DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwired - March 6, 2014) - Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5kjv9l/communications) has announced the addition of the "Communications Test and Measurement Market [Solutions (Wireless, Wireline), Type of Test (Enterprise, Field Network, Lab And Manufacturing, Network Assurance), Services; End Users] - Global Advancements, Worldwide Forecasts & Analysis to 2018" report to their offering.
The Communications Test and Measurement (CT&M) market can be defined as integrated test equipment (hardware and software) and services used by communication network operators and equipment manufacturers that operate broadband/IP networks (fixed and mobile) and deploy triple and quad-play services (voice, video, data and wireless). These solutions help network operators in deployment of new services, lower down the operating expenses and helps in delivering improved quality of service and increase productivity across each phase of network lifecycle, which include: research and development (R&D), Production, deployment and service assurance.
A CT&M solution also helps broadband service providers and operators to deliver high-quality experience to their users and ensure effective management of multiplay services: voice, video and data over the network. CT&M enables effective management of services, such as voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) and Internet protocol TV (IPTV), by providing visibility into end-user experience and facilitates repair, calibration, instrument management and rapid deployment and maintenance of networks and services.
These products are specifically used by communications service provider and equipment manufacturers, mobile device manufacturers, system integrators and enterprises, this includes major telecom operators and cable operators, such as, AT&T, Bell Canada, British Telecom, China Telecom, Deutsche Telecom, Telefonica, Telmex, Verizon and others.
Communications test and measurement comprises of Lab and Manufacturing test solutions which involves capacity expansion and 40G support; Field Network test solutions, which involves triple play deployments of cable, telecom, FTTx and home networking and Service Assurance Solutions which are used to test the quality of experience (QoE), Ethernet and IP services for cable, wireless and telecom networks. The wireless communication testing products are finding more traction in the coming years due to the imminent adoption of LTE and LTE-advanced technologies globally; there will be higher demand for wireless testing products. The more LTE network deployment will drive the market for wireless communication testing products.
The Y-o-Y growth rates of Wireless communication testing products will be on the higher side throughout the forecast period. Few high growth markets are:
- IP Broadband services: Ethernet test, SONET/SDH test, DSL test
- Wireless communications: Radio frequency (RF) test; drive test; Spectrum and Signal analysis
- Mobile phone industry: conformance testing; drive test; application testing; network testing; protocol testing; signal receiving
The key playing fields are Field network test, Lab and manufacturing test, enterprise test in communication test and measurement market. It has widespread applications in network design, deployment and maintenance.
It is expected that field network test products will account for the largest market share throughout the forecast period. However, Lab and manufacturing and service assurance test solutions and will witness significant growth in this period.
Majority of the challenges in this market are specific to the communication technology advances. Vendors are facing challenges in upgrading their test equipment to meet the standard. The evolution and adoption of LTE/4G and LTE-Advanced technologies are putting challenges for the testing vendors to upgrade their products to meet the required technology standard.
