REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – May 28, 2015 –In a recently published report from Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center information technology (IT) industries, point-to-point microwave transmission equipment revenues grew nine percent year-over-year in the first quarter of the year.

“The microwave transmission market grew at a very healthy rate,” said Jimmy Yu, Vice President of Microwave Transmission research at Dell’Oro Group. “In fact, we believe the year-over-year growth would have been much higher if it wasn’t for the strengthening US dollar.  Since we report on a US dollar basis, sales made in Euros convert to fewer US dollars.  We estimate this occurs in at least a quarter of the market.  As a proxy for the rise of actual demand, you can look at radio transceiver shipments, which we estimate grew at an astonishing 31 percent year-over-year,” Yu added.
