IHS: Private LTE networks to be used by >1 million users by 2021

IHS, a global analysis firm and Huawei partnered to develop a white paper entitled LTE in Public Safety, which was released at the 4th eLTE Industry Alliance Summit held on May 30 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The white paper provides an analysis of the role private LTE networks can play in the public safety sector including market scale, technology development trends, standards development, spectrum planning in major global regions, and the influence of industry organisations. It also provides recommendations on network deployment policies, industry chain development and market growth.

“Private LTE networks have been growing rapidly in recent years. The market scale of private LTE networks in the public safety sector reached more than $539 million in 2015,” said Thomas Lynch, co-author of the white paper and director of IHS Critical Communications Group. “IHS forecasts that the market scale of private LTE eNodeB in the sector will reach $1.3 billion by 2019. IHS’ long-term forecast data shows that the growth rate of private LTE networks will be even higher. Private LTE network systems are expected to be adopted by more than one million users by 2021.”
