Report Highlights Y/Y Growth in the Mobile RAN Market

Dell’Oro Group, a market research firm for both the networking and telecommunications industries, has recently published a report showing that the mobile RAN market recorded its second straight quarter of year-over-year (Y/Y) growth, as an increase in LTE declines in both 2G and 3G technologies.

"We are seeing an increased focus on the RAN and maintain our outlook that the market will develop positively in 2013, even though we expect Wireless Capex to grow at a slower rate than it did in 2012," Stefan Pongratz, director of Mobile RAN Research at Dell'Oro Group, said in a statement. "If we look at the product mix, the launch of commercial public access small cells in the licensed spectrum continued to be pushed out this quarter, while macro BTSs generated Y/Y unit growth in 1Q13.

According to Yahoo Finance, the new report shows Ericsson remained the market share leader in Mobile Broadband, even with a four-quarter trailing revenue share of almost 40 percent in the combined WCDMA/LTE market. Huawei and Nokia Siemens Networks were also able to sustain their number two and number three ranks (respectively).

Further, Pongratz stated that the Dell’Oro Group “expects the macro BTS segment to reach new record levels in 2013 as service providers continue to prioritize LTE coverage and network modernization.”

The report comes two months after Dell’Oro Group forecasted a 49 percent growth in the overall wireless LAN market.
