Dell’Oro Group’s "Mobile Backhaul 5-Year Forecast" predicts mobile backhaul market revenues to exceed $8 billion by 2015. The new report tracks two key market segments: transport, which includes microwave transmission and optical transport equipment, and routers and switches, which includes cell site devices, carrier Ethernet switches, and service provider edge routers used for IP-based mobile backhaul.

The report indicates the overall market will grow more than 40 percent in the next five years, while revenues for the routers and switches segment will more than double over the same period.

"The huge growth in bandwidth requirements, coupled with the transition to 4G IP-based cellular radio technologies will drive the mobile backhaul market over the next five years," said Loren Shalinsky, senior analyst at Dell’Oro Group, in a statement. "The largest increase in mobile backhaul equipment revenues over the next 5 years will likely come from the Asia Pacific and EMEA regions, as these areas grow their cellular subscriber base as well as prepare for next generation cellular network technologies like HSPA+ and LTE."
