Sweden’s Berg Insight predicts the number of fleet-management systems deployed in commercial vehicle fleets in North America will grow from 2.8 million in 4Q11 to nearly 6 million by 2016. In Latin America, the number of installed fleet-management systems is expected to increase to 2.8 million during the same timeframe…Shipments of indoor small cells this year probably will stay at 2011 levels, perhaps 2.44 million units.  Some 5.3 million units will be deployed by year-end, notes ABI Research’s Aditya Kaul, adding, “We believe there is a large inventory of femtocells sitting with operators right now with operators having a slow burn rate, which has led to limited fresh orders in the first half of 2012.” Some of the slack in volumes also can be attributed to attention shifting from indoor femtocells to outdoor metrocells.
