ABI Research: Small cell backhaul market on track for $4B in 2020

The small cell backhaul equipment market is expected to exceed $4 billion (€3.7 billion) in 2020, according to ABI Research. Millimetre wave technology, thanks to its large bandwidth, is the fastest growing technology in the company's forecast, outpacing the overall market with a very high growth through 2020. Sub-6 GHz technology will capture the largest share of small cell backhaul "last mile" links, also outperforming the total market by 2020. Traditional microwave equipment remains a top technology for small cell backhaul applications with a leading share of revenue and one-fourth share of links in 2020. Release
