Brand Recognition and Product Portability to Boost Vendors' Market Presence

This market insight analyzes the various requirements of communication test equipment end users, globally, and provides strategies test vendors can use to achieve higher sales of their equipment. The segments included in this analysis are wireline, wireless, and fiber optics. The results and analysis are based on an end-user survey, weighing their input about various factors including product features, test vendor selection, end-user knowledge, purchase influencers, and distribution structure. The base year for this study is 2013.

Executive Summary

• The key product segments covered in this deliverable include wireline, wireless, and fiber optic communication test equipment.
• The survey was answered by several types of end users consisting of network equipment manufacturers, service providers, and original equipment manufacturers.
• The key results of the survey include:
oBrand recognition forms the key criterion for test-vendor selection.
oSpeed, performance, and ease of use are the most sought after product features.
oPortable instruments are preferred whenever possible.
oEnd-user knowledge varies depending on the level of difficulty and sophistication of the test product but improves sales.
oBoth direct and indirect sales are equally prevalent; however, choosing the right distribution channel depends on various factors, including geography and product sophistication.
oCustomers unanimously want to engage with vendors during product development, which will ensure that they get the product they want regarding features, style, and functionality.

Market Overview

The objective of this survey is to analyze the various requirements of communication test equipment end users, globally, and provide test vendors with input and strategies they can use to achieve higher sales of their equipment.
For the purpose of this analysis, Frost & Sullivan has segmented the communication test equipment market into 3 categories. They include:

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
