Research and Markets: The Global Femtocell Equipment Market to Grow At A CAGR Of 74.76 Percent Over the Period 2011-2015

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2ch5wh/global_femtocell) has announced the addition of the "Global Femtocell Equipment Market 2011-2015" report to their offering.

One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing need for better network coverage. The Global Femtocell Equipment market has also been witnessing the emergence of fixed mobile convergence services. However, interference with macrocell networks could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The key vendors dominating this market space are Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., Airvana Corp., Alcatel-Lucent, and Cisco Systems Inc.

The other vendors mentioned in the report are NEC Corp., Ubiquisys Ltd., Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., Argela Technologies, Contela Inc., ip.access Ltd., and UbeeAirWalk Inc.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Networking team said: ''The fixed mobile convergence (FMC) service provides connectivity between fixed and wireless telecom networks. It optimizes the transmission of data, voice, and video communication. Thus, telecom operators are offering femtocell and FMC services to enterprise customers. These services include unified communication, dual mode Wi-Fi and mobile services, and mobile private branch exchanges (PBX) extension. Although a very small percentage of telecom operators deployed dual mode 3G/Wi-Fi femtocells up to 2011, the number is expected to increase by 2015.''

According to the report, there is a growing demand for better network coverage that provides a better quality of voice and video applications along with high-speed data services. Hence, MNOs have been promoting the adoption of femtocells, thus driving the market. In addition, telecom operators are benefited because they do not have to increase their macrocell networks.

Further, the report reveals that concerns for the interference of femtocell networks with macrocell networks are a challenge for the market.
