Mobile Fronthaul and Backhaul Market Size, Share and Global Trend By Type (Cloud RAN & Centralized RAN), By Application (Telecommunications, Networking, and Others), By solutions (Active WDM, Semi-Passive WDM, Passive WDM and Optical Broadcast Network) and Geography Forecast till 2023-2030

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI100385 | Status : Ongoing



According to Ericsson mobility report 2017, 54% of all mobile backhaul and fronthaul spending was for wireless equipment during 2016-17, as compared to fiber optic-based equipment which was 41%. Mobile Backhaul & Fronthaul market can be segmented into two types in which Fronthaul establishes the connection between the mobile tower radio and mobile network control backbone. Backhaul is used to generate a link between the cellular base station and the core wired network.

Further, mobile Backhaul & Fronthaul system builds an interface that can support several functions between antenna and packet core. This solution would help to deliver features such as flexibility, reliability, reconfiguration, etc., and to provide software defined transport architecture. Huge investment is done by key players in R&D sector, for the development of wireless backhaul & fronthaul solutions.
