Femtocells Gain Traction, Set To Explode This Year
Globally, the femtocell market, including 2G, 3G, and 4G technology, was up 66 percent in 4Q12 compared with 3Q12, notes Infonetics Research. For all of last year, the market totaled $425 million, up 21 percent from 2011. Reports Richard Webb, directing analyst/Microwave and Carrier Wi-Fi, “Price per unit is eroding and shipment volumes are rising, but both are intrinsically linked and neither has happened fast enough to drive a more rapid acceleration in adoption to date.” He adds femtocells have enough traction to drive continuous annual revenue and unit growth through at least 2017, especially this year as operators buy and deploy 3G and 4G units. The top three femtocell marketshare leaders are Airvana, Samsung and Cisco/ip.access.
