Communications Test and Measurement (CT&M) market can be defined as integrated test equipment (hardware and software) and services used by communication network operators and equipment manufacturers that operate broadband/IP networks (fixed and mobile) and deploy triple and quad-play services (voice, video, data and wireless). These solutions help network operators in deployment of new services, lower down the operating expenses and helps in delivering improved quality of service and increase productivity across each phase of network lifecycle, which include: research and development (R&D), Production, deployment and service assurance. A CT&M solution also helps broadband service providers and operators to deliver high-quality experience to their users and ensure effective management of multiplay services: voice, video and data over the network. CT&M enables
effective management of services, such as voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) and Internet protocol TV (IPTV), by providing visibility into end-user experience and facilitates repair, calibration, instrument management and rapid deployment and maintenance of networks and services.
These products are specifically used by communications service provider and equipment manufacturers, mobile device manufacturers, system integrators and enterprises, this includes major telecom operators and cable operators, such as, AT&T, Bell Canada, British Telecom, China Telecom, Deutsche Telecom, Telefonica, Telmex, Verizon and others.
Communications test and measurement comprises of Lab and Manufacturing test solutions which involves capacity expansion and 40G support; Field Network test solutions, which involves triple play deployments of cable, telecom, FTTx and home networking and Service Assurance Solutions which are used to test the quality of experience (QoE), Ethernet and IP services for cable, wireless and telecom networks. The wireless communication testing products are finding more traction in the coming years due to the imminent adoption of LTE and LTE-advanced technologies globally; there will be higher demand for wireless testing products. The more LTE network deployment will drive the market for wireless communication testing products.
