It is 2012, and small cells, Wi-Fi offload, metro cells and picocells are all becoming parts of the modern heterogeneous network. But the macro base station remains the centerpiece and most important piece of equipment in the mobile network.
This report, "Macro Base Station Deployments by Technology and 30 Countries, 2010-2016", explains macro base station deployments and shipments. The report starts with the year 2010 and details new macro base station shipments by airlink (2G GSM, 2G CDMA, 3G WCDMA/HSPA, 3G TD-SCDMA, 3G CDMA, 4G WiMAX, and 4G LTE). Also included are ASPs by airlink, and the revenues derived from the sale of new macro base stations for 30 individual countries.
Key findings from this study that covers 30 individual countries include:
- MRG estimates that 1.017 million new macro base stations will be deployed globally in 2012. While lower than the 1.037 million macro base stations deployed in 2011, next year is a bounce-back year with 1.125 million base stations expected to be shipped. Worth noting: more than half of the new base stations installed in 2013 will be in China.
- The ASP of macro base stations fell 8% between 2010 and 2011. However after 2013, the ASP will see a leveling off, maybe even an increase. While the biggest drivers for cost decreases are the flatter architecture of LTE, improvements in silicon, and advancements in antenna technology, today's most commonly deployed three-sector macro base station will be augmented by four- and six-sector base stations in future installations.
- Led by AT&T and Verizon, MRG estimates 79,059 base stations will be activated in the US to serve LTE customers by the end of 2012.
