Frost & Sullivan: Fiber-to-the-Antenna and LTE Deployments Strengthen Business Case for Fiber Optic Test Equipment Globally

Reducing cost of ownership by OEMs crucial to win new customers

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The future of fiber optics is being shaped by the need for higher bandwidth, signal rates, and on-chip connections. Technologies like fiber-to-the-antenna (FTTA), long term evolution (LTE) deployments along with 100 and 400 gigabyte installations are therefore bolstering the global fiber optic test equipment market. Integrated or platform-based test products, in particular, are gaining momentum for their ability to perform more than one type of test using the same test equipment.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Analysis of the Global Fiber Optic Test Equipment Market, finds that the market earned revenue of $603.8 million in 2013 and estimates this to reach $884.9 million in 2020. The fiber inspection probe is an emerging product that accounted for approximately $45 million in sales during 2013 and continues to grow at a significant pace.

Fiber penetration is increasing in the broadband and access space with significant roll-outs in mobility through FTTA, fiber-to-the-tower (FTTT), distributed antenna systems (DAS), and cloud or centralized-radio access networks (CRAN). Companies are employing fiber cable assemblies that cater to FTTA, while service providers are installing this technology where thousands of assemblies are generated in a week. All these factors contribute to the uptake of fiber optic test equipment.

"The proliferation of electronics and reduction in chip sizes will also augment the demand for innovative test technologies," said Frost & Sullivan Measurement and Instrumentation Program Manager Sujan Sami. "One such potential opportunity lies in micro structure fiber and hollow fiber with higher non-linear limits."

New connector technologies for the fiber application space are likewise advancing at a fast pace, further adding to the need for fiber optic test solutions. Several new customers have already adopted this technology and more deployments are expected in the future.

While this demand strengthens, scope for global test vendors will remain limited, as several Chinese vendors take away from their market share by offering low-cost, acceptable-quality products. In order for global suppliers to strengthen their foothold in the global market, they must reduce cost of ownership while sustaining growth in manufacturing, as well as adhere to various standards and certifications.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
