Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “The adoption of carrier Wi-Fi and small cells is rising impressively in the Global Telecom industry. The small cell base stations supporting Wi-Fi capabilities are expected to emerge in the small cell configuration. With the increasing need of offloading the cellular traffic onto an alternative network the Wi-Fi is making its way into the carrier domain. Driven by large-scale adoption and the omnipresence of Wi-Fi-enabled consumer electronic devices, the industry is expected to see the integration of Wi-Fi with the small cell base stations. Such devices have interfaces for the Wi-Fi and typical public telecom technologies at both the telecom network side and the end-user device. The unit shipment of Wi-Fi-enabled small cells is expected to grow during the forecast period.”

According to the report, the Global Heterogeneous Networks market is driven by several factors, one of which is the unrelenting demand for mobile data applications. The steady increase in data traffic caused by smart devices plays a major role in driving the demand for carrier Wi-Fi equipment.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the interference among devices. The biggest advantage of Wi-Fi networks is that they work in the unlicensed spectrum, thus helping operators reduce costs. On the other hand, the unlicensed spectrum is available to all operators and users. This causes interference among the networks and devices, resulting in declining quality of service and user experience. The small cell technology is faring the worst in the interference situation. Therefore, telecom operators refrain from adopting HetNets.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
