Research and Markets has announced the addition of World IP Video Test & Measurement Markets to their offerings.

The Frost & Sullivan research service entitled World IP Video Test & Measurement Market provides an overview of the various segments of this market, namely, video analyzers, load testers, hand-held testers, monitoring protocol analyzers, passive monitoring systems, active monitoring systems, and algorithms.

It also includes analysis of the market based on geographic regions, applications and end-users.

As recently as 2003, there was virtually a non-existent market for IPTV test and measurement equipment. However, by 2005 it had grown significantly to register revenues of US$52.2 million, representing an increase of 38.4% over 2004. The market is expected to grow by more than five times that by the end of the forecast period, which ends in 2010.

Telecommunication and cable companies are likely to compete aggressively to offer triple play services, and this is anticipated to drive VoIP test equipment and solution vendors to provide IPTV test capability within the same box.

“There is an increasing trend among telecom companies to deploy complex wired and wireless networks to support data, voice, as well as video applications over a common infrastructure,” the research firm said.

“With triple play services gaining popularity, deploying a pure-play IP video network seems a distant possibility. The focus is clearly on developing next-generation networks on which data, voice, and video applications can seamlessly converge.”
