No slowdown in Canadian cabling market, researcher says

Oct. 18, 2001
October 18, 2001 The Yankee Group says 90% of Canadian organizations will recable in the next five years.

As many as 9 out of 10 Canadian companies will need to overhaul their corporate communications infrastructure in the next five years

That's the finding of a new report from the Boston-based Yankee Group ( The report is titled "Vicissitudinous Viscera: The New Importance of Corporate Communications Cabling." It explains that with the proliferation of bandwidth-consuming applications such as voice-over-broadband, video streaming and other wideband applications, IT and communications managers will be forced to upgrade and pay closer attention to the design, implementation, and management of their cabling system infrastructure.

The report analyzes the present state of cabling in Canada, and why effective IT infrastructure design and management will be the key to realizing the full benefits of technology. It says that as corporate users experiment with these seemingly inexhaustible resources, problems will inevitably erupt.

"The integration of voice and data services, combined with the multitude of bandwidth-demanding services, has created the need for transmission facilities that incorporate far more raw capacity than is currently in place," says Jeremy Depow, senior analyst for the Yankee Group's Canadian Market Strategies research and consulting practice. "Along with the increased complexities of communications infrastructure, outside expertise will be an important factor in a functioning cabling system."
