ABI: Consumers outpaced by enterprise in the $4B femtocell market

Enterprise femtocells will capture 97 per cent of the $4.3 billion (€3.1 billion) market revenue in 2019, outpacing consumer-residential femtocells, according to the latest forecast from ABI Research. While femtocells are successful in the consumer market, both operators and vendors are eager for lucrative enterprise deployments. Other sources of revenue driving this transition are value-added services. Furthermore, the market share of different femtocell access technologies also changes with the rise of multimode femtocells. Although 3G femtocells will have the biggest share of femtocell shipments every year, especially in the North America and Asia-Pacific regions, 3G/4G multimode femtocells are taking off. Report
