MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The wireless industry – particularly the 4G/ long-term evolution (LTE) segment – offers immense opportunities for communication test service providers globally. Testing as a service, which is a more cost-effective option than purchasing test equipment, has gained momentum in Europe after the economic downturn. The communication test services markets in North America and Asia-Pacific have also witnessed significant traction.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Global Communication Test Services Market, finds that the market earned revenues of $604.5 million in 2013 and estimates this to reach $993.6 million in 2020. The study covers application layer, broadband wireless, security and broadband wire line test services.

"The need to store huge amounts of data in the cloud is fueling demand for communication test services globally," said Frost & Sullivan Measurement & Instrumentation Industry Manager Sujan Sami. "To gain market share, vendors must keep abreast of market dynamics and be able to perform testing services for all next-generation technologies including software-defined networks, network functions virtualization, cloud and big data."
However, end-users lack knowledge on communication test services, which has long hindered market growth. While it is difficult for vendors to sell test equipment due to the lack of awareness, it is even more difficult to promote test services, as these require an understanding of the benefits of testing and an appreciation of its importance. To counter this, educating and training end users on the necessity to test communication devices should be a key focus for vendors.
"As end users expect quantifiable data to ascertain the impact new technologies will have on their business, the adoption of communication test services will pick up pace," noted Sami. "Customers recognize that streamlining the communication process is important and, thus, vendors offering holistic solutions that can test and validate data will attract many customers. Another way to increase market presence would be to build intelligence into communication systems and make them more user-friendly so that experts will no longer be required to run tests."
