Small Cell Chip (Femtocell and Picocell chips) Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth, and Forecast 2017 - 2025
Small cells, by definition are small in size and have low power requirements that make them ideally suited for congested areas with demand for better coverage and higher Internet bandwidth. It refers to a set of operator-controlled low-powered radio access nodes that include the ones operating in licensed spectrum and the ones operating in unlicensed carrier-grade Wi-Fi. They are typically in the range from 10 meters to several hundred meters. Small cell chips are the next big thing that mobile carriers are employing for handling skyrocketing mobile data traffic. This, in turn, helps improve mobile coverage and network capacity to provide an unparalleled mobile experience.
Types of small cells include picocells, femtocells, and microcells that broadly increase in size from the smallest femtocells to microcells that are largest. These small cells are based on femtocells technology
Small cell chip solutions integrate several semiconductors found inside a large macrocell base station. Small cells work like a Wi-Fi hotspot. They are the size of a wireless access point and use high-speed Internet connection to transmit 3G/4G/LTE and Wi-Fi signals. This leads connected devices to be taken off cellular towers to get better speed and coverage and thereby enabling carriers to increase their capacity.
Small cells help bring network closer to users and is instrumental in meeting the unprecedented increase in data demand. The residential femtocells are already favored among mobile operators. The number of 3G femtocells outnumbers microcells that are used today. Going forward, residential femtocells are expected to have a broader role for new deployment models such as open neighborhood small cells.
The semiconductor market for femtocells and picocells is rising at a considerable rate. In the field of mobile communication, femtocells are small “indoor base stations” that enable the device it is inserted in with top quality network coverage within a dedicated area. Although the concept was initially developed for WCDMA, but it is also appropriate for other standards such as GSM, WiMAX, LTE, and CDMA2000, TD-SCDMA. For network operators, femtocells provide users with both coverage and high capacity for the purpose of handling mobile devices. Consumers experience good voice quality as well as enhanced battery life for handsets by employing femtocells.
