MPLS Service Spending to Reach $2.4 Billion by 2015

Wireline telecommunications data services is a growing business communications category that includes expenditures on wide area network (WAN) data transport services.

These enterprise communication services include dedicated cable, DSL, network-based IP VPN, T1, frame relay, ATM, and Ethernet services. MPLS (multiprotocol label switching) service is also part of this group.

It's a high-performance telecom network offering that directs and carries data from one network node to the next with the help of labels -- making it easy to create virtual links between distant nodes.

According to the latest market study by In-Stat, MPLS network services are becoming more popular and business spending will reach $2.4 billion in 2015.

“MPLS is communication protocol agnostic and highly scalable,” says Greg Potter, Analyst at In-Stat.

It was designed to provide a unified data-carrying service for both circuit-based clients and packet-switching clients. A number of different technologies were previously deployed with similar goals, such as frame relay and ATM services.

Newly collected market data suggests that the increase in MPLS spending has had a negative impact on some of these other communication technologies.

In-Stat's latest market study insights include:
  • Frame relay spending will decline 55 percent from 2010 to 2015.
  • Spending on cable data services will increase 34 percent over the forecast period.
  • Small businesses (20-99 employees) will spend a little over $6.2 billion in 2012.
  • The healthcare and social services vertical will experience the largest overall gain, increasing $1.2 billion over the forecast period.

Software-Defined Infrastructure: The Platform of Choice

As more organizations adapt to a hybrid working model for their distributed workforce, enterprise CIOs and CTOs are tasked with delivering new productivity-enabling applications, while also seeking ways to effectively reduce IT cost, complexity, and risk. Traditional IT hardware infrastructure is evolving to more software-based solutions. The worldwide software-defined infrastructure (SDI) combined software market reached $12.17 billion during 2020 -- that's an increase of 5 percent over 2019, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). The market grew faster than other core IT technologies. The three technology pillars within the SDI market are: software-defined compute (53 percent of market value), software-defined storage controller (36 percent), and software-defined networking (11 percent). "Software-defined infrastructure solutions have long been popular for companies looking to eliminate cost, complexity, and risk within their data cente

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
