EJL Wireless Research Reports Global Wireless Infrastructure Revenues for Top OEMs Grew 22.6% YoY in Q1 2008 to $12.8 Billion

ZTE Reports Largest Year-Over-Year Revenue Growth at 113.5%

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - May 13, 2008) - The global wireless BTS infrastructure market revenues for the top OEMs grew by 22.6% for the first quarter of 2008 to $12.6 billion compared with the first quarter of 2007, according to the latest report from EJL Wireless Research titled "Global Wireless OEM Financial Results Q1 2008." "The market experienced a seasonally down Q1 on a sequential basis of -15.4% but posted strong year-over-year growth in dollars due to exchange rate fluctuations," says founder and President, Earl Lum. The report provides a unique perspective on the global wireless infrastructure revenues for major wireless OEMs including Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Motorola, Nokia Siemens Networks, Nortel Networks, and ZTE.

"With five out of the six OEMs posting year-over-year revenue growth in Q1 in local currencies, we believe that overall revenue growth for the industry may be more in the mid-single digit range than flattish," says Lum. As Huawei Technologies is the only company not represented in this analysis, we believe that the results offer a realistic snapshot for the industry on how the overall market is progressing for 2008.
