Wireless Infrastructure Sales Slowdown

Allied Business Intelligence predicts that 2002 wireless infrastructure sales will drop 15%. This could cause a wave of cosolidation since product lines are too broad and there are too many vendors. Seperately, the Dell’Oro Group thinks that 3G infrastructure spending will pick up slightly in 2003 due to the first significant sales of WCDMA equipment sales, around $5 billion. But over the next four years, carriers will be depending on their current 2.5G networks. The bottom line here is that infrastructure players are going to have a rough time over the next 5 years with small wins hear and there.
