2015 Telecom Scenario
AUSTIN, Texas, March 2002-Technology Futures, Inc., an internationally-recognized leader in telecom forecasting, announces the publication of a new report entitled The Local Exchange Network in 2015, authored by Lawrence K. Vanston (President, TFI). This report gives forecasts for 2015 for broadband data rates, the impact of wireless, and the North America local exchange network. The research was sponsored by the Telecommunications Technology Forecasting Group (TTFG), a consortium of telephone companies comprised of Bell Canada, BellSouth, Qwest, SBC Corporation, Sprint, and Verizon.
According to author, Lawrence Vanston, "With the ups and downs of the telecom industry, it's easy to lose one's long-term vision. This study provides a view of the future stripped clean of short-term transition issues. Unless things go badly wrong, ILECs will have largely completed the transition to a packet-switched, broadband, optical network by 2015." He continues, "Although the pace of this transformation may disappoint many, it will be truly immense, providing tremendous opportunities across industries and wonderful benefits to consumers. We hope this report will help people refocus their thinking about the future of telecommunications."
