Top 5 Vendors in the Mobile Backhaul Equipment Market from 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global mobile backhaul equipment market report. This research report also lists 25 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The global mobile backhaul equipment market will grow steadily during the forecast period, as telecom operators are upgrading their network to high-speed packet access (HSPA+) and long-term evolution (LTE). Mobile network operators serving the global mobile backhaul equipment market are shifting from fiber and copper networks to microwave because of shorter time to market.

Competitive vendor landscape

The market for mobile backhaul equipment is competitive in nature, consisting of a large number of small and large vendors. Ericsson, Huawei, Nokia, Cisco, and Juniper are the leading players in the market. Actelis Networks, Adtran, Adva Optical Networking, and Alvarion are some of the emerging vendors.

The emerging vendors compete with each other based on performance, innovation, product features, quality, cost, distribution, and financial stability. They offer innovative products and services since any advancement in a particular technology could make existing products obsolete,” says Abhishek Sharma, a lead M2M and connected devices analyst from Technavio.

Therefore, to remain competitive in the market, service providers not only develop new technologies but also keep themselves abreast of emerging technologies that can have an impact on their product lines.
