Telecommunications Sector to Hold the Largest Market Share

Signal analyzers form the backbone of the telecom industry as
determining and producing required signal spectrum and strength is of
upmost importance. Optical spectrum analyzers are used to allow
continuous monitoring of the required output signals. The revolution in
mobile technology, and wireless technology has enabled it to evolve from
1G to 4G.

Currently researchers are working on defining next generation of
wireless communication, i.e., 5G through the emphasis on small cell
concepts, network speed and capacity enhancement and introducing new
communications technologies - the future 5G2. Improving the speed and
capacity is required to make the communication for potentially billions
of wireless devices feasible. To support the combination of small cells
and mm-wave radio for future 5G access, fiber-optic communication plays
an important role in both the backhaul and fronthaul networks, thus
driving the need for OSA's to fulfill this need.

Notable Developments in the Market

  • Yokogawa released a benchtop AQ6360 optical spectrum analyzer,
    primarily for production testing of data communication and telecom
    devices, including laser diodes, optical transceivers, and optical
    amplifiers. The instrument is the companies first aimed at testing
    telecom devices during and after production.
  • Viavi Solutions Inc. announced a definitive agreement to acquire the
    Test and Measurement business of Cobham plc for USD 455 million. The
    acquisition is aimed at strengthening the company's competitive
    position in 5G deployment and diversity the company's military, public
    safety and avionics test markets.
