Press Release   •   Feb 25, 2013 11:59 GMT

The Global Macrocell Mobile Backhaul Equipment market is to grow at a CAGR of 6.45 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increase in data traffic. The Global Macrocell Mobile Backhaul Equipment market has also been witnessing the growing adoption of IP/Ethernet technology. However, the reduced profits could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

One of the major trends witnessed in the Global Macrocell Mobile Backhaul Equipment market is the increased adoption of IP/Ethernet technology. Time-division Multiplexing (TDM) backhaul technology was highly popular and widely adopted in mobile 2G technologies such as Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM), Edge, and Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA). However, the market is witnessing strong demand for and adoption of 4G technologies such as LTE and WiMAX. IP backhaul is the preferred technology for 4G as it facilitates higher bandwidth at low cost. It is also highly flexible and it supports convenient convergence of mobile backhaul with network applications, thus leading to higher adoption.

The main factor which is driving the demand for macrocell mobile backhaul is increasing demand for increased network scalability and flexibility. The market is witnessing a significant increase in data services compared to voice services, and this trend is expected to continue in the coming years. The packet-switched network, which was commonly used until recently, was less suitable for the latest data services. It is crucial for networks to be able to support high-bandwidth data traffic, and this can be attained through the deployment of mobile backhaul. This is because mobile backhaul provides improved scalability to networks, thereby helping network operators efficiently manage the surge in data traffic.

The key vendors dominating this market space are Ericsson Inc., Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco Systems Inc., NEC Corp., and Nokia Siemens Networks. The other vendors mentioned in the report are Juniper Networks Inc., ZTE Corp., Adtran Inc., Actelis Networks Inc., Adva Optical Networking SE, Aviat Networks Inc., BridgeWave Communications Inc., Canoga Perkins Corp., Celtro Ltd., Ceragon Networks Ltd., Ciena Corp. Dragonwave Inc., ECI Telecom Ltd., Ipitek Inc., MRV communications Inc., RAD Data Communications Ltd., Telco Systems Inc., and Tellabs Inc.
