Communications Test Equipment Market Outlook

Communications Test Equipment Market Outlook

The consumer adoption of smartphones drives the demand for communications test equipment. Consumer’s desire to surf the Web on mobile devices, make payments via smartphones, use mobile entertainment services, and the concept of bring your own device (BYOD) brings up the problem of limited speed and bandwidth that service providers (SPs) are struggling to solve.

According to Cisco, global mobile data traffic grew 􂀀% in 2013 from 2012. In addition, mobile video traffic exceeded the 􂀀% contribution made in 2012 to reach 􂀀% in 2013.

Further, smart devices accounted for 􂀀% of the total mobile devices in 2013 and accounted for􂀀% of the mobile data traffic. On an average, a smart device generated 􂀀 times more traffic than a non-smart device.

Long term evolution (LTE), LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), voice over LTE (VoLTE), Internet of Things (IoT), virtualization, and 5G will create opportunities for the entire ecosystem.

With mobile data growth boosted by IoT, 5G will improve data bandwidth, decrease latency in the network, and increase capacity.

Testing 5G at the R&D stage will be critical due to the complexity of cellular technologies.

LTE and LTE-A combined are set to dominate the market throughout the study period.
