The growth, driven by mobile operators need for high capacity and efficient backhaul technologies for next generation mobile networks, will take the market to an estimated $500 million by 2017 according to the report.
"The relentless demand for backhaul capacity is making mobile operators consider every possible option for high capacity, efficient and sustainable backhaul solutions. PMP matches well against these demands and it offers a viable and cost effective alternative to traditional wireless backhaul technologies."
commented Elias Aravantinos, author of the report and ExelixisNet Leading Analyst.
"The fact PMP can also be deployed quickly to deliver good quality of experience positions the technology well for next generation networks. We expect growing LTE deployments and the small cell evolution to drive significant growth in the PMP backhaul equipment market over the years to come."

The predicted growth of PMP validates the technology as a highly suitable backhaul solution for next generation networks and we expect VectaStar to continue playing a leading role.
