Telecoms Market Reports has been published today new report. It provides updated in 2018 year analysis of Telecoms and Computing Industries.

This report will review the state of the small cell market, assess what technologies are available, and identify those solutions that are still emerging. The report will also highlight some of the challenges to incorporating small cells into the wider network; then, examine the latest approaches to ensuring the most efficient and effective deployment and operational support for small cell networks.

It will include small cell-related developments in:

– Planning of Assets, Backhaul and Coverage
– Integration of Macro- and Micro-networks
– Automation and Self-Organizing Networks (SON)
– Network and Service Assurance
– Cloud Radio Access Networks (C-RAN)

The small cell market has been slow to bloom; however, it was always a matter of when, not if. It is believed that the time has come for market acceleration, as cloud and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) begin to play a role. Software tools for planning, automation, and assurance that specifically target small-cell deployment will also move the market along. New features such as 3D location mapping, Wi-Fi integration, and predictive analytics are making the decision to deploy, and decisions about how to deploy, much easier for Communications Service Providers (CSPs) throughout the world.
