Mobile RAN Revenues Increased 15 Percentage Points in 2011 According to Dell’Oro Group
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — A recently published report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, indicates that the mobile infrastructure RAN market recorded its strongest full-year revenue growth since 2004. The strong momentum that drove the mobile infrastructure RAN market in the first three quarters of 2011 slowed down significantly in 4Q11 paving the way for slower growth in 2012.
“While operators in North America maintained capex guidance for 2011 and front end loaded investments were expected, it was the shift in product mix from capacity to LTE coverage that resulted in weaker than anticipated wireless infrastructure investments,” commented Stefan Pongratz, Analyst of Mobile Infrastructure research at Dell’Oro Group. “The product mix will have a large impact on the equipment market in 2012. LTE RAN investments accounted for 40 percent of global mobile RAN growth in 2011 and there are no major signs yet of operators holding back LTE rollouts as a result of a challenging macro economic environment,” continued Pongratz.
The report forecasts the near-term outlook for mobile infrastructure spend and discusses the drivers of 2011, expectations for 2012 and changes in spend allocation across regions and technologies. The report also reveals that Ericsson and Huawei recorded the largest full year 2011 revenue increases and maintained their number 1 and 2 revenue share rankings in the mobile RAN market.
