PTP MICROWAVE 2012 - The Evolving World Market for Point-to-Point Microwave Radio

“PTP Microwave 2012: The Evolving World Market for Point-to-Point Microwave Radio” is an update of our annual study on the global point-to-point microwave radio market. It examines PTP radio operating frequency bands up to 95 GHz and mobile, trunking, enterprise, public safety, last mile and broadcast applications for PTP radios.

The study goes in-depth on the mobile backhaul market due to the great impact mobile wireless has on PTP sales and product attributes. Key metrics are provided for the mobile backhaul sector through 2016, including global subscribers and cumulative base station deployments both by technology and generation. Past, current and future expected backhaul capacity requirements are shown and assessed and deployments of mobile switching infrastructure are also provided. Qualitative analysis of the segment and its current and expected future trends are included along with close focus on the current state of mobile data services throughout the world.

Total revenues and units shipments are provided through 2016 as are revenues and shipments for mobile backhaul, trunking, enterprise, public safety, last mile and broadcast applications. Product attributes are also discussed and the market is quantified by operating frequency, traffic type (TDM/Ethernet, TDM, Ethernet only), radio capacity, use by region and vendor market share.
