The Infonetics’ report, called ‘Mobile Network Infrastructure Equipment and Subscribers’, showed that worldwide RAN equipment revenue was primarily driven by strong GSM deployments in India, China, and Africa, and by W-CDMA deployments in North America.

Meanwhile, the mobile soft-switching segment “jumped 33% in 2Q08 to $1.4 billion, led by huge quarterly sales increases for soft mobile switching centers and wireless media gateways, propelled by a spike in China Mobile deployments”, said the report.

Other highlights from the report noted that the number of worldwide mobile subscribers hit 3.3 billion in 2007 and will grow to 5.2 billion by 2011 and more than 50% of all new mobile subscribers will hail from Asia Pacific by 2009.
