'The Global Hetnets Market is Expected to Reach $19.2 Billion in 2016' Says Latest visiongain Report


LONDON, November 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Visiongain's latest management report "Small Cells Report 2011-2016: Analysing the Business Case of Heterogeneous Networks" offers an in-depth analysis of all the latest developments in this exciting and emerging market.  

Smartphones and tablets are becoming devices of choice for consumers. With increasing mobility advantage offered by these devices, consumers have come to expect a high standard of network connectivity at all times. As a result, the data traffic has increased from 0.24 exabytes/ month in 2010 to 0.6 exabytes/ month in 2011.

The solution for the rising wireless broadband capacity crunch through heterogeneous networks (Hetnets) comprising of macro cells and a range of small cell solutions namely micro cells, pico cells, carrier Wi-Fi and femto cells is discussed within this report. In addition, the report provides industry viewpoints, case studies and diverse scenario analysis.

The small cells market is in its nascent stages and stakeholders are still considering best approach to deployment. Femto cell vendors have succeeded in developing operational and automated deployment features that are critical to the small cell networks. Visiongain expects both pico cells and carrier metro cells to become fully proven and complete solutions by 2013.

In addition, carrier Wi-Fi is a complementary technology to small cell technology and can act as both stress-relief for congested mobile networks and as an alternative in case of delays to the 3G/ 4G small cell technologies deployments. By analysing this and similar developments, we provide an insight into the best approach to Hetnets deployment and revenue channels.

The report analyses the strategies of key stakeholders in the small cells ecosystem. Visiongain believes that understanding the competitive landscape and identifying voids will help the players in designing monetising strategies and gain early movers advantage.
