Growth for Multi-Service Access Platforms

Infonetics Research tracks vendor market share and market size for multi-service access platforms (MSAPs) and IP digital subscriber line access multiplexers (IP DSLAMs) in China, India, Japan, South Korea, the rest of Asia Pacific, and the region as a whole.

"The Asia Pacific region represents the largest broadband aggregation hardware opportunity in the world, with China leading the way. The amount of money being spent in China on broadband aggregation equipment is astounding, thanks to a swelling middle class, aggressive national broadband initiatives, and heightened competition among China's newly-restructured telcos to launch premium broadband services and hold on to subscribers," said Jeff Heynen, directing analyst for broadband and video at Infonetics Research.

Although the overall DSL market is shrinking due to the shift from copper to fiber-based PON and Ethernet FTTH, the decline will be slowed by service providers deploying ADSL2+ and VDSL2 to deliver triple play services in China, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, Vietnam, and Indonesia.

- In China, Huawei and ZTE hold the number-one positions in the IP DSLAM and MSAP markets, respectively, in 2008.

- In the rest of Asia Pacific, Alcatel Lucent leads the IP DSLAM market in 2008.

- In general, there is a more nationalistic approach to vendors in Asia Pacific countries, with service providers often preferring to work with local suppliers.

- Incumbent service providers across Asia Pacific are facing the same loss of land-line revenue as their European and North American counterparts, if not greater, thanks to mobile substitution.

- They are turning to bundled voice, video, and Internet services to retain customers while leveraging their existing assets to drive higher revenue.

Digital Identity Verification Market to Reach $16.7B

As more enterprise organizations embrace the ongoing transition to digital business transformation, CIOs and CTOs are adopting new technologies that enable the secure identification of individuals within their key stakeholder communities. A "digital identity" is a unique representation of a person. It enables individuals to prove their physical identity during transactions. Moreover, a digital identity is a set of validated digital attributes and credentials for online interactions -- similar to a person's identity within the physical world. Individuals can use a 'digital ID' to be verified through an authorized digital channel. Usually issued or regulated by a national ID scheme, a digital identity serves to identify a unique person online or offline. Digital Identity Systems Market Development Complementary to more traditional forms of identification, digital identity verification systems can enhance the authenticity, security, confidentiality, and efficiency of
