The Microwave Transmission market revenue grew 9 percent in 1Q 2018 compared to the previous year period, according to a recently published report from Dell'Oro Group. NEC outperformed other manufacturers in the quarter and captured the highest shipment share. 

"The Microwave Transmission market dramatically improved in 1Q 2018," stated Jimmy Yu, Vice President with Dell'Oro Group. "Following two years of market contraction due to fewer LTE cell site deployments and upgrades, we had expected another year of decline until volume deployments of 5G NR occurred in late 2019. Yet, the Microwave Transmission market posted a strong first quarter and is expected to turn a positive full year," continued Yu.
