Driving Super-fast Connectivity in the 4G/LTE Era

Formerly treated as a luxury in developed nations, mobile broadband speeds are quickly becoming a global norm. Ubiquitous high-speed connectivity is being engendered by network operators and national governments alike. Networks are making their foray into fibre backbones, which will facilitate the installation of LTE small cells and push heterogeneous networks forward. Visiongain has calculated that global mobile broadband revenue will reach $231 billion in 2013.

Emerging markets will play a central role in mobile broadband market expansion. Whereas developed mobile markets such as those of Japan, Sweden, and Korea are reaching saturation, China, India, Indonesia, and the like are becoming hotbeds for smartphone proliferation. Many of these have lower smartphone penetration rates, rising per capita income, and a strong tendency towards FMS, trends that indicate a prosperous, fast-growing immediate future for mobile broadband.

Dominated by HSPA, the mobile broadband market is set to grow hand-in-hand with fixed broadband, LBS, IPTV, automotive connectivity, and mobile VoIP. Strong and diverse offerings from OEMs, rapid 3G/4G deployment tables from operators, and increasing receptiveness from regulators all point to a surging mobile broadband ecosystem that is prepared to keep pace with expanding consumer demand.
