Key Findings

•According to a survey recently conducted by Frost & Sullivan, machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and LTE deployments were significant areas of interest, with end users expressing a degree of interest of about x %, against all other kinds of network deployment spectrums.
•In the years ahead, end users foresee significant opportunities in the areas of M2M communication and LTE network infrastructure technologies.
•Other significant technological trends which end users need to address would include the challenges around small cells, Big Data analytics, self optimizing networks (SONs), virtualization, cloud computing, and the inherent challenges around interoperability.
•About x % of the end users who participated in the survey anticipate that small cell deployment and interoperability are crucial technological challenges that need to be overcome.
•However, end users predict that by 2021, there would be a significant rise in the deployment of SONs, Big Data analytics, virtualization, software-defined networks (SDNs), and cloud computing.
•While brand recognition and aftersales services were important prerequisites, x % of all end users consider the general price of the testing equipment before anything else.

Research Methodology

•Frost & Sullivan conducted a web-based survey to ascertain which wireless technologies play a significant role in the business activity of end users globally.
•Industry representatives from various stakeholders in the value chain participated in the survey. They consisted of network operators, network equipment manufacturers, as well as contractors and other telecom and wireless consulting firms.
•Their designations ranged from C-level executives, directors, and vice presidents to general managers and engineers.
•The participants were asked to rate network technologies which they felt had a significant impact on their business. They were required to do this on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 signifying low impact and 10 signifying high impact on business development.
•These results were then extrapolated and converted into percentage breakdowns, for easier understanding.
•Participants were also asked to comment on important geographic regions that they foresee having significant potential for the marketing of such technologies.
•The findings represent the opinions of end users of wireless testing equipment.


•The exhibits above illustrate the percentage split between the type of end users who participated in the survey, as well as their job function within their organization.
•Half of the respondents consisted of network operators and network equipment manufacturers. The rest of the respondents consisted of contractors and installers, mobile device manufacturers, mobile virtual network operators, and service providers.
•The primary job function of the respondents within their organizations was related to product development, corporate management, and business development.

Market Definitions

The objective of this survey was to ascertain important network deployments as well as other technological trends that are of key interest among end users.
Wireless communications that served as a key focal point for business development among end users included the following network deployments:
•Second Generation (2G):
A telecommunication standard in which voice and data can be transferred simultaneously.
•2.5 G:
A more enhanced form of the 2G network, with enhanced download speeds.
•Third Generation (3G):
A more secure telecommunications network offering significantly higher download speeds, due to its enhanced network infrastructure. 3G can support a variety of applications, such as mobile Internet, video conferencing, and mobile television.
•Fourth Generation-Long-Term Evolution (4G LTE):
A form of wireless communication for rapid data transfers. This superseded the 3G technology deployment.
•Long-Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A):
A more intelligent wireless network, with faster download speeds and significantly lower latency. The network is more versatile than LTE and is easily adaptable to the environment surrounding it.
•Voice over Long-Term Evolution (VoLTE):
An all IP-based network technology which transfers voice and data as a single stream of packet information on the network.
•Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA):
An entirely different telecommunications infrastructure in which data from disparate sources are multiplexed onto a single transmission line.
•Wideband-Code Division Multiple Access (W-CDMA):
An air interface technology, used to transfer information between portable equipment at a much higher rate of speed.
•High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA):
A combination of uplink (HSUPA) and downlink (HSDPA) technologies. It is an enhanced version of W-CDMA.
