A remote radio unit (RRU) and remote radio head (RRH) is an RF electrical system for base stations in small outdoor modules. The remote radio unit performs RF functions which include transmitting and receiving data, amplification, and filtering of signals. It also contains various converters such as an analogue to digital converters, digital to analogue converters, and up-down converters. Moreover, a remote radio head (RRH) provides functions such as advanced monitoring and controlling which allows users to optimize the performance from remote and centralized locations. Remote Radio Unit (RRU) is mainly used for applications which include an integrated base station and distributed base station.

Moreover, a common public radio interface or CPRI is the protocol that is used for communication between the baseband unit or BBU and Remote Radio Unit or RRH. Furthermore, RRH is mounted near the antenna to reduce the transmission line losses.

Factors Driving Growth of Global Remote Radio Unit (RRU) Market:

Increasing penetration of smartphone devices and high-speed internet connectivity are some of the major factors expected to drive the growth of the global remote radio unit (RRU) market during the forecast period. An increasing number of devices are creating issues such as increased mobile data traffic and low internet coverage. To tackle these problems, internet service providers (ISP) need to install numerous high speed and capacity stations. These base stations have wide area coverage with a continuously changing supply-demand ratio. Moreover, mobile service providers are facing challenges in improving spectral usage efficiency of mobile networks. Remote radio unit (RRU) also helps in reducing operational and deployment costs.

However, remote radio units installed at higher altitudes such as on top of buildings are at a higher risk of getting damaged by lightning. This is expected to hamper the growth of the global remote radio unit market during the forecast period.
