rural areas," says Pyramid Research Senior Analyst Eulalia Marín-Sorribes. The commercial launch of 4G services toward the end of the year will also trigger demand for 4G-compatible handsets at affordable prices. On the fixed side, cable operators and telecom carriers will continue to focus on expanding their transmission capacity in Chile's largest metropolitan areas, particularly as more IPTV and over-the-top (OTT) offerings become available, she notes.
