Mobile Network Chips Worldwide Market

Trends in the fast-changing world of mobile wireless services point to slowly decreasing revenues for base station chipmakers over the next several years, according to the latest market study by In-Stat.

Providers are upgrading to the fastest cellular phone network technology as quickly as they can, but doing it while keeping price pressure on infrastructure equipment makers, the high-tech market research firm says.

Further adding to price pressures are Chinese and other low-cost Asian semiconductor makers that have recently become more prominent in the worldwide semiconductor market.

"Semiconductor revenue from base stations is forecast to drop over the next few years," says Allen Nogee, In-Stat analyst. "In these next five years, WiMAX infrastructure semiconductors will make-up a small part of this shortfall, as will other infrastructures, such as mobile TV networks, but these networks likely won't be able to totally fill the gap."

The research report covers the worldwide market for cellular base station components. It examines some of the factors influencing both the base-station semiconductor, and the cellular power amp and power amp semiconductor markets.

Five-year forecasts are included for new base stations, base-station semiconductor revenue, cellular power amps, and power amp semiconductor revenue broken out by CDMA, GSM, and WCDMA.

In-Stat's market study found the following:

- Base station semiconductor revenue is forecast to decrease slowly over the next five years.

- GSM semiconductor revenue remains strong, driven by capacity expansion in developing countries.

- The number of power amps shipped is forecast to decrease from 5 million in 2007 to 3 million by 2011.

Software-Defined Infrastructure: The Platform of Choice

As more organizations adapt to a hybrid working model for their distributed workforce, enterprise CIOs and CTOs are tasked with delivering new productivity-enabling applications, while also seeking ways to effectively reduce IT cost, complexity, and risk. Traditional IT hardware infrastructure is evolving to more software-based solutions. The worldwide software-defined infrastructure (SDI) combined software market reached $12.17 billion during 2020 -- that's an increase of 5 percent over 2019, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). The market grew faster than other core IT technologies. The three technology pillars within the SDI market are: software-defined compute (53 percent of market value), software-defined storage controller (36 percent), and software-defined networking (11 percent). "Software-defined infrastructure solutions have long been popular for companies looking to eliminate cost, complexity, and risk within their data cente

Digital Identity Verification Market to Reach $16.7B

As more enterprise organizations embrace the ongoing transition to digital business transformation, CIOs and CTOs are adopting new technologies that enable the secure identification of individuals within their key stakeholder communities. A "digital identity" is a unique representation of a person. It enables individuals to prove their physical identity during transactions. Moreover, a digital identity is a set of validated digital attributes and credentials for online interactions -- similar to a person's identity within the physical world. Individuals can use a 'digital ID' to be verified through an authorized digital channel. Usually issued or regulated by a national ID scheme, a digital identity serves to identify a unique person online or offline. Digital Identity Systems Market Development Complementary to more traditional forms of identification, digital identity verification systems can enhance the authenticity, security, confidentiality, and efficiency of

Global Pandemic Accelerates the Evolution of Transportation

Given the current trends across the globe, organizations that depend upon the continued growth of personal vehicle ownership will need to consider a plan-B scenario. While some companies will be able to adapt, others may find that their traditional business model has been totally disrupted. According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) will displace over 2.2 billion private car journeys by 2025 -- that's rising from 471 million in 2021. Juniper believes that for MaaS to enjoy widespread adoption, subscription or on-the-go packages need to offer a strong combination of transport modes along with feasible infrastructure changes, high potential for data collection and low barriers to MaaS deployments. Mobility-as-a-Service Market Development The concept of MaaS involves the provision of multi-modal end-to-end travel services through a single platform by which users can determine the best route and price according to real-time traffic
