Features and benefits
- Provides a comprehensive understanding of business trends and technology investment strategies in WAN services with large enterprises in ANZ.
- Provides recommendations and insights for providers developing their WAN services strategy to address large enterprises in Australia and New Zealand.
The legacy networking technologies of TDM private lines, frame relay, and ATM have been declining rapidly, being replaced by IP VPN and wide area Ethernet network services. MPLS has matured and is currently the main WAN technology for large enterprises in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ).
Compared to other developed regions, the enterprise Ethernet market in ANZ is still in an early stage of its lifecycle. Limited Ethernet competition in comparison to more mature technologies such as MPLS may be restricting its attractiveness and slowing its uptake, but expectations are high.
Increasing adoption of MPLS and Ethernet networks is justified by the growth of networked mission critical business applications, and real-time communications applications, including video.
