Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its recent Mobile Backhaul Wireline Equipment Vendor Leadership: Global Service Provider Survey, which explores operators’ perceptions of mobile backhaul wireline equipment suppliers and includes carriers’ rankings of small cell backhaul equipment manufacturers.
“Alcatel-Lucent, Huawei, and Cisco have been the leaders in mobile backhaul router revenue market share for the past several years, and in our latest mobile backhaul survey, they’re also our operator respondents’ top picks for wireline mobile backhaul equipment supplier, besting the rest of the field in all 11 of the criteria that service providers use to select vendors,” notes Michael Howard, co-founder and principal analyst, carrier networks, at Infonetics Research.
“In the case of Alcatel-Lucent and Huawei, this is no doubt due to their status as ‘full service’ RAN and mobile backhaul suppliers,” adds Richard Webb, Infonetics’ directing analyst for mobile backhaul and small cells. (Hear Richard Webb speak on small cell backhaul at Mobile World Congress Feb. 26 -- http://www.mobileworldcongress.com/fastback/.)
MOBILE BACKHAUL SURVEY HIGHLIGHTS
- The most important criteria when choosing a wireline (non-microwave) backhaul supplier are related to squeezing the most value out of capex: total cost of ownership (TCO), pricing, and product reliability
- Infonetics estimates there were just over 6 million macrocell backhaul physical connections at 3 million cell sites around the world in 2013, with 45% using wireline backhaul technology, and 55% employing microwave
For the first time in an Infonetics study, operators named the top 3
small cell backhaul equipment manufacturers: Alcatel-Lucent,
Ericsson, and Huawei (listed in alphabetical order)
- The outdoor small cell backhaul equipment segment is forecast by Infonetics to be a $3.6 billion cumulative market from 2013 to 2017 (see “Outdoor small cell backhaul equipment expected to reach critical mass in 2015”)
MOBILE BACKHAUL REPORT SYNOPSIS
For its 21-page mobile backhaul wireline survey, published in January 2014, Infonetics interviewed purchase-decision makers at 20 incumbent, independent wireless, competitive, and cable operators in Europe, Middle East, Africa; Asia Pacific; and North America about their perceptions of and criteria for choosing macrocell mobile backhaul wireline equipment suppliers. The survey features operator ratings of mobile backhaul wireline vendors Actelis, Adtran, Adva, Alcatel-Lucent, Ciena, Cisco, Ericsson, Huawei, Juniper, MRV, NSN, Overture, RAD, Tellabs, and ZTE on 11 criteria. The report also includes operators’ rankings of the top small cell backhaul equipment manufacturers.
Survey respondents represent 46% of worldwide public telecom capex and 41% of revenue; 80% are mobile operators who serve 2 billion mobile subscribers. To buy the survey, contact Infonetics: http://www.infonetics.com/contact.asp.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
