Dell'Oro Group Lowers Sales but Raises Voice Channel Forecast for Mobility Infrastructure; Manufacturer and Service Provider Consolidations Change Market Outlook.
"Mergers of service providers have pressured equipment vendors to also consolidate, such as the recent merger announcements of Alcatel and Lucent and Nokia and Siemens, and both of these factors are impacting the Mobile Infrastructure Market in many ways," commented Greg Collins, Senior Director of Mobile Infrastructure research at Dell'Oro Group. "The larger carriers that have resulted from these mergers are putting increasing pressure on infrastructure equipment prices and are also demanding more applications, higher levels of service and consulting advice from the equipment vendors to help integrate fixed and mobile networks. By consolidating, infrastructure vendors will be better able to address these requirements by benefiting from economies of scale on equipment manufacturing, research and development, as well as having a large, global services and support organization to help the carriers with consulting advice," Collins added.
