The Introduction of VoIP Has Had a Significant Impact on the Asian Telecom Market.

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of "2006 Global NGN, IP and VoIP - Volume 2 - Americas, Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia, Pacific" to their offering.

Next Generation Networks (NGN), VoIP (internet telephony), cheaper calls, new IT applications, voice, data and video convergence, VPN, IP networks.

ATM switching is rapidly becoming inadequate (and too costly) for the more advanced multimedia networks, and it is being replaced with NGN Internet Protocol (IP) and Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) technology, which allows users to develop more innovative products and services. This migration from circuit-switched to packet-based networks is a logical progression in the drive towards IP.

VoIP, an application running on NGNs, has already started to gain traction in the market, but as a stand alone product it is unlikely to become a replacement for fixed line telephony. In Europe, the product is becoming very popular in triple play business models. IPTV is another product that is gaining momentum and Fixed-Mobil-Convergence (FMC) is also an application that requires an NGN.

Volume 2 of this report includes information on the developments taking place regionally, including analysis, statistics, forecasts and trends. Detailed information on convergence and FttH infrastructure are covered in different reports.

Key highlights:

--In the US, developments in NGNs are being led by a rapid uptake in VoIP, which is quickly becoming the most competitive sector in the telecommunications market.

--Canada has recently seen a rapid uptake in VoIP and will increasingly migrate towards NGN, IP and VoIP technologies.

--In Europe, by the end of 2006, VoIP will be used by more than two thirds of large companies in countries with a strong broadband penetration.

--Numerous NGN deployments have been made in Eastern Europe, influenced by the liberalised communications markets. Deployments have been made by both the incumbent fixed-line operators and alternative operators.

--VoIP remains banned in many countries of the Middle East, but increasing competition is starting to encourage more use of such convergence products as VoIP and VoD by incumbents and alternative operators.

--NGN rollouts or initiatives have been launched in 12 African countries, some of them based on wireless technologies.

--The introduction of VoIP has had a significant impact on the Asian telecom market as call services become available at greatly reduced prices.

--In Australia, security concerns of the past are waning and a growing number of small to large sized corporates and government departments are now implementing NGN networks.
