LTE Deployments Challenge Test Equipment Vendors to Up their Game to Address the Complexity of the Technology

The growth of the wireless communication market has a ripple effect on the wireless test equipment market, as increased mobility and Internet access through mobile phones are expected to raise the demand for wireless test equipment solutions. Long-term evolution (LTE), the next step in the evolution of mobile networks, delivers high data rates of up to 100Mbps. Such heavy data loads will challenge wireless operators to manage their networks effectively and ensure customer satisfaction, while still staying profitable. Higher mobile data usage creates more traffic on the network, leading to increased demand to test for quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE). Educating service providers (SPs) about the importance of testing and monitoring and its impact on QoE and customer churn is crucial to improve the uptake of test equipment. 'Enhanced data usage also triggers transmission pipeline-related technology changes, such as conversion from copper to optical technologies,' says the analyst of this research. 'Such transition creates new opportunities for testing one gigabit (Gb) per second, 10Gb, 40Gb, and 100Gb pipelines.'

However, the surfeit of new technologies has thrown up numerous interoperability issues for SPs. As the number of devices supplied by different vendors increases, protocol management will become more complicated. In the absence of a separate signaling or session framework, interoperability testing (IOT) has to be performed at every existing node when a new element or software load is placed in service. These activities are time- and resource-intensive, with costs increasing in proportion to the number of tests that have to be performed. To avoid these hurdles, SPs prefer to work with fewer vendors.

One of the possible solutions to service providers testing concerns is multiple input and multiple output (MIMO) antenna technology, which is a significant component of air interface test equipment. As the industry shifts from 2X2 MIMO to 4X4 MIMO or 8X8 MIMO, testing will become increasingly tough. Even though MIMO has several unique testing challenges due to its complexity, it presents numerous opportunities for wireless test equipment vendors. 'It will be a while before the market experiences optimal performance from MIMO implementation,' notes the analyst. 'Nevertheless, the demand for higher data and bandwidth will force the industry to find more spectrum, and that, in turn, will prompt the higher adoption of MIMO.'
