World Market for Connectors Used in Mobile Network Infrastructure Equipment 2017-2022

The growth of mobile Internet users is undeniable. One million new mobile Internet users are added to the network every single day. While the wireless network still supports 2G and 3G, 4G will be the dominant access technology worldwide by 2018. By 2022, there will be nearly 500 million subscriptions of 5G globally.

In order to support this growth, the entire mobile infrastructure network must be upgraded. Small cell, DAS, massive MIMO, and C-RAN technologies will play a role in the access, and metro and core will become increasingly digitized and packetized.

The Changing Networks

The wireless infrastructure market is evolving. While mobile operators must maintain their 2G and 3G networks, they are also busy upgrading as much of them as they can to LTE and LTE-A now and 5G in the next few years. Thus we are now starting to see entirely new types of equipment.

The World Market for Connectors Used in Mobile Network Infrastructure Equipment report covers connectors used in telecommunications network equipment that supports mobile communications. The specific purpose of this report is to highlight likely new business opportunities for connector manufacturers. It will also discuss the various technologies being used in mobile infrastructure systems, the equipment involved and the connectivity products needed to support all of them.

What mobile network infrastructure equipment will dominate during this growth? What connector types will be needed to support this growth and which companies are aligning themselves for this exponential evolution? Bishop’s new report – World Market for Connectors Used in Mobile Network Infrastructure Equipment – 2017 to 2022 – discusses, examines, and analyzes in detail these questions, providing forecast numbers by equipment and product type.
