This IDC study presents a worldwide small cells forecast through 2018.
"IDC predicts that the battleground for small cell vendors will be localized to geographical regions where LTE has been commercially available along with a healthy market adoption of LTE services. Today, for a mobile network operator its Net Promoter Score (NPS) is largely dependent on network coverage reliability and quality of experience. Small cells solutions with a promise of capacity and coverage value creation will play a vital role in helping a mobile network operator become the trusted service provider for its demanding consumer," says Sathya Atreyam, research manager of Wireless Network Infrastructure, IDC.
