Research and Markets: Global MPLS over WiMAX AcaeaEURoe Fixed and Mobile: Opportunities for Global Telecom Markets - Now Available
Dublin, Oct 12, 2009 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/00039d/global_mpls_over_w) has announced the addition of the "Global MPLS over WiMAX - Fixed and Mobile: Opportunities for Global Telecom Markets" report to their offering.
This is a report on the opportunities of deployment of MPLS technology on WiMAX such that fixed & mobile subscribers of SMEs and Corporations having national and multi-national spread of businesses can build their own virtual private networks for mission critical applications. Such networking framework shall ensure secured and reliable multi-location connectivity among SMEs & corporate users irrespective of whether they are static and mobile. The existing MPLS service providers can offer such services by either deploying their own WiMAX networks or else by merging their network backbone with the existing WiMAX service providers. This report presents multiple scenarios of the service offerings and revenue projections. The researchers have carried out interviews with 155 IT Strategists, IT Consultants, IT Implementation Managers working with reputed Global Systems Integrators and IT Remote Infrastructure Management specialists and established that in the world of growing globalization of existing as well as new businesses, markets and customers, the corporations are changing their IT strategies from on-site hosting to cloud computing hosting on virtualized infrastructures. Key solutions like Google Apps and IBM LotusLive are actively promoting such solutions to the SMEs and Corporations. The key to success of the new Cloud Hosting strategies is high speed secured network infrastructure especially for the mobile workforce. MPLS is the de facto choice for secured network connectivity from end users to hosting service providers and the best wireless medium for MPLS connectivity of fixed as well as mobile workforce is WiMAX.
In this context, following are the key findings of the report: - In the current era of economic distress, a large number of SMEs and Corporations across the world are in the process of reducing their infrastructure costs by shifting to virtual enterprise concept.
- Cloud computing is the definite answer to implementation of virtual enterprise that can increase employee mobility & productivity, improve corporate efficiency, improve team collaborations, ensure better access to information, and reduce costs.
- Solutions like Google Apps, IBM LotusLive, SalesForce.com and Amazon Elastic Compute can ensure virtualization of SMEs and large enterprises at high pace in reliable fashion that can ensure significant cost cutting of the enterprises.
- Secured networking will be the biggest roadblock for transition of SMEs and large enterprises to private cloud platforms and MPLS is the best possible solution to this challenge.
- The increased mobility of employees due to virtual enterprise transformations will need MPLS to be transitioned to the user laptops with wireless connectivity. In this context, WiMAX will serve as the most viable solution.
- MPLS over WiMAX solutions will boost the markets of cloud computing, WiMAX as well as MPLS.
The researchers estimated a market potential of $1 Billion for one time WiMAX services and $13 Billion annual recurring for WiMAX services in the knowledge based sectors of UK and all countries of European Union put together. In addition, the researchers estimated a market potential of $4 Billion annual recurring for MPLS over WiMAX services in the knowledge based sectors of UK and all countries of European Union put together.
Target Audiences of the report: - Senior and Top Management of SMEs and Large Enterprises having IT enabled business - Global IT strategists and consultants - Global CIOs and CTOs - Global WiMAX service providers - Global MPLS service providers - Global Investment Companies in telecom sector - Global systems integrators - Global OEMs for MPLS and WiMAX connectivity Partial list of companies mentioned in this report: - Cisco - Alcatel-Lucent - Motorola - Huawei - Nokia-Siemens - IBM LotusLive - Google Apps - SalesForce.com - SUN Microsystems - Ubuntu - Amazon Elastic Compute - Microsoft - AT&T - Vodafone - Reliance Communications - Bharti Airtel - Idea - Tata Indicom - Verizon - AT&T - China Mobile - Deutsche Telekom - France Telecom - Etisalat Keywords: MPLS - WiMAX - Cloud Computing - Virtual Enterprise - Remote Infrastructure Management (RIM) - Virtualization Executive Summary: The transition towards cloud computing has already started given that SMEs and large enterprises are slowly realizing the enormous benefits of on demand hosted infrastructure with fixed service levels but variable charges. The world has already witnessed the largest ever transition to cloud computing when Valeo decided to transition their enterprise IT enabled business applications to Google Apps Suite for their 30000 employees working in 193 entities in 27 countries. The global IT strategists may either be supporting or opposing this move but this report proves that this was an excellent move looking into the globalization of Valeo's markets & customers and the changing economic landscapes. The liberty of maintaining luxury infrastructures will soon go away from the hands of SMEs and large enterprises amidst growing competition and reduction of costs demanded by the customers. Hence, virtual enterprise is the answer to this challenge that shall lead to increased mobility of employees, improved employee satisfaction (as they will be allowed to work from the place of their choice), lower running cost of business, enhanced employee productivity, enhanced team collaboration, and above all, better IT management and governance. The biggest challenge, however, shall be secured networking from client laptops to the enterprise cloud resources given that security issues in Internet Broadband doesn't make it a valid choice for client connectivity. In this context, the researchers have found that Global MPLS over WiMAX is the best possible solution for client connectivity because it not only ensures secured connections to the cloud but also high performance wireless connectivity for the client computers for IP Multimedia applications (Data, Voice and Video). This report presents an entire new market segment of mobile MPLS connectivity that shall enhance the markets of MPLS, WiMAX and Cloud service providers considerably.
