Close to 80% of base station silicon will be SoC based by 2017

ABI Research expects sales of base station processors to grow at 17 percent annually and reach $1.1 billion in 2017 driven by the growth in compact format femto-, pico-, and microcell small cell basestations, which will account for the majority of the processor market in 2017. With macrocells declining at 13 percent per year over the next 5 years, and microcells growing at a modest 7 percent the large growth in picocells and outdoor femtocells will consume the majority of next generation base station processors.

Small cell semiconductors: 0 to $500 M in 5 years

A new forecast predicts dramatic growth in the semiconductor market supporting small cells, from $90 million in 2012 to more than $650 million in 2017. In particular, semiconductors supporting carrier-grade small cells (excluding consumer and enterprise femtocells) will ramp from practically zero revenue in 2012 to a staggering $500 million in 2017.

Colt Technology Services, NEC commence mobile operator trials with Femto as a service

Colt Technology Services in partnership with NEC, announced that it is conducting the first ever live trials of small cells using Femto-as-a-Service (FaaS) with a leading, large-scale European mobile operator, using a multi-operator small cell (Femto) gateway. The FaaS offer from Colt breaks down the investment barrier for mobile operators to start their own Small Cell service as it eliminates the need for mobile operators to have a dedicated Femto Gateway in the operator core.

C4I’s new collection of perceptive, transportable communication systems are smaller, smarter, sleeker

Communication devices for the public safety, utilities, transportation, military, and other “second responder” sectors are often characterized by images of clunky, large instruments that look like they require a master’s degree to operate. Yet these are the type of urgent communication systems that should be quick and easy to operate in order to protect and save lives.
