REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – July 20, 2018 – According to a newly published forecast report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, explosive demand for macro and small cell base stations will grow RAN market.  Base station shipments are expected to eclipse 20 million over the next five years.

“There are reasons to be optimistic about the mobile infrastructure market over the next five years,” said Stefan Pongratz, Senior Director with the Dell’Oro Group. “In addition to carriers coming to terms with the fact that the business case for 5G New Radio (NR) to support the mobile broadband use case is extremely compelling, LTE and 5G NR deployments to support new applications including IoT, Fixed Wireless Access, Public Safety, and Enterprise are expected to increase nearly fourfold over the five year forecast period,” continued Pongratz.
