SONET/SDH Related Test Equipment: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 29, 2010
SONET/SDH test equipment helps service providers in testing the behavior and performance of SONET/SDH standard. Despite growing interest in innovative and advanced technologies like the Internet protocol/multiprotocol label switching (IP/MPLS) and Ethernet, SONET/SDH still holds its ground as a chosen technology for long distance and metro services. The paradigm shift towards superior bandwidth in SONET/SDH market, which comes from the need to migrate to superior data rates, in turn mandates stepping up the prevailing SONET/SDH network. Considering that these upgraded SONET/SDH networks will have to be tested, the demand for newer and improved test equipment will surely be on the rise. For instance, greater SONET/SDH rates like OC-768 and OC-192 necessitate the use of upgraded test equipment. Also, the rampant increase in the use of multi-service transport products in metro networks, and in few instances, in core networks, is boosting the demand for SONET/SDH Test Equipment. Re-configurable modem deployments, particularly next-generation SONET interworks, with optical switching are taking place in a large number. Deployment of these network elements is augmenting the growth further for SONET/SDH test equipment market.
As stated by the new market research report on SONET/SDH Related Test Equipment, North America and Europe collectively account for about 68% share of the global market estimated in 2009. The SONET/SDH test equipment market in Europe is expected to register the fastest growth, largely supported by the reliability of SONET/SDH technology, which strengthens the market presence in East European nations. In segmental perspective, strong opportunities for growth lie in the Jitter/Wander Test Equipment as well as next-generation SONET/SDH test equipment market. The growing inclination towards next-generation technologies is primarily due to the rapid expansion of data applications.
Though most of the opportunities for SONET/SDH are expected to originate from content delivery providers, ISPs and Wireless carrier customers, the industry is up against a challenge in the form of competition from IP/Ethernet. Additionally, integration will emerge into a major challenge test equipment vendors will have to reckon with in the upcoming years. While integrated test solutions are the key to success for vendors in a competitive marketplace, developing and providing the same proves to be quite a challenge. One of the major difficulties is designing a comprehensive & integrated solution, which can offer a high performance/price ratio to end-users, essentially for installation & maintenance market, by utilizing a single integrated tester rather than multiple testers to perform various tests needed.
Key players dominating the marketplace include JDS Uniphase Corporation, Anritsu Company, Sunrise Telecom Incorporated, EXFO Inc, Spirent Communications plc, Yokogawa Electric Corporation Inc, Digital Lightwave Inc, NetScout Systems Inc, IXIA, and Ideal Industries Networks Division, among others.
