REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A recently published report by Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, reveals that the Mobile RAN market recorded its third straight quarter of year-over-year (Y/Y) growth, as LTE revenues continued to perform well, bolstering the market against declines in both 2G and 3G technologies.


"Year-over-year growth trends for the total RAN market continued to develop positively in the second quarter driven by double-digit growth in Latin America, North America, and Europe offsetting weaker momentum in the Asia Pacific region," said Stefan Pongratz, director of Mobile RAN research at Dell'Oro Group. "Although growth subsided somewhat versus the exceptionally strong 4Q12 and 1Q13 results, we continue to expect the total RAN market to generate growth in 2013, as a stronger second half in Asia should to some degree offset a more frontloaded North American RAN market," continued Pongratz.

The new Report shows that Ericsson maintained its leading market share in LTE RAN while Huawei's share in this segment continued to improve.  Together, the two vendors accounted for 63 percent of the combined WCDMA/LTE RAN market.
