Frenetic pace of 4G infrastructure expansion creates a
robust market for test equipment
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - June 21, 2012 - With the deployment
of long-term evolution (LTE), the mobile backhaul market is
moving from time domain multiplexing (TDM) to new
architectures such as Internet protocol (IP) and Ethernet.
Mobile operators will be keen to offer the same or superior
levels of quality of service (QoS) as provided with TDM,
creating considerable opportunities for the mobile backhaul
test equipment market.

Since operators are looking to refresh the existing
infrastructure of both the LTE networks and existing 3G
networks, they will need to clearly understand the overall
mobile network. They need improved infrastructure to
support traffic, original equipment manufacturer (OEM)
protocols, and detect failures quickly.
"As the industry transitions to more packed data,
service assurance and quality will become increasingly
crucial; thus testing will be vital to enhance customer
experience," said Frost & Sullivan Senior Research
Analyst Mariano Kimbara. "Leading companies educate
service providers about technologies with scenarios
testing, the need to upgrade their backhauls and address
Testing companies are also rolling out certification
programs to ensure consistency for telecom-network
standards. These certifications have homogenous network
devices that work together, enabling a more scalable
implementation of OEM technologies across the networks.
Mobile 4G operators are expanding rapidly with no intention
of slowing down in the near future. The greater processing
capability and performance, powerful operating systems and
the availability of intelligent mobile devices, such as
tablets and smartphones, have placed a huge stress on
mobile networks. The explosion of media-rich and
bandwidth-intensive applications is compelling network
operators to reevaluate the mobile network infrastructure
to improve user experience and reduce costs.
"To handle the heightened demand, the mobile backhaul
test equipment market is moving to defined classes of
service, as it allows the operators to restrict service
traffic with premiums on high-speed downloads and
multimedia," said Kimbara. "The market will also
get a boost from the rise in service costs."
