DALLAS, September 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

The HetNet Bible (Small Cells, Carrier WiFi, DAS & C-RAN): 2014 - 2020 - Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies, & Forecasts is a new market research report, available with ReportsnReports, that indicates that spending on mobile fronthaul infrastructure for C-RAN and small cell networks is expected to reach nearly $3 Billion  by 2020. This report contains strategic profiles for over 300 companies in the wireless ecosystem. Complete report is available at .

The HetNet Bible (Small Cells, Carrier WiFi, DAS & C-RAN): 2014 - 2020 market research report estimates infrastructure spending on mobile fronthaul solutions will grow at a CAGR of nearly 40%, between 2014 and 2020. By the end of 2020, mobile fronthaul investments will account for $2.6 Billion in revenue. Given the high costs of direct fiber connectivity used for the very first C-RAN (Cloud Radio Access Network) deployments, fronthaul is widely seen as the biggest challenge towards the adoption of C-RAN.

However, an increasing number of deployment are now considering cost-effective alternative options for fronthaul such as WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing), OTN (Optical Transmission Network) and even microwave.  Besides easing the deployment of C-RAN, the emergence of cost effective fronthaul solutions has also opened other avenues, such as moving radio traffic from additional low power small cells within a macrocell, to improve coverage and increase the overall cell capacity.

706 companies mentioned in the HetNet market report include 3GPP, 3Roam, 4ipnet, 4RF, 6WIND, ABB, Ablaze, Ablaze Wireless, Accedian Networks, Accel Partners, Accelleran, Accuris Networks, AceAxis, Acer, Acme Packet, ACS (Applied Communication Sciences), Actelis Networks, Actiontec, Actix, Actus Networks, Adara Venture Partners, Adax, ADB, ADI (Analog Devices Inc.), ADLINK Technology, ADRF (Advanced RF Technologies), ADTRAN, ADVA Optical Networking, Advanced RF Technologies, Advantech Wireless, Aepona, Aerohive, Affarii Technologies, Affirmed Networks, Agilent Technologies, AICENT, Airbus Defence & Space, Aircom International, AirHop Communications, Airspan Networks, Babilon-T, BandwidthX, Batelco, Beeline, BelAir Networks, Belgacom, Bell Mobility, Best Western, Bewan Systems, Bharti Airtel, BICS (Belgacom International Carrier Services), Bird Technologies, Birdstep Technology ASA, BL Companies, Black & Veatch, Black Box Corporation, BlackBerry, BLiNQ Networks, Blu Wireless Technology, BluWan, Boingo Wireless, Boonton Electronics, Bouygues Telecom, BridgeWave Communications, Broadband Forum, Broadcom, BroadHop, BroadSoft, Brocade, Browan Communications, BSG Wireless, BSkyB, BSNL, BT, BTI Systems, BTI Wireless, BURCO, Byers Engineering Company, Cable & Wireless Communications, CableFree Solutions, CableLabs, Cablevision, Cadence Design Systems, Calix, Cambium Networks, Canoga Perkins, Carlson Wireless Technologies, Carolina West Wireless, Casa Systems, Cavium, CBNL (Cambridge Broadband Networks Ltd.), CCI (Communication Components Inc.), CCI (Competitive Companies, Inc.)/WyTec International, CCI (Crown Castle International), CCI Systems, CCS (Cambridge Communication Systems), CCSA (China Communications Standards Association) -  China, CDG (CDMA Development Group), CeedTec, Celcite, Cell C South Africa, Cellcom, Cellcom Israel, CellO, Cellular Asset Management, Dali Wireless, Dapu Telecom, DAS Advisers, DASAN Networks, Datang Group, Datang Mobile, Datang Telecom, Davis Wright Tremaine, LLP, Delta Partners, DeltaNode, DesignArt Networks, Deutsche Telekom, Devicescape Software, Direct Beam, Dish Network, D-Link Corporation, DoCoMo interTouch, Dongwon T&I, DragonWave, Draka - Prysmian Group, Druid Software, Du, E-Band Communications, E-Blink, EchoStar, ECI Teleom, Eden Rock Communications, Edgewater Wireless Systems, EDX Wireless, EE (Everything Everywhere), EION Wireless, Eircom, Elva-1 (Elva-Link), Enterprise Partners, ERCOM, Ericsson, Ericsson-LG, Errigal, Ethertronics, Etisalat, ETRI (Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute), ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute), Goodman Networks, Google, Gore (W.

The "HetNet Bible (Small Cells, Carrier WiFi, DAS & C-RAN): 2014 - 2020 - Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies, & Forecasts" report presents an in-depth assessment of the global small cells, carrier WiFi, DAS and C-RAN markets.  In addition to covering the technology, business case, the challenges, standardization initiatives, the industry's roadmap, value chain analysis, deployment case studies, vendor service/product strategies and strategic recommendations, the report also presents comprehensive forecasts for the market from 2014 till 2020, including individual revenue and shipment projections of small cells, carrier WiFi, small cell backhaul, SCaaS (Small Cells as a Service), DAS, C-RAN, SON (Self-Organizing Network) and mobile data services across six geographical regions. Also provided are historical figures for 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. The report comes with an associated Excel datasheet covering quantitative data from all numeric figures presented in the report.

The report will be of value to current and future potential investors into the wireless sector, as well as wireless carriers, wireless network infrastructure/device providers and enabling technology providers who wish to broaden their knowledge of the ecosystem. Key Findings of this report include:

• Small cells, carrier WiFi, DAS and C-RAN infrastructure investments will account for a $20 Billion HetNet ecosystem by 2020

• HetNet infrastructure is expected to carry more than 70% of all mobile network data traffic by 2020, which will account for $380 Billion in mobile data service revenue

• At present, the HetNet value chain is highly fragmented with pure-play specialists and incumbent macrocell vendors battling to gain a higher share of the market

• Research expects the value chain to consolidate over the coming years following a string of acquisitions by industry giants such as Intel, Ericsson, Cisco and Nokia

• Eyeing the momentum behind small cell and C-RAN deployments, several DAS vendors, such as BTI Wireless and Kathrein-Werke KG, have developed small cell and C-RAN offerings

• Small cell vendors such as Airvana are also adopting C-RAN centric architectures

• Enterprise RAN investments based on combination of small cells and coordination platforms are expected to reach $5 Billion by the end of 2020

• While it is a preferred opinion among wireless carriers, aggregating outdoor small cell backhaul with macrocell infrastructure may prove to be a well challenging task. Consequently the demand for small cell backhauling has opened a new opportunity for investment, which will be a market worth nearly $6 Billion by 2020

• Spending on mobile fronthaul solutions will grow at a CAGR of nearly 40% between 2014 and 2020. By the end of 2020, mobile fronthaul investments will account for nearly $2.6 Billion in revenue
