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.
