The increasing density of users with high capacity smart phones could cause a hundred-fold increase in data traffic, putting pressure on next generation mobile networks, says market analyst ABI Research.

This will increase demand for smaller base stations to raise the capacity of existing base stations, especially pico and microcells that are low cost, passively cooled and compact.

The rise of the "pizza-box base station" would benefit HSPA, LTE and WiMAX networks, ABI said. The compact base station market for 3G/4G networks would reach $13bn by 2015 with initial deployments being set up in the 2011-2012 timeframe, the firm said.
