    Strategic opportunity in global telecommunications markets relates to understanding and targeting of high growth market segments. Software update for switches offer value added and increase revenue growth opportunity. High margin opportunities need to be understood. The move to broadband and data communications in the context of telecommunications need to be understood.

    The worldwide need for infrastructure is driving telecommunications markets. As the information age dawns, new technology and the standards brought by the Internet are increasing global communications opportunities. There is a close correlation between a nation’s gross domestic product (GDP) and the penetration of telephone lines. An investment in telecommunication infrastructure by an underdeveloped country often renders a three times or more pay-back in GDP growth. Both developed countries and underdeveloped countries are participating in opportunities presented by the convergence of telecommunications and data communications.

    The enterprise depends on both public and private switches and networks to achieve a regional, national, or global reach. Telecommunications equipment providers are benefiting from business demands for reliable telecommunications services, remote access, and high speed data connectivity. Consumer demand for telecommunications services is also driving demand for equipment. Residential markets represent a growth opportunity for value added services and Internet connectivity.
