GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on E1/T1 Transceiver (LIU/Framer) markets. Global market for E1/T1 Transceiver (LIU/Framer) is projected to reach US$957 million by 2020, driven by increasing demand for network bandwidth from an expanding base of mobile subscribers and the slow pace of transition to the Ethernet platform.

E1/T1 Transceivers (LIU/Framer): A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – As the universally adopted method of voice and data transmission over public switched telephone network (PSTN), T1 and E1 represent well established standards in the telecommunications industry. T1 and E1 lines are used to provide simultaneous transmission as well as receipt of several voice or data channels, as well as unchannelized raw bit streams. While T1 is capable of handling 24 connections on a single link at speeds of 1.544 Mbps, E1 is capable of carrying signals at speeds of 2.048 Mbps. T1 is used in the US, Japan and Canada, while E1 is the digital data communication system in use across Europe and Australia. Offered by telephone companies and telecom service providers, E1 and T1 lines act as point-to-point leased lines and switched lines for applications such as Wide Area Network (WAN), public switched data and voice communications, video conference, ISDN, and Internet access.

E1/T1 Transceivers (LIU/Framer) are capable of providing additional network bandwidth in a simplified networking design to ensure seamless transfer of data, voice and multimedia services between packet and circuit-based networks. Increasing volumes of data and voice traffic, and the subsequent rise in deployments of E1/T1 lines fuelled demand for E1/T1 transceivers (LIU/Framer) over the past few years. With most mobile base stations still relying on TDM based T1/E1 backhaul connections, demand for E1/T1 transceiver solutions is expected to continue to grow in the coming years. Innovatively architectured T1 and E1 transceiver solutions help network operators reduce system cost, minimize design task, and provide interoperability to wireless and wireline backhaul applications.

Increasing number of wireless subscribers, spurt in wireless communication services, rapid growth of mobile Internet services and the ensuing need to enhance efficiency of networks will continue to benefit the market. Despite growing competition from Ethernet, the use of E1/T1 transceivers is expected to remain steady at least through the medium term due to the huge legacy infrastructure in place and the yet high cost of Ethernet access. Although Ethernet is increasingly emerging as the backhaul technology of choice, specific applications continue to deploy SONET/SDH largely because the technology is optimally designed for voice transport, unlike Ethernet which is mainly engineered for transport of data. Also, the adoption of a hybrid TDM/Ethernet platform by wireless service providers, which support SONET, TDM as well as Ethernet services, is sustaining demand for TDM.

As stated by the new market research report E1/T1 Transceivers (LIU/Framer), Asia Pacific represents the largest as well as the fastest growing market worldwide with a CAGR of 22% over the analysis period. Growth in the region is supported by increasing government focus on bridging connectivity gaps in communications infrastructure. Strong government support is playing a major role in driving growth in the telecom industry, which is in turn is providing growth opportunities for E/T1 transceivers (LIU/Framer).

Major players covered in the report include Exar Corporation, Integrated Device Technology Inc., Intel Corporation, Maxim Integrated Products Inc., Microsemi Corporation, M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings Inc., PMC-Sierra Inc., and RAD Data Communications.
