E-Access to Dedicated IP/MPLS VPNs Drives Revenue

Ethernet accounts for 36% of high speed VPN access connections in the U.S.

Ethernet access or “E-Access” services connect 36% of high speed Dedicated IP/MPLS VPN sites in the U.S., according to new research from Vertical Systems Group. Market demand for access connectivity at 2 Mbps and above is projected to drive revenue growth for Dedicated IP/MPLS VPNs through 2015. This latest analysis is based on research covering VPN speed segments ranging up to 100 Mbps and above.

“E-Access to IP/MPLS VPN services are gaining momentum as business customers migrate to higher bandwidth connectivity solutions,” said Erin Dunne, director of research services at Vertical Systems Group. “Availability is a key purchase decision factor, and notably this capability is supported by every provider with a position on Vertical’s Mid-2011 Global Provider Ethernet Leaderboard, and six of the nine providers on the Mid-2011 U.S. Ethernet Leaderboard.”
