Demand for Ethernet, IP and Optical solutions expects to grow dramatically over the coming five years as consumers and businesses purchase broadband service in record numbers. On July 26, 2006, the FCC reported that high-speed connections to the Internet increased by 33 percent in 2005. For this reason, Frost & Sullivan will examine wholesale customers’ bottom line needs and plans to purchase Ethernet, IP and optical services through a multi-client research opportunity.
The analysis will be more than a forecast of wholesale spending; it will uncover spending plans, priorities and attitudes. Because consumer demand for broadband service is growing rapidly, it is essential for carriers, vendors and service providers to gain a competitive insight on budgets and plans for this fast-paced market.

The explosive growth of broadband services over wireline and wireless networks is driving carrier demand for wholesale Ethernet, IP and optical solutions. Dramatic growth in DSL, cable modem and broadband wireless, plus the rapid emergence of FTTH and IPTV, are key boosters for carrier class Ethernet, IP and optical solutions. Carriers who lease wholesale circuits must make significant network infrastructure investments in order to support emerging services.
“There are many opportunities for wholesale Ethernet, IP and optical solutions; virtually all are growing,” explains Senior Analyst Maria Zeppetella. “However, one of the fastest growing is the advanced wireless segment, especially as wireless carriers prepare to accommodate the vast amounts of data traffic generated by broadband wireless applications.”
Timing and costs are the key strategic questions for deploying competitive Ethernet, IP and optical solutions. As carriers plan to build out their networks, Frost & Sullivan will track the developments and help guide the decision making of vendors and service providers. Participants in the research stand to gain a balanced view of: the costs of growth, the investments in network technology, the need for greater capacity in the leased network and the threat to existing services.
Frost & Sullivan’s research will forecast the dramatic changes in carrier spending on wholesale Ethernet, IP and optical solutions: both leased circuits and new investments in network equipment. Through research, both vendors and service providers will receive crucial answers necessary for decision making and growth in the wholesale market.
