A recent forecast from In-Stat indicates that capital-loaded LTE macro base station deployments will approach 1.5 million by 2015, taking in revenues that will post 41 percent CAGR. Ericsson is leading the pack of LTE infrastructure players, and is seen to hold that position until 2014. Huawei and Alcatel-Lucent, are both contending 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," stated Chris Kissel, analyst at In-Stat. "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."

The research revealed that in 2015, four cellular infrastructure vendors will gain $2 billion or more in revenues from LTE RAN equipment sales. As APAC countries continue to deploy LTE, Ericsson, Huawei, Alcatel-Lucent and Nokia Siemens will all have at least 10 percent of LTE macro base station shipments. The forecast also states that the top five vendors in global LTE EPC/router/gateways in 2012 will be Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco, Ericsson, Huawei and Nokia Siemens.

Additionally, Alcatel-Lucent is forecast to dominate the LTE packet backhaul infrastructure space in Central and Latin America by 2012, with Cisco and Ericsson assuming the second and third positions, respectively.
