DUBLIN, June 09, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/nnvhqz/the_hetnet) has announced the addition of SNS Research's new report "The HetNet Ecosystem (Small Cells, Carrier WiFi, C-RAN & DAS): 2015 - 2020 - Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies & Forecasts" to their offering.
New report indicates that spending on LTE-U smalls cell is expected to reach nearly $2 Billion by the end of 2020
LTE-U (LTE-Unlicensed) technology uses unlicensed spectrum bands to transmit LTE signals, and pairs them with licensed LTE signals to preserve the necessary control signaling and scheduling required for a reliable connection. Primarily targeting the 5 GHz WiFi spectrum, early trials of the technology have demonstrated signitificant capacity leaps. For example, Korean wireless carrier LG Uplus has demonstrated twice the speed of its commercial LTE-A service, by combining 60 MHz of unlicensed 5.8 GHz spectrum with 20 MHz in the licensed LTE spectrum.
Driven by the promise of higher capacity in unlicensed spectrum, LTE-U small cell shipments are expected to grow at a CAGR of 80% between 2016 and 2020. By the end of 2020, LTE-U small cell shipments will account for nearly $2 Billion in revenue.
The "*HetNet Ecosystem (Small Cells, Carrier WiFi, C-RAN & DAS): 2015 – 2020 – Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies & Forecasts*" report presents an in-depth assessment of 6 individual submarkets of the HetNet infrastructure opportunity, including LTE-U. Besides analyzing key market drivers, challenges, enabling technologies, standardization initiatives, future roadmap, value chain, deployment case studies, vendor profiles, and strategic recommendations, the report also presents revenue and unit shipment forecasts for 6 submarkets from 2015 to 2020 at a regional as well as a global scale. Historical figures are also provided for 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2014.
The report will be of value to current and future potential investors into the wireless sector, as well as wireless carriers, wireless network infrastructure/device providers and enabling technology providers who wish to broaden their knowledge of the ecosystem.
