Mobile Backhaul Applications Expected to Drive Service Provider Router Demand, According to Dell’Oro Group
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — According to a recent report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for information about the networking and telecommunications industries, the Service Provider Edge Router market is projected to grow 56% over the next five years as telecom operators upgrade networks to accommodate the rapid growth of Internet traffic. One particular market driver that is highlighted in the report is the increasing use of routers for mobile backhaul–the transportation of mobile traffic from cell sites to switching centers.
“Routers are the best technology for aggregating, transporting, and parsing large volumes of traffic, and we expect network operators to increasingly upgrade backhaul networks with routers to support super-fast mobile services based on LTE and HSPA+ technologies,” said Shin Umeda, Vice President of Routers research at Dell’Oro Group. “North America has been the hot market for mobile backhaul over the past 18 months, but we expect the trend to expand globally over the next five years,” added Umeda.
