Overall Telecom and Networking Equipment Market Sales Characterized by Cross
Trends-Growth in Wireless, Decline in Wireline
The Massive Mobile RAN Market Returns to Growth—Likely Will Pull Other Sales
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., July 10, 2013
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Newly published reports by
Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking
and telecommunications industries, reveal that overall market sales remained
at approximately $32 billion in the first quarter 2013. Equipment sales to
both Enterprise and Service Provider users were level, versus the year-ago
period, but each sector is characterized by significant cross trends.
Enterprise users increased spend on equipment optimized for deployment in the
data center and enterprise edge to enable network access by wireless devices.
Spend declined on wired enterprise access and telephony.
Service Provider users followed a similar pattern of increasing spend on
wireless equipment while cutting spend on wireline equipment. Wireless
network equipment sales grew 5 percent, while wireline equipment sales
declined 6 percent.
"This is the second consecutive quarter that we have seen the return to growth
for Wireless after four quarters of sequential decline," said Tam Dell'Oro,
President of Dell'Oro Group. "Within the Wireless sector, Wireless Packet
Core sales grew the most, but the largest contributor in dollars came from
Mobile RAN. Mobile RAN is a massive market comprising about one-third of the
$32 billion dollars spent worldwide on telecom and networking equipment. As
operators deploy RAN equipment they will need to connect to other equipment,
which bodes well for other technologies," added Dell'Oro.
