In the ‘Cloud Radio Access Network (Cloud RAN) Market’ research report, the cloud RAN has been defined as a network structural design which helps in cost effective deployment of small cells, and satisfy the growing demand of high quality mobile services. It can also be defined as an innovative and efficient network architecture approach which is aimed at meeting the explosive growth in mobile data traffic.Cloud Radio Access Network Market is currently facing great rate of adoption and healthy competition.

Cloud radio access network find application in the telecom industry and helps the mobile operating vendors in reducing their cost structure associated with operations. cloud radio access network market comprises of various sub-markets including; remote radio heads, optical transport network, baseband units, processors, servers and test and measurement equipment. In 2013, the optical transport network market is estimated to hold the largest market and even by 2018, this market is expected to contribute maximum revenues.

The Year-on-Year growth of optical transport network market is estimated to be at the highest throughout the forecasted period, but since the cloud RAN market as a whole is expecting huge growth, some other sub-markets are also considered as good opportunity in terms of growth in revenues. These sub-markets include; baseband units market, remote radio heads market and test and measurement equipment market as well.

In the cloud radio access network market, key playing field is optical transport networking which comprises of fiber, Ethernet and microwave. Fiber is the most critical element in the Cloud RAN market and its availability highly impacts the market.

In the cloud radio access network market fiber availability is the most imperative challenge, due to its vital significance in the transportation networks. Along with fiber availability, enormous initial investment is another challenge, because of which many mobile network operators are reluctant in accepting these networks.

Increase in competition in the global telecommunication space has forced mobile operators to build a network solution, which is cost-effective and offers high performance. In the current scenario, mobile internet traffic is increasing tremendously; however, revenues from the telecom industry are not increasing at the same pace. Cloud RAN has emerged as a cost-effective solution with which mobile operators can maintain profitability and growth,which is driving cloud radio access network market.

Cloud Radio Access Network facilitates mobile communication, by helping mobile operators in delivering high quality mobile communication services, while maintaining sturdy cost-effectiveness. The Cloud RAN architecture helps in reducing CAPEX and OPEX and increases network efficiency and performance. In the present scenario, mobile data traffic is surging due to increasing broadband availability, emergence of smartphones and other devices such as laptops and tablets. This has forced mobile operators to find a cost-effective solution to cater to the increasing consumerization of IT. Cloud RAN is set to revolutionize the mobile communication industry, wherein mobile operators have already started migrating from traditional RANs to the Cloud RAN architecture.

Cloud Radio Access Network Market does not provides for the replacement of traditional RAN, but an alternative approach being deployed for better utilization of network infrastructure and base stations. The concept of Cloud RAN was initiated by China Mobile and soon after, many key players such as Intel, Huawei, Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN), ZTE, IBM and Orange joined together for the development of Cloud RAN architecture. In this research report, MarketsandMarkets has segmented the Cloud RAN market into components and services segments, across various geographical regions such as North America, Europe, APAC, MEA and Latin America.

MarketsandMarkets forecasts the global Cloud Radio Access Network market to grow from $1.71 billion in 2013 to $11.31 billion in 2018.
