REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – July 23, 2015 –According to a newly published report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, the point-to-point Microwave Transmission market is forecast to have near term growth, but will likely decline in the outer years. During this five-year forecast period, through 2019, Packet Microwave equipment demand is expected to maintain a positive rate of expansion.

“The market is moving to Packet Microwave,” said Jimmy Yu, Vice President of Microwave Transmission research at Dell’Oro Group. “We are forecasting Packet Microwave radio transceiver shipments to be approximately two and a half times greater in 2019 than they were in the past year. Comparatively, other microwave radio shipments are expected to only be 33 percent higher. We think the main driver for Packet Microwave demand is form factor and capacity, especially as LTE mobile radio deployments move from macro to small cells. Small form factor, packet, high capacity, all-outdoor microwave units are just better suited for small cell backhaul than the older split-mount systems,” Mr. Yu added.

Select information from the recently published Microwave Transmission forecast report includes:

  • Packet Microwave revenue and radio transceivers forecast to comprise a little over 30 percent of total microwave equipment market by 2019.
  • Full outdoor unit shipments forecast to grow at 27 percent compounded annual growth rate (CAGR).
