Stabilizing Political and Economical Environment Boost Data Communications Services Market in Colombia

PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- With an increasingly stable economical and political environment in the country and the promise of new technologies, the data communications services market in Colombia offers great opportunities for investors to turn a profit. The market has matured over the past decade owing to the growing communication needs of corporates and the intense activity of service providers in terms of solutions releases.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.telecom.frost.com/ ), Colombia Data Communications Services Markets, reveals that revenues in this market totaled $234.6 million in 2004 and can reach $386.9 million in 2008.

If you are interested in a virtual brochure, which provides manufacturers, end users, and other industry participants an overview of the latest analysis of the Colombia Data Communications Services Markets, then send an e-mail to Mireya Castilla, Corporate Communications, at [email protected] , with your full name, company name, title, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, city, state, and country. Upon receipt of the above information, an overview will be sent to you by e-mail.

The Colombian Government remains a key partner in improving the booming environment for investment in the country. It consistently implements security policies to stabilize democracy in the country, thereby guaranteeing a good setting for data communications services market growth.

"Government deregulation plans in the telecom industry are encouraging the launch of a large number of companies focused on providing value-added services," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Manager Romina Adduci. "Integration between information technology (IT) and telecommunications has been strengthened by legislation, thereby motivating the entrance of regional and international participants from related industries into the data communications services market."

This has also heightened competition and forced companies to lower costs. Although cost-effective services have favored end users, they have resulted in restricting revenue growth. To increase profits, the Colombian market has to focus on stimulating sustainable growth through providing product differentiation, thus avoiding equivalent offerings that lead to price wars.

Increasing real-time business communications between headquarters and remote offices is fueling an uptake of data communications network solutions in multinational and large local companies. Service providers need regional coverage and flexible invoicing to benefit from these geographical trends. Offering customized value-added services is a must to keep up demand since market penetration has reached saturation levels in these companies.

In addition, the huge Colombian public segment, composed of Government agencies with the need for vast frame relay layout to configure point-to- point/multi-point connections, will be responsible for shaping future market growth. Growth in this segment remains sensitive to internal political turmoil and elections.

"Internet Protocol is the core offering and the leading service in the data communications services market, catering to lower-end businesses because of its cost effectiveness and easy deployment," says Adduci. "It is likely to replace asynchronous transfer mode (ATM), especially in customers with increasing bandwidth requirements."

ATM, X.25, and leased lines are experiencing slow growth since they are mature technologies at an advanced stage of development. However, ATM can handle large amounts of traffic flows, integrate voice, data and video applications, and hence consolidate as a core provider network infrastructure.

Dedicated lines are likely to maintain a specific market niche, especially in industry segments most sensitive to security concerns. Medium-level business segments will increase demand for frame relay services, especially in the industrial, insurance, financial, oil, gas, and energy sectors.

Colombia Data Communications Services Markets is part of the 9736 subscription. It evaluates the use of data communications services such as X.25, ATM, frame relay, dedicated lines, and IP. Executive summaries and analyst interviews are available to the press.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
You think you know what’s in your data. But do you? Most organizations are now aware of the business intelligence represented by their data. Data science stands to take this to a level you never thought of – literally. The techniques of data science, when used with the capabilities of Big Data technologies, can make connections you had not yet imagined, helping you discover new insights and ask new questions of your data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sarbjit Sarkaria, data science team lead ...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
WebRTC is bringing significant change to the communications landscape that will bridge the worlds of web and telephony, making the Internet the new standard for communications. Cloud9 took the road less traveled and used WebRTC to create a downloadable enterprise-grade communications platform that is changing the communication dynamic in the financial sector. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Leo Papadopoulos, CTO of Cloud9, discussed the importance of WebRTC and how it enables companies to focus o...
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
