Bit Error Rate Testers (BERT): A Global Strategic Business Report

Right from traditional radio communications to more modern digital communication networks like fibre optics, bit-error rate testers (BERT) have and will continue to hold an important place in the area of electronic test and measurement. Modern optical networks are designed to carry bandwidth heavy data traffic, and therefore need to be routinely monitored for errors in data packets transferred over the network. Bit-error rate (BER) testing/Bit-error rate Testers under such a scenario is expected to bask in the limelight of increased focus on quantifying the reliability of the complete transmission system. Quality of Service (QoS) offered being a critical factor for service providers, will result in rapid demand for BERTs among network operators and service providers.

Demand for Bit Error Rate Testers (BERT) in the telecommunication industry is heavily dependent upon capital investment trends among communication device manufacturers and network operators. Investments in monitoring, developing, and deploying mobile and fixed line networks are factors, which largely steer growth patterns in this sector. The perennial need among both network operators and devices manufacturers to continuously address rapidly evolving standards offers a steady flow of opportunities for the global Bit Error Rate Testers (BERT) market. The launch of 3G networks and much anticipated transition to 4G networks from 3G networks in the communications industry will throw up opportunities for growth as the need to find and fix glitches in new digital networks increases with network design complexity. The emergence of newer technologies and data rates, including deployment of 40 Gigabit and 100 Gigabit Ethernet networks and 8 Gigabit Fiber Channel, is also increasing the demand for advanced bit error rate testers.

As stated by the new market research report on Bit Error Rate Testers, North America represents the largest regional market for BERT. Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing regional market for BERT, with dollar sales in the region waxing at a CAGR of more than 10% over the analysis period. By product type, Traditional Bit Error Rate Testers continue to remain the largest segment. Functional Bit Error Rate Testers market represents the fastest growing segment, waxing at a CAGR of about 9.5% over the analysis period. Service Providers segment continue to be the largest end-user market for BERT. Installation & Maintenance represents the most prominent application area.
