  • Agenda •  Industry overview of the WiMAX and LTE infrastructure market trends – Chad Pralle •  Vendor profile highlights – Robert Syputa •  Industry rankings and trends forecast discussion •  Questions and answers BROADBAND WIRELESS INTELLIGENCE www.maravedis-bwa.com © 2010 Maravedis Inc.
  • History of 4G BROADBAND WIRELESS INTELLIGENCE www.maravedis-bwa.com © 2010 Maravedis Inc.
  • iPhone Influence BROADBAND WIRELESS INTELLIGENCE www.maravedis-bwa.com © 2010 Maravedis Inc.
  • Capacity Demands BROADBAND WIRELESS INTELLIGENCE www.maravedis-bwa.com © 2010 Maravedis Inc.
  • Capacity and Infrastructure © 2010 Maravedis Inc.
  • Base Stations BROADBAND WIRELESS INTELLIGENCE www.maravedis-bwa.com © 2010 Maravedis Inc.
  • Alternative-Format Base Stations •  Small form-factor base stations for non-traditional sites •  Micro-, pico-, and femto-cell •  Carrier-managed base stations and backhaul •  Flexibility is the key aspect of these products •  One carrier claims that a 100% pico network would have a better ROI than a traditional macro network. •  One vendor claims a 25% deployment cost vs. macro-cell base stations.

  • Self-Optimizing Networks (SONs) •  PROBLEM: Additional base stations in the network means more network elements to manage and maintain. !"#$ Source: Maravedis •  SOLUTION: SON reduces those costs by automating standard operations activities and maintains profitability BROADBAND WIRELESS INTELLIGENCE www.maravedis-bwa.com © 2010 Maravedis Inc.
  • Overview of Infrastructure Trends
  • Infrastructure Shifts to Managed Networks and Services Wireless Mobile Mobile Services Wireless Voice Data Device and Integration, Dominated by Cross-generation Managed Link Infrastructure Network Support Networks Source: Maravedis BROADBAND WIRELESS INTELLIGENCE www.maravedis-bwa.com © 2010 Maravedis Inc.
  • BROADBAND WIRELESS INTELLIGENCE www.maravedis-bwa.com © 2010 Maravedis Inc.
  • Selected Trends: Tier-1 Vendors •  Managed networks and collaborative service model •  Continued rapid growth of HSPA/HSPA+ & EVDO •  Multiple RAN LTE & 3G. WiMAX migration to LTE/TD-LTE •  700-800 MHz LTE spectrum •  2.3-2.6 GHz on fast track •  Modular base station and rapid development of SONs •  A broadened services focus: •  Extended network: cloud ICT, SaaS, •  Multimedia services •  M2M, smart grid, automotive BROADBAND WIRELESS INTELLIGENCE www.maravedis-bwa.com © 2010 Maravedis Inc.
  • Selected Trends: WiMAX Vendors •  Near term continued WiMAX growth •  Higher frequency bands more likely to continue with WiMAX •  WiMAX and/or LTE •  Pure-play WiMAX vendors may have difficulty to support additional R&D for LTE product lines •  Tier-1 vendors risk losing interest in relatively smaller WiMAX market (vs. LTE) •  Few commitments yet to WiMAX 2 upgrades •  Several fixed operators plan to offer mobile BROADBAND WIRELESS INTELLIGENCE www.maravedis-bwa.com © 2010 Maravedis Inc.
  • Vendors Search for Winning Strategy in Shifting Industry as Integrated Network Services Fuel Sales & Consolidation •  Ericsson makes inroads in North America •  Verizon, AT&T, MetroPCS, and Sprint 3G •  Alcatel-Lucent •  Unified communications and ‘applications enablement’ strategy •  Likely to loose LTE share relative to CDMA to Chinese, Nokia, and Ericsson •  Alvarion – seeks diversification as LTE Emerges •  WiMAX market share dwindled to 20% •  Recently announced LTE by 1st half of 2011 in reaction to LTE shift •  Aviat Networks (formerly Harris-Stratex) •  Repositioning as WiMAX-LTE integration supplier •  Traditional Back-haul sales under pressure BROADBAND WIRELESS INTELLIGENCE www.maravedis-bwa.com © 2010 Maravedis Inc.
  • Report & Service Methodology •  Broad data sources •  Direct periodic and event driven supplier interviews •  Direct interviews with operators •  Participation in conventions, webinars, briefings •  Professional and standards organizations •  Patent and R&D discovery •  Financial data and reports •  Process of ranking •  Scope of supplier’s offerings •  Trials and sales trends based on build up •  Cross-discipline peer review © 2010 Maravedis Inc.
  • Key Findings and Conclusions •  LTE will dominate mobile broadband industry •  First traditional market, then vertical markets •  WiMAX to experience growth in applicable niche markets •  WiMAX pure-play vendors to rebound •  Capacity demand will drive new deployment methodologies and management solutions •  Increased usage of small-format base stations •  Self-organizing/self-optimizing networks to automate operations •  Infrastructure business to shift •  Increasing commoditazation of the RAN •  More vendor partnerships around small form-factor base stations •  Tier-1 vendors to continue to focus more on services revenue •  Timing driven by LTE availability •  LTE phones available late 2010 •  Volumes in 2011 BROADBAND WIRELESS INTELLIGENCE www.maravedis-bwa.com © 2010 Maravedis Inc.
