European Business Fixed Data Services Forecast, 2018-2022: Drivers and Impact of Transformation
This IDC Market Forecast analyzes the development of the business fixed data services market in Europe with an outlook to 2022, based on IDC's revised fixed data taxonomy that now covers Internet access, private IP, ethernet, legacy data, very high bandwidth, and cloud connectivity. It analyzes key trends, drivers, and inhibitors as well as provides forecasts for connections and spending by type of service, company size, and country/region.
"As the wide area network becomes increasingly mission-critical and is faced with accelerating requirements and much flatter budgets, it will need to evolve into a digital-native network that provides improved flexibility, scalability, manageability, and cost- effectiveness," said Jan Hein Bakkers, senior research manager, IDC. "Hybrid architectures, cloud connectivity, and network virtualization should be at the heart of CSP solutions to address this."
