Below are highlights from just three of the more than 50 reports available from Multimedia Research Group and GII, focusing on the telecom and information technology sector.

60GHz Consumer Technologies - WiGig & WirelessHD Go Head to Head

60GHz wireless technology has been around for a number of years, but up until recently has remained a niche area outside of the purview of the average consumer. Some 60GHz wireless protocols have been developed in recent years to introduce the consumer to gigabit level data transfers over a wireless signal.

Included in this report is an in depth analysis of the applications driving adoption of WirelessHD and WiGig. This report also looks at 14 different markets from smartphones to docking stations examining the number of devices shipping with WirelessHD and WiGig from 2012 to 2017. A forecast of the value of the WiGig market from 2012 to 2017 is also included.

Small Cells Provide New Opportunities in Last Mile Backhaul

As mobile devices become increasingly video and data centric, cellular operators are considering comparatively new offload strategies. Small cells are being increasingly implemented into cellular networks. In 2011, small cells only had about 3% of the capacity that macro base stations had. By 2017, with the prevalence of outdoor metropolitan picocells, small cells will have roughly 19% of the overally capacity of macro base stations.

This report addresses the changing nature of mobile networks. What is in the report is a comprehensive count of small cells (including femtocells) and last mile backhaul for both small cells.

The small cell form factors forecasted include femtocells, enterprise femtocells, indoor picocells, outdoor metropolitan picocells, and microcells. The information provided about each form factor includes new shipments, the retail value of each device, and the installed base - all values expressed by airlink.

Consumer Electronic Devices Get Connected to the Home Network

Following the example established by network-enabled video game consoles several years ago, the global consumer electronics (CE) market continues its steady shift toward networked devices – devices that have the ability to connect directly to home networks and/or the Internet.

Within the realm of connected devices, set-top boxes (STBs) (including digital cable, satellite, IP/DSL and digital terrestrial) led the way in 2011. However, by 2014 digital televisions (DTVs) will supplant STBs as the predominant connected device, representing a 37.0% share of the total connected device market in that year.

This report analyzes the consumer electronics devices that are being connected, as well as the networks that support the connectivity, by device type and by region. Presented are worldwide and regional forecasts for Blu-ray devices, video game consoles, DTVs, set-top boxes and streaming media players as well as the number of those devices that are and will be connected.
