SpiderCloud Wireless Shares Insight to 2013 and the Changing Role of the Mobile Operator

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) San Jose, California -- SpiderCloud Wireless, Inc., a leading provider of scalable small cell Enterprise Radio Access Network (E-RAN) systems to mobile operators, today shares its insight on mobility industry developments to come in 2013: 2013 is the year when mobile operators will start to offer true managed mobility services to the enterprise - starting with basic coverage & capacity, followed by services to include Wi-Fi, BYOD, MDM and PBX Integration - offering clientless-UC, access to mobility, applications and cloud-based services.

LTE will start to take off, accounting for 20 percent of subscribers by the end of year (for most operators with LTE spectrum), the majority of usage (90 percent) being consumer video related.

In the US, Western Europe or Africa, we will see the entry of at least two new players in mobility and wireless infrastructure and fixed/mobile services for metropolitan services to enterprises, where Wi-Fi may be the first service followed by mobility.

Enterprise network access via smartphone and tablets apps (via application-specific interfaces), instead of VPN access to software platforms, will start to dominate, supported by continued cloud-sourcing of apps and non-essential IT services.

SpiderCloud notes that we are seeing the emergence of a common service network infrastructure where macro, micro and small cells work in close tandem with intelligent physical and virtual routing of access and services. "We are in the midst of a mobile industry in transformation - the most rapid mobile network change we have seen in over 15 years. Mobility and use of spectrum (licensed) is the digital oxygen that drives productivity - our industry's equivalent to crude oil deposits. Spectrum reuse and targeted capacity using small cells is rapidly becoming the answer to deal with networks at capacity," said Ronny Haraldsvik, SVP/CMO, SpiderCloud Wireless. "As 2013 approaches and we look as far as to 2020, mobile networks will become more capable and agile with the use of macro and small cell networks to better handle capacity requirements from consumers and enterprises." Goldman Sachs expects small cells to drive 18 percent of RAN investment by 2016 - and crucially, the 18 percent may be able to handle as much as 80 percent of all the traffic. Scalable small cell systems are in the early days of making a bigger impact in metropolitan public access markets, and evolving to include all access technologies in various form factors. The next battleground is for sustainable ARPU and the enterprise markets.

Analyst firms such as Infonetics, ABI Research, and Informa expect enterprise small cells to be the fastest growing segment of the small cell market. ABI predicts small cells for enterprise deployments will catch up with DAS by the 2016 timeframe - reaching the $2 billion mark by 2016. (August 24, 2012:
