Subscription Overview

Introduction

The enterprise communications segment has been identified as one of the pillars of recovery during turbulent times for the overall telecommunications industry. While it never received the attention, or the "hockey stick" forecasts of the optical or wireless telecom sectors, the need for enterprise applications has perhaps been one of the steadiest. The major replacement wave for enterprise equipment that took place prior to Y2K means there will be a significant opportunity for industry participants to capitalize on the next upgrade cycle within the next two to three years. Technologies such as communication systems (Key telephone systems/Private branch exchanges and their terminals), infrastructure (premises wiring), and their related applications (messaging, contact center, interactive voice response, speech processing) are all poised to benefit from the shift toward next-generation solutions.

A major catalyst for growth in enterprise communications is the emerging migration from time division multiplexing (circuit switched) to Internet Protocol (packet switched) solutions. The majority of global enterprises consider voice over IP as the next-generation solution for their business. Customers are looking at these solutions as key enablers to achieve savings, revenue generation, and business innovation - factors that will allow their businesses to gain a competitive edge.

The Communications Applications subscription empowers vendors, service providers, value-added resellers, system integrators, and end customers to make well-informed decisions to capitalize on existing opportunities in the market. Frost & Sullivan identifies trends, key competitive differentiators, and crucial success factors while providing growth strategies for high-potential segments. Our information is kept current through revisions and constant contact with industry participants, to provide clients with up-to-date trends, insights, and market measurements of the North American and world communications markets. This subscription is delivered electronically via a user-controlled web interface. The various deliverables for this subscription will be distributed each quarter throughout 2003.
