AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 02/14/14 -- As mobile data traffic continues its exponential growth, mobile operators are pursuing a multi-pronged approach to upgrading and backfilling for capacity and throughput on their cellular networks. This heterogeneous network (Het-Net) approach combines RAN upgrades, new licensed spectrum, WiFi, small cells and distributed antenna systems (DAS).
iGR, a market research consultancy focused on the wireless and mobile industry, has released several major research studies recently, which analyze and provide detailed market forecasts for various small cell and het-net architectures. Following is a list of the studies, which can be purchased and downloaded directly from iGR's website, iGR-inc.com
- Het-Net Data Traffic Forecast, 2013 - 2018
This report is based on a traffic model that determines how much cellular data, wired home broadband data, and WiFi offload data will be used in the U.S. through 2018. The model uses a time-of-day variable, which shows exactly when data usage spikes or pain points are likely to occur and the magnitude of the spikes. This het-net forecast shows, on average, how much data is being used on which networks.
- U.S. DAS Market Forecast, 2012 - 2017: Installations, Tenancy, OpEx and CapEx
Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS), which are characterized by multiple antennas connected to processing units that are distributed throughout a network, are typically deployed to improve coverage in large buildings or venues. This market study defines DAS architecture, overviews use cases, provides profiles of dozens of DAS vendors, and gives a five year forecast for the number of DAS installed in the U.S., as well as the total addressable market.
- HetNet Bandwidth Demand Model
iGR's HetNet Bandwidth Demand Model shows the usage in each of the five components of a HetNet: Home WiFi, Mobile Broadband, User Driven WiFi Offload, Carrier Driven WiFi Offload, and WiFi Only devices. The Excel model uses four inputs: the population of the market to be modeled, the number of households, the type of market to be modeled (urban, metropolitan, rural or national), and if WiFi Offload should be included. The results of the model include the total bandwidth consumed in gigabytes per month, the number of users, and the usage by time of day for each component of the HetNet. Both a full version, as described here, and a simplified free version are available.
- Global LTE Metrocells Forecast, 2012-2017: Addressable Market and Deployments
This market study provides a forecast of the total addressable global market for 4G LTE metrocells (outdoor small cells) and a forecast for the expected actual global deployments of LTE metrocells. The forecasts are provided at both the global level and the six regions of the world.
More information on these market studies is available on iGR's website at www.iGR-inc.com, where the reports can also be purchased and downloaded. Alternatively, contact Iain Gillott at (512) 263-5682 or at [email protected] for additional details.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
