Migration towards Triple Play Facilitates Growth in the European Communication Test Equipment Market
As triple play becomes a term synonymous with broadband networks, European service providers are competing aggressively to offer telephony, data and video services to their customers. While telecom companies are incorporating Internet Protocol television (IPTV) to their services, many European cable operators are upgrading older cable networks to support the deployment of voice, video and data services. However, the poor state of copper access networks and inventory records pose significant challenges in the march towards telecommunication convergence. Consequently, this is ensuring a greater need for communication test equipment, thus bolstering the growth of the European communication test equipment market.
This Frost & Sullivan research service is an analysis of the European markets for communication test equipment. While focusing on gigabit Ethernet (GbE) test equipment, fibre optic test equipment (FOTE), as well as voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and x digital subscriber line (xDSL) test equipment, the study also discusses prevailing market drivers, restraints READ MORE >
