Edge routing solutions refer to the specialized devices residing at the edge of the network. These devices ensure the connection of the internal network with external networks, internet, or external wide area networks. A network edge solution is a solution including the devices which provides entry, demarcation, and management access between a service provider and enterprise network. The functions of network edge solutions are often integrated or combined with Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) that includes Ethernet Access Devices (EADs), Integrated Services Routers (ISR), Multi-Service Access Routers (MSAR), and Integrated Access Devices (IADs).
Increase in internet bandwidth and mobile connectivity are estimated to play a pivotal role in the development of the LTE edge router solutions market. Increasing usage of wireless connected home appliances and wearable devices coupled with reduction in the cost of networking hardware is expected to propel the demand for connected devices in the coming years. According to the Cisco Visual Networking Index 2015–2020, by 2020, the number of connected devices along with Machine to Machine (M2M) modules are expected to reach 11.6 billion. Furthermore, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) projects the connected devices in OECD member countries to rise significantly from 1.8 billion in 2012 to 14 billion by 2022. Thus, the significant demand for connected devices is anticipated to boost the installation of LTE edge router solutions in the commercial sector, thus supporting the growth of the LTE edge router solutions market globally.
