Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Mobile Backhaul Equipment Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global mobile backhaul equipment market: Cisco, Ericsson, Nokia, Huawei, and ZTE.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Actelis Networks, Adtran, ADVA Optical Networking, Alvarion, Aviat Networks, BridgeWave Communications, Cambridge Broadband Networks, Canoga Perkins, Celtro, Ceragon Networks, Ciena, DragonWave, ECI Telecom, FairPoint Communications, Fujitsu, Juniper, MRV Communications, Omnitron Systems, OneAccess Networks, RAD Data Communications, SkyFiber, Taqua, Telco Systems, Tellabs, and Transmode.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One of the key trends for market growth will be telecom firms inclining toward millimeter wave solutions. The millimeter wave technology involves the transmission of information through radio waves having a wavelength in the range between 1mm and 10 mm. It provides higher bandwidth and plays a major role in mobile backhaul and wireless communication. There is an increase in the use of millimeter wave for backhaul of small cells and macrocells. The millimeter wave equipment works on unlicensed E-band, licensed E-band, and W-band. Microwave equipment suppliers are thus adding millimeter wave gear to their portfolio.”
According to the report, pressure on mobile operators to reduce costs will be a key driver for market growth. The mobile backhaul equipment market is competitive, and mobile operators are concerned about reducing costs and providing better services to consumers. Many mobile operators are rolling out new services to generate revenue and increase consumer usage to improve their profitability and maintain competitiveness with other players. These offerings require a corresponding increase in the backhaul network. IP and Ethernet mobile backhaul solutions are used to lower the cost of the growing mobile data traffic. For instance, Cisco provides ASR 901 routers. These routers are specially designed so that operators can reduce their backhaul operating costs. They also simplify their RAN and Ethernet access networks and enhance profitability.
Further, the report states that rapid technological advancements will be a challenge for the market. Operators are unable to keep abreast of the upgrades in technologies such as WiMAX, 4G/LTE, and 5G. They are not able to support new and advanced multimedia applications such as delivering high-quality video content, which require higher bandwidth. Vendors need to address the issue of scalability and flexibility to support the current and next generation access technologies. They do not provide high reliability for next-generation backhaul technologies, end-to-end operations, administration and management, and quality of service.
