Mobile data traffic has doubled every year since the smartphone market started accelerating in 2008. Equipment suppliers continue to push the technology envelope to ensure service providers can manage the exponential data growth and improve speed/coverage/capacity/quality of their networks. The constantly changing and increasingly demanding end user expectations provide opportunities for the equipment vendors to differentiate their solutions while new entrants and service provider consolidation continue to pressure equipment prices downward.

To take advantage of the opportunities in this new data driven market, component manufacturer, equipment vendors, service providers, and financial institutions needs to answer critical business questions including:

  • What vendors are best equipped to handle the migration to 5G?
  • What is the status of the public access small cell market?
  • How is the Mobile RAN market performing and what trends impact the expected growth rates?
  • What is IoT’s impact on the RAN?
  • When will indoor Enterprise small cells cross the chasm?

To answer these and other important questions, Dell’Oro Group delivers both quarterly reports and 5-year forecasts on the Mobile Radio Access Network market.
