REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – November 20, 2014 –According to a newly published report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, the point-to-point Microwave Transmission market held on to its positive upturn that began in early 2014, following nearly three years of market contraction.  In the third quarter of 2014, the market grew five percent year-over-year for a second consecutive quarter and is set to grow in the area of three percent for the full year 2014.

“The microwave transmission equipment market is returning to growth,” said Jimmy Yu, Vice President of Microwave Transmission research at Dell’Oro Group.  “Following two quarters of year-over-year growth this year, we’re expecting the momentum to continue as mobile operators continue to expand their mobile networks in geographic areas that favor wireless backhaul over fixed line technologies.  India and the Middle East are just a few of these key microwave backhaul regions where further network spending has benefited the microwave market,” Yu added.

In the third quarter of 2014, microwave transmission equipment revenue increased 33 percent and 20 percent respectively in Asia Pacific and the Middle East.  Other regions that rely on wireless backhaul such as Africa and Europe also increased microwave use during the quarter, offsetting declines in the Americas region.
