Mobile backhaul market revenues are expected to exceed $8 billion by 2015, according to a new report by Dell'Oro Group.
 
The report indicates that the overall market will grow by more than 40% in the next five years, while revenues for the routers and switches segment will more than double.
 
Senior analyst Loren Shalinsky said the largest increase in mobile backhaul equipment revenues will likely come from the Asia Pacific and EMEA regions,
as these areas grow their cellular subscriber base as well as prepare for next-generation cellular network technologies.
