Kathrein is the No. 1 for Mobile Communication Antennas

Kathrein is the number one among providers of mobile communication antennas. This has been confirmed by a recent study of ABI Research, a renowned market research institute. According to the study, almost a quarter (24.8 per cent) of the LTE antennas sold worldwide come from Kathrein.

LTE is the abbreviation for Long Term Evolution and refers to the fourth-generation mobile communication standard (4G). It allows considerably higher data transmission and download rates. Using the technology, network operators can satisfy the significantly increasing capacity requirements of mobile communication users. ABI Research forecasts an almost fivefold rise in the monthly data volume per user by 2019.

The mobile communication market is currently in the midst of progressive concentration: According to the calculations of ABI Research, 76.2% of the market was shared by the four leading providers in 2014. In the previous year, this figure was 72.4%. Kathrein was not only able to underline its top position in relation to market share but also competitive strength. With 95.5 out of 100 points, ABI Research confirms the company’s particularly high power of innovation, strong global sales organisation, close relationships with leading network operators and especially broad range of solutions for different frequency spectrums and mobile communication standards.

Multi-band antennas becoming increasingly important

“We have held our own at the top of the market for sophisticated mobile communication antennas for many years,” says Joe Doering, CSO of the Kathrein Group. “First place in the recent ABI study underlines the high appreciation that customers have for our solutions.” Kathrein pursues a considerable amount of research and development work to enable mobile communication providers to invest securely in the establishment and expansion of their networks. Multi-band antennas are becoming increasingly important. According to ABI Research, they should have a market share of more than 85 per cent by 2019. Demand is also rising for active systems.

Reliable and future-proof systems from Kathrein

“Our customers appreciate the combination of outstanding quality, high reliability and personal support,” says Manfred Steinbacher, head of the Mobile Communication Antennas division. “Mobile communication networks of the future must be even more high-performance, flexible and efficient. Our solutions and systems are future-proof, offer low total cost of ownership and guarantee reliable data transmission.”
