Research and Markets: Global Self-organizing Networks Market Forecasts & Opportunities, 2018

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/9jsc87/global) has announced the addition of the "Global Self-organizing Networks Market Forecasts & Opportunities, 2018" report to their offering.

There are several factors driving the growth of the Global SONs market, one of which is the increasing demand for broadband services. In recent years, the Telecom industry has witnessed a surge in data-driven services, a trend that is likely to continue during the forecast period. Such services require higher bandwidth, greater speed, and better coverage. LTE has been recognized as the most efficient mobile technology to cater to the increase in data services, since base stations of different specifications can be deployed to cover and process RF signals in cells as well as in blind spots for these services.

At present, fixed-line broadband does not have a considerable presence in developing countries such as India, mainly because of the high cost of the related infrastructure. Consequently, the option of mobile broadband is attractive in such countries. It is expected that there will be rapid adoption of mobile broadband access in both developed and emerging markets during the forecast period. In recent years, the increase in mobile wireless data has been particularly high in emerging countries. Broadband accessibility through mobile devices is now a high priority for people in these countries.

Further, the report states that one of the main challenges is the spectrum fragmentation. With the influx of several operators in the market and the costly spectrum, the frequency bands have been fragmented in order to accommodate several technologies and telecom operators. This is a major challenge for the LTE technology, which requires large bandwidth for operations. Depending on factors such as cost and bandwidth, the operators around the world will adopt the technology.

Key vendors dominating this space include:

  • Alcatel-Lucent SA
  • Ericsson AB
  • Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd.
  • Nokia Solutions and Networks Oy
  • ZTE Corp.

Other companies mentioned in the report are:

  • Amdocs Inc
  • Aircom International Ltd
  • Airhop Communications Inc
  • Aricent Group
  • Ascom Network Testing Ltd
  • Astellia SA
  • Celcite Management Solutions LLC
  • Celtro Communication Ltd.
  • Centri Technology Inc
  • Cisco Systems Inc
  • Eden Rock Communications LLC
  • Infovista SA
  • InterDigital Inc
  • JDSU Corp.
  • Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd.
  • Teoco Corp
  • Xceed Technologies Inc.
