Global Voice over Mobile Broadband (VoMBB) Market 2012-2016
Voice over Mobile Broadband, or VoMBB, has been recently gaining traction in the Global Telecom industry and is unanimously expected to generate huge revenue for telecom network operators in the coming years. Conceptually, VoMBB is about encompassing carrier-grade voice calls over LTE, Wi-Fi and HSPA/HSPA+ networks.
While Wi-Fi is a nifty feature of the network that offloads voice and data traffic of indoor users, its prominence will reduce with the increased adoption of VoHSPA and VoLTE. VoHSPA and VoLTE are expected to gain ground as they will enable high spectrum efficiency, reduce cost per subscriber, and provide richer voice and therefore, will dramatically alter the operations of telecom operators. Given the increasing demand for bandwidth capacity, refarming legacy network spectrum will be one of the trends that will be emerging in the market. However, delay in setting-up LTE ecosystems could hinder the growth of this market.
