Alcatel-Lucent Ranks #1 in Small Cell Equipment Market Share while Broadcom Leads SoC Rankings, Says ABI Research
AUSTIN, Texas --(Business Wire)--
In the overall small cell equipment market, ABI Research estimates that
in 2013 Alcatel-Lucent ranked first in market share followed by Airvana,
Cisco, and ip.access. Among the semiconductor baseband SoC suppliers
Broadcom (News - Alert) finished in first followed by Intel, Texas Instruments, and
"The year 2013 saw two significant acquisitions in the small cell
ecosystem with Cisco acquiring leading equipment vendor Ubiquisys and
Intel (News - Alert) acquiring the wireless communications semiconductor business of
Mindspeed, signalling the entry of two well-funded and dominant players
into the small cells market," says Nick Marshall, research director.
"ABI Research's market share estimate by protocol has Alcatel-Lucent
leading in 3G and Contela (News - Alert) leading in 4G while among the semiconductor
vendors Broadcom leads in 3G and Cavium leads in 4G," continues Marshall.
