Evaluate Future Forecasts to 2013 for the World's Enterprise WAN Services Market.

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the Frost & Sullivan report: Global Enterprise WAN Services Markets to their offering.

The Frost & Sullivan research service titled Global Enterprise WAN Services Markets provides market sizing and forecasts from 2005 to 2013 as well as segmentation for revenues by network operators versus virtual network operators (VNOs), and integrators, resellers, and outsourcers. Percentage breakouts are also provided for revenues by global vertical markets, network operator managed versus unmanaged services, and network operator services type are also provided. In this research service, Frost & Sullivan's expert analysts thoroughly examine the following technologies: frame relay, ATM, international private line, MPLS-based IP VPN, and Ethernet.


The following technologies are covered in this research:

Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM): A dedicated connection-switching technology that organizes digital data into 53-byte cell units instead of variable sized packets or frames, and transmits them over a physical medium.

Ethernet: A frame-based networking technology for local area networks, metro area networks and now wide area networks. Ethernet is standardized as IEEE 802.3.

Frame Relay: A cost-efficient data transmission technology for sending variable sized frames of digital traffic between LANs and end points in a WAN.

International Private Line/Leased Circuit: A point-to-point private line used by an organization to communication between offices that are geographically dispersed. IPL or IPLC is also called Clear Channel.

IP Virtual Private Network (IP VPN): A VPN based on Internet protocol (IP). A VPN is the interconnection of multiple sites via a private backbone network, or public Internet. IP-VPN services can include both CPE- and network-based IP connectivity. VPNs are widely used by enterprises to create wide area networks (WANs) that span large geographic areas, to provide site-to-site connections to branch offices and to allow mobile users to dial up their company LANs.

Multiprocotol Label Switching (MPLS): An Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)-defined protocol that overcomes some of the shortcomings of IP-based networks. MPLS routes by label, rather than packet, making it possible for MPLS switches to steer IP traffic onto a variety of routes rather than the single path allowed in traditional switched and routed networks.

Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS): Uses MPLS to deliver Ethernet-based multipoint connectivity over IP/MPLS networks.

Wide Area Network (WAN): A network covering a wide geographical area, involving a vast array of computers. The most well-known example of a WAN is the Internet.
