>(NEWSdesk) -- 8th January, 1999 -- By 2005 Ovum predicts there will be a
>fundamental shift for telcos' main business to the operation of packet-
>switched communications networks.  This shift will be fuelled by the
>transition to, and extensive growth of, IP (Internet Protocol)*.  The
>running of data networks will become the key concern for telcos, leaving
>their old position of being primary operators of circuit-switched
>networks lagging behind.  These findings come in the second part of
>Ovum's report, IP: the Impact on Telco Services and Revenues.
>
>According to Susan Sweet, senior consultant at Ovum and lead author on
>the report, "Packet-switching, originally designed for non-real time
>transmission of data, is now becoming suitable for transmitting real-
>time traffic types - including voice and video.  It has therefore become
>possible to conceive a telco network based on infrastructure and
>protocols which are capable of carrying the full ranges of service types
>from basic email, through voice, fax and data transport, up to full
>real-time  videoconferencing." *Ovum defines IP as the network layer
>protocol which is most widely used in network interconnect applications.
>IP, the foundation protocol for the Internet , was designed &
>administered by the IETF
>
>"As IP becomes the basis for wide-area corporate communications, so the
>pressure from corporate customers will grow on telcos to adopt IP in
>their backbone.  Pressure will also grow as a result of application
>development.  Unified messaging, Web-enabled call centres and e-commerce
>are three such applications which will be of major importance for 2000.
>Their uptake will increase the demand from corporate customers for
>telcos to adopt IP in their networks," adds Sweet.
>
>Ovum predicts that the worldwide IP market will be worth $60 billion by
>2005 with the largest regional market being North America, worth $29
>billion by 2005, followed by Western Europe, worth $13.5 billion by
>2005.  The main factors driving this growth are:
>
>*  Growing adoption of IP in enterprise WANs, driven by the ability to
>integrate application traffic and by the rise of the Internet;
>*  New applications integrating voice, data and/or multimedia which need
>voice over IP in order to implemented;
>*  More efficient use of capacity.
>
>Sweet concludes, "The most rapid growth for IP will be after year 2000
>because private networks will introduce IP technology more aggressively
>than public networks.  Also, due to their dominance of the fax and voice
>market, access network operators will be the largest public network
>users of IP.  Mobile operators will use IP networks least up to 2005,
>but the main applications will be unified messaging and synchronisation
>applications that allow mobile users to update information quickly and
>easily."
>
>About the report
>
>IP: the Impact on Telco Services and Revenues comprises two reports
>written by Richard Kee, Stewart Anderton & Susan Sweet and is available
>immediately from Ovum costing GBP2495 in Europe.  The reports assess
>development for IP services and help telcos to develop a successful
>strategy maximising opportunity and minimising threats from IP telecoms
>services.  For more product information contact Ovum on Tel: +44 171 312
