      02. Introduction
      LTE is a mobile networking technology standard. LTE supports all internet protocol (IP) radio
      access network (RAN) architecture and IP technology by multiprotocol label switching (MPLS). It
      can also provide ethernet services for mobile backhaul with the similar quality of service (QoS)
      features as traditional SONET/SDH or ATM/TDM technologies. It ensures better network security
      and improved QoS. LTE technology reduces cost per Gigabyte carried by operators, providing
      increased efficiency while handling a mass market. Further, LTE is also scalable, hence allowing
      access to a wide range of the spectrum. Thus, carriers are progressively investing in LTE
      technology and this is driving the LTE Infrastructure market.

      The North America LTE Infrastructure market was US$0.8 billion in 2010, and is expected to grow
      to US$5.9 billion by 2014 at a CAGR of 63 percent. The LTE market in North America has been a
      major market and would continue to dominate the market for the next two years. Currently,
      Ericsson is the market leader in this segment followed closely by Alcatel-Lucent. Huawei, which is
      a global player, is a distant fourth as its presence in the market in North America is very limited.

      The LTE Infrastructure market in North America is poised to grow at a rapid pace and there are
      several drivers helping the cause. The main driver of this market is the fact that LTE supports high
      data transfer rates. It can support maximum data rates in forward and reverse data links than
      legacy or any 3G technology supported network. Reduced capital expenditure (CAPEX) and
      operational expenditure (OPEX) are also the major drivers of this market.

      Despite having several drivers in the LTE Infrastructure market in North America, there are few
      challenges affecting its growth. Concern on voice-over-LTE is one of the major challenges faced
