Cellular offloading strategies drive wi-fi test equipment market


frost and sullivanIn its revised mobile service bundles, SingTel added free wi-fi access for its mobile users in selected locations in Singapore. This is said to be part of its strategy to alleviate data congestion on its 3G and 4G networks.

The trend is set to continue across the globe as telcos wrestle to cope with the increasing demand for mobile data. To enable wi-fi access, they need to purchase wi-fi test equipment, creating strong opportunities for Wi-Fi test equipment manufacturers globally.

According to Frost & Sullivan, the wi-fi test equipment market earned revenues of US$528.9 million in 2013. This is expected to more than double to reach US$1.09 billion in 2020.

Huawei successfully tests 10Gbps wi-fi

HuaweiJust as consumers are enthusing about 1Gbps fibre broadband, Huawei has upped the ante in wi-fi speed with the successful testing of 10Gbps wi-fi  in laboratory trials at its Shenzhen campus.

This is a significant milestone, as it is marks the dawn of a new era in big data applications using ultra-fast wi-fi technology to boost data rates to 10Gbps.

The 10Gbps prototype achieved a record transmission data rate of 10.53Gbps on 5GHz frequency bands. The success of this prototype development, and the tenfold increase in spectrum efficiency that made it possible, paves the way for the validation of technologies needed to support the creation of next generation wi-fi.
