Mobile and Wireless Backhaul Market – New Revenue Pockets
Mobile and wireless backhaul refers to a section of mobile and wireless networks, which facilitates the transportation of mobile data traffic. In the mobile and wireless backhaul market, microwave backhaul equipment is expected to hold the largest market share, throughout the forecasted period. But during this period the growth in this market will be slow. Sub-6 GHz equipment market holds a small portion of total mobile and wireless backhaul equipment market but is expected to grow with highest growth rate during the forecasted period. However, along with Sub-6 GHz equipment market there are some more revenue pockets as well in the global mobile and wireless backhaul market. These revenue pockets include the market for millimeter wave and test and measurement equipment. These sub-markets are also expected to foresee fine growth in the coming years. The Sub-6 GHz equipment market presents huge opportunity for both existing and new vendors, to enjoy the revenue gains.
Generally, fiber is considered as the best suited alternative for backhaul in the mobile networks, but because of its high cost and deployment time, operators are reluctant to use fiber for the purpose of backhauling. This presents opportunity for microwave based backhaul equipment to be considered as a cost-effective alternative over fiber. In the microwave equipment market North America is expected to hold the largest portion of revenues.
Sub-6 GHz backhaul equipment is specifically used for street level deployments, and presents better alternative for backhaul where it is impractical to use fiber or microwave. Major contribution in the Sub-6 GHz market is expected from the North America region.
In the mobile and wireless backhaul equipment market millimeter wave equipment represent a good viable alternative. This equipment can offer bandwidth similar to that of fiber, at a cost which is comparatively lower than others. This equipment category has come up as a solution to the challenges in small cell backhaul.
