As the IoT is quickly moving into various industries and applications, the telecommunications industry, among others, will see a greater number of smarter, faster, and wearable devices for consumers. This, in turn, will continue driving the demand for test equipment solutions. The idea that 5G will be necessary to bring the potential future IoT and streaming video use cases seems more real now as it is expected to provide improved data bandwidth, decreased latency in the network, and increased capacity. Small cells and HetNets will continue to gain momentum as ways to increase the capacity of mobile networks. In addition, VoLTE is expected to be the game changer by offering superior quality voice to customers. This presentation will discuss the key trends in the mobile and wireless industry as well as their influence on the test equipment market.
