Opportunities in Broadband Leasing, a new market study that surveys growing opportunities in bandwidth leasing. The report discusses the imminent shortage of available wireless bandwidth and explores the sources of that shortage in terms of the explosive growth in wireless data traffic, and analyzes individual markets contributing to that growth in demand. Discussion of the growth and development of today's wireless networks includes new technologies such as 4G and LTE, and the offloading of data traffic off of cellular networks and onto WiFi and other types of networks.

Established fixed wired broadband (optical fiber, DSL, cable) markets are analyzed, along with the leasing opportunities already established in dark fiber and wavelength services. Finally, wireless technologies, particularly millimeter waves and TV white space, are presented with a thorough analysis of the markets available to them, in terms of both system sales and leasing opportunities.

The report separates hype from reality and assesses the dramatically changing landscape facing telecommunications providers, and the opportunities for them and others who are prepared to address the dramatic opportunities READ MORE >
