Dell'Oro Group, a market analysis and research firm, has released its semi-annual Telecommunications Equipment Market Report for the first half of 2020. Throughout the report, the markets for broadband access, microwave and optical transmission, mobile core and radio access network (RAN), and service provider (SP) router and bearer Ethernet (CE) are considered.
The telecommunications equipment market grew by 4% overall in the first half of 2020, as businesses returned to growth in the second quarter after a 4% decline in the first quarter of 2020.
