Mobile Experts LLC released new research today, providing a specific forecast for pre-standard 5G deployment. The new forecast will be sent to all of the Mobile Experts 5G subscribers, to highlight the very specific plans of US operators as they ramp up deployment of wireless broadband services.
Southwest Antennas, a leading manufacturer of rugged RF and microwave antennas and accessory products, has released two new magnetic mount kits, providing users with rapid antenna deployment options anywhere there is a compatible magnetic surface, and are ideal for use on vehicles, metal desks, poles or other surfaces.
Mobile Experts released the latest Backhaul report for 2015. With an astounding amount of growth in small cells, everyone is wondering what kinds of backhaul and fronthaul will be used to facilitate that growth. In this report, the Mobile Experts analysts identify and explain which types will be crucial to this market development.
ABI Research estimates that there will be nearly 1.37 billion 4G LTE subscribers worldwide by year-end 2015, up from nearly 650 million in 2014. ABI Research forecasts that the LTE subscriber base will exceed 3.5 billion by 2020, demonstrating a 5 year CAGR of 20.8%. The exponential rise in LTE points-of-presence covered justifies the need for sustained investment in LTE infrastructure, which is expected to grow nearly 10% year-on-year.
Mobile operators worldwide can now deploy LTE, 5G and small cell networks faster with a new family of jumper cables equipped with next-generation connectors from Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), the global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist. Based on the 4.3-10 interface standard, the new addition to the RFS product portfolio leverages RFS innovations in Passive Intermodulation (PIM) and cable corrugation to deliver jumpers with the highest voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) and PIM performance available in jumper cables with similar connectors.
According to ABI Research, the pieces of the carrier Wi-Fi puzzle are falling into place as the standardization process speeds up with the recent updates on Hotspot 2.0 and commercial Next Generation Hotspot deployments counting more than 12 networks worldwide—implementing Cisco and Ruckus equipment.
LTE-Advanced network deployments are becoming a tangible reality in 2014. As of the end of 1Q 2014, ABI Research estimates there were ~60 LTE-advanced trials, commitments and commercial deployments worldwide, of which 22 commitments were from Western Europe, 16 from Asia-Pacific, and 5 from North America. In addition, Voice over LTE (VoLTE) is gaining market traction in 2014, providing voice services alongside LTE mobile broadband in a reliable and profitable way.
