Frost & Sullivan Predicts High Revenue Growth for Companies with 4G Technologies

Frost & Sullivan, European Wireless Test Equipment Market recently came up with a survey which said that the revenues for companies dealing in 4G technologies such as long-term evolution (LTE) and the new LTE-advanced will increase by almost twice in coming 6 years.

The survey clearly shows the growing impact of 4G technologies which are expected to change the way mobile services are used. The study examines the following markets: mobile station testers, base station testers, drive testers, mobile backhaul test equipment, and wireless core test equipment."European service providers remain focused on their ability to offer reliable network infrastructure, while becoming providers of an increasingly complex mobile experience," says Frost & Sullivan Program Manager Olga Yashkova, in a press release. "This requires organizational efforts, investments, and the creation of a new source of revenue to compete with the influx market participants from other markets."

The study says the service providers have to adopt novel test equipment that can help them manage their networks more intelligently. They cannot simply nudge existing technologies out of the market with their new ones. Instead, they must ensure a positive quality of experience (QoE) and quality of service (QoS) by continuing to support the current technologies, while offering cutting-edge solutions.

"Staying ahead of the technology curve enables vendors to gain early access to innovative technology devices and trial networks to validate and test new products," notes Yashkova. "Vendors can choose to either be trailblazers or compete in a commodity-type environment by producing low-end equipment that helps SPs deliver positive QoE and QoS."

In related news, Frost & Sullivan has recognized Vantage Communications with the 2011 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Customer Value Enhancement. The award was based on its recent analysis of the hosted Internet Protocol (IP) telephony and Unified Communications services market.
