EJL Wireless Research Reports Global BTS Transceiver Market Grew 44.7% in 2006

GSM Is Still Going Strong but Potential for Industry Consolidation of Weaker OEMs Such as Nortel Networks Remains

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - June 12, 2007) - The global base transmitting station (BTS) transceiver (TRx) market grew by 44.7% in units in 2006, according to the latest report from EJL Wireless Research titled "Global BTS Transceiver Market Analysis and Forecast, 3rd Edition, 2006-2011." "The transceiver market continued to show exceptionally strong growth in 2006 with GSM, WCDMA and CDMA all seeing strong demand," says founder and President, Earl Lum. The report provides a unique perspective on the global shipments and demand for TRx equipment covering all air interface standards and frequencies and major OEMs including Alcatel Lucent, Ericsson, Huawei Technologies, Motorola, Nokia Siemens Networks, Nortel Networks, and ZTE.

"With the OEM consolidations, the market has been divided into three tiers with Ericsson and Nokia Siemens Networks being in the top tier while the remaining OEMs are in the 10-15% market share level or below 5% level," says Lum. "The OEM to watch out for in 2007 is Huawei Technologies." GSM remains very strong and is not expected to slow down until 2010 due to continued demand from emerging markets along with China and India.
