Research Report: Optical Networking, Wireless Networking, and the Role of Redundancy and Recovery in Financial Transactions, 2013-2017

Insight Research CorporationMOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — According to a market analysis report announced this month from INSIGHT Research, “The global financial services industry is expected to spend just over one trillion dollars over the next five years on telecommunications services and equipment.” According to the new market study, spending on telecommunications by Wall Street companies, banks, insurance companies and others in the global financial sector is expected increase at compounded rate of 9.9 percent, growing from $135 billion in 2012 to $217 billion in 2017.

“It is difficult to over-estimate the impact that the financial services sector has had on the telecom industry, since this is the sector that has always been ready to spend to get the best,” says Insight Research President Robert Rosenberg.

The new report: “Telecom and the Financial Services Industry: Optical Networking, Wireless Networking, and the Role of Redundancy and Recovery in Financial Transactions, 2013-2017″ notes that the financial ecosystem encompasses a broad range of applications, from simple smartphone mobile transactions to complex international financial trading networks. This sector is made up of Wall Street investment companies, banks, insurance companies, and other financial institutions that have been at the forefront in pushing for the development of telecommunications systems and practices that ensure accuracy, reliability, and security.

“This sector consumes practically everything that telecom companies can offer, including: hardware, applications, connectivity, managed services, hosting services, disaster recovery, security management, backup and storage management, storage area networks-not to mention their huge appetite for wireless and wireline connectivity. The financial sector is global and fully interconnected, and that shows up on the bottom line of the carriers in a big, big way,” Rosenberg concluded.

“Telecom and the Financial Services Industry” provides revenue forecasts by type of connectivity (wireless or wireline), by telecom equipment type, by sub-sector application type (banking, stock brokering, mobile banking and trading, mobile proximity, mobile funds transfer), and by stakeholder type. Individual breakouts are organized by global region: North America; Europe, Mid-East, Africa; Asia-Pacific; and the Caribbean and Latin America.

Market Research: Telecommunications and Capital Investments: Impacts of the Financial Crisis on Worldwide Telecommunications, 2012-2017

Insight Research CorporationMOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — According to a new market research and analysis report from The Insight Research Corporation: Capital expenditures (capex) by telecommunications service providers globally is expected to increase at a compounded rate of 1.5 percent, from $207 billion in 2012 to $223.3 billion in 2017.

According to the new market research study, capex in the various global regions will be very uneven, with North America, Europe and the Latin American-Caribbean regions showing little or no growth and only Asia-Pacific and Africa continuing to make investments in telecommunications hardware and software to keep up with burgeoning customer demand for new services.

“Telecommunications and Capital Investments: Impacts of the Financial Crisis on Worldwide Telecommunications, 2012-2017″ notes that capex spending among fixed-line operators continues to decline, and the only growth in capex spending comes from the mobile operators in developing countries that continue increase their capital outlays to meet the pent up demand for service. And while demand for telecommunications services may be income inelastic and industry revenue may actually grow over the forecast period, services in every global region will nonetheless come under heavy pricing pressure as operators fight over the cost-conscious customers quite willing to delay new device purchases.

“Customers in every region are pinching pennies and the demand for advanced applications is uncertain. The confluence of these trends means a further erosion of operator margins, which in turn will affect investments into infrastructures and new technologies since funding is now more difficult to obtain,” says INSIGHT Research President Robert Rosenberg. “The difficulty in finding funding now faced by many operators will certainly slow down, if not derail, the rolling out of investments in NGNs, WiMAX, LTE, or converged services,” Rosenberg concluded.

Capital spending forecasts are provided for the U.S., Canada, UK, Germany, France, Japan, China, and India. On a per country basis, capex spending is provided for fixed lines, mobile, and broadband. Forecasts are also provided for capex allocation by equipment; plant; software licenses; and the category “other.”

Market Research Report: Carriers and Ethernet Services: Public Ethernet in Metro & Wide Area Networks, 2012-2017

Insight Research CorporationMOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — According to a new Market Research Report from Insight Research, U.S. enterprises and consumers are expected to spend more than $47 billion over the next five years on Ethernet services provided by carriers. According to INSIGHT Research’s market analysis study, “Carriers and Ethernet Services: Public Ethernet in Metro & Wide Area Networks, 2012-2017,” Ethernet’s central driver continues to be its ability to meet seemingly endlessly growing bandwidth demands at lower cost and with greater flexibility than competing services.

A major growth driver in years past had been the large-scale migration of wireless backhaul cell sites from TDM to Ethernet, and though still a contributory growth factor, backhaul growth will start to moderate as LTE deployments are completed.

With metro-area and wide-area Ethernet services readily available from virtually all major data service providers, industry revenue is expected to grow from nearly $5 billion in 2012 to reach just over $11 billion by 2017. However, year over year spending growth is expected to gradually stall and by 2017 the annual revenue growth rate will be half of what it is today.

“Wireless backhaul had been a major factor in this fast-growing telecommunications services sector, but with much of the conversion of TDM to Ethernet completed, we are forecasting that spending on Ethernet will moderate,” says Robert Rosenberg, president of INSIGHT Research. “Over the five year forecast period we project a compounded annual revenue growth rate of 17 percent, with growth slowing by 2016 to be more in the range of 12 to 15 percent,” Rosenberg concluded.

The study examines Ethernet market spending and usage patterns by topology (E-line, E-LAN, and access), regional domain (metro, wide-area, and access), retail/wholesale, and various bandwidth levels.

Market Research: Carriers and Ethernet Services: Public Ethernet in Metro & Wide Area Networks, 2011-2016

MOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — According to a new report from Insight Research, U.S. enterprises and consumers are expected to spend more than $44 billion over the next five years on Ethernet services provided by carriers. According to the new market research study: With metro-area and wide-area Ethernet services readily available from virtually all major data service providers, the market is expected to grow from $4.0 billion in 2011 to reach nearly $11.1 billion by 2016.

According to Insight Research’s market analysis study, “Carriers and Ethernet Services: Public Ethernet in Metro & Wide Area Networks, 2011-2016,” Ethernet’s central driver continues to be its ability to meet seemingly endlessly growing bandwidth demands at lower cost and with greater flexibility than competing services. While the emergence of new high-bandwidth 40- and 100- Gigabit/s services is proceeding slowly, due largely to high current equipment prices, these will become increasingly important during the 2011-2016 forecast period.

Ethernet services are marketed under various names: transparent or native LAN, Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, GigE, metro Ethernet, Ethernet private line, Ethernet virtual private line, Layer 2 virtual private network, Ethernet access, and virtual private LAN service.

“Wireless backhaul is the fastest-growing sector within the Ethernet marketplace,” says Robert Rosenberg, president of Insight Research. “Ethernet can provide the necessary backhaul at lower unit costs and with greater flexibility than the older technology. The market continues to be paced by voracious bandwidth demands from its longstanding key verticals such as finance, schools, government and healthcare-whose data transmission requirements continue to grow rapidly,” Rosenberg concluded.

“Carriers and Ethernet Services: Public Ethernet in Metro & Wide Area Networks, 2011-2016″ examines carrier Ethernet market spending and usage patterns by topology (E-line, E-LAN, and access), regional domain (metro, wide-area, and access), retail/wholesale, and various bandwidth levels.

Market Research: Web 2.0, Mobility and Fixed Line Applications – The Revolution in New Applications Development, 2011-2016

MOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — According to Insight Research’s market analysis study, “Web 2.0, Mobility and Fixed Line Applications: The Revolution in New Applications Development, 2011-2016,” REST, AJAX, and widgets are the important technologies underpinning the new applications development environment; however, the most important aspect of Web 2.0 is its business approach.

In 2011, telecommunications carriers and third-party software developers worldwide are expected to generate just over $35 billion in new revenue by helping build and deploy Web 2.0 services, according to a new market research study from The Insight Research Corporation.

The term Web 2.0 is shorthand for a rapid deployment service paradigm used to create new applications for downloading to smartphones, applications that that run inside the service provider’s network to provide enhanced services, and applications built outside the service providers’ networks using APIs exposed by the service provider to couple their capabilities to other new applications.

Those deploying Web 2.0 services assume that their applications are built to be combined, with exposed interfaces that facilitate this, and a strategy of encouraging third party developers to combine these pieces into new applications that will benefit the end user.

“After more than 20 years of false starts with the IN, Parlay, and IMS architectures, along comes Web 2.0 and carriers finally have an architecture-independent software that developers are embracing. This architecture quickens the pace of new applications deployment and thereby boosts network usage, so we think carriers will soon be lining up to support Web 2.0,” says Robert Rosenberg, Insight Research.

“With a projected compounded annual growth rate of 30 percent and with new revenue opportunities for mobile operators, fixed line operators, VoIP providers and the apps developers themselves, we see opportunities for all to get a slice of the pie,” Rosenberg concluded.

Market Research: Open Source Software Impacts on Telecom Services, 2011-2016

BOONTON, N.J. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — Open source software – software that is available in compiled and source code formats and is downloadable free of charge over the Internet – is quietly being adopted by telecommunications carriers for use in their internal operational systems as well as in their customer-facing service delivery platforms, says a new market analysis study from Insight Research Corp. The market analysis study, “Open Source Software Impacts on Telecom Services, 2011-2016″ notes that carriers adopting open source can more quickly deploy new services at lower development costs since the code is improved upon and supported by a large pool of software talent, at little or no cost.

The main disadvantages include the risk of using software that infringes intellectual property rights, and using the software outside the terms of the software’s license.

By quickening the time to market for new services, open source software has already had a profound impact on the telecommunications industry, and while such impacts are not being trumpeted loudly in the trade press or being discussed openly by the carriers, they are nonetheless real.

“Purchasing traditional commercial proprietary software to implement new service platforms typically means high initial costs and greater on-going support costs, less flexibility, and operating within a closed architecture,” says Robert Rosenberg, Insight Research Corp. President. “Open source revolves around a community of developers and users that keep open source software alive and fresh because the community keeps evolving the code, and this kind of continuous attention really shortens a new product development cycle,” Rosenberg concluded.

“Open Source Software Impacts on Telecom Services, 2011-2016″ segments the markets by U.S. as well as global region for OSS/BSS functions including network management, CRM, trouble management, and billing. Forecasts are also provided for spending on IP equipment software loads. Professional services and support services revenues related to OSS/BSS functions are also forecast.

Market Research: Managed Services in an IP World – New Opportunities for Wireless and Wired Networks 2010-2015

MOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — A new market study from Insight Research Corp. predicts that while U.S. business spending on wireline telecommunications services are expected to grow in low single-digit percentages over the next five years, spending on managed services is expected to grow at a compounded rate of 12 percent over the period.

“Make no mistakes about it, while telecom is faring better than many other segments of the economy, anemic growth in the overall economy required that we adjust our annual managed services forecasts downward,” says Robert Rosenberg, Insight’s president.

The market research report notes that the present recession may actually act to spur spending in the telecommunications and IT market segments, since many enterprises will find that purchasing managed services from third-party providers is a cost-effective alternative to increasing internal staffing. The spending study predicts that revenues associated with the managed services market will grow from nearly $29 billion in 2010 to $47 billion in 2015.

Insight’s newly-released market analysis report, “Managed Services in an IP World: New Opportunities for Wireless and Wired Networks 2010-2015,” contends that carriers, service providers, IT equipment vendors, systems integrators, and specialist companies will all participate in the growth opportunities provided by this market.

The study differentiates and forecasts five managed service segments: managed data center services, managed infrastructure, managed LAN services, managed WAN services and managed mobility services. In addition to the revenue forecasts for these market segments, forecasts are provided for various market subdivisions, including managed IP VPNs, managed security services, managed VoIP, LAN extensions, WLAN extensions, managed cellular services, and a number of other significant areas within the managed services domain.

The report also provides Insight’s survey of outsourced managed LAN, managed WAN, and disaster recovery management services by vertical industry.

“Little or no job growth is a silver lining for the managed services providers, since enterprise IT and telecom managers will be much more willing to listen to the economic logic of outsourcing now that internal staffing is contracting,” Rosenberg concluded.

Market Research: Telecom Services in Vertical Markets, 2010-2015

MOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — Despite a sluggish economy and little or no hiring in many industries, the US telecommunications industry revenue prospects appear bright with total spending by all US businesses on telecommunications services forecasted to exhibit double-digit growth over the next five years, says a new market research report from Insight Research. Insight estimates that all US businesses spent $146 billion for telecommunications services at the end of 2010 and spending on wired and cellular calling will grow to $269 billion by the close of 2015, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13 percent over the forecast period.

Insight’s newly released market analysis report, “Telecom Services in Vertical Markets, 2010-2015″ found that business spending for cellular and other wireless services is creating all of the growth. While all US business spending for wireline services is essentially flat over the five year forecast horizon, wireless expenditures are expected to grow at a compounded rate of 23.5 percent over the period of 2010-2015.

The biggest spenders on cellular services will come from four market segments: construction; financial, insurance, and real estate; professional business services; and transportation. The study analyzes 14 vertical industries categorized by the NAICS, and focuses on corporate spending for wireline and wireless telecommunications services in each of the 14 industries.

“The year 2010 – like 2009 – was all about a shaky economy, unemployment hovering at 10 percent, and retrenchment in every industry sector we examined,” says Robert Rosenberg, President of Insight.

“With no new business formations and fewer employees in existing businesses, growth in demand for telecom services is coming from wireless, because wireless services tend to make existing employees more productive and gives businesses new ways to reach potential customers,” Rosenberg concludes.

Market Research: Revenue Growth for Cable System Operators Hinges on Pushing Telecom Services into Businesses

MOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — Over the next five years, the U.S. cable TV industry is expected to generate nearly $700 million in new revenue by providing telecommunications services to small, medium and large enterprises, according to a new market research study from The Insight Research Corporation. While this new revenue stream appears substantial, it is only a tiny fraction of the $130 billion spent annually by businesses on telecommunications services.

Insight Research’s market analysis study, “Cable TV Operators, Telecom Services, and the Push into the Enterprise 2010-2015″ points out that the residential market, the stronghold on the cable TV industry, is actually the smallest segment of the U.S. telecommunications market with annual revenue of $65 billion. Commercial services are far and away the largest segment with annual revenue of $130 billion, wireless represents $75 billion in annual revenue, and video, which only recently is being counted as a segment of the telecommunications business, represents a $70 billion annual revenue opportunity.

“While their legacy has been in providing services to residential markets, the greatest opportunity ahead for the cable TV industry lies in grabbing share in the enterprise segment and providing telecom services to over 7 million potential business locations throughout the U.S.,” says Robert Rosenberg, Insight Research.

“Our study suggests that continued cable industry consolidation will actually strengthen their ability to compete as larger systems with broader footprints, uniform services, and improved performance match the capabilities the telco have long provided,” Rosenberg concluded.

“Cable TV Operators, Telecom Services, and the Push into the Enterprise 2010-2015″ segments revenue estimates for telco and cable operators providing basic voice, data, and video services offered to the small, medium and large enterprise business segments. Detailed revenue estimates are provided for DOCSIS-based services, Ethernet, private lines, voice services, Web hosting, optical transport, and video.

Market Research: US Hispanics Will Spend $257B on Telecom Services over the Next Five Years

BOONTON, N.J. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — Over the next five years, US Hispanic communities will spend $257 billion on telecommunications services, accounting for 17 percent of all residential telecom expenditures, according to a new market research study from The Insight Research Corporation. Early analysis of Census 2010 data suggests that Hispanics will surpass the 50 million mark and that they will command over $1 trillion in buying power. Hispanics are the youngest race/ethnicity segment and, more importantly, have the largest percentage of people under the age of 18, a market demographic that the study says will be crucial to the survival of telecommunications providers over the next five years.

Insight Research’s market analysis study, “US Hispanic Use of Telecommunications Services 2010-2015,” takes a close look at the purchasing habits and telecommunications usage patterns of the Hispanic segment of the US population, as well as other ethnic communities in the US. The study emphasizes that the US Latino market tends to over-index in mobile content and also notes that US Hispanics are accessing the Internet through more and varied devices than non-Hispanics.

“If the future of mobile carriers depends on their getting consumers to buy their data plans, then the US Hispanic community is right in the sweet spot, and will be receiving increasing attention from both wireline and wireless carriers’ marketing departments,” says Robert Rosenberg, Insight Research. “Our study demonstrates that Hispanics are one of the most social groups online, and given the youth-orientated demographic of the US Hispanic community, they become a prime target for the newer 3G and 4G cellular services,” Rosenberg concluded.

“US Hispanic Use of Telecommunication Services 2010-2015″ examines spending and usage patterns of US Hispanics for wireline, cellular, and pre-paid cellular services, and compares these spending patterns to those of the general population as well as other minority segments, including Asian-Americans and African-Americans.

Market Research: Enterprise Spending on Carrier Ethernet Services Will Top $37B Over 5 Years

BOONTON, N.J. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — US enterprises and consumers are expected to spend more than $37 billion over the next five years on Ethernet services provided by carriers, according to a new market research study from The Insight Research Corporation. With metro-area and wide-area Ethernet services readily available from virtually all major data service providers, the market is expected to grow at a compounded rate of almost 25 percent, increasing from $3.1 billion in 2010 to reach nearly $9.7 billion by 2015.

According to Insight Research’s market analysis study, “Carriers and Ethernet Services: Public Ethernet in Metro & Wide Area Networks, 2010-2015,” the economic recession that emerged in late 2008 has not dampened US enterprises appetite for Ethernet service. Insight is projecting the surge in demand will peak by 2011 as the economy improves Ethernet revenue growth rates hit 29 percent on a compounded annual basis. Ethernet services are marketed under various names: transparent or native LAN, Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, GigE, metro Ethernet, Ethernet private line, Ethernet virtual private line, Layer 2 virtual private network, Ethernet access, and virtual private LAN service.

“The momentum behind retail sales of Ethernet services to the enterprise is being driven by the customer’s steadily increasing demand for data bandwidth and Ethernet’s real cost advantages in terms of providing flexible bandwidth and scalability that is superior to many competitive services,” says Robert Rosenberg, president of Insight Research. “The driving force behind wholesale Ethernet sales is improved interoperability among carriers, greater confidence in emerging and recently adopted standards, as well as shifts by more carriers to a more wholesale-friendly posture,” Rosenberg concluded.

“Carriers and Ethernet Services: Public Ethernet in Metro & Wide Area Networks, 2010-2015″ examines carrier Ethernet market spending and usage patterns by topology (E-line, E-LAN, and access), regional domain (metro, wide-area, and access), retail/wholesale, and various bandwidth levels.

Market Research: Business Telecom Spending to Hit $146 Billion in 2010

BOONTON, N.J. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — Despite slowdowns and spending cuts in many industries, overall spending by all U.S. businesses on wired and cellular calling is forecasted to exhibit modest growth over the next five years, says a new market research report from Insight Research (www.insight-corp.com). The study predicts that cellular calling will account for nearly 44 percent of the U.S. corporate phone bill for telecommunication services in 2010, and is the only enterprise market segment showing substantial growth.

Insight’s newly released market analysis report, “Telecom Services in Vertical Markets, 2009-2014″ reveals that wireless service revenues are expected to grow at a compounded rate of nearly 18.4 percent annually from 2009 to 2014, while growth in wired services remains essentially flat. The biggest spenders on cellular services will come from four market segments: construction; financial, insurance, and real estate; professional business services; and transportation.

The study analyzes 14 vertical industries categorized by the NAICS, and focuses on corporate spending for wireline and wireless telecommunications services in each of the 14 industries.

“The year 2009 was all about cut backs and retrenchment in every industry sector we examined,” says Robert Rosenberg, President of Insight.

“However, it is continued demand for wireless services that will keep the telecom industry in the black over the next five years-and that demand is going to be uneven across the various business sectors,” Rosenberg concludes.

Market Research: Telecom Private Line Services Revenue to Decline through 2012

BOONTON, N.J. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — After years of steady growth, the $34 billion private line services market is entering a period of declining revenue, says a market analysis study from Insight Research Corp. Private lines are point-to-point circuits leased by enterprises from telecommunications carriers in order to link enterprise sites to each other and to the Internet. Private lines are also used by cellular carriers to link their towers to land line networks.

According to Insight’s report, “Private Line and Wavelength Services, 2009-2014,” the transition from frame relay/ATM networking to IP networks will put a drag on private line revenue growth for several years. Revenue from frame relay/ATM legacy services have been counted as private lines since they provide dedicated transport between locations. Enterprise customers are migrating away from legacy services to IP networks because, bit for bit, IP is priced lower. Private line revenue is thus taking a hit.

“The transition away from frame and ATM will put a break on overall private line industry revenue growth for a couple of years,” says Insight president Robert Rosenberg.

“However, private line demand remains strong for wireless backhaul, local bandwidth for caching IPTV video services, and for facilitating VoIP. These are the growth areas for private line, and will be in the years ahead. The transition away from frame and ATM is a temporary blip, and we expect to see overall growth return to the private line sector by 2013,” Rosenberg concluded.

“Private Line and Wavelength Services 2009-2014″ evaluates the total private line market and segments it by local and long distance private line service revenue, wholesale and retail private line revenue, revenue by type of carrier, revenue by T1, T3 or OC-n circuit class, as well as the number of T1, T3, and OC-n private lines sold. Estimates of wavelength revenues are also provided.

Market Research: Worldwide Telecom Industry Growing at Double Digit Rate Despite Current Economic Turmoil

BOONTON, N.J. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — Despite the unsteady state of the global financial markets, the worldwide telecommunications industry is expected to continue expanding over the next five years as growth of wireless services in emerging markets offsets the spending slowdown in the advanced economies, says a new market analysis report from The Insight Research Corporation. According to the new industry market study, overall telecommunications services revenues are expected to grow at a compounded rate of nearly 13.8 percent over the next few years, reaching $3.7 trillion by 2015.

“The 2010 Telecommunications Industry Review: An Anthology of Market Facts and Forecasts” notes that wireless makes the strongest showing while wireline follows a distant second. Nearly all of the growth in both sectors is expected to occur in broadband services, with wireless broadband service revenues expected to grow at a compounded rate of more than 62 percent over the forecast period, while wireline broadband services grow at a six percent rate over the same forecast horizon.

“The 2010 Telecommunications Industry Review: An Anthology of Market Facts and Forecasts” states that even amidst the current economic uncertainty the fact remains that telecommunications is a key input factor in economic growth. Telecommunications is a facilitator of socio-economic advancement and is a critical utility for economic development, much like water and energy. It is on the basis of telecommunications as a lynchpin in the eventual economic recovery that Insight Research projects continued carrier revenue growth.

“While there are indications that the worst of the economic turmoil is past, job creation still remains elusive. Yet even amidst the uncertainty, we expect the telecommunications industry to continue growing,” says Insight president Robert Rosenberg. “Telecom is as necessary to development as roads and bridges, so we expect it to fare much better than other economic segments that may take longer to return to normalcy,” Rosenberg concluded.

Market Research: Stimulus Spending Won’t Help 49 Percent of US Rural and Urban Households Currently without Broadband

BOONTON, N.J. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — Analysis of most recent FCC data (Jan. 2008) reveals that about 45 million of the more than 117 million US households have no Internet service and when “no Internet” households are added to those households using dial-up to reach the Internet, the number of non-broadband households approaches 58 million, according to a new market research study from The Insight Research Corporation. These 58 million non-broadband households represent 49 percent of the households in the U.S.

Insight ResearchAccording to Insight Research’s market analysis study, “Rural Versus Urban Telecommunications in the U.S.: Changes in Markets and Technologies, 2009-2014,” projecting the FCC 2008 data to year-end 2009 and taking into account further broadband penetrations it is estimated that 40 million households will still lack broadband access at the close of 2014.

Current Federal Stimulus spending of $6.4 billion would allow for an investment of $164 per household to provide broadband access to the non-broadband households. The availability of such a small investment amount per household casts serious doubt that any significant expansion of broadband access will result from this government action. This position is further bolstered by the argument that, at the current estimate of $1,500 per household, at least $60 billion would be needed to deploy universal broadband access.

“Certainly the current administration recognizes the direct relationship between extending broadband access to all Americans and the future health of our economy, but the current allocation of funds is just not going to get the job done,” says Robert Rosenberg, President, Insight Research.

“Our analysis found that a substantial portion of the 49 percent without broadband had no computers in their homes. There is a chicken and egg problem here that needs to be considered by our policy makers,” Rosenberg concluded.

BOONTON, N.J. /Advertising Industry Newswire/ — The hospitals, physicians, pharmaceutical companies, and insurance providers that make up the 2.6 trillion US healthcare system will be spending $55.5 billion on telecommunications services over the next five years, says a new market research study released by the Insight Research Corporation (www.insight-corp.com). According to the market analysis study, spending by the US healthcare industry on telecommunications services will grow at a compounded rate of 10.2 percent over the forecast period, increasing from $7.1 billion in 2009 to $11.6 billion in 2014 as the number of healthcare locations expands by 14 percent and the healthcare employment rate increases 2.5 times faster the total national employment rate. Both employment locations and employee numbers are primary indicators of telecommunications expenditures.

Insight Research studyAccording to the report, “Telecommunications, IT, and Healthcare: Wireless Networks, Digital Healthcare and the Transformation of US Healthcare, 2009-2014,” forces external to the healthcare industry, including a Congressional push to rein in US healthcare costs, an aging population, and worker shortages are encouraging the industry to find alternative approaches to current business practices.

Much of the high costs inherent in the current system are related to the proximity of the patient and provider, as well as to the archaic administrative systems used to manage records and exchange information. Telecommunications can bridge these proximity gaps as well as provide a normalized set of baseline data that remains secure yet can be shared among healthcare workers.

“Since our last healthcare industry study, we updated our five-year forecasts to reflect current recessionary spending,” says Insight Research president Robert Rosenberg. “Specifically our forecast was reduced by approximately $500 million in 2008 and $1 billion in 2009 to reflect the recession’s impacts. However, long-term we expect spending on telecommunications for healthcare to approach the levels in our previous forecasts, as consumers continue to spend more of their income on healthcare services,” Rosenberg concluded.
