REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – August 08, 2017 – A brand new report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, finds the nascent Citizen Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) market opportunities are expected to grow the CBRS RAN market at a compounded annual growth rate of 108 percent between 2018 and 2021 with sales to enterprises and fixed wireless providers accounting for 60 percent of the market by 2021.

“One of the more compelling propositions relating to the CBRS band is that it lowers the barrier to entry and provides opportunities for a wide range of participants to operate a public or private LTE network — or eventually even a 5G network — at a fraction of the cost of operating a typical network, utilizing the licensed spectrum,” said Stefan Pongratz, Senior Director at Dell’Oro Group. “Taking into consideration both the enormous market opportunity with CBRS and the long list of caveats that could curtail the impact in the near-term, we expect activity to accelerate rapidly between 2018 and 2021 to support fixed wireless and enterprise applications,” explained Pongratz.

This new advanced research report addresses questions such as:

  • What target markets and use cases will drive CBRS?
  • What is the market potential for LTE and 5G CBRS over the next five years?
  • What is the impact this technology will have on the Wireless LAN market and Distributed Antenna Systems?
  • Which vendors are best positioned to succeed?
