Global Small Cell Market 2017-2021

About Small Cell

Small cells are low-powered radio access nodes, and they operate in licensed bands. These are used in indoor and densely populated areas to provide better wireless network coverage. The coverage area of small cells varies from more than 32 feet to a few miles, which is comparatively less than that of mobile macrocells. The types of small cells that are commonly used by telecom operators globally include femtocells, picocells, microcells, and metrocells. Small cell base stations play an important role in expanding the capacity of wireless networks.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global small cell market to grow at a CAGR of 18.80% during the period 2017-2021.Covered in this report

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Small Cell Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global small cell market: Cisco, Ericsson, Huawei, Nokia, and ZTE.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Airspan, Alpha Networks, American Tower, Argela, Broadcom, CommScope, D-Link, Edgewater Wireless Systems, EION Wireless, Gemtek Technology, GENBAND, Handlink Technologies, Hay Systems, HPE, Hitachi, ip.access, Juni Global, NEC, Qualcomm, Quortus, Rakon, Ruckus Wireless, SpiderCloud Wireless, TEKTELIC Communications, Texas Instruments, and Ubiquiti Networks.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is telecom firms inclining toward millimeter wave solutions. The millimeter wave technology involves the transmission of information through radio waves with a wavelength in the range between 1 mm and 10 mm. It provides higher bandwidth and plays a major role in mobile backhaul and wireless communication. There is an increase in the use of millimeter wave for backhaul of small cells and macrocells.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is proliferation of small cells. Small cell technology has been a major advancement in mobile network development, which plays an important role in expanding the capacity of wireless networks. It provides flexibility and increases the service quality at an economical cost.

Further, the report states that the high cost of acquisition, the high installation cost of the small cell network, little security for the remotely placed outdoor power systems are some of the concerns that are expected to hinder the market growth. Also, large organizations in the industry are compelled to adhere to the stringent spectrum regulations laid by the telecommunication standard organizations.
