LTE in Middle East and Africa: Market for Services, Devices, and Infrastructure 2013 - 2017
Africa and the Middle East are two of the fastest growing regions in the world for mobile communications and Internet adoption/usage. As of June 2012, Internet penetration in the ME represented approximately 40 % of potential penetration while mobile penetration reaches nearly 100%. In certain countries, mobile Internet is prevalent, such as Saudi Arabia wherein roughly 80% of users have mobile broadband.
The fourth generation (4G) of cellular via the LTE technology represents a huge step forward and opportunity for ME and Africa as it will open the door for many new applications, expanded usage of existing services, and many new user behaviors.
LTE in Middle East and Africa: Market for Services, Devices, and Infrastructure 2013 - 2017 includes:
- The future of LTE in ME and Africa
- LTE technologies and the drivers for 4G
- Analysis of Middle East and Africa markets and players
- Forecasts for services, devices and infrastructure 2013 - 2017

Public Safety Communications: In-door Wireless - Technologies and Markets
Among in-building communications applications, Public Safety Communications (PSC) posses a special role:
Many P25 and TETRA networks were planned and deployed, providing the necessary outdoor coverage and capacity; at the same time, seamless coverage to the indoor environment was considered as a secondary requirement. Now, the availability of robust indoor coverage has become a significant competitive advantage for network operators.
- PSC special needs require extended building coverage in the areas such tunnels, basements and other that may be in no interest to other groups of subscribers;
- In-building communications is also required to be integrated into the uniform class of channels to seamlessly extend first responder outdoor radio communications;
- Traditional in-building RF coverage extenders can be damaged even before first responders arrival; responders have to rely in a great degree on temporary network solutions (such as, for example, mesh structures).
Public Safety networks that cannot guarantee coverage in federal, state and local government agency facilities as well as primary private and public venues, have a severely limited value in supporting first responders operations.
Public Safety Communications: In-door Wireless - Technologies and Markets addresses in-door PSC communications technologies, related applications and markets; as well as industries. In particular, this report analyzes:
- Ultra wideband (UWB) communications, which can give first responders the power of communications, radar and location
- Wireless mesh networks ((WMN), which are self-healing and self-organizing structures
- Small Cells that allow reliable coverage of user groups inside (or outside) of a building
- Distributed Antenna System (DAS) that allows the use of multi-band and multi-standard technologies coexistence inside of a building.
