For years, we've been hearing about LTE, femtocells, and picocells. Analysts repeatedly tell us that it is going to be a big thing. Well, here we go again! This week, Frost & Sullivan projected that the $0.28 billion world femtocell and picocell market will "skyrocket" to $7.72 billion by 2016. In fairness, this new analysis gets some of its legs from the fact that many LTE deployments are using femtocells. Frost & Sullivan says that it expects to see early fourth-generation LTE femtocell prototypes this year, with deployments beginning in mid to late 2012.
Here's a link to more about the report.
Here's some examples of past coverage/reports:
So, what are you hearing? What are you seeing? Are we finally going to be able to say, femtocells are a big market? (Instead of, "femtocells are going to be a big market?)
