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

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.

ANALYST NOTE

“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 Research.

“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 adds.

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 evolution
  • 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 deployment drivers
  • The move to higher iterations of HSPA+ such as Rel. 9, 10, and 11 is widespread
  • 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.

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.
