Mobile data traffic continues to grow at an unabated pace. Equipment suppliers continue to push the technology envelope to ensure service providers can manage the data growth and improve speed/coverage/capacity/quality of their networks. At the same time, operator revenue growth has flattened out, spurring operators to seek new revenue opportunities. The constantly changing and increasingly demanding end-user expectations in combination with the search for growth present opportunities and challenges for incumbent RAN suppliers and new entrants.

To address on-going changes both from a supply and demand perspective, component manufacturer, equipment vendors, service providers, and financial institutions needs to answer critical business questions including:

  • Where are we in the 4G to 5G transition?
  • What type of 5G is dominating the investment mix?
  • Is there a business case for 5G beyond Mobile Broadband (MBB)?
  • Will adoption happen at a faster or slower pace than previous technology shifts?
  • What are the use cases that will characterize the market over the next five years?
  • How will the architecture change?
  • How will adoption vary by region?
  • How will 5G impact the mix between small cells and macro base station?
  • Will operators initially focus more on Millimeter Wave technologies or Sub 6 GHz deployments?
  • How will ongoing architectural shifts including C-RAN/D-RAN impact 5G RAN deployments?
  • Will virtualized RAN impact the market over the near-term?
  • What role will Massive MIMO play with 5G NR?
  • Will 5G impact the demand for WLAN?
  • How will 5G impact the overall infrastructure market?
  • How is 5G impacting RAN revenue shares?
  • Who are the leading RAN suppliers and how are new opportunities impacting the RAN shares of smaller players?

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.
