Service Providers are Facing Snowballing Demand for IP Services as Businesses Seek to Enhance Productivity Through Information Technology

IP/VPN offers the security and policy management of a network, constructed from leased lines, but over a shared, lower-cost environment. These services signify a perfect solution for integrating voice and data traffic to develop productivity at branch offices. The IP/VPN components are representing a tremendous opportunity for service providers to realize new and more substantive revenue streams. The service providers are gaining competitive advantage through customized and manageable IP-VPN services. The customer experiences a private network service that connects its remote sites, even though traffic flows through a shared provider infrastructure.

This service provides greater reliability for the customer and better resource utilization for the service provider. With a greater number of businesses seeking to outsource internet and managed network services, there is an increasing demand for IP/VPN technology.

Outsourcing Networked Business Functions is Growing with More Number of Small and Medium-Sized Organizations Opting for Managed Network Services to Optimize Costs

Businesses are depending on increasingly complex network technology to support internal processes and external relationships with customers. The sophisticated network infrastructure can manufacture resources that could be better devoted to business competencies. Many companies are focusing on outsourcing some or all of their network functions to service providers. Organizations are discovering that outsourcing can help achieve significant revenue benefits, increase flexibility, and agility, and provide access to networking, security, and communication. Among small and medium-sized businesses, improving operational efficiency is a very large benefit of out-tasking. Large organizations are the potential managed network services vendors. Even for large enterprises with geographically-dispersed locations, the managed network services are the best-fit or the most cost-effective solution.
