概要

LTE-Aの機能を用いたサービスは、現在では世界各国で提供が始まっています。ただし、LTEネットワークの世代により、利用できる機能には差が生じています。そのため、ベンダー各社は注意深く製品・ソリューションの開発を行い、既存顧客のニーズを満たしつつ、短〜長期的な戦略計画に沿って機能拡充・顧客拡大を図っていくべきでしょう。LTE-Aは2014年には世界の主要国で商業化が始まり、LTEネットワーク・オペレーターも順次LTE-Aに切り替えていくものと思われます。チップセット・メーカーなどがスマートフォンに搭載されるようになれば、LTE-A市場は更に大きく変化していく見通しです。

当レポートでは、世界各国でのLTE-Advanced(以下LTE-A)ネットワークへの投資の促進要因について分析すると共に、LTEインフラの主要ベンダーやが提供している製品・ソリューションの概略、主要ベンダーのプロファイル(製品・サービスのポートフォリオ、技術水準、市場での成功要因など)、主要企業のランキングといった情報を整理してお届けいたします。

Services with Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A) features (those in the 3GPP LTE specifications for Release 10 and above) are being rolled out around the world. Networks supporting those features use equipment from network equipment providers keen to ensure their LTE infrastructure continues to support their exiting wireless operator customers as they migrate to ever-faster, denser networks.

While LTE networks up to Release 8/9 are relatively homogenous across the world, those with LTE-A features vary significantly because operators are picking and choosing from a wide range of Release 10+ features depending on their specific requirements.

This means vendors must develop their products and solutions carefully, building in those features that will appeal to their important existing customers, and anticipating the needs of other operators, all of whom may have different short-, medium- and long-term LTE strategies. As always, Network equipment providers' roadmaps are driven by pragmatism as much as anything.

LTE-A networks will become commercial in many countries during the rest of 2014, and other LTE network operators will inevitably enhance their networks by switching on LTE-A features as they densify their network and seek to improve customers' experience.

Vendors have been responsive to the needs of their customers, and sought to enable those standards-based features that are most needed - many now have solutions that can be upgraded in software to support multiple LTE-A features.

The market for LTE-A network infrastructure is likely to change as higher-powered chipsets find their way into smartphones and other user equipment. When that happens, trials will become commercial services, and rollout will accelerate across networks. When this happens, vendors that have proven experience with industry-leading South Korean operators (Ericsson and Nokia Networks) will be well positioned, as will those with breadth of experience across operator networks (Huawei).

‘LTE-A Infrastructure: A Heavy Reading Competitive Analysis’ summarizes the drivers of LTE-A network investment, and assesses the products and solutions offered by the leading LTE infrastructure vendors. It focuses on the breadth of the vendors' portfolios, the number of Release 11 and 12 LTE-A features they have enabled and the additional related capabilities they have developed, their success at selling their solutions, and the buzz they have succeeded in building around their approach to LTE-A. It applies a ranking overall to eight leading vendors, and describes their LTE-A approaches and offers.

Sample research data from the report is shown in the excerpts below:

Summary of Vendor Analysis for LTE-A Solutions

Ranking the vendors assessed in this report involves making comparisons between companies that are not all playing the same roles in the market. The fact is, the market for complete wireless network infrastructure has consolidated to a handful of companies worldwide. Nonetheless, the breadth of assessment criteria mean that a ranking is possible. We gave equal weight to scores in each of the five criteria, since there would be little justification for applying any other weights in a general assessment. The scores for each vendor are compiled in the following excerpt.

Companies profiled in this report include: Airspan Networks Inc. (Nasdaq: AIRO); Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU); Ericsson AB (Nasdaq: ERIC); Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. (Shenzen: 002502); NEC Corp. (Nasdaq: NIPNF); Nokia Networks, a division of Nokia Corp. (NYSE: NOK); Radisys Corp. (Nasdaq: RSYS); and ZTE Corp. (Nasdaq: ZTCOF).
