Telecom Network Report 2017: A Network Revolution - HetNet and Densification, Towers & Small Cells, Network Virtualisation A time of transition 1G to 5G Hardware to Software - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Telecom Network Report Edition 4 2017 - A Network Revolution" report to their offering.

We are in the midst of a telecoms revolution. The technology has moved so fast that it is always approaching obsolescence, and never more so than now as the innovation cycles accelerate. 3G increased the demands on the systems and 4G escalated the volume of data traffic beyond anyone's expectations, changing usage patterns.

5G will drive demand even further, and will require new e xpanded capabilities. At the same time, earnings are under pressure as ARPU declines. The operators have to grow capabilities and do it more cheaply. The first solution is the HetNet, densifying the networks and providing greater capacity for data traffic, with better Quality of Service for users inside buildings.

To deliver this from the core to the Modern telecoms networks contain an ever-increasing variety of proprietary hardware. The second solution is the key enabling technology of Network Virtualisation (NV). NV can deliver network functionality via software running on industry-standard commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware. Virtual networks are decoupled from the underlying network hardware. This is already happening in production networks across the world. It is enabling 4G and making the 5G revolution possible.

The report covers six broad fields of information:

  • The existing and traditional infrastructure of the networks and operators, base stations and backhaul, and limitations for today's volume of data traffic and QoS.
  • The development of the generations of wireless technology from 1G to 5G is charted and analysed
  • The state of the telecoms market is quantified and forecast to 2021 for all countries.
  • The explosion of data traffic as data overtakes voice is drowning the networks capacity, revealing shortfalls and inflating costs in a market with declining earnings.

The future is already with us:

  • The HetNet solutions for increasing network capacity and quality of service are outlined.
  • Virtualisation is already well established in IT and industry. It is now being introduced and refined for the telecoms sector, bringing greater agility and flexibility, and reducing costs. The reports explains what network virtualisation is and reviews its current status.
