Microwave transmission transceiver shipments grew 30% in Q2 2011


The number of point-to-point microwave radio transceiver
shipments grew 30 percent year-over-year in the second quarter of 2011, and is
projected to reach 1.6 million shipments for the full year, according to Dell’Oro


Point-to-point microwave is in high demand. Demand
for microwave has increased in all of the major regions, especially Europe
where sales have increased 58 percent year-over-year. The equipment
manufacturers that benefited the most from the surge in demand were Huawei,
Ericsson, and NEC.  All three vendors enjoyed shipment growth rates higher
than 40 percent year-over-year,” said Jimmy Yu, vice president of
Microwave Transmission research at Dell’Oro Group.


Dell’Oro Group recently reported
that the point-to-point microwave transmission market is forecast to
exceed $6 billion by 2015 as demand for mobile backhaul will drive radio
transceiver shipments to reach nearly 3 million units.


The largest market for microwave equipment is expected to
be the Europe, Middle East and Africa regions, where approximately half of market
revenues during the forecast period will come from.
