Dell'Oro: Service Provider Edge Router Market Forecast

The demand for routers in mobile backhaul networks is expected to propel the worldwide Service Provider Router market to almost $9 billion by 2018, according to a new report from Dell'Oro Group.

“As LTE networks are being deployed in China and across Europe, router demand in mobile backhaul networks is taking off, with service providers expanding capacity to handle data traffic generated by LTE users,” said Alam Tamboli, Business Analyst at Dell’Oro Group.  “In North America, we witnessed a rapid deployment cycle, whereas in the case of Europe, we expect the cycle to be longer due to differences in the competitive landscape and a larger population size,” added Tamboli.
