Mobile Backhaul Market Outlook-2026

Backhaul is typically defined as transmitting voice and data traffic from the radio cell site to an edge switch at the ingress/egress point of the backbone core network. Generally, this access network can be divided into two segments: from the Node B (in 3G UMTS networks) or base transceiver station (in 2G GSM/TDMA networks) to an aggregation point; and from the aggregation point to the radio network controller (3G) or base station controller (2G). Mobile backhaul (MBH) is the process of connecting cell site air interfaces to wireline networks, which are subsequently connected to data centers that host the content and applications accessed by mobile users-both human and machine. Mobile networks are the most popular mediums for accessing remote content. With the expansion in data transfer, bandwidth consumption by smartphone-equipped mobile users continue to increase rapidly in the upcoming years due to high-bandwidth and video-centric content consumption. As people are inclined toward faster smartphones, the need for faster mobile networks have arisen and it has also resulted in new data traffic. At the same time, the way in which the user access the data have been shifted significantly. Higher bandwidth content is being consumed more often, for longer periods of time, which has resulted in a drastic rise of bandwidth consumption. Previously, Wi-Fi networks in several places such as in coffee shops, at home, and in other convenient places were most preferred places to access data-intensive applications. Even, the smartphone users often wait for a Wi-Fi connection before doing any serious work that consumes large amount of data. But, with improved LTE connections the sales have increased from mobile data networks. Therefore, this is the key factor for the growth of mobile backhaul market. Furthermore, increase in demand for smartphones and connected devices is expected to boost the mobile backhaul market growth.

Some of the major factors that drive the growth of the mobile backhaul market include proliferation of small cells, drastic rise in the mobile data traffic, and increase in use of point-to-point microwave transport technology. However, spectrum crunch and high cost of wired mobile backhaul restrain the mobile backhaul market growth. Each of these factors is anticipated to have a definite impact on the mobile backhaul market during the forecast period.

The mobile backhaul industry is segmented based on deployment, network topology, technology, services, and region. Based on deployment, the market is bifurcated into wired (fiber) and wireless. The wireless segment is further classified into microwave, millimeter wave, and free space optics (FSO). Based on network topology, it is categorized into ring, hub & spoke, and daisy chain. Based on technology, it is divided into TDM, ATM, and Ethernet. By services, it is classified into network, system integration, and professional. Based on region, the market is analyzed into Europe, Asia-Pacific, North America, and LAMEA.
The major companies profiled in the mobile backhaul market include Ericsson, NEC Corporation, Huawei, Dragon Wave Corporation, Bridge Wave Communications, Aviat Networks Corporation, Ceragon Networks Ltd, Nokia Networks, Fujitsu, Cisco System Inc., and others.
