  • IDC

This IDC study examines the cellular equipment market as defined by technologies such as GSM, UMTS (including HSPA variants), LTE, and CDMA. It presents a five-year forecast for cellular infrastructure spending by network operators and service providers worldwide for cellular radio, core, and wireless backhaul. It also studies the performance of equipment vendors and evaluates the key deployment trends driving operator spending.

"After a year of slow growth in wireless investment, MNOs are picking up pace, albeit cautiously, in spending in 2014 and 2015. An intelligent consumer behavior driven by smart devices with high processing power will drive up the demand for capacity. MNOs grappling with subscription price wars and customer churn are exploring new ways of infrastructure investment that can balance operating expense versus offering high quality of experience, " says Sathya Atreyam, research manager for IDC's Wireless Network Infrastructure practice.
