Wireline Test Equipment Market Introduction

Wireline technology plays a significant role in the telecom industry, although wireless communication is growing exponentially all over the world. Adoption of fiber optic cable has increased at a significant rate in the recent past due to high durability and reliability. Copper fiber is losing importance in the telecom industry due to the occurrence of signal losses. Same is the case with measurement and test equipment. Wide bandwidth, and high dynamic range front end with low-noise clock is crucial for analyzing the amplitude and timing of the network signals. High speed network test equipment requires data converters with high speed that assist with the noise and timing margin calculation. Accurate time margin and jitter measurements are provided with the low phase noise clocks. Moreover, efficient power supply is required that improves thermal performance and reduces board area.

Wireline Test Equipment Market Dynamics

Usage of dense wavelength-division multiplexing in networking

Dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) technology is gaining acceptance in the market as it is capable of increasing the data carrying capacity of optical fiber by almost 72 times with the help of C band. Passive wavelength-division multiplexing (PWDM) and Wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) were used before DWDM came into existence. DWDM has made its way into testing of metropolitan area network (MAN) and mobile backhaul applications. DWDM combines and then transmits multiple signals simultaneously at different wavelengths in a fiber. This increases the physical capacity of a medium. DWDM instruments thus smoothen the working of and services provided by optical fibers. Hence, these factors are increasing the use of DWDM, and DWDM requires constant testing and accurate measurement of time delays and jitter, thus leading to higher adoption of wireline test equipment.

Internet protocol tester

IP testers transmit exact deformities and issue in a network, checking the networks mainly for latency, bandwidth, and accuracy. Mainly, IP testers check the reliability and stress of an optical fiber due to high-speed data travel and network, respectively. These tests ensure negligible interruptions during video chats or voice-over calls. As optical fibers can support speeds up to 100 Gbps, these can be stretched to major cities and long distances. Using these test equipment has become all the more crucial as governments have now come up with a set of protocols that follow international standards related to quality of optical fiber, interoperability issues and, upgrading the speed of data carrier packets.

Moreover, the increasing adoption of Fiber to the home is also increasing the consumption of optic fiber cables, thus accelerating the growth of the wireline test equipment market.

However, many technical anomalies such as need for different testing equipment depending on the network and the protocol type might restrict the market growth during the forecast period. The test equipment might also differ according to the cable used.
