MarketResearchReports.com: Cloud RAN – A $6 Billion Opportunity, Reveals New Report – The HetNet Bible (Small Cells and Carrier WiFi)

Overall spending on HetNet infrastructure is expected to reach $46 Billion and investments on Cloud Radio Access Network (RAN) Infrastructure are expected to exceed $6 Billion by 2020, according to a new report from SNS Research. Cloud RAN technology concentrates the processing of the RAN segment of a mobile network in one or more, centralized data centers connected to remote radio heads. The architecture can result in significant cost savings for wireless carriers with a well-built fiber footprint.

Spanning over 451 pages and 262 figures, “The HetNet Bible (Small Cells and Carrier WiFi) – Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies and Forecasts: 2013 – 2020 – With an Evaluation of DAS & Cloud RAN” report from SNS Research presents an in-depth assessment of the global small cells (including backhaul) and carrier WiFi market, together with an evaluation of the Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) and Cloud Radio Access Network (RAN) technology.

In addition to covering the technology, business case, the challenges, standardization initiatives, the industry’s roadmap, value chain analysis, deployment case studies, vendor service/product strategies and strategic recommendations, the report also presents comprehensive forecasts for the market from 2013 till 2020, including individual revenue and shipment projections of small cells, carrier WiFi, small cell backhaul, SCaaS (Small Cells as a Service), DAS, Cloud RAN, Self-Organizing Network (SON) and mobile data services across six geographical regions.

Historical figures are also provided for 2010, 2011 and 2012. The report comes with an associated XLS datasheet covering quantitative data from all figures presented within the report.

New Report Launched – Software Testing Market India 2013

The new market research report, ‘Software Testing Market in India’, states that India has become one of the major destinations for outsourcing software testing services owing to the availability of cost effective talent pool.

Increasing number of software development companies are outsourcing their software testing work to India owing to a rise in demand for software testing services. This high demand is generated in order to prevent software bugs that result in huge losses for the company. United States is the key market for the big Indian testing vendors, followed by Europe and Middle East.

The outsourced software testing market comprises of both traditional and independent testing services (ITS). ITS gains more popularity as enterprises does not require to invest in expensive hardware & software. Leading software testing companies in India provides facilities and Center of Excellence to offer ITS. Currently about 180,000 people are employed in this field in India.

The growth of software testing market is supported by strong foothold of IT services sector in India. Growing maturity of Indian vendors allow consistent high quality service delivery and better user defined standards. Demand for testing services is gaining a speedy growth with rapid evolution of vendor capabilities in last two decade. Rising adoption of different growth strategies by testing vendors will help them to differentiate from other abundant service providers. Indian software testing market will witness further growth owing to the recent government initiatives in IT & ITeS sector.

However, the industry has also some pain points. Even though India is known for its IT expertise, it still lacks enough educational and training focus on software testing. An agile software development with poor testing may lead to poor coding thereby escalating risk of errors. Further rising competition from other low cost nations pose a threat to India’s dominance in the testing industry.

Currently the software testing industry senses the need for mobile application testing owing to rapid growth of mobile phone applications. Also, the industry is witnessing the trend to shift towards cloud based testing; testing-as-a-service; automated testing and testing in domain-specific niche services.
