Research and Markets: The HetNet Bible (Small Cells, Carrier WiFi, DAS & C-RAN) 2014-2020: Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies, & Forecasts - Mobile Fronthaul a $3 Billion Opportunity
DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/xcx8pp/the_hetnet_bible) has announced the addition of Signals and Systems Telecom's new report "The HetNet Bible (Small Cells, Carrier WiFi, DAS & C-RAN): 2014 - 2020 - Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies, & Forecasts" to their offering.
“*HetNet Bible (Small Cells, Carrier WiFi, DAS & C-RAN): 2014 - 2020 - Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies, & Forecasts*”
Spending on mobile fronthaul infrastructure for C-RAN and small cell networks is expected to reach nearly $3 Billion by 2020.
Given the high costs of direct fiber connectivity used for the very first C-RAN (Cloud Radio Access Network) deployments, fronthaul is widely seen as the biggest challenge towards the adoption of C-RAN.
However, an increasing number of deployment are now considering cost-effective alternative options for fronthaul such as WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing), OTN (Optical Transmission Network) and even microwave. Besides easing the deployment of C-RAN, the emergence of cost effective fronthaul solutions has also opened other avenues, such as moving radio traffic from additional low power small cells within a macrocell, to improve coverage and increase the overall cell capacity.
SNS Research estimates infrastructure spending on mobile fronthaul solutions will grow at a CAGR of nearly 40%, between 2014 and 2020. By the end of 2020, mobile fronthaul investments will account for $2.6 Billion in revenue.
