Global Communications Processor Market: General Outline

Communications processors are devices that effectuate the transfer of data and enhance the data-embedding ability of generic processors. Several electronic devices that show multiplicity of functions are the pretext behind the rise of the market for communications processors. The use of semiconductors has pervaded various industrial longitudes, and nimble electronics have glutted the market. This contributes to the demand for communications processors due to their ability to effectively etch vital data, and successively transfer it through an effective data-artery. Data storage is largely dependent on cloud computing services provided by various operators, which further fuels the demand for communications processors. The trend to buy devices and equipment that cater to a wide range of functionalities is pushing the market to fruition. The tractable nature of communication processors adds to their distinction, and makes them an effective resort for various industries. The useful features offered by these processors along with the high capabilities to transfer data make them the cynosure for the telecommunications industry. The growing surge in demand for smartphones and tablets is in turn escalating the demand for these processors.

Although the market for communications processors is placed at the helm of development, the technology employed towards crafting these devices is complex and herculean. This means that even a speck of error could render the device inefficient, which lowers the trust in the market. However, with rising affinity towards Internet of Things (IoT), the market growth is expected to continue soaring high. PMC Sierra and Freescale are two important market entities who have a substantial reach in the market for communications processors. 

Communication processors are devices in communication systems that carry out operations on data such as processing or modifying the data or transferring data to different parts of the system. These processors are specifically optimized to support communication systems. The optimizations are built inside the processor’s software and/or hardware which enables it to perform its tasks in an efficient manner. Communications processors interface peripheral devices such as tape units, disk units, printers, terminals, and different networks with the host computer. Data transfer between the communications processor and the host computer is achieved through a high speed parallel interface, while the processor interacts with peripheral devices through serial interfaces and communications networks. Communications processors manage computer communications such as error check and correction, network control, protocol processing, data buffering and routing, and data format conversion. Thus, the use of such processors off-loads the host computer from tasks such as, transmitting/receiving messages and managing peripheral devices. A fundamental responsibility of these processors is traffic management which includes establishing and controlling communications between data terminal equipment, switching devices, intranet, and a host computer. Continuous research and development has resulted in the development of advanced communications processors with utilities for monitoring response time, event logging, diagnostic testing, system administration, and terminal status indication. Depending on the configuration, vendor, and the environment, communications processors are referred to as gateway switches, communications servers, hubs, front-end processors (FEPs), and controllers. 

Communications processors are classified on the basis of their flexibility, features, and capabilities. These include the type of terminal equipment supported, aggregate bandwidth, and the host interfaces and protocols supported. To create a required configuration, the communications processor application software is customized, and this process is referred to as system generation. The growing need for multi-functionality on devices is the primary factor driving the communications processor market. Rising demand for wireless communication and the rapid growth of the global consumer electronics market is further fueling the demand of communications processors. The emergence of cloud computing and virtualization is further likely to boost the communications processor market. Multicore communications processors enable better network visibility, scalability, and manageability in supporting software defined networking (SDN) and the adoption of network functions virtualization (NFV) by telecom operators, cloud and web service providers. Such multicore processors are expected to further drive the global communications processor market. 

The communications processor market can be segmented on the basis of communications systems, layer in the communication system, applications, and regions.
