Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its Self-Organizing Networks (SON) and Optimization Software market size and forecasts report, which tracks 2G and 3G optimization software and 3G and 4G SON software for the mobile network optimization (MNO) market.
“Sales of 3G and 4G SON software are on track to more than triple worldwide this year, thanks mainly to AT&T and KDDI carrying out large-scale SON deployments, while the much larger, older 2G/3G optimization segment continues to grow in the single-digits, driven by operators seeking to control opex,” reports Stéphane Téral, principal analyst for mobile infrastructure and carrier economics at Infonetics Research.
Téral adds: “The combination of the ongoing 2G-to-3G subscriber migration and the preparation of 3G-to-4G subscriber migration—specifically LTE rollouts driving SON tools—will fuel growth in the mobile network optimization market going forward. In North America, 3G networks are still being completed, LTE networks are being launched, and 2G networks will be shut down by 2021. Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) are pushing the EDGE and HSPA+ roadmap hard while modernizing the footprint with multi-standard base stations. And Asia Pacific is the home of the LTE front runners in Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, and South Korea, and of large 2G footprints in China and India. All of this activity will drive 3G/4G SON and 2G/3G optimization deployments.”
SON AND OPTIMIZATION MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
- Combined, 3G/4G self-organizing network (SON) software and 2G/3G optimization software sales grew 11% last year and are on track to grow 16% this year
- Demand for self-organizing networks and optimization software continues because the need to remove people from the equation to reduce opex and human error has not abated
- Infonetics expects the SON and optimization software market to grow to $4.5 billion by 2016
- The 4G SON segment is forecast by Infonetics to grow at nearly an 87% CAGR from 2011 to 2016
Infonetics’ annual SON and optimization software report provides worldwide and regional market size, forecasts, analysis, and trends for the mobile network optimization market, including 2G and 3G optimization software and 3G and 4G SON software. The report includes a mobile subscriber forecast (2G/3G/4G subscribers), a specialist vendor snapshot, and SON use cases from the Next Generation Mobile Networks (NGMN) Alliance.
The report tracks Tier 1 mobile infrastructure vendors with mobile network optimization tools, including Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Huawei, Nokia Siemens Networks, and ZTE; as well as specialist vendors, including Actix, AIRCOM, Airhop, Aricent, Arieso, Ascom, Astellia, Axis, Bytemobile, Celtro, Commsquare, Eden Rock, Infovista, InterDigital, Intucell, Mentum, Newfield Wireless, P.I.Works, Plano Engineering, Reverb, Schema, Symena, Theta Networks, TTG International, Tulinx, Ubiquisys, Vector, and Xceed.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
