Research and Markets: Global Mobile Backhaul Equipment Market & Forecasts Report, 2016

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/4p3vbz/global_mobile) has announced the addition of the "Global Mobile Backhaul Equipment Market & Forecasts Report, 2016" report to their offering.

The Global Mobile Backhaul Equipment market has several growth drivers, one of which is the insatiable demand for data supported devices. In recent times, the demand for such devices, especially smartphones, is spurred from all corners, a trend that is likely to continue throughout the period 2012-2016. The demand for data-guzzling applications including mobile video conferencing, music downloading, and mobile internet games, low fixed-line broadband penetration, and ease of mobility, all have played a critical role in making smartphones a mainstream device. In order to maintain the loyalty of the end-user and to have a competitive edge, the telecom operators need to set up the backhaul architecture that can fully serve the surging demand for smartphones.

Millimeter wave technology involves the transmission of information or energy through the use of radio waves whose wavelengths are in the range of 1-10 mm. Millimeter wave equipment is mainly used in mobile backhaul, and it plays a major role in wireless communication. Millimeter wave equipment provides high bandwidth, which makes it highly beneficial for wireless broadband transmission and extension. Its signals are more focused than other types of wireless communication, making it a good option for service providers. Millimeter wave bands are useful in peer-to-peer connectivity, inter-satellite links, and point-to-multipoint communications. The new trend in the market to notice is the emergence of the inclination of microwave equipment vendors toward millimeter-wave solutions. The demand is powered by the increased use of millimeter wave for LTE macrocell backhaul and small cells, most of which use the unlicensed 60 GHz band. The millimeter-wave equipment works on unlicensed E-band, licensed E-band and W-band. The telecom operators find the solution promising for LTE macrocell and small cells backhauling; hence the microwave equipment suppliers are adding millimeter-wave gear to their portfolios. During the forecast period, the millimeter-wave gear will help in consolidating the microwave-based solutions in the backhauling market.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the divergence between mobile data demand and generated revenue. In today's Telecom market, mobile operators are looking for new ways to increase their revenue while also meeting increasing customer demands. With the ARPU for traditional voice services dramatically decreasing, network operators are seeking to optimize their existing mobile networks to deliver next-generation, content-rich services.
