LTE (Long-Term Evolution) is expected to continue to develop and be deployed as it is used in wireless technology across the globe. Continuous innovations in LTE include LTE Advanced and LTE Advanced Pro, which support unlicensed frequency bands, wider bandwidths, more carrier aggregation, multi-gigabit data rates, full-dimension MIMO and others.

LTE testing equipment is used to overcome the challenges associated with the implementation. LTE testing equipment conducts various tests such as carrier test, battery test, OTA test, field test and conformance test. Also, LTE testing equipment performs the validation and optimisation of solutions to enhance the performance and lifespan of solutions. LTE testing equipment performs carrier tests for evaluating receiver diversity, beam forming, spatial multiplexing, wideband signal analysis and others as well as battery tests that require an emulated wireless link and network to perform realistic use-case analysis for the performance of carrier acceptance testing, network emulation and channel emulation. LTE testing equipment provides an OTA test for protocol handshaking, channel modelling, UE emulation and network emulation. Moreover, LTE testing equipment also performs conformance test for testing the RRM, RF, signalling functionality and performance as per 3GPP & GCF standards.

Initiatives by Governments for the Launch of 4G/5G Projects

Government of various regions are making huge investments for the roll-out of 4G/5G networks and these factors have a positive impact on the growth of LTE testing equipment market. For instance, South Korea has the highest penetration of LTE network around 97% in 2017. Telecommunication companies in South Korea are adopting LTE testing equipment for the test and measurement of LTE in multiple devices. The rapid roll-out of LTE network is expected to create high demand for LTE testing equipment worldwide. For instance -

  • In September 2017, SK Telecom, wireless carrier in South Korea, expanded its LTE technology to 75 cities and 31 countries in Korea. SK Telecom provided a network with speed between 700 Mbps to 900 Mbps. These developments are creating high demand for LTE testing equipment and significantly contributing to the growth of the LTE testing equipment market.

Increasing Demand for LTE Testing Equipment from Telecommunication Service Providers

Increase in the global adoption of smartphones is leading to a rapid increase in data traffic, which is increasing the strain on the communication infrastructure.
