NEW YORK, October 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ —
According to data provided by Mordor Intelligence, the telecom power system market was valued at USD 2.35 Billion in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 4.21 Billion by 2023 while registering a CAGR of 10.21% during the forecast period of 2018-2023. The end users of telecom power systems include telecom service providers or the tower vendors, who own the cell site or manage the cell sites owned by telecom service providers. The research indicates the market is directly driven by an increasing number of cell sites, as it is a part of cell site infrastructure. Developments of access technologies, which improve the internet speed of telecom subscribers, helps increase the need for the deployment of more cell sites. Clear Blue Technologies International Inc.

Developing economies are going through major obstacles with the adoption of the latest access technologies, and power outages are an example. Power outages have “perturbed the service providers and cell site operators/owners, across various geographies. Sub-Saharan Africa has been subjected to this problem the most, and could, therefore, prove to be a major market for telecom power systems, as the region is witnessing growth, albeit at a relatively slow pace,” the research explains. “This is further exemplified by the fact that the 4G-LTE penetration in Sub-Saharan region was 3% in 2016, and is expected to reach more than 50% by 2022. Thus, the increased need for more cell sites in these remote regions is likely to drive the regional market.” The African region is one of many examples where new wireless infrastructure is in high demand.

Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC) expands the boundaries of technology to make the most amazing experiences possible. According to Intel’s blog post, internet traffic has undergone tremendous growth over the years and shows no signs of slowing down. For example, in Staying Connected in 2017: According to Intel’s Predictions, AT&T reports that the traffic on their network has grown 250,000% since 2007. People are adding new devices to their homes, and new data-hungry applications are being developed for work, connectivity, entertainment, gaming and more. In addition to the amount of data required, many applications are also latency-sensitive. This means networks have to handle large volumes of data faster than ever, and without added cost to the end user or subscriber. According to Introducing OpenCellular: An open source wireless access platform, at the end of 2015 approximately half the world’s population did not have internet access. The OpenCellular Project, founded by Facebook, is designed to support a range of communication options, from a network in a box to an access point supporting everything from 2G to LTE. This project empowers the developer community to contribute to the goal of getting to 100% connectivity in 5G. Intel develops leading network technology and building blocks such as silicon, software, connectivity, memory, and integrated solutions to address the demands of next-generation networks. These solutions provide both the flexibility and scalability needed to build, utilize, and optimize tomorrow’s network.
Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ) is a global leader delivering innovative communications and technology solutions that improve the way its customers live, work and play.
