With an enormous amount of capital in play, the battle for LTE base station deployment has attracted both small and heavy hitting suitors alike. New In-Stat (www.in-stat.com) research details the biggest winners in the LTE infrastructure build-out sweepstakes. In-Stat is forecasting that the total number of LTE macro base station deployments will reach 1.5 million in 2015, with Ericsson claiming a dominant #1 position while Huawei and Alcatel-Lucent battle it out for the second spot.
"Ericsson and Alcatel-Lucent have become the early LTE leaders as a result of modernization contracts with Verizon and AT&T. Nokia-Siemens Networks recently claimed a prestigious contract win with Telecom Italia," says Chris Kissel, Analyst. "Huawei has won both A1 Telekom and T-Mobile in Austria. Samsung has been instrumental in the MetroPCS LTE launch and will be a major factor in South Korea as their LTE market comes online."
