Opportunities in Broadband Leasing to 2020

  1. 1. RnR Market Research Offers “Opportunities in Broadband Leasing” Report at US$ 4200(Single User License). The report got published in Mar 2013 & Contains 123 Pages.Thintri, Inc. announces the release of Opportunities in Broadband Leasing, a new market study thatsurveys growing opportunities in bandwidth leasing, particularly wireless broadband leasing. The reportdiscusses the imminent shortage of available wireless bandwidth, explores the sources of that shortage interms of the explosive growth in wireless data traffic, with an analysis of the individual marketscontributing to that growth in demand, including the latent demand in rural and other underservedmarkets. A discussion of the growth and development of today’s wireless networks with new technologiessuch as 4G and LTE includes the adaptation involved in today’s wireless networks, namely, the offloadingof data traffic off of cellular networks and onto WiFi and other types of networks.Established fixed wired broadband (optical fiber, DSL, cable) is analyzed, along with the leasingopportunities already established in dark fiber and wavelength services.Finally, wireless technologies, particularly millimeter waves and TV white space, are presented with athorough analysis of the markets available to them, in terms of both system sales and leasingopportunities, all enabled by the imminent wireless broadband crisis.The report separates hype from reality and assesses the dramatically changing landscape facingtelecommunications providers, and the opportunities for them and others who are prepared to addressthe dramatic opportunities now emerging. Forecasts are supplied for demand in data traffic and systemssales, under current conditions going out to 2020.- Background: The Bandwidth Crunch- Demand Drivers- Rural Broadband and Underserved Markets- Evolution and Options in Today’s Wireless Networks- Mobile Data Offloading- Fixed Wired Broadband- Dark Fiber & Wavelength Services- The Opportunities: TV White Space- The Opportunities: Millimeter Wave Systems- Wireless Bandwidth LeasingGet Report Details @ http://www.rnrmarketresearch.com/opportunities-in-broadband-leasing-market-report.htmlBackground on Opportunities in Broadband LeasingThe global telecommunications industry faces an imminent crisis in growth of mobile data traffic, and itsinability to meet growing demand with the industry’s present (and planned) infrastructure. Wirelesscarriers compete on the basis of coverage and performance. Both are at risk in the near future.The last few years have seen the beginning of a significant shift from fixed (mostly wired) to mobile(wireless) data transmission.Exponential growth of data traffic over cellular networks has led network operators to look at new,alternative approaches to managing congestion, because the pace of building out new networks is too
  2. 2. slow by itself to keep up with bandwidth demand. Already the incidence of dropped cellular calls hasincreased markedly.In 2010, mobile traffic was about 240,000 terabytes (TB) per month. By 2015, that is expected to grow to6.3 million TB per month. At that rate, all the mobile traffic of 2010 will be carried in the first two weeks of2015.In response, carriers are adjusting their business models, expanding coverage areas, deploying 4G andLTE networks, taking advantage of picocells and femtocells to enhance available bandwidth. Mostimportantly, they are beginning to offload data traffic onto other networks, primarily WiFi.It is this dire need for greater network capacity, combined with the need for carriers to find bandwidthquickly where available, that has presented some unique business opportunities, which are highlighted inthis report.While basic-feature handsets still make up 88% of the mobile telephone market, and home gateways andother wireless devices will continue their traditional growth, data traffic consumption is rapidly moving to anew generation of smartphones, tablets and laptops/netbooks. On top of that, a potentially enormousmachine-to-machine (M2M) market is emerging which will grow to consume vast amounts of bandwidth,much of it wireless, in the near future.Other market drivers are making themselves felt as well. Education and healthcare, for example, arerapidly moving toward greater use of mobile data.The benefits to schools and colleges connecting to the Internet by broadband wireless networks aremany. Remote learning, virtual classrooms that can be attended by students everywhere without regardto distance, is increasingly used to establish presence of academic institutions throughout the world.At the college/university level, the introduction of campus- or building-wide wireless networking optionswill also act to include research communications and academic data transfer on wireless networks.Today’s healthcare is a very data-intensive business. Increasingly, medical institutions need high-bandwidth connections to run demanding tasks such as e-mailing x-rays, MRI scans and other medicalimages, sharing databases, transferring medical records and other tasks.Demand for wireless medical services is anticipated to increase by 50% per year throughout the decade.Including mobile applications, the digital health market is estimated to have been $1.7 billion in 2010,growing to $5.7 billion by 2015. Consumers today have made use of more than 200 million health-relateddownloads on portable devices, with that number growing more than 100% per year.Inquire for Discount @ http://www.rnrmarketresearch.com/contacts/discount?rname=88247One of the greatest disruptive influences in today’s mobile networks is machine-to-machine (M2M)applications, namely, the communications between separate electronic devices without humanintervention. This “Internet of things” promises to remake a host of industries.Most of these connections will be from hardware that will be connected to the Web independent of humaninteraction. Some will be connected appliances such as household refrigerators and washing machines,as well as healthcare devices, and consumer electronics like televisions, game consoles and cameras.Another big problem the world over is bringing the benefits of the Internet age to those who, because ofgeography, limited resources and lack of proximity to digital infrastructure, have been left behind. Internetaccess is inherently more difficult to bring to sparse populations due to higher costs, given the greaternumber of network links that are required to reach the population.Wired solutions, preferable both in cost and performance, do not generally reach locations of low
  3. 3. population density, which has left much of the rural population underserved or unserved, although DSLand even some optical fiber networks are extending their reach outside urban and suburban areas.The unserved/underserved market in the US is 3 to 6% of the population, almost all in rural locations. Inmany nations, the percentage is much higher. The demand for broadband access in underserved areas,while a relatively small fraction of the whole, is nevertheless significant.The main focus in reaching rural customers is on wireless technology, which will in many cases serve toextend existing fiber or other fixed wired networks outside their normal ranges.That extension of fiber networks need not apply only to rural and underserved markets. As the reportshows, there is significant demand for broadband capacity beyond established fiber networks in heavilypopulated, even congested areas. Quite often, in an urban environment with a high density of fibernetworks, extending those fiber cables to nearby users is prohibitively expensive, creating a solid marketfor broadband wireless fiber extension access even in the largest cities.Understand the OpportunitiesThe way out of the current crisis largely lies on a path similar to that taken by fixed wired broadbandtechnologies, optical fiber in particular. An entire industry has sprung up around optical fiber networksoffering dark fiber and wavelength services. Users are able to lease or purchase optical fiber already inplace, or merely lease specific wavelengths on existing “lit” fibers or portions of a fiber cable’s capacity.Emerging technologies such as TV white space and millimeter waves will be key components in bringinga similar model to bear on wireless networks, where wireless links can be set up for the purposes ofoffloading wireless data traffic from 4G /LTE networks, or simply to lease capacity, or entire links, toanyone who needs it.A key feature of these new alternatives is that, while they will be employed by large carriers, they neednot be. Smaller firms, similar to those managing dark fiber and wavelength services, are also well situatedto offer wireless systems specifically designed to address the burgeoning demand for wireless bandwidth.Bandwidth leasing, in a time of crisis for today’s telecommunications industry, presents an unusualopportunity for industry players and other investors. Opportunities in Broadband Leasing presents ananalysis of those opportunities, relying on in-depth interviews with industry executives, marketdevelopment managers and other experts. The report provides a survey of the imminent bandwidthcrunch, its driving forces, the response of the telecommunications industry, a detailed discussion ofpotential alternatives such as TV white space and millimeter waves, markets available to thosealternatives, and demand for wireless broadband leasing over the decade.
