Cloud RAN Market (Radio Access Network) - by Components (Remote Radio Units, Optical Transport Network, BBU, Processors, Servers, Test & Measurement), by Services (Integration, Network) - Worldwide Market Forecasts and Analysis (2013 - 2018)

Cloud RAN (Radio Access Network) proposes a revolutionary move towards the deployment and management of next generation cellular networks. It has been witnessed that the revenue growth in mobile communications has been slow, as opposed to the surging mobile internet traffic, thereby forcing communications providers, network equipment manufacturers and the entire telecom ecosystem to diversify its products and offerings. As the incumbent infrastructure remains under-utilized with heavy investments at stake, mobile equipment providers are now turning to the cloud for enhanced efficiency and productivity of the traditional infrastructure.

Cloud RAN offers cost effective solutions to mobile operators, by consolidating the processing of base stations into single server farms, thereby providing an alternative approach to the current standards, at a lower cost. With increasing investments and surging interest from the entire cloud and READ MORE >

Cloud RAN facilitates mobile communication, by helping mobile operators in delivering high quality mobile communication services, while maintaining steady growth and profitability. The Cloud RAN architecture helps in reducing CAPEX and OPEX and increases network efficiency and performance. In the present scenario, mobile data traffic is surging due to increasing broadband availability, emergence of smartphones and other devices such as laptops and tablets. This has forced mobile operators to find a cost-effective solution to cater to the increasing consumerization of IT. Cloud RAN is set to revolutionize the mobile communication industry, wherein mobile operators have already started migrating from traditional RANs to the Cloud RAN architecture.

Cloud RAN is not a replacement of traditional RAN, but an alternative approach being deployed for better utilization of network infrastructure and base stations. The concept of Cloud RAN was initiated by China Mobile and soon after, many key players such as Intel, Huawei, AlcatelLucent, Ericsson, Nokia Siemens Networks, ZTE, IBM and Orange joined together for the development of Cloud RAN architecture. In this research report, MarketsandMarkets has segmented the Cloud RAN market into components and service segments, across various geographical regions such as North America, Europe, APAC, MEA and Latin America.
