In emerging markets, operators must accommodate rapid subscriber growth, by ensuring high-speed deployment of the network. Moreover, they need cost-effective solutions to ensure profitability in a market that generates low Average Revenue per User (ARPU). The introduction of 3G in these markets – at a time when 2G is still widely deployed – is yet another challenge.
In more mature markets, data traffic is surging with the advent of 3G USB keys and user-friendly smartphones. As a first step, mobile operators need to optimize network capacity for radio and backhaul, and maximize spectrum usage. Soon, they will have to introduce 4G to accommodate data traffic growth. This deployment will require the use of new frequency bands and therefore new RF components.
In all markets, mobile operators must constantly optimize network performance, while providing the best possible quality of service to subscribers.
Whatever their geography or markets, mobile operators will continue to rely on their RF component partners to meet their needs for years to come. Among the areas in which operators can intervene, the choice of RF components plays a critical role.
From higher gain antennas for deeper indoor service to lowest possible attenuation cables and conditioning products, premium performance RF components are by far the most cost-effective way for operators to optimize site quality indicators, compared to costly capacity and software features.
