Ericsson MINI-LINK family leads the microwave backhaul market
The Microwave Backhaul: Competitive Landscape Assessment report published recently by independent market research firm GlobalData, evaluates the microwave equipment capabilities and portfolio assets of telecom vendors considered as top players in this market.
Ericsson is named a leader in the microwave backhaul market through its highly competitive MINI-LINK product family that has lately been enhanced with multiple E-band products. Ericsson’s key strength lies in its broad microwave portfolio which, coupled with supplemental offerings, delivers true end-to-end solutions.
Next to a market overview and assessment, the report identifies the backhaul market drivers for various backhaul solutions. The report also provides vendor and buyer recommendations.
Highlights of the report include Ericsson’s MINI-LINK 6352 and MINI-LINK 6363-80 E-band products which are well placed to meet most of the operator’s needs; with each representing market-leading performance. The two new long-haul products in the Ericsson MINI-LINK family – the MINI-LINK LH SuperCompact and the split-mount MINI-LINK LH Split – are also regarded as valuable additions to the already competitive long-haul offering.
The criteria set for comparison between the four vendors in the report are Short-Haul Portfolio, E-Band Solutions, Long-Haul Portfolio, and Portfolio Breadth where Ericsson is seen as leading the pack.
