Market research firm Infonetics
Research released excerpts from its latest Residential
and Enterprise Femtocell Equipment report, which tracks
femtocells by market segment, technology, and form factor.
“Overall, the femtocell and enterprise small cell equipment market has
seen robust unit and revenue growth over the previous half-year period,
and we remain optimistic that these small cell segments have sufficient
market drivers and support among operators to sustain continuous
year-over-year unit and revenue growth through 2018,” notes Richard
Webb, directing analyst for mobile backhaul and small cells at Infonetics
“4G macro network deployments are underway in many places, and operators
are starting to launch 4G-based femtocells to augment mobile broadband
services,” adds Webb.
“Boosted by enterprise small cell adoption kicking in to help mobile
operators support enterprise-specific voice and data offerings, we
believe 4G femtocell and enterprise small cell revenue will climb to
$2.3 billion in 2018, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 77 percent
from 2013 to 2018.”
FEMTOCELL MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
Worldwide femtocell and enterprise small cell equipment revenue
reached $144 million in 1Q14, up 6% from 4Q13
LTE femtocells, the highest ARPU
products in the market, are a driving force behind revenue growth,
though W-CDMA femtocells still make up the dominant proportion of unit
The residential segment led with 59% of femtocell revenue in 1Q14,
ahead of the enterprise small cell segment
These are distinct markets in their own right, and Infonetics
expects to see increasing specialization from vendors and
Integrated femtocells grew to 8% of total units in 1Q14 and are
anticipated to account for about a third of unit shipments by 2018,
predominantly into the residential segment
Femtocell/enterprise small cell equipment revenue market share leaders
in 1Q14 are, in alphabetical order, Airvana, Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco,

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

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 micro services. 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 contain...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
