ABSTRACT
This article focuses on developments in newer technologies. Carrier data networks will increasingly run over IP/MPLS and Ethernet, while frame relay and ATM networks continue to grow, albeit at a much slower rate than the newer technologies. The future for IP/MPLS continues to shine brightly, especially as IP traffic continues to grow strongly, with broadband and IP-VPN traffic underlying the growth. Infonetics found that the major drivers for IP traffic growth were, in order, broadband Internet, IP-VPNs and VOIP. Infonetics interviewed 26 earners in North America, Europe and Asia.
