REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – August 4, 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 worldwide Service Provider Edge Router market is expected to achieve $8.5 billion in revenue in 2019.

“Growth in routers used for mobile backhaul will outpace those used for other applications from now until 2019,” said Alam Tamboli, Senior Analyst at Dell’Oro Group. “We expect Service Providers in China to continue to invest heavily in their IP infrastructure to support LTE, while Service Providers in Europe gradually and more steadily increase investment,” Tamboli continued. “In some other geographies and countries, Service Providers will build out the aggregation and edge layers of the network to support consumers’ insatiable appetite for IP traffic. We expect that some of these countries will even see a significant upgrade cycle in their existing LTE-based mobile backhaul infrastructure before 2019. Coupled with growth in other product categories like small cell site routers, we expect a low-single-digit compound annual growth rate in the Service Provider Edge Router market through 2019,” Tamboli added.

The Service Provider Router market is comprised of the Service Provider Core and Edge Router markets. In addition to Service Provider Routers, the Enterprise Router market is analyzed in depth in the Dell’Oro Group Routers 5-Year Forecast Report.
