For telecom service providers, a new year always brings new challenges and new opportunities. With demand for new services, hot products and innovative solutions ever increasing, which emerging telecom trends will be most critical for service providers in the year ahead?
ACG Research has made its calls on the top telecom trends worth tracking in the networking, device, application and business spaces in 2011. ACG expects growth in the service provider market to be driven by increased spending in areas including enterprise mobility, cloud computing and managed services, as well as carriers' "unrelenting quest to acquire more intelligent services equipment," including high-capacity core routers like Juniper's forthcoming T4000 model.
