The report stresses that the small cells backhaul solution may prove or brake the small cell business case. Specifics of small cells backhauls, their varieties and differences from macro cells backhauls are analyzed in details. The need for standardization is emphasized. The study of industry trends, interviews with vendors and the analysis of publically available statistical data helped to perform the marketing analysis. The survey of vendors (about 30 manufacturers of small cells backhaul equipment) reflects this industry specifics.

This report researches advanced technologies and markets for wireless and wired communications systems that utilize MIMO - Multiple Input/Multiple Output structures - to enhance their performance. Users' demand for more efficient networking brought to life many technological innovations. One of them is MIMO, which became very popular in wireless systems - almost all recent and future 3GPP standards use (or will be using) variations of such a technique. MIMO also can be used in wireline systems.

The updated analysis of P25 and TETRA radios phased development. The current status of technologies, markets and standards, and survey of vendors’ profiles are presented. This report provides updated analysis of narrow-band LMR/PMR technologies and markets, including NXDN and MOTOTRBO (as well as dPMR, DMR and other). The growing role of LTE in the PSC development is emphasized. Though, at the present time, LTE is not ready to support some major requirements of first responders’ critical communications, the standards organizations indicate that in 3-5 years major standardization work will be mainly accomplished. Meanwhile, the PSC market will integrate P25/TETRA and LTE environments where traditional networks will be primarily used for voice applications. LTE is selected as the main technology for the FirstNet – the nationwide U.S. PSC network; similar developments are observed all around the globe.
