Research and Markets (Dublin, Ireland) has added WinterGreen Research's report, "Worldwide Telecommunications and Communications Market Opportunities, Strategies, and Forecasts, 2006 to 2012", to its offering.

Research and Markets (Dublin, Ireland) announced the addition of WinterGreen Research, Inc.'s report, "Worldwide Telecommunications and Communications Market Opportunities, Strategies, and Forecasts, 2006 to 2012", to its offering.

According to the report's worldwide telecommunications and communications equipment market forecasts, shipments in dollars analysis indicates strong growth in very large existing markets. Markets at $267.2 billion in 2005 are anticipated to reach $628.2 billion by 2012. Worldwide telecommunications service provider equipment market forecasts indicate that markets at $20.0 billion in 2005 are anticipated to reach $64.3 billion by 2012. Continued growth of infrastructure plant is anticipated as wireline networks are used to provide Internet protocol signal transport for wireless and Internet networks.

Specifically, the report indicates the following:

-- Service provider spending is starting to grow in certain areas. After several years of decline in service provider spending, the global telecommunications networking industry has stabilized. Service providers and telecommunications vendors are emerging from an industry restructuring.

-- Communications systems are evolving on unprecedented scale. Challenges remain. Service provider customers operate in a fast-changing environment driven by technology, competition and regulatory change. End users are demanding fast, personalized, easy-to-use communications.

-- Customers are relying on applications. Applications and services are enabled by technologies. Mobile high-speed data, broadband access, next-generation optical networking, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and multimedia converged services are segments. Strategy and portfolio are focused on identifying and capitalizing on growth opportunities. The ability to meet end-user demand and generate new revenue is being combined simultaneously with managing capital expenditures and reducing operating expenses.

-- The way networks are used has changed how switches must perform and the capabilities they need to have. The Internet has shifted traffic patterns so that there is more traffic being originated and managed at the edge of the network. More users are mobile. Users are not just at home or within an office building.

-- People work from across campus, across town, and across the country over wireless and wired connections. Users need to be able to have access to voice, video, and data applications, yet do so securely, from any of those locations. To address these needs, enterprise networks require intelligent workgroup switches that deliver high throughput, are highly available, are easily managed, and provide secure LAN access for mobile users.

-- Stackable Ethernet switches are designed to meet changing network needs. They are fixed configuration, triple-speed (10/100/1000) switches that deliver advanced features and services required. Switches have the ability to expand to meet the expanding network needs. The increases network performance, improves application response times, secures the LAN, and enhances user productivity by maximizing mobility, network capacity, and services over existing category 5/5E/6 cabling.
