Frost & Sullivan: As Mobile Operators Look To Enhance Customer Experience, Demand For Wi-Fi Test Equipment Intensifies Globally

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With mobile operators increasingly turn to Wi-Fi to flawlessly offload Internet data traffic, Wi-Fi test equipment has become vital to enhance user experience and lower the risk of losing smartphone customers. This rise in demand for testing will lead to the development of innovative solutions, ensuring the steady growth of the global Wi-Fi test equipment market.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (, Analysis of the Global Wi-Fi Test Equipment Market, finds that the market earned revenues of more than $190.1 million in 2012 and estimates this to reach $442.6 million in 2018.

Affordable, unlicensed and pervasive Wi-Fi technology has emerged as the most popular solution to handle excessive Internet traffic. Its transformation from a convenience service to a scalable and reliable network service necessitates frequent testing.

"The ability for Wi-Fi test systems to identify high-demand service areas and improve customer experience by enhancing network capacity and performance, while lowering data delivery costs has accelerated their adoption," said Frost & Sullivan Measurement & Instrumentation Program Manager Olga Yashkova-Shapiro.

The use of Wi-Fi in companies, small offices, hospitals within mission-critical devices such as new medical, smart meter, and home automation applications, has made the rigorous testing of Wi-Fi more crucial. Regulatory bodies are establishing standard testing protocols to ensure seamless operation and improved security between Wi-Fi and cellular networks, offering added opportunities for test equipment vendors.

However, the increasing complexities of these standards, along with rapidly developing technologies, also pose a challenge to equipment suppliers. Continuous innovation and upgrades are vital to ensure high-quality products. As such, integrated, end-to-end test solutions are expected to become popular.
