Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/lt6d26/longterm) has announced the addition of the "Long-term Evolution Infrastructure Market in the APAC Region 2011-2015" report to their offering.
One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing demand for revenue-increasing technologies from mobile operators. The Long-term Evolution Infrastructure market in the APAC region has also been witnessing an increase in time-division duplexing trials. However, the presence of Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) technology could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
Key vendors dominating this market space include Huawei Technology Co. Ltd., ZTE Corp., Ericsson Inc., Nokia Siemens Networks B.V. (NSN) and Alcatel-Lucent SA. The other vendors included in the report are NEC Corp. and Fujitsu.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Telecom team said: ''The APAC region is witnessing an increase in Long-term Evolution (LTE) trials. Currently, two types of LTE technologies are being tested: time-division duplexing (TD)-LTE and frequency-division duplexing (FDD)-LTE. However, it is expected that mobile operators in the APAC region will opt for TD-LTE technology because it costs less than FDD-LTE deployment. Mobile network providers such as China Mobile will begin TD-LTE trials in six cities across China, while Reliance Industries has shown interest in developing a commercial TD-LTE network in India. Other mobile operators in Japan, Malaysia and Australia are also considering TD-LTE technology to improve their networks.''
According to the report, one of the major drivers is increasing demand for revenue-increasing technologies from mobile operators. To support uninterrupted data transfer services, mobile network providers are rapidly adopting LTE networks and infrastructure. This will help them in improving the operational efficiency of network operators and increase their revenues.
