As governments, the world over, open up their telecom industries to competition through intensive deregulations, there exists a fertile environment for new and emerging technologies like Wireless Local Loop (WLL). The rise of the internet and the expansion of telecommunication services from basic voice-only services to multimedia services, and the resulting burden on existing wireline telecommunication networks, offer strong economic fundamentals for the proliferation of the WLL technology worldwide. A primary demand driver for WLL equipments is the need for faster and cheaper means of telecommunication service deployment to meet the ever-growing demand for telecom services.

Growth drivers in the developing markets include diluted teledensities, rapidly expanding demand for basic plain old telephone services, and high costs and complexities of wireline network installations, among others. In the developed markets with saturated demand for basic voice services, growth opportunities stem from adroit recalibration of the technology to provide a service edge in the form of uncluttering the wireline network by splitting the transmitted voice, and data traffic over both wireless and wireline networks. Datacentric advantages of WLL in extending high value, premium data services in developed markets is expected to ensure the technology’s success and sustenance in these markets. Ease and speed of implementation, low cost, prompt customer services, higher levels of scalability, versatility, and reliability offered, are all expected to help WLL emerge into a strong technology in markets with both advanced and emerging wireless networking infrastructures.

Asia Pacific represents a large and a robust market for WLL Equipment with a potential to grow at a CAGR of 17.23% over the years 2011 through 2015. In Europe, Eastern Europe dominates the market, with Russia, Ukraine and Baltic States forecast to witness revenue turnover to the tune of $1,229 million by the year 2012. The market in Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovenia, together is expected to reach $300 million by the year 2015, as stated by the recent report published by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.
