    "Already after reading only a few pages of your report 'Forecasting the new RAN' my feeling was quite positive. It is a well-balanced mixture of technical background with great competence, market figures providing comparisons which I have not found in other reports and strategic information about the vendors. 
    The topic is been explored from different angles and the reader gets the impression that all aspects have been considered. Without any doubt it is a worthy and helpful report which I most probably will purchase again when an update will be published."

    “The report “FORECASTING THE NEW RAN, How operators will monetize the data deluge” has come at the right moment, to add to our knowledge and awareness of the factors that contribute to the radical changes of the cellular networks. We always trusted Maravedis for the quality and punctuality of the information contained in its publications, and this new report met our expectations. It gave us, in a very well structured format, the overview and the details required for the better understanding of the business context for our product portfolio”
