The firm also predicts that the growth curve will accelerate after 2012, resulting in revenue that increases by five times between 2009 and 2014. The main driver: Mobile operators preparing to move to LTE. While they aren't moving to LTE immediately, they have to upgrade their backhaul capacity before doing so. Release
