Wireless Security in LTE Networks and M2M: Market and Forecasts 2015 – 2020

Wireless Security in LTE Networks and M2M: Market and Forecasts 2015 – 2020

The Fourth generation (4G) Long Term Evolution (LTE) standard for cellular communications represents a substantial leap forward in terms of capacity and services capabilities. However, it also presents a unique challenge as its all-IP nature exposes vulnerabilities that were heretofore not substantial concerns. LTE network planners need to address many physical and logical security aspects. For example, there is a critical need to protect the communication links between UEs, base stations, and the EPC network from protocol attacks and physical intrusions.

This research is highly recommended for anyone involved in LTE network planning, device procurement, and/or application development and management. The report evaluates the state of threats (malware, cyber-attacks, etc.), solutions, and the overall market for wireless security in cellular with an emphasis on LTE and M2M networks. This report includes forecasting for the period 2015 - 2020. All purchases of Mind Commerce reports includes time with an expert analyst who will help you link key findings in the report to the business issues you're addressing. This needs to be used within three months of purchasing the report.

Target Audience:

General Methodology

Mind Commerce Publishing's research methodology encompasses input from a wide variety of sources.

We rely heavily upon our Subject Matter Experts (SME) in terms of their market knowledge, unique perspective, and vision. We utilize SME industry contacts as well as previous customers and participants in our market surveys and interactive interviews.

In addition, we rely upon our extensive internal database, which contains modeling, qualitative analysis, and quantitative data. We review secondary sources and compare to our primary sources to update previous findings (for prior version reports) and/or compile baseline information for technology and market modeling.

We share preliminary models with industry contacts (select previous clients, experts, and thought leaders) to verify the veracity of initial modeling. Prior to final report production (analysis, findings, and conclusions), we engage in an internal review with internal SMEs as well as cross-expertise, senior staff members to challenge results.

We believe that forecasts should be prepared as part of an integrated process which involves both quantitative as well as qualitative factors. We follow the following 3-step process for forecasting.

Forecasting Methodology

Step 1 - Forecasts Input: The inputs for the present and historical revenues are derived from industry players. Financial and other quantitative data for individual sub-market categories are derived from original research and tested with interviews with major industry constituents.

Step 2 - Forecasting of Future Years: Mind Commerce extends forecasts based on a variety of factors including demand drivers as well as supply side data. Key success factors and assumptions are considered.

Step 3 - Validation of Data: The final step is to validate projections, which is accomplished in consultation with both internal and external industry experts, including both topic and regional experts. Adjustments are made to the forecasts based on factors identified throughout this process.
