Selected Geographic Analysis done in the full report
- According to 3GPP, after testing the 5G technology for interoperability, it is expected to deploy by 2020. This will open up new avenues of opportunity for the infrastructure segment, which has been largely curtailed due to extensive global coverage for GSM, Edge and CDMA technologies.
- The introduction of 5G technology will significantly propel the infrastructure market. Though the lack of coverage in rural areas, particularly in the APAC region, is hindering the adoption of 3G and 4G network services in few regions, however, the rising rural purchasing power, particularly in India, China and Malaysia, has resulted in overcoming some of the economic obstacles in setting up a rural WRAN.
- The virtualization or cloud conversion market for RAN is reaching its peak, with maintenance and secondary services being a major focus for companies operating in this market. The significant rise in penetration of cloud technology, particularly in automotive and healthcare industries will propel the market. By 2018, market experts estimate that cloud computing will become a major factor in the healthcare RAN technology. Even though legacy systems dominate the market, C-RAN will continue eating up the market share with improving security for data transmission from these systems being a major factor for growth.
