  3. 3. 3Market Overview—Definitions (continued)NetworkInfrastructureBuild/MaintainNetworkInfrastructureBuild/MaintainNetworkOperationsNetworkOperationsCustomersupport andservicesCustomersupport andservicesCustomerpremisesequipmentCustomerpremisesequipment• Batteries play a vital role in all these three stages of telecom industry• Customer premises equipment typically defines the handset, for both the fixed and mobile telecomcommunication• Batteries with different specifications, are used in all the above three stages,• Batteries for backup in infrastructure sites, and network operations use higher capacity batteries withvoltage rating of 48V, while at other equipment in customer support and services, smaller batteries with24V, 12V ratings are used.• In telecom industry, batteries are largely used for backup power supply, and energy storage application isgaining momentum• Development of “battery-aware sensor network” would be the next technological evolution in the telecomindustry that would influence the battery market.• “Battery-aware sensor network” aims at optimal usage of small cylindrical batteries that power theelectronic circuitry in the telecom devices. This advancement enhances battery life and performance

  6. 6. 6Battery Chemistry Channel Revenue Forecast Discussion• Lead acid batteries are the widely used ones for standby applications in telecom equipment. Thischemistry is in existence for more than a century and has proved to be suitable for these applications.• Although flooded batteries were initially used, the challenge of regular maintenance led to a shifttowards VRLA lead acid batteries, that is largely used at present.• Nickel cadmium evolved to be the competitive chemistry to replace lead acid batteries. Nickelcadmium had better performance than lead acid batteries, however, the usage of cadmium hadenvironmental issues, that led to a decline in usage of these batteries.• Lithium-ion batteries emerged to be the next evolution in this market, with slow and steadypenetration in the market to replace lead acid batteries.Source: Frost & Sullivan analysis.1970 1980 1990 2000 2010 2020Lead AcidNickel CadmiumLithium-ionTotal Telecom Battery Market: Demand Analysis of Battery Chemistries, Europe, 1970-2020Strong Demand Medium Demand Low Demand
