The Microwave, Optical, SP Routers, and Wireless Packet Core segments are forecasted to drive the majority of the growth in the forecast period.

“Since the introduction of the iPhone back in 2007 and subsequent proliferation of smartphones generating data as well as voice traffic, service providers have prioritized building out and improving both their wireless and wireline networks,” comments Tam Dell’Oro, president and founder of Dell’Oro Group. Dell'Oro added, “While we believe carriers will continue to enhance their wireless networks, we anticipate carriers will put more emphasis on backhauling traffic, which means improving their wireline networks in the next five years.”
