New Report Says Public-Safety LTE Market Will Have $800M in Annual Investments
Monday, November 27, 2017 | Comments

SNS Research’s latest report indicates that annual investments in public-safety Long Term Evolution (LTE) infrastructure will surpass $800 million by the end of 2017.

A number of dedicated public-safety LTE networks are operational across the globe, ranging from nationwide systems in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region to citywide networks in Spain, China, Pakistan, Laos and Kenya. Early pilot LTE networks for the SafeNet program are in the process of being commercialized in South Korea, the report said.

The U.K. Home Office is in the process of deploying the Emergency Services Network (ESN), which will use British mobile operator EE’s commercial LTE radio access network (RAN) and a dedicated mobile core to eventually replace the country's existing nationwide TETRA system. The secure mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) model is already being used in multiple European countries to complement existing TETRA networks with broadband capabilities. In addition, this approach is gaining traction in other parts of the world, such as Mexico, SNS Research said.

About 47 percent of global public-safety LTE deployments are at 700 MHz, and 19 percent are in 800 MHz spectrum. Nearly 27 percent of the networks are in frequencies higher than 800 MHz, and about 6.5 percent are in the 400 MHz band.

The market, which includes base stations (eNodeBs), mobile core and transport network equipment, is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of nearly 45 percent during the next three years. By 2020, these infrastructure investments will be complemented by up to 3.8 million LTE device shipments, ranging from smartphones and ruggedized handheld terminals to vehicular routers and internet of things (IoT) modules.
