Frost.com - Test and Measurement Research http://www.frost.com/c/10473/home.do - Test and Measurement Research Fri, 18 Jan 2019 18:08:40 Asia-Pacific Communication Test Equipment Market, Forecast to 2022 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=P9F7-01-00-00-00 This study talks about the trends in the communication test equipment market in Asia Pacific (APAC). APAC is a major growth area for test equipment vendors, with almost all major players seeing their highest growth and thereby strategizing to gain market share in this region compared to other regions. Growing population, government initiatives, and increasing investments are making APAC a lucrative region for communication test vendors. Developing countries are still driving the demand for certain product segments that are expected to see a demand decline in developed countries, while developed nations are driving the innovation and the need for next-generation technologies in the communication test space.--BEGIN PROMO--

Research Scope

Product Scope: LTE Test Equipment, VoLTE Test Equipment, Wi-Fi Test Equipment, Cloud Infrastructure Testing and Cloud-based Application Monitoring, Security Test Equipment, Ethernet Test Equipment, and LTE-Advanced Test Equipment Markets.

End-user Scope: Telecommunication Service Providers, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs, includes Network Equipment Manufacturers, Chipset manufacturers), Enterprises & Others (Mobile Virtual Network Operators, Wholesale Access Providers).

End-user applications are constantly evolving and getting complex in terms of technology. With the recent evolution of Big Data, cloud computing, and Internet of Things (IoT ), connected devices are expected to grow multifold during the forecast period, causing an increase in the demand for suitable test solutions. Companies are recognizing these advancements and are looking to broaden their offerings in terms of product portfolio. Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) are seen as the best way to address this concern. After a recent M&A that took place in 2017, the market is in for few more mergers as few other companies are also looking at this strategy to strengthen their market share.

Global Data Analytics Solutions for Service Providers Market, Forecast to 2023 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=K2E1-01-00-00-00 Data analytics solutions covered in this study are probe-based and specific to the requirements of service providers. These solutions help service providers monitor key performance indicators (KPI) from a myriad of raw data that travel across their proprietary network infrastructure to enhance their quality of service (QoS) and end-user experience. Key products considered include network planning and optimizing solutions and customer experience management (CEM) solutions. Through the years, probes have transitioned from an inherently hardware solution to one which is more software based. This transition is primarily fueled by the proliferation of network function virtualization (NFV) and software-defined network (SDN) technologies, which will gain an increasing share with the 5G rollout. Major trends expected to influence the market positively in the next 3-5 years include the surge in data traffic and the subsequent rise in network densification, the proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) and the rise in adoption of connected devices, the adoption of virtualization amongst network operators, and the expected launch of 5G services. While the market portrays resilient growth during the forecast period, there are still many challenges that need to be addressed. Key challenges include inadequate expertise and resource amongst the service provider community to properly implement data analytics solutions across their network infrastructure, as well as the lack of a data analytics solution which is truly end-to-end. To offer a more holistic solution for end users, data analytics solution providers have added the missing pieces in their product portfolio via acquisitions. Such acquisitions were not limited to the communication testing community, but were also observed amongst the service providers themselves. Mergers between prominent telecom operators and media content providers have also opened up a variety of use cases for communication testing vendors, which will require innovative data analytics solutions. From a regional perspective, North America and Europe are important markets, due to their progress in the areas of 5G and IoT. Latin America and the Middle East and Africa, however, have a lot of catching up to do with regard to data analytics solutions gaining traction. Vendors covered in the market include communication testing vendors that generate data insights via probes which are either proprietary or third-party owned. Important vendors covered include NETSCOUT, VIAVI Solutions, Anritsu, EXFO, and InfoVista. Other noteworthy participants include Empirix, MYCOM, NIKSUN, Sandvine, and ERCOM.
