Small Cell Vendor Landscape Breakdown: Part One – The Top Four

| Jun 6, 2012 | Mobile Access Infrastructure
| Analyst: Ed Gubbins, Senior Analyst, Mobile Access Infrastructure

Mobile equipment vendors have been talking about small cells for years, but the topic reached critical mass this year, as every major equipment vendor put their small cell solutions front and center, new solutions were unveiled and new entrants joined the fray. Whereas the topic may have sparked philosophical debates only a year or two ago, vendors are now united in pushing the value of small cells – essentially low-capacity, low-power base stations deployed closer to users – in adding coverage and capacity in a world of finite spectrum resources. As vendors converge onto this field, it is a good time to take stock of the various positions each vendor holds and the differences emerging among them.

In this report – the first of two – we look at the all-in-one small-cell base station portfolios of the four most influential vendors in the space: Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Huawei and Nokia Siemens Networks, all of whom unveiled new small-cell solutions at the Mobile World Congress in Q1 2012. The rest of the field – which currently includes Airspan, Juni Global, NEC, Samsung and ZTE – will be presented in a follow-up report. In each report, we identify the key players, compare the attributes of their portfolios and identify strengths and weaknesses among them as well as examine the implications of these differences on how the small-cell market will evolve.
