Mobile data consumption is growing, making way for LTE testing solutions, says Heavy Reading Mobile Networks Insider
BOSTON, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As mobile data usage continues to grow, wireless networks are suffering, giving way to new Long Term Evolution (LTE) testing, measurement and service assurance solutions, according to the latest report from Heavy Reading Mobile Networks Insider (www.heavyreading.com/mobile-networks), a subscription research service from Heavy Reading (www.heavyreading.com).
Testing of LTE Networks Vital as Network Growth Explodes examines the LTE test and measurement market, analyzing the top testing categories of LTE test and measurement, as well as the strongest drivers in the market. The report discusses challenges and trends in the industry. It includes a comparative analysis of solutions available and examines the geographic landscape of the market expected over the next 18-24 months.
"The phenomenal and continuing growth in mobile data consumption, driven largely by the exploding market of new smartphones, tablets, readers and other wireless devices, is stressing wireless networks like never before," says Denise Culver, research analyst with Heavy Reading Insider and author of the report. "Elements within the network are now expected to handle increasingly complex procedures at performance levels unheard of just a few years ago."
The reality that the success of a network is only as good as how the network acts under live subscriber results is driving increased attention to LTE testing, measurement and service assurance solutions, Culver says. "As LTE testing and measurement continues to prove out networks, leading operators will start providing tighter SLAs to enterprise customers over LTE networks," she continues. "Today's subscribers generate more data than ever, and the key for operators to meet increasingly high expectations will be to extract relevant, actionable and immediate insights from this data that they can use to ensure seamless, high-quality end-user experiences and engage with subscribers in the ways they prefer."
Key findings of Testing of LTE Networks Vital as Network Growth Explodesinclude the following:
LTE usage is increasing because operators have new pricing strategies, including tiered pricing and multi-device pricing, that are monetizing the consumer trend to multiple devices.
The majority of worldwide service providers should be LTE operational by the second half of 2013, which will drive a large increase in several LTE test categories.
MNOs must reduce costs through automation by reducing workforces and by significantly lowering repetitive mistakes.
Although service providers are focusing on LTE, legacy systems remain a concern, especially in regard to interference between the two systems.
Testing of LTE Networks Vital as Network Growth Explodesis available as part of an annual single-user subscription (six issues) to Heavy Reading Mobile Networks Insider, priced at $1,595. Individual reports are available for $900 (single-user license).
