Report Details
As smartphones and tablets have become increasingly ubiquitous, the increasing mobility advantage offered by these devices means that consumers have come to expect a high standard of network connectivity at all times. Consequently, global data traffic increased from 820 petabytes/month in 2012 to 1.5 exabytes/month in 2013 and 2.8 exabytes/month in 2014. In 2015, visiongain expects the average global data traffic will have reached 4.6 exabytes per month.

Therefore operators are finding themselves in a capacity crunch, vying to increase network capacity and mobile broadband to meet the challenge of providing the quality of experience that end-users expect of next-generation networks yet without incurring crippling capital and operational expenditures.

Heterogeneous networks are the leading solution to emerge. Carrier Wi-Fi in particular has been embraced by operators as the preferred means for data offloading. In high traffic areas, this method allows operators to shift data transmissions to a Wi-Fi network as opposed to taxing cellular bandwidth.

2014 marked the advent of Hotspot 2.0, a Wireless Broadband Alliance standard that allows compatible phones to shift seamlessly and automatically between Wi-Fi and cellular networks. This technology will not only be a boon for the burgeoning carrier Wi-Fi market, but also change the way that operators approach urban network planning and strategy in the LTE era.

Visiongain expects a total of 5.95 million Hotspot 2.0 sites to be deployed globally by the end of 2015.

As the developed markets begin to move towards comprehensive LTE coverage, Carrier Wi-Fi will become an integral part of network architecture. The industry is witnessing a tremendous shift in network strategy and planning, one that revolves around a more intricate nexus of compact, high-performance elements.

The Carrier Wi-Fi market will experience high double-digit growth through the forecast period, simultaneously driving innovation in fibre-optic and multi-gigabit millimetre wave backhaul, IP-based core networks, heterogeneous and self-organising networks. These are the optimal and inevitable solutions to industry-wide questions on mobile network capacity.
