Download Report

Report Summary:

Tellabs recently sponsored a Strategy Analytics report on the requirements for next generation Mobile Broadband and Sue Rudd, Director Service Provider Analysis at Strategy Analytics was the guest columnist in Tellabs Q1 2013 Insight Magazine. See: ‘Mobile industry faces $9.2 billion shortfall in backhaul investment'

The report predicts that as global mobile data traffic grows by another 5 to 6 times over the next five years operators will face a new mobile capacity crunch by 2017 unless they increase traditional backhaul investment levels to match the anticipated growth in RAN capacity and user traffic. The potential 16 petabyte shortfall in backhaul capacity represents a $9.2 billion global mobile backhaul funding gap.

The full report and model projections will be issued in two parts in early March. Please contact Sue Rudd for details.
