The PTP Microwave study assesses the market for point-to-point microwave radios operating above 1 GHz. It pays special attention to the cellular backhaul segment, which remains the largest application for PTP radios, and also to trends within the mobile market such as deployment and uptake of data, video, and audio services. Analysis and figures are provided regarding total 2G through 3G cellular base station deployments as well as for next generation IP-based network deployments such as 802.16, 802.20, UMTS TDD, and FLASH-OFDM and how this will affect the PTP radio segment.

The impact of competing DSL, optical, and point-to-multipoint technologies is also detailed. The overall effect these technologies will have upon the overall PTP radio market and its respective segments as well as those of evolving radio technologies and spectrum is also analyzed.
Trunking, public safety, enterprise, last mile and broadcast applications are also detailed with the quantity and value of PTP radio shipments from 2005-2011 for each of these segments provided. Regional analysis includes breakdown of radio shipments by region for each year from 2005 to 2011. The report also segments the market according to frequency of operation and according to PTP link capacity.
