The fourth generation internet technology that are five times faster than 3G technology are the increasing demand in recent times. With its faster speed of accessing internet it has drawn attention of the manufacturers to introduce most of the smart phones that can support 4G internet networks. They implicate different technologies such as software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) to transfer data compared to 3G due to which 4G devices are experiencing demands in the recent times.
Technological advancements and developments in the networking equipment of 4G network technology which supports the LTE technology is driving the growth of the 4G devices in market. They provides feature such as voice over LTE and fastest internet.
For 4G device manufacturer, security and privacy are still remaining a concern. In order to facilitate secured data transmission, security measures must be integrated. This industry experiences a lack of awareness and infrastructure support in few countries. Along with this, one of the primary challenges for this market is the regulatory hurdles from county’s governments across the globe.
In terms of adoption for 4G devices market, North America is leading in it. This region has been an adopter of 4G network from earlier and also driving considerable growth in the mobile technology. The reason behind the strong growth of 4G device market in this region is countries such as the U.S. lead innovation in a number of areas in the mobile ecosystem, including hardware, access technologies, and operating systems.
The features in devices such as better battery backup, low network latency rate, and screen resolution are dragging consumers to move to 4G devices and fueling the demand for 4G devices worldwide.
Attractive data packages, Convenience and affordability offered by network operators in collaboration with device manufacturers are key factors encouraging consumers to go for 4G devices. As a result the penetration of 4G devices is increasing globally.
