Femtocell Shipments will Reach 31.8 Million by 2014

Femtocells and enterprise femtocells are going to help mobile phone operators provide indoor coverage to their subscribers, while at the same time, relieve network backhaul and infrastructure costs, according to the latest market study by In-Stat.

Although all segments of the emerging compact base station market -- which includes indoor and metropolitan picocells as well as microcells -- are expected to show growth, femtocells and enterprise femtocells will have the most significant increase in unit shipments.

In-Stat forecasts that annual femtocell shipments will reach 31.8 million by 2014.

"Enterprise femtocells may even save businesses money. If PBX features are incorporated into enterprise femtocells, they could displace many wireless PBX and IP PBX installs, as well as the purchase of wireline phones," says Allen Nogee, Principal Analyst at In-Stat.

Additionally, In-Stat expects consumer demand for femtocells to be strong, because they allow better in-home cell coverage, which has been especially lacking in the U.S. market.

In-Stat's market study found the following:

- Worldwide annual enterprise femtocell revenue CAGR will be 125.7 percent from 2009-2014.

- Worldwide metropolitan picocell (carrier installed) unit forecast CAGR is projected at 378 percent from 2009 to 2014.

- Microcell base stations will also increase but at a slower CAGR of 14.2 percent over the same five-year period.

- By 2014, several million metropolitan picocells will be shipped to operators worldwide.

Mobility-as-a-Service Creates Disruptive Travel Options

Building on significant advances in big data, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT), more innovative transit service offerings aim to increase public transport ridership and reduce emissions or congestion within metropolitan areas. By providing these services through smartphone apps, the transit services also significantly increase user convenience, providing information on different human mobility offerings -- including public transport, ridesharing, and autonomous vehicles. Mobility-as-a-Service Market Development According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) subscribers will generate $53 billion in revenue for MaaS platform providers by 2027 -- that's rising from $5.3 billion in 2021. Let's start with a basic definition. MaaS is the provision of multi-modal end-to-end travel services through single platforms, by which users can determine an optimal route and price. The study identified a monthly subscription model as key to incr

Robocall Mitigation Solutions to Halt Criminal Threats

If you answer the phone and hear a recorded message instead of a live person, it's likely a robocall. A robocall is a phone call that uses a computerized autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message. In 2020, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) received 2.8 million consumer complaints about robocalls. Offering solutions to robocalling and associated fraudulent business practices, computerized mitigation platforms are an integral part of the solution. Platforms that are focused on actionable systems to disrupt unsolicited and potentially criminal phone calls help telecom service providers and industry regulators. Issues of whether one-size-fits-all developments are sufficient to be effective across the spectrum need to be addressed, and whether a single telecom network operator working unilaterally with a third-party platform could compromise desired or mandatory industry-wide standards. Robocall Mitigation Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Jun

Upside for New 5G Network Transport Infrastructure

The global mobile communication sector is in the midst of a significant network infrastructure upgrade to support the introduction of new high-bandwidth and low-latency broadband service offerings.  Telecom service provider data centers have an important role in fifth-generation (5G) network deployments. Providers undergoing their transition to Stand-Alone (SA) 5G must understand the technical demands of telco data centers and the key enablers of those offerings. According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, the major prerequisites of 5G and the emerging transport solutions would help operators position themselves to successfully capitalize on the new revenue opportunities from delivering differentiated 5G connectivity services. 5G Transport Network Market Development "The rise of the telco data center has a high degree of confluence with the requirements of SA 5G architectures. SA 5G and its increasing reliance on telco data centers can be attributed to the incr
