Mobile Fronthaul Market Forecast Revenue Growth Predicted by 2021-2027

Posted by Harsh on May 10th, 2022

Market Research Future (MRFR) study on the global mobile fronthaul market (2018-2023) discusses and analyses the effect of the outbreak of COVID-19 on the global mobile fronthaul market, including future opportunities and challenges, drivers, and risks. The report presents an assessment of the effects of COVID-19 on the global mobile fronthaul market, and a forecast of business growth based on different scenarios.

Mobile fronthaul involves the transfer of data and voice from a cell site remote radio head (RRH) to a centralized baseband unit (BBU), which then connects to the mobile telephone switching office (MTSO). With the mobile fronthaul, the RU equipment comes under the RRH heading but is still located at the macrocell site. Similarly, the BBU moves to a centralized location where it serves multiple RRHs. The optical links that connect the BBU to multiple RRHs are referred to as the Mobile Fronthaul. With a mobile fronthaul network in place, providers can use the Optical Transport Network (OTN) technology to transfer data from cell sites to BBUs.

Mobile fronthaul enables the maximum and efficient use of all network equipment. Mobile fronthaul technology collects statistics on each connection and link, like BER, as well as uplink and downlink delays. Mobile front-haul technology enables remote configuration of each node and into which OTN container each CPRI link should be mapped. Mobile front-haul allows load-based sizing of the fronthaul traffic. CPRI links from small cells or secondary carriers/sectors may be selectively enabled or disabled for front-haul transport.
