Triple play services spur CATV test equipment growth

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan shows growth in the global CATV test equipment markets due in large part to the need for quality triple play services.

The report, “World Cable TV Test Equipment Markets,” also identified advances in communication applications as alerting the CATV test equipment market to the importance of equipment developments and upgrades.

The Frost & Sullivan market analysis reveals that revenues in this industry totaled $535 million in 2005 and are expected to reach $755.6 million in 2012.

Triple play services are likely to have a high impact on the CATV test equipment market, according to Frost & Sullivan. With the increasing use of fiber-optic based technologies, demand for optical time domain reflectometers (OTDRs) is increasing, mainly due to the growing uptake of high definition television, IPTV, fiber to the curb, home and premise (FTTx), as well as other fiber-optic based technologies.

However, as telecom operators begin to offer triple play services, they are emerging as a potential threat to the cable operators. Even though the telcos use different network architectures to deliver all their service packages, by offering video services, they are entering into the hardcore triple play arena. Currently, video services constitute an estimated 10 percent of the total service offerings of the telcos.
