Legacy Broadband Services Migrate to NGN

A recent survey of U.S. organizations with over 50 employees and multiple locations, shows that legacy services remain a dominant component of the WAN telecom landscape, with 62 percent of the organizations surveyed currently having legacy networks, according to an In-Stat study.

But closer analysis reveals that this segment is in the process of a significant transition, the high-tech market research firm says. A majority of respondents to the survey who currently use legacy services are migrating or planning to migrate, some or all of their legacy networks to other WAN services.

"It is important to note that this does not represent an overnight, wholesale migration away from legacy services," says Steve Hansen, In-Stat analyst.

"Further analysis of survey results indicates that, as a rough average, respondents are planning to migrate approximately one quarter of their legacy sites to other services over the next 12 months."

The In-Stat research covers the U.S. market for next generation business network services. It provides analysis of a survey of U.S. organizations with over 50 employees and multiple locations about their network services use. Discussion of business and application drivers influencing network services use is included.

In-Stat's market study found the following:

- IP and Ethernet-based WAN services provide greater capabilities to more efficiently provide multi-point types of implementations that also support converged applications with advanced features such as QoS.

- Operators are taking a proactive role in the migration process.

- Internet access and next generation network (NGN) services were most cited by survey respondents for addition or expansion in 2008.

GenAI Revolution: The Future of B2B Sales Apps

When B2B buyers consider a purchase they spend just 17 percent of that time meeting with vendors. When they are comparing multiple suppliers‚ time spent with any one salesperson is 5 or 6 percent. Self-directed B2B buyer online research has already changed procurement. IT vendors are less likely to be involved in solution assessment. Now, more disruptive changes are on the horizon. By 2028, 60 percent of B2B seller work will be executed through conversational user interfaces via Generative Artificial Intelligence sales technologies -- that's up from less than 5 percent in 2023, according to Gartner.

Rise of AI-Enabled Smart Traffic Management

The demand for smart traffic management systems has grown due to rising urban populations and increasing vehicle ownership. With more people and cars concentrated in cities, problems like traffic congestion, air pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions are pressing issues. Since the early 2000s, government leaders have been exploring ways to leverage advances in IoT connectivity, sensors, artificial intelligence (AI), and data analytics to address these transportation challenges. The concept of a Smart City emerged in the 2010s, with smart mobility and intelligent traffic management as key components.  Smart Traffic Management Market Development Concerns about continued climate change, as well as cost savings from improved traffic flow, have further motivated local government investment in these advanced systems. According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, they found that by 2028, smart traffic management investment will be up by 75 percent from a 2023 figure of
