A heterogeneous network (HetNet) is one which connects computers and other devices with different operating systems or protocols. For instance, the network (LAN) that connects Microsoft Windows and Linux based computers with Apple Macintosh computers is HetNet. Heterogeneous network is a cost effective way of handling the increasing demand for mobile data. Increase in the costs associated with mobile data handling created the need for cost effective methods for data handling. The traditional methods for resolving issues related to coverage and capacity require operators for installing a number of macro base stations contained in the cell site, thus making traditional methods expensive and unsustainable. Heterogeneous networks are considered to be the most cost effective solution for improving the coverage and capacity of mobile networks.
HetNet are proving helpful to mobile operators, enabling novel network deployment models and thus provide a high quality experience for customers. It is also useful in accommodating the growing requirement for spectral efficiency and hot-spot distribution. The adoption of small cells carrier and Wi-Fi in the telecom industry is growing phenomenally. Telecom sector attributes to the major driving force to the market growth of HetNets, with the increasing mobile data traffic, cost reduction through mobile data offload and an insufficient spectrum.
In 2017, the global HetNets market size was xx million US$ and it is expected to reach xx million US$ by the end of 2025, with a CAGR of xx% during 2018-2025.
