LTE Adoption to Drive Network Monitoring and Optimization Spend Past US$40 Billion

03 Jun 2015

​People everywhere want mobile broadband and the high speed performance of LTE fans the flame of insatiable consumer desire. Operators can actively manage this traffic and achieve capacity improvement that is equivalent to virtually free spectrum and network gear. ABI Research sees the worldwide market for mobile network monitoring and optimization exceeding US$40 billion over the next 5 years.

LTE uptake in China leads worldwide traffic growth, including video, and pulls along the monitoring and optimization markets. “Widespread adoption of SSL-encryption changes the game,” says Joe Hoffman, Practice Director, Mobile Networks, “from compression, transcoding and transrating to throttling, pacing and manipulating the Adaptive Bitrate Stream from the content provider to achieve operator goals. State-of-the-art traffic management technology delivers a better customer experience and virtual capacity gains that operators will appreciate.”

Mobile optimization is more important than ever and the advent of all IP services, including VoLTE, VoWi-Fi, LTE-U / LAA requires close attention from the operator to assure QoE. With an eye to monetization, DPI, Optimization and Policy remain the largest segments and come together as part of a total revenue enhancement solution. All leading network infrastructure vendors, including Ericsson, Nokia Networks and Alcatel-Lucent, offer their own or partnered solutions.Likewise, the independents, such as Citrix ByteMobile and Openwave Mobility, provide differentiated, targeted and ready-to-use solutions for every mobile broadband operator.

These forecasts are published as a part of the mobile network monitoring and optimization market update, which tracks various elements including UE client optimization, radio test, radio probes, routing / transport optimization, DPI, TCP, video and audio optimization, and policy servers.

These findings are part of ABI Research’sNext Generation Optimization, DPI & Policy Market Research.
