New research on telecom infrastructure services addressable market forecast

According to Technology Business Research Inc.’s latest Global Telecom Infrastructure Services (TIS) Addressable Market Forecast (AMF), covering the full year 2013, the TIS market grew 2% year-to-year to $96.9 billion in 2013, driven by LTE deployments in the U.S., but growth will slow to just above 1% going forward. Chris Antlitz, a senior analyst in TBR’s Networking and Mobility Practice, said, “The TIS market will be driven by services that enable LTE deployment in the early years of the forecast, but will decline starting in 2016. Professional services will then pick up the slack as operators shift focus to implementing new business models that monetize their broadband networks and reducing capex and opex spend by employing SDN and NFV.”

Operators should deploy carrier grade Wi-Fi with their 14M outdoor small cells

As worldwide Mobile Broadband Traffic heads toward 200 Exabytes per year, operators deploy 4G LTE, LTE-A, plead for spectrum, and try to manage usage through policy and pricing.  The physics of mobile broadband radio do not follow Moore’s Law of digital scaling, so leading-edge operators are ready to address the physical realities of small cells.  Nevertheless, the question remains; why not deploy carrier grade Wi-Fi with the small cells?

Peregrine ships RF switch for TVs, set-top boxes and DVRs

Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., founder of RF SOI (silicon on insulator) and pioneer of advanced RF solutions, introduces the UltraCMOS PE42721 75-Ohm RF switch for designers of digital TV (DTV) tuner modules, cable TV (CATV) signal switching and distribution systems, multi-tuner digital video recorders (DVRs) and set-top boxes. The switch is ideal for geographic markets – such as China, Japan, Korea and Latin America – where broadband-TV devices must accommodate multiple RF inputs for cable, satellite and terrestrial reception while avoiding interference between these signals.
