Trends in Today’s Evolving Radio Access Network (RAN) Environment : Remote Radio Head (RRH), Centralized RAN (C-RAN), Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS), and 5G are the Future of Wireless Networks

Mobile operators are aggressively and proactively harnessing advanced optimization technologies to ensure better coverage. They are identifying gaps in coverage and dynamically determining bandwidth needs as well as optimizing networks in real time for the sake of efficiency. Mobile operators prefer solutions from established participants that can offer end-to-end solutions as well as address legacy network deployments. Therefore, such market entrants could witness growth in the short term, but could later stagnate or be acquired by more established participants.

Densification of Networks

Key Takeaway: Global mobile data traffic is increasing rapidly due to the increasing number of smart devices.

-Mobile wireless communications experienced explosive growth over the last ten years fueled by the popularity of smartphones and tablets. The industry has taken on the challenge of supporting a 1000-fold increase in data-traffic demand over the next decade.
- Operators are looking to lower the number of devices and users per cell, especially in high traffic areas to address the overwhelming growth in mobile data.
- This is where the term ‘densification of networks’ comes into play; it refers to the increasing number and variety of base stations and access points such as eNodeBs, small cells, and relays.
- According to Cisco’s Visual Network Index, global mobile data traffic grew by % in 2014.
- Global mobile data traffic reached exabytes per month at the end of 2014, up from exabytes per month at the end of 2013. In 2019, this number is expected to exceed 24 exabytes per month.
