-- Wide-spread adoption of high density 40/100 gigabit Ethernet testers drives overall market revenues
LONDON, Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With data centre activities and cloud-based services rapidly gaining importance in the communications industry, the global Ethernet test equipment market has been witnessing a constant evolution of complex next-generation solutions. As carrier Ethernet for cloud access continues to gain traction owing to its bandwidth scalability, security and ease of management, demand for Ethernet test equipment will grow worldwide. Adoption of 40/100 gigabit Ethernet testers, in particular, will contribute to market revenues.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.testandmeasurement.frost.com), High Growth Testing Opportunities—Global Ethernet Test Equipment Market, finds that the market earned revenues of $943 million in 2012 and estimates this to reach $1.41 billion in 2017.
"Gigabit Ethernet vendors are investing in R&D to address changing end-user technologies, meet specific requirements with high-performance test solutions, offer best value for money, and ensure highest quality of experience," said Frost & Sullivan Measurement and Instrumentation Research Analyst Prathima Bommakanti. "On the other hand, the evolving pattern of operating technologies and shifting customer needs is intensifying competition in the Ethernet test market."
While the optimum service delivery levels of major market participants pose a concern for small and medium-sized companies, the explosive growth in data centre activities makes it attractive for even big companies to create a niche through technologically advanced product introductions and frequent upgrades.
Market participants must offer innovative, multi-functional Ethernet test equipment and solutions with sophisticated capabilities that save on both time and cost. This is especially crucial as the new breed of technicians is trained in multiple technologies unlike the older lot, where each technician specialised in one technology.
"Test equipment vendors that deliver superior capabilities at competitive prices will find themselves best poised to boost market shares," noted Bommakanti. "Companies that have a keen eye to address customer concerns such complex device under test and high-price points will also build a robust advantage over competitors and enjoy market leadership."
