Robust Growth Predicted for Enterprise Data Services

Posted on: November 14, 2011

  • A Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific Enterprise Data Services Market 2010 news analysis reveals that the market for enterprise data services is robust and it estimates that revenues will almost double and reach $27.20 billion in 2017.
  • The analysis goes on to state that despite having the benefit of advanced technology, enterprise data services appears to be hindered by the rapid uptake of enterprise mobility, which is rather attractive to small and medium businesses.
  • In addition, with an increase in the adoption of cloud computing consolidation of data centers, Ethernet is being adopted for data center-to-data center connectivity because of the huge bandwidth requirement and faster throughput speeds. Hence, over a period of time, the larger branches that are still using multi-protocol switching (MPLS) will gradually change over to Ethernet.
  • However, multi- protocol switching IP virtual private networks are used to connect the smaller branches.
  • Old technologies such as asynchronous transfer mode, frame relay and leased circuits are being cast aside in favor of the new IP Ethernet. High-end MPLS circuits also seem to be fighting a losing battle, especially where speeds in excess of 100 Mbps is required and will probably give way to Ethernet once it becomes more ubiquitous.
