[In-Stat reports US will account for 25% of all new LTE base station deployments between 2011 and 2014.]

Scottsdale, AZ -- Global telecommunications is entering an era that can aptly be described as both fluid and exciting. Consumer electronics devices like phones and PC tablets have true convergence features which add to the pressure on mobile networks. To handle the increase in both volume and type of communications, mobile operators have been making infrastructure improvements in order to create environments where networks can be upgraded on an as needed basis. One such technology upgrade is LTE, where the United States will be responsible for 25% of all new LTE base station deployments between 2011-2014, says In-Stat ( “In practice, LTE is really defined as an airlink, an all-IP network, and a communications platform that eliminates the gateway service network (GSN) translation,” says Chris Kissel, Senior Analyst. “Just as LTE platforms are expected to support many different airlinks, so too will the end-use devices. Mobile phones will be expected to seamlessly transition from 3G networks to the LTE platform and vice-versa.”

Recent research found the following:

* In 2011, roughly 94,000 macro base stations that support WCDMA/HSPA/HSPA+ airlinks will be shipped in Western Europe. Germany will be the leading market.

* In Canada, new base stations shipments grew 30% in 2009 and another 22% year-over-year in 2010.

* In the Philippines, there are roughly 1,500 active base stations supporting 802.16e WiMAX.

* France will deploy nearly 7 thousand LTE base stations in 2014.

* Nigeria will deploy almost 5 thousand GSM GPRS & EDGE/EDGE+ base stations in 2011.

New In-Stat research, Macro Base Station Deployments by Technology and 23 Countries, 2010-2014 (#IN1105066GW) provides an in-depth look at the deployment of macro base stations and focuses on base station deployments in 23 key countries by technology.
