SON & Mobile Network Optimization Market - $3 Billion Revenue by 2016 Forecasts

Companies mentioned in this article: ReportsnReports

DALLAS, March 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Self-Organizing Network (SON) technology minimizes the lifecycle cost of running a wireless carrier network by eliminating manual configuration of equipment at the time of deployment, right through to dynamically optimizing performance and troubleshooting during operation. This can significantly reduce the cost of the carrier's services, improving the OpEx to revenue ratio.

Amid growing demands for mobile broadband connectivity, wireless carriers are keen to capitalize on SON to minimize rollout delays and operational expenditures associated with their ongoing LTE and small cell deployments. Complet report available @ 709 Companies are listed in the report.

Originally targeted for the Radio Access Network (RAN) segment of wireless carrier networks, SON technology is now also utilized in the mobile core and mobile backhaul segments. Furthermore, the SON ecosystem is increasingly witnessing convergence with other technological innovations such as Big Data analytics and Deep Packet Inspection (DPI).

Despite challenges relating to implementation complexities and multi-vendor interoperability, SON revenue is expected to grow to more than $3 Billion by the end of 2016, exceeding conventional mobile network optimization revenue by over 20%.

The "Self-Organizing Networks (SON) Ecosystem: 2014 - 2020" report presents an in-depth assessment of the SON and associated mobile network optimization ecosystem including key market drivers, challenges, OpEx and CapEx savings potential, use cases, SON deployment case studies, future roadmap, value chain, vendor analysis and strategies. The report also presents revenue forecasts for both SON and conventional mobile network optimization, along with individual projections for 8 SON submarkets from 2014 through to 2020. Historical figures are also presented for 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.

The report comes with an associated Excel datasheet suite covering quantitative data from all numeric forecasts presented in the report.

Key Findings:

    --  Despite challenges relating to implementation complexities and
        multi-vendor interoperability, SON revenue is expected to grow to more
        than $3 Billion by the end of 2016, exceeding conventional mobile
        network optimization revenue by over 20%
    --  Driven by large scale TD-LTE rollouts and ongoing SON deployments, the
        Asia Pacific region will account for nearly 40% of the global mobile
        network optimization market by 2016
    --  The research estimates that SON can enable wireless carriers to save up
        to 35% of their electrical power consumption by dynamically by
        activating and deactivating RAN nodes in line with the changing traffic
        and user distribution profile
    --  The research estimates that a Tier 1 wireless carrier can save as much
        as 32% of its overall OpEx by employing SON across the RAN, mobile core
        and mobile backhaul segments of the network
    --  Wireless carriers have reported up to a 40% reduction in dropped calls
        and over 20% higher data rates with SON implementation
    --  Infrastructure and software incumbents are aggressively eyeing on
        acquisitions of smaller established C-SON players to accelerate their
        early entry path into the C-SON market
