Telecoms' Hunger For Power Boosts The Batteries Market

LONDON, April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The increasing adoption of smartphones is boosting the demand for batteries as it has never happened before, putting both power and telecom sectors under pressure, but at same time unveiling interesting opportunities.

The changing technology landscape in Europe in the battery market for Telecoms will be discussed in Frost & Sullivan's web conference, taking place on Thursday, 2 May, 2013 at 2 pm BST. Energy & Power Systems industry manager Suba Arunkumar will lead the online conference that will focus on how telecommunication networks in Western, Central and Eastern Europe are adopting Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology, the infrastructure it requires and how this is influencing demand for batteries. Ms Arunkumar will also present the well established and mature battery technologies and which are the upcoming ones for telecom applications.

"Convergence has made a smart phone function as a voice communication device, a computer with internet data communication, a camera, a music player and also for storing data. A phone with all these features operating in 3rd Generation (3G) network or Long Term Evolution (4G) network transfers large data for voice calls, video conferencing, e-mail support and other communication through wi-fi network. This leads to higher bandwidth of data transmission in a base transceiver station (BTS)," explains Frost & Sullivan Industry Manager Arunkumar.

"A BTS with higher data transmission would need more transceivers requiring uninterrupted power throughout. This increases the energy required for the transceiver station. To support this energy requirement, back-up power is used, which has batteries in it. Thus, with higher energy requirement, demand for batteries increases," adds Ms Arunkumar.

Similarly, the base station controller and mobile switching centre needs to be upgraded to handle higher bandwidth of data transmission. This requires uninterrupted power which in turn requires battery back-up, thus driving demand for batteries.
