Low Cost, Upgrade-ability and R&D Intensity Drive Business Value
Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) test equipment enables service providers, data centers, and enterprises to achieve high network performance by testing and solving network connectivity problems. Ethernet is used for both local area network (LAN) and wide area network (WAN) connectivity, helping in simplifying network management by lowering operational expenses for Ethernet infrastructure. Ethernet test equipment is most often used to verify signal and link integrity of networks at all speeds. The trend that has gained traction is the introduction of new technologies like 5G, Internet of Things, cloud computing, which require robust network connections for their successful implementation. T&M vendors must invest more in R&D activities and develop test equipment better aligned with customer demand. Owing to high competition in the market, price, time to market, portability and performance of the test equipment are the key competitive factors in the global GbE T&M market.
