Broadband connectivity is a critical factor for an increasing number of mobile devices to provide network and Internet connectivity. As a result, the integration of baseband technology into mobile platforms like handset, computing devices, and mobile CE devices will continue to increase. At the same time, existing 3G networks are being stressed by data traffic that is increasing at exponential levels increasing the need to transition to 4G networks.

This report examines technical and market dynamics surrounding the integration of baseband modems in mobile devices.

70% of all Mobile Devices to be Baseband Modem enabled by 2014

The transition to 4G communication standards has begun, but the transition will be slow, reports In-Stat (http://www.in-stat.com). One indication of the sluggish pace: While 70% of mobile devices will be baseband-enabled by 2014, only 3.6% of mobile devices with baseband connectivity will be using 4G standards. This is the case even though existing 3G networks are being stressed by data traffic that is increasing at exponential levels.
