Mobile backhaul test equipment market to grow at CAGR of 12% in 2011-2014

Telecom Lead India: The global mobile backhaul test
equipment market to grow at a CAGR of 12.1 percent over 2011-2014. Key vendors
dominating this market space include Ixia, Spirent, EXFO, and JDSU.

One of the key factors contributing to this market growth
is increasing mobile data traffic. The global mobile backhaul test equipment
market has been witnessing migration to ethernet backhaul. However,
interoperability of multiple standards could pose a challenge to the growth of
this market.


The increasing usage of mobile devices, new technology
such as WiMAX and LTE, and the trend of social networking have resulted in
substantial increase in mobile data usage. Service providers require more
bandwidth to manage the increased data traffic.

Operators are struggling to manage this exponential rise
in network traffic, and are migrating to backhaul connections to solve this
problem. This trend has created huge opportunities for the global mobile
backhaul test equipment market,” said an analyst from TechNavio’s Telecom team.

It is important for vendors to develop mobile backhaul
testing equipment that can address key issues such as QoS, clock
synchronization, network management, etc. As standardization of telecom
equipment is changing rapidly, it is challenging for vendors to offer testing
equipment that is compatible with multiple standards.

Vendors are investing in R&D activities for the
development of new testing equipment that can offer interoperability of
multiple standards. The report also discusses key challenges in this market
including interoperability of multiple standards.
