CT&M: LTE and LTE-Advanced technologies driving wireless CT&M market
The growth in wireless test equipment market is influenced by developments in the wireless communications industry. Long Term Evolution (LTE) has become the fastest developing mobile technology driving the demand for CT&M products now and in future. The rapid evolution of LTE will demand for test and measurement of LTE network deployments. The successful deployment of LTE networks highly depends on conformance and protocol testing to ensure compatibility and effective internetworking of the system components. . The conformance testing ensures that these elements meet a minimum level of conformance as defined in 3GPP specifications. The LTE testing involves conformance test for base stations, user equipment and radio resource management performance. These are major focus of vendors today who are deploying LTE network and user equipment.
The rapid growth in mobile internet users and increase in video data traffic through mobile devices are expected to drive the demand for wireless test equipment solutions. Rapid deployment of smart devices, increased mobile data usage and LTE deployments are expected to continue driving the CT&M market. The Communication test and measurement solutions are finding traction in the wireless communication industry with increased demand for wireless testing products which supports GSM, GPRS, 2G, 3G,LTE, LTE-A, WiMAX, Bluetooth and other wireless technologies.
