Infonetics: Evolved Packet Core Market More Than Doubles in 1Q14, Offsetting 2G/3G Skid

Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 1st quarter 2014 (1Q14) 2G, 3G, LTE Mobile Infrastructure and Subscribers report, which tracks 2G, 3G, and LTE network equipment, software, and subscribers.

ANALYST NOTE

“In the first quarter of 2014, LTE almost fully offset the abyssal decline of 2G and 3G and was characterized by an interesting dynamic: the tremendous growth of the evolved packet core (EPC) and E-UTRAN,” reports Stéphane Téral, principal analyst for mobile infrastructure and carrier economics at Infonetics Research. “E-UTRAN was driven by the ongoing second wave of fresh LTE rollouts, and EPC was fueled by first-wave LTE adopters’ core capacity upgrades.”

MOBILE INFRASTRUCTURE MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  • The global macrocell 2G/3G/4G mobile infrastructure market totaled $10.7 billion in 1Q14, down 2% sequentially, but up 11% from 1Q13, driven by strong LTE rollouts in China, Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America
  • In 1Q14, EPC grew 77% quarter-over-quarter and 129% year-over-year, while E-UTRAN rose 25% sequentially and 81% from a year ago
  • The top 5 vendors in the 2G/3G/4G mobile infrastructure space are, in alphabetical order, Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Huawei, Nokia, and ZTE
  • The Chinese vendors got a serious boost from their home market where China Mobile and China Telecom are undergoing massive LTE rollouts
  • Infonetics forecasts the global LTE equipment market to grow at a 1% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2013 to 2018, when it will total $14 billion
  • Global 2G/3G/4G software revenue is expected to grow at a 5-year (2013–2018) CAGR of 8.7%

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.
