Move Towards Digital Technologies Necessitates Bit Error Rate Testing, Finds Frost & Sullivan

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Advances in key technologies such as synchronous optical networking (SONET)/synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH) and Ethernet over SONET (EoS), as well as the deployment of 40 and 100 gigabit networks are expected to considerably boost the demand for bit error rate testers (BERTs) globally. The market will particularly benefit from the communication and IT industries' increasing adoption of digital technologies such as high definition multimedia interface (HDMI) and digital audio.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan ( http://www.testandmeasurement.frost.com), Analysis of the Global Bit Error Rate Tester Market, finds that the market earned revenues of $406.1 million in 2011 and estimates this to reach $657.1 million in 2018. The study covers the product segments of traditional BERT and functional BERT.

If you are interested in more information on this research, please send an email to Jeannette Garcia, Corporate Communications, at jeannette.garcia@frost.com, with your full name, company name, job title, telephone number, company email address, company website, city, state and country.

"As digital interfaces are complex in nature, testing them is challenging," said Frost & Sullivan Measurement & Instrumentation Industry Manager Sujan Sami. "BERT vendors are expected to develop innovative test solutions to address these complexities, as the current products do not fully satisfy the testing needs of some high-speed digital interfaces."

Customers are increasingly becoming aware of the benefits of modular instruments, creating substantial opportunities for the sale of modular BERTs. Also they are more cost-effective than their traditional counterparts. They are also better positioned to deal with the higher sophistication and constant evolution of electronic products due to their flexibility and software-based approach.

Meanwhile, the use of stand-alone BERTs is declining in installation and maintenance (I&M) applications.
