Global Wireless Network Test Equipment Market, 2017–2023

Global Wireless Network Test Equipment Market, 2017–2023

Smartphone users spend nearly 80% of their daily device use time on non-voice activities. Traditional capacity expansion is not enough; mobile data traffic will continue to grow exponentially and will not be met by traditional network growth.

Service provider need to know where the network coverage is critical, as customer churn is extremely expensive and poor coverage as well as poor service are the top drivers of churn. Service Providers desire to obtain better, richer, and more detailed information about the quality of the coverage, and for now, there is an enormous demand for a drive test solution that communicates virtually with other tools.
Thus, the demand for wireless network testing solutions is on the rise.

Drive testing is vital for mobile operators and is conducted to discover coverage gaps in networks. Drive tests help mobile operators maintain and improve the quality of their network, for instance, by recognizing the need for tuning network parameters in order to achieve better coverage.
A conventional drive test is a manual process that is primarily done by engineers in the field by collecting radio measurements. Such tests tend to demand significant time and human labor and are costly. The concept of Minimization of Drive Test (MDT) emerged from an idea to use each device that is active in the network. This means that standard mobile phones should be used for measurements to provide data for the operators. The work on automated drive test was started in 3GPP with the purpose to create MDT in March 2009.

The Global Wireless Network Test Equipment Market study offers the detailed market analysis of the following segments: benchmarking consisting of drive test, walk test and crowdsourcing; monitoring: active test, passive test, OSS (CM/PM/FM); field trials, acceptance, optimization and troubleshooting: drive and walk test, OSS traces with Geo-location, Site Testing (antenna, cabling, PIM, OTA testers), OSS (CM/PM/FM), passive probes and SON.

The key questions that this study will answer are as follows:
• Which are the major participants in the global wireless network test equipment market?
• What are the sizes of the market segments? How are they likely to change during the forecast period?
• What are the major trends influencing market growth?
• What are the major challenges that vendors need to overcome to enhance growth?
• What are the market dynamics from a regional perspective?

This study provides revenue forecasts from 2016 until 2023, market share analysis and product analysis. The geographic forecast as well as end-user analysis are included in the scope of this study.
