A report on Q3 mobile radio access network (RAN) sales attributes Nokia Siemens Networks with increased market share and revenue despite an overall declining market. Figures from market intelligence company ABI Research Wireless show Nokia Siemens Networks increased its RAN market share quarter-on-quarter by 4.2 percentage points to 22.4%.

In RAN terms, ABI reported that Nokia Siemens Networks was the only one of the top four vendors to grow its revenue quarter-on-quarter.

In the LTE (4G) RAN market, the company’s market share was reported to have quadrupled, year on year, echoing a recent report from Dell’Oro Group. Nokia Siemens Networks has over 70 commercial deals for LTE.

ABI also reports that Nokia Siemens Networks is placed second in what it categorizes as equipment vendor “Network Infrastructure Related” revenues (combining both RAN & Core elements) with 18.4% share, behind the market leader.
