EDGE and HSPA/HSPA+ Holding Steady in Face of LTE Blitz – New Infonetics IP RAN Study
|By Business Wire

Market research firm Infonetics
Research released excerpts from its IP
RAN and 3GPP Strategies and Vendor Leadership: Global Service Provider
Survey, which analyzes how and why mobile operators plan to get
as much out of their existing 3GPP network assets as possible through
evolutionary steps, versus jumping straight to LTE.
“EDGE and HSPA/HSPA+ have a long tail and remain strong despite the
onslaught of LTE deployments. However, some of the HSPA+ traction we saw
among mobile operators last year is diminishing because of the current
move to LTE, which we qualify as the second wave of rollouts
characterized by hundreds of small footprints,” notes Stéphane
Téral, principal analyst for mobile infrastructure and carrier
economics at Infonetics
“Because those LTE rollouts are not overlay networks, most will still
require serious HSPA+ upgrades to maintain user experience when falling
off LTE coverage,” Téral
IP RAN AND 3GPP SURVEY HIGHLIGHTS
Operators participating in Infonetics’ study say there are no major
business or technical challenges impairing IP RAN and 3GPP network
Nearly three-fourths of respondents are running EDGE networks to
enable new services and enhance user experience; those who don’t have
EDGE don’t see the need for it
Support for Evolved EDGE continues to erode: A large majority of
survey respondents have no plans to deploy it
63% of those surveyed have a single IP RAN up and running, with cost
reduction and greater operational and energy efficiency as the top
The move to higher iterations of HSPA+ such as Rel. 9, 10, and 11 is
The top 3 RAN equipment suppliers as perceived by respondents are, in
rank order, Huawei, Ericsson, and Nokia
WEBINAR: DAS, SMALL CELLS, AND WIFI
Join analyst Stéphane Téral June 5 at noon EDT for How to
Get the Best Out of DAS, Small Cells, and WiFi, which analyzes
the future of distributed antenna systems (DAS) and their relationship
to small cells, remote radio heads (RRHs), and WiFi. Attend live or

ABOUT INFONETICS’ IP RAN STUDY
For its 30-page IP
RAN and 3GPP survey, Infonetics interviewed independent wireless,
incumbent, and competitive operators in EMEA,
North America, Asia Pacific, and Latin America that operate 3GPP
networks. The report reveals operators’ plans for EDGE, Evolved EDGE,
HSPA, HSPA+, voice over HSPA (VoHSPA), and IP RAN, including drivers,
barriers, business and technical challenges, and their perceptions and
ratings of RAN vendors. To buy

It is one thing to build single industrial IoT applications, but what will it take to build the Smart Cities and truly society-changing applications of the future? The technology won’t be the problem, it will be the number of parties that need to work together and be aligned in their motivation to succeed.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jason Mondanaro, Director, Product Management at Metanga, discussed how you can plan to cooperate, partner, and form lasting all-star teams to change the world...

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered.
In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy.
How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Arch...

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively.
In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of...

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.
In his session at DevOps Summit, Michael Demmer, VP of Engineering at Jut, will discuss how this can...

The last decade was about virtual machines, but the next one is about containers. Containers enable a service to run on any host at any time. Traditional tools are starting to show cracks because they were not designed for this level of application portability. Now is the time to look at new ways to deploy and manage applications at scale.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Brian “Redbeard” Harrington, a principal architect at CoreOS, will examine how CoreOS helps teams run in production. Attende...

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional?
In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of pro...
