Explosive growth in mobile data traffic driven by 4G and 5G is driving service providers to expand their mobile backhaul capacity with both Fiber/Copper and Wireless technologies. To take advantage of the opportunities in this market, component manufacturers, equipment vendors, service providers, and financial institutions need to answer critical business questions including:

  • How quickly will the Mobile Backhaul market grow and what events will influence its growth?
  • What is the demand for Fiber/Copper versus Wireless? Does this change with Small Cells?
  • What is the future demand for the various types of microwave transmission systems—TDM Microwave, Packet Microwave, and Hybrid Microwave?
  • Do E-band systems have a place in this market? Where?
  • Which vendors lead the equipment market?
  • What are the pricing trends of microwave equipment?

To answer these and other important questions, Dell’Oro Group delivers both quarterly reports and 5-year forecasts on the Microwave Transmission & Mobile Backhaul market.
