Global Carrier Aggregation Solutions Market 2017-2021
About Carrier Aggregation Solutions
Carrier aggregation is a key aspect of LTE-A for its combination of two or more blocks of spectrum (also known as component carriers). The addition of multiple component carriers for wider channel bandwidths achieves a greater mobile Internet spectrum for mobile Internet. Carrier aggregation was introduced in 3rd Generation Partnership Program (3GPP), Release 10 (in 2011). South Korea deployed the first LTE-A network with carrier aggregation in 2013.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global carrier aggregation solutions market to grow at a CAGR of 26.93% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global carrier aggregation solutions market for 2017-2021. The report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Carrier Aggregation Solutions Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global carrier aggregation solutions market: Cisco, Nokia, and Huawei Technologies.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ZTE, Qorvo, Artiza Networks, Anritsu, and ROHDE&SCHWARZKG.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is integration of VoLTE with VoWi-Fi. Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi) extends its reach at a marginal cost. VoWi-Fi cuts down the cost for an operator as the traffic is offloaded to another network. A US carrier with around 10%-15% VoWi-Fi penetration and a national footprint might enjoy spectrum and capacity savings of half a billion dollars per year.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is high proliferation of mobile computing devices. The demand for mobile computing devices is surging among mobile users and business travelers who need connectivity and portability. Consumers are using these devices for various purposes such as surfing the web, accessing social networking apps, reading news, and checking emails. The high Internet penetration rate and the availability of high data rates at high speeds are driving the demand for mobile computing devices. At present, the network traffic is growing at an exponential rate, primarily because of the increased popularity of mobile computing devices.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is poor infrastructure of the LTE ecosystem in emerging economies. Even though the demand for high-speed network connections is increasing, a large-scale launch of these services has not taken place worldwide. The use of LTE services is higher in North America, South America, and Europe compared with APAC and the Middle East. Some of the countries in APAC, such as China, India, Australia, and Fiji, launched LTE services during 2013-2014, while operators in countries such as Cambodia, Indonesia, and Bangladesh (also in APAC) launched the services in 2015.
