Analysis of the Global Self-Organizing Network (SON) Testing and Monitoring Equipment Market

Analysis of the Global Self-Organizing Network (SON) Testing and Monitoring Equipment Market 

Self-organizing network (SON) testing and monitoring equipment covered in this research consists of solutions that are used to validate the performance of SON by checking the conformance of its individual network elements. They consist of equipment used for testing network infrastructure, probe-based network monitoring systems, probe-agnostic network analysis and optimization solutions, and drive testing equipment.

While the SON industry generated $ billion during 2014, SON-specific testing equipment cumulatively generated $ million during the same year. This market is expected to reach $ million by 2019, expanding at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of % between 2014 and 2019.

From a geographic perspective, North America accounts for a share of % of the total market. While North America represents a significant share by region, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, accounting for % of the market by region, will experience the highest rate of proliferation of the technology, expanding at a CAGR of % between 2014 and 2019. Other regions such as Latin America, and Europe and the Middle East account for a share of % and % respectively by region.

About this report

As LTE deployments continue to increase globally, network utilization and interoperability issues will also go up with the evolving heterogeneous aspect of the overall network infrastructure. In the future, it will not be feasible for operators to use legacy-based solutions to monitor the performance of the many cell sites that constitute the network. Self-Organizing Networks (SONs) will increase the overall utilization of the network by enhancing the degree of automation across the network. The incorporation of the same will require testing solutions with a higher degree of sophistication.
