Mobile Experts released a 94-page market study, which provides detailed analysis of Small Cells and Low Power Base Stations. In this market study, deep insights are revealed to illustrate how the mobile infrastructure market is changing to address a need for concentrated mobile traffic in multiple scenarios.
Enterprise femtocells will capture 97% of the $4.3 billion market revenue in 2019, outpacing consumer-residential femtocells, according to the latest forecast from ABI Research.
ABI Research’s latest forecast for outdoor small cells indicates a healthy 2014 growth in equipment revenue at a year-on-year rate of 33% to $1.8 billion. This growth comes thanks to operators like AT&T, Verizon, Vodafone, Telefonica, Softbank, SK Telecom, and Sprint driving shipments of both outdoor and Metrocell deployments.
TEGAM Inc., a leading supplier of innovative RF power measurements, was recently awarded Patent No. 8,558,556, “Planar-axial thermistor for bolometry.” This patent describes a novel way to construct very small planar thermistors on a substrate with very low heat transfer. The thermistors are more thermally isolated from the environment than are commercially-produced thermistors. Both the small size and thermal isolation make them useful for measuring RF power at microwave frequencies up to 70 GHz.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced its sponsorship of a small cell workshop at the 2014 Electronic Design Innovation Conference (EDI CON).
The 2014 Mobile World Congress that was held from 24 to 27 February in Barcelona is billed as an industry-defining event; though the pace at which the mobile telecommunications industry continues to evolve makes the accurate definition and prediction of trends and especially their timescale for implementation a difficult task. However, having all of the major players under one extensive roof offers the opportunity to take stock, gauge opinions, talk to innovators at the forefront of technology and hopefully be able to see the wood for the 4Gs (or is that 5Gs now?).
Texas Instruments (TI) and PureWave Networks Inc., an innovative provider of advanced, cost-effective wireless base stations, announced their collaboration on a first-of-its-kind single-board, end-to-end (ENET to RF) solution platform for enterprise and pico small cell base stations. The Hercules solutions platform utilizes TI's highly-integrated KeyStone™-based TCI6630K2L System-on-Chip (SoC), combined with TI's analog front end transceiver, the AFE7500, allowing customers to demonstrate 4G cellular functionality and performance right out of the box.
Texas Instruments (TI), and Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN), the world's specialist in mobile broadband, announced their collaboration on NSN's next generation of indoor small cell base stations. Based on NSN's Flexi Zone suite of products, the new indoor small cell base stations are expected to support a record 400 active indoor users, compared to 32 users supported today, in a power over Ethernet envelope.
MIMOon GmbH, a leading LTE software vendor for small cells and terminals, and NuRAN Wireless, a leading supplier of mobile and broadband wireless solutions,cooperate to deliver LTE small cell base stations.
Nutaq, a world leader in high-performance data acquisition and software-defined radio systems (SDR), creates a separate entity for its line of wireless end products, named NuRAN Wireless.
