The article discusses information regarding "Business Communications Review's" readership. According to a survey given to subscribers, readers whose organizations use Internet protocol-virtual private networks (IP-VPN) most commonly use their own customer premise equipment-based IP-VPN. The survey found that this method was favored over the second-most used IP-VPN service, Carrier-provided multiprotocol label switching-based IP-VPN service by a margin of almost two to one. Among those utilizing Ethernet services, Ethernet delivered over fiber optic lines is most common, followed by Ethernet over synchronous optical network technologies.
