CAMPBELL, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 2013 Small Cell Mobile Backhaul Equipment report, which tracks and forecasts outdoor small cell backhaul equipment revenue, units, connections and small cell sites by medium (copper, fiber, air).
“Outdoor small cells or, more accurately, low-power cells, are an exciting new expansion of mobile networking, but they come with challenging backhaul issues,” notes Michael Howard, principal analyst for carrier networks and co-founder of Infonetics Research. “As a result, deployments of outdoor small cells are modest right now, as mobile operators sort things out and test, trial and select technologies, products and vendors. But that’s about to change, and fast.”
Richard Webb, directing analyst for microwave and carrier WiFi at Infonetics and co-author of the report adds, “We look for outdoor small cells to really kick into high gear beginning in 2014, and predict a cumulative $6 billion will be spent globally on outdoor small cell backhaul equipment between 2013 and 2017.”
