Spending on Telecommunications Private Line Services to Hit $40.6 Billion in 2008, Says Insight Research Corporation

Sep 08, 2008, 01:00 ET from INSIGHT Research Corporation

    BOONTON, N.J., Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The $40 billion private line
 services market is posting solid growth for a third straight year, says a
 market analysis study from INSIGHT Research. 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,
 2008-2013", continued growth in the segment will come as a result of the
 strong demand for private lines used to backhaul 3G wireless services from
 cell towers to switching centers, increased demand for local bandwidth
 needed to cache IPTV video services, and most recently, the quickening pace
 of adoption of VoIP by large enterprises that are using private lines to
 link hosted and dedicated VoIP PBX solutions.
     "As a consequence of the industry consolidations, pricing is now
 stable," says INSIGHT president Robert Rosenberg. "And while gigabit
 Ethernet services and pair bonded copper solutions are potent alternative
 technologies, the private line market still has plenty of room to continue
 growing in excess of four percent over our forecast period," Rosenberg
     "Private Line and Wavelength Services 2008-2013" 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 the market share of
 the major providers are also provided.
