BOONTON, N.J. - Dec. 19 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The US public Ethernet services market is expected to grow from $940 million in 2006 to over $5 billion in 2012, according to a new market research study from The Insight Research Corporation. With metro-area Ethernet services now available from virtually all major data service providers and wide-area Ethernet about to get a shot in the arm from the dominant carriers, the market is poised to take off.

According to Insight Research's market analysis study, "Public Ethernet Services 2007-2012," the term "public Ethernet" refers to any Layer 2 public network carrier service that extends Ethernet beyond the LAN and connects to customers through Ethernet interfaces. Public Ethernet may be marketed as transparent or native LAN, Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, GigE, metro Ethernet, Ethernet private line (EPL), Ethernet virtual private line (EVPL), Layer 2 virtual private network (VPN), Ethernet access, virtual private LAN service (VPLS), or a variety of other names.

Until recently, public Ethernet services were generally referred to as "metro Ethernet" and the largest portion of sales had been between points within a metropolitan area. This is expected to change in 2007, however, as major incumbents-particularly AT&T and Verizon-introduce long-haul Layer 2 VPNs.

"Insight's research suggests that the many-to-many E-LAN service will be the fastest growing part of public Ethernet because the economic advantages of Ethernet actually increase exponentially (as opposed to proportionally) in relation to the number of points connected," says Robert Rosenberg, president of Insight Research. "And though we expect to see an accelerating pace of Ethernet adoption across the board, we are not ready to predict that Ethernet is ready to 'take over the world.' Generally speaking, private line and frame relay customers are not ready to or interested in deserting longstanding services, so the migration to Ethernet is going to be slow and steady," Rosenberg concluded.

"Public Ethernet Services 2007-2012" examines public Ethernet market spending and usage patterns by topology (E-line, E-LAN, and access), regional domain (metro, wide-area, and access), retail/wholesale, and various bandwidth levels.

Internet-Enabled Consumer Telecom Services Will Generate $265 Billion Over Five Years, says Insight Research

Author: The Insight Research Corporation
Dateline: Mon, 30 Oct 2006

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “BOONTON, N.J. - Oct. 30 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- A wide array of new Internet-enabled communications services geared to the needs of consumers is expected to generate nearly $265 billion for phone companies and other telecommunications carriers worldwide over the next five years, according to a new market research study from The Insight Research Corporation. These new Internet-enabled services include: residential video telephony; fixed-mobile convergence; file sharing services; streaming services; location-based services; and presence-based services.”

BOONTON, N.J. - Oct. 30 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- A wide array of new Internet-enabled communications services geared to the needs of consumers is expected to generate nearly $265 billion for phone companies and other telecommunications carriers worldwide over the next five years, according to a new market research study from The Insight Research Corporation. These new Internet-enabled services include: residential video telephony; fixed-mobile convergence; file sharing services; streaming services; location-based services; and presence-based services.

Send2Press photowireInsight Research's market analysis study, entitled "IP-Based Application Services Market 2006-2011," notes that wireless and mobile telecommunications carriers seem to be making the most headway when it comes to offering these new services, mainly because they tend to have greatest amount of control over the content in their networks as well as more flexible billing platforms. Wireline carriers expect operational and infrastructure savings by deploying the new IP-based services, and are initially choosing to rollout the new services as an overlay on their existing network.

"These new IP-enabled services are the first tangible fruits of next-generation networking," says Robert Rosenberg, Insight Research. "However, the actual revenue contributions made by all of our IP services represent just 0.9 percent of all global wireline and wireless telecommunication service revenues forecasted for 2006 and just 5.7 percent of those forecasted for 2011. Thus, while these services do indeed represent the forward edge of service delivery, their revenue impacts remain modest throughout our forecast period," Rosenberg concluded.

"IP-Based Application Services Market 2006-2011" examines spending and usage patterns for residential video telephony, fixed-mobile convergence, file sharing services, streaming services, location-based services, and presence-based services.

How Long Can The New Bull Market Last After Earnings Growth Rates Peak?

Author: Halvorson Research Associates LLC
Dateline: Wed, 20 Sep 2006

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “NAPLES, Fla. - Sept. 20 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Halvorson Research Associates LLC (HRA), an investment research company based in Naples, Fla., is studying what happens to stock prices after earnings growth rate peaks occur.”



A R T I C L E:

NAPLES, Fla. - Sept. 20 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Halvorson Research Associates LLC (HRA), an investment research company based in Naples, Fla., is studying what happens to stock prices after earnings growth rate peaks occur.

Halvorson Research Associates"After close examination," William A. Halvorson, president, said, "we discovered that prices of stocks, in general, do not automatically decline as overall earnings growth rates decrease. This is due to the fact that investors typically anticipate events and look beyond the present to future periods of earnings growth."

In May of 2005, earnings growth rates reached their highest level since the previous peak in October 2000. In Halvorson's study of 800 companies, the annual earnings growth rate reached 12.7 percent per year as compared to 8.8 percent in 2000. Other recent peaks showed 10.9 percent earnings growth rate per year in May of 1995, and 11.8 percent in January 1989.

"Negative movement in prices occurred after only one of these growth peaks," Halvorson explained. "This indicates that something else might account for the rapid decrease in prices after the October 2000 peak. The most likely factor affecting the prices investors are willing to pay for stocks is 'market sentiment.' "

HRA has developed a measurement of market sentiment - the GOPF Index of Market Sentiment - that divides sentiment readings into: Greed, Optimism, Pessimism, and Fear.

The GOPF Index was created in November of 1987 following the meltdown in prices that occurred on October 19, 1987 (-23 percent in one day) in an attempt to have some way of avoiding "investment timing" mistakes.

The GOPF Index plots actual stock prices against their theoretical values to determine which statistical range the stock market is currently in.

When stock prices exceed HRA's theoretical market prices by more than one standard deviation, HRA refers to it as: "Greed" territory. If the excess is less than one standard deviation, market sentiment is "Optimistic." When prices are within one standard deviation below expected market prices, sentiment is identified as "Pessimistic," and if more than one standard deviation below theoretical market prices - "FEAR" takes over as the predominant sentiment.

To view the entire report including the calculations of market sentiment and earnings growth rates between 1989 and now, please visit HRA's website at: www.HRAstockpicks.com or call 1-866-639-0061.

Hispanics and Other Ethnic Markets Account for One-Third of Consumer Spending on Telecommunications, says Insight Research

Author: The Insight Research Corporation
Dateline: Mon, 18 Sep 2006

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “BOONTON, N.J. - Sept 18 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- In 2006, US ethnic communities account for one-third of every dollar spent on consumer telecommunications services, according to a new market research study from The Insight Research Corporation. The largest minority group, Hispanics, representing nearly 44 percent of the U.S. minority population, spend the most. The ability to tap into the increased spending power of the Hispanic-American, African-American, and Asian-American communities will be crucial to the survival of telecommunications providers over the next five years.”

BOONTON, N.J. - Sept 18 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- In 2006, US ethnic communities account for one-third of every dollar spent on consumer telecommunications services, according to a new market research study from The Insight Research Corporation. The largest minority group, Hispanics, representing nearly 44 percent of the US minority population, spend the most. The ability to tap into the increased spending power of the Hispanic-American, African-American, and Asian-American communities will be crucial to the survival of telecommunications providers over the next five years.

Insight ResearchInsight Research's market analysis study, "US Hispanic Use of Telecommunication Services 2006-2011," takes a close look at the purchasing habits and telecom usage patterns of the Hispanic segment of the US population. The study emphasizes that the US Latino market is not one homogenous market; rather, it is made up of many markets. The study found that 68.3 percent of the overall US population owns cell phones, with White Non-Hispanics having the highest ownership rate at 71.9 percent, followed by Asians at 71.3 percent, African Americans at 68.2 percent, and Hispanics at 60.6 percent. When sub-segmenting the Hispanic market, however, Insight found that English-oriented Hispanics nearly approach the overall market penetration rate at 67.5 percent.

"The purchasing power that the Hispanic-American, African-American, and Asian-American communities exert in the telecommunications industry is not being ignored," says Robert Rosenberg, Insight Research.

"Yet the cell phone companies that now spend millions of dollars on undifferentiated Spanish-speaking advertising campaigns that blanket the Latino community have missed the boat. The Hispanic community must be addressed with nuanced messaging appropriate to its internal diversity or those cell phone carriers simply won't survive," Rosenberg concluded.

"US Hispanic Use of Telecommunication Services 2006-2011" examines spending and usage patterns of US Hispanics for wireline, cellular, and pre-paid cellular services, and compares these spending patterns to those of the general population as well as other minority segments, including Asian Americans and African Americans.

Study Shows That Allowing Grocery Stores to Sell Wine Will Save Massachusetts Consumers $26 to $36 Million Per Year

Author: YES on 1
Dateline: Wed, 23 Aug 2006

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “BOSTON, MA - Aug. 23 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- A newly released study of the Massachusetts Wine at Food Stores Initiative concluded that updating state law to allow grocery stores to sell wine would save Massachusetts consumers an estimated $26 to $36 million dollars each year. The study noted that data from the 34 other states that already allow grocery stores to sell wine show that grocery stores are as good or better than package stores at enforcing minimum drinking age laws and that competition in wine sales from grocery stores does not drive package stores out of business. ”



A R T I C L E:

BOSTON, MA - Aug. 23 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- A newly released study of the Massachusetts Wine at Food Stores Initiative concluded that updating state law to allow grocery stores to sell wine would save Massachusetts consumers an estimated $26 to $36 million dollars each year. The study noted that data from the 34 other states that already allow grocery stores to sell wine show that grocery stores are as good or better than package stores at enforcing minimum drinking age laws and that competition in wine sales from grocery stores does not drive package stores out of business.

Under an existing Massachusetts law enacted in 1934, most grocery stores are unable to get a license to sell wine - giving package stores a virtual monopoly on sales of bottled wine. The Wine at Food Stores Initiative, which will be Question 1 on the November statewide ballot, will give town and city officials the option of issuing "wine-at-food-store licenses" to qualified grocery stores. These wine-only licenses will be available to stores that carry the range of food products "typically found in a grocery store," including "meat, poultry, dairy products, eggs, fresh fruit and produce, baked goods and baking ingredients, canned goods and dessert items."

The study released today, titled "Likely Economic and Regulatory Effects of the Massachusetts Wine at Food Stores Initiative" was prepared at the request of the Massachusetts Food Association by the Northbridge Group, a Massachusetts-based national consulting firm specializing in economic, financial, and regulatory analyses.

Among the key findings of the study:

    * Package stores own the majority of the state's 2,555 existing retail store liquor licenses and currently control over 85% of off-premises wine sales in Massachusetts.

    * Because current state law protects the market power and market share of Massachusetts package stores, they can charge higher prices than stores in other states. The average wine retailer in Massachusetts sells three times more wine than the average retailer in the other 34 states where wine is also sold in grocery stores and the anti-competitive effects of current Massachusetts law increase costs to Massachusetts consumers by $26 to $36 million per year.

    * Contrary to claims made by opponents, the data shows that package stores are not driven out of business simply because local grocery stores can sell wine. Other states that allow grocery stores to sell wine currently have about twice as many retail stores selling alcoholic beverages on a per capita basis.

    * In contrast to the common image of the "small local package store," many Massachusetts package stores are large multimillion-dollar businesses. Several large package store chains have multiple locations. For example, there are 14 Kappy's liquor stores and seven Blanchard's stores in the state. In terms of revenues and locations, these large package stores and chains are larger than many grocery stores.

    * The total number of wine-at-food-store licenses issued would likely be less than 1,000 statewide. Most convenience stores do not sell the range of food products required to qualify for the new wine at food store licenses. And, it's unlikely that all of the state's 1,200 grocery stores and supermarkets would get a license, since some towns are "dry" and others typically do not grant the maximum number of licenses allowed for alcohol sales.

    * State and national statistics shows that allowing grocery stores to sell wine does not increase underage drinking violations. The data shows that grocery stores are as good or better at complying with underage drinking laws than package stores. In fact, the 34 other states that allow grocery stores to sell wine actually have no greater incidence on average of underage drinking violations than the states that don't permit grocery stores to sell wine.

"The liquor lobby and it's political allies make all kinds of wild claims as part of their scare campaign against the Wine at Food Stores Initiative because they want to protect the current package store monopoly," said Chris Flynn, President of the Massachusetts Food Association. "But as the Northbridge study clearly shows, there is really no legitimate reason why Massachusetts consumers should not have the option to buy wine at their local grocery store with their meal, just like consumers can in most other states. Voter approval of the Wine at Food Stores Initiate will update our state's antiquated law, increase consumer choice and convenience - and save Massachusetts consumers an estimated $26 to $36 million each year by reducing average prices for bottled wine."

Healthcare Industry Accelerates Wireless Adoption as Spending on all Telecommunications Services Hits $43 Billion Over Next Five Years, Says Insight Research

Author: Insight Research Corporation
Dateline: Fri, 18 Aug 2006

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “BOONTON, NJ - Aug. 18 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The $2 trillion ecosystem of hospitals, physicians, pharmaceutical companies, and insurance providers will be spending nearly $43 billion on telecommunications services over the next five years, with wireless services used by hospitals and physicians showing the fastest growth, says a new market research study released by the Insight Research Corporation.”



A R T I C L E:

BOONTON, NJ - Aug. 18 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The $2 trillion ecosystem of hospitals, physicians, pharmaceutical companies, and insurance providers will be spending nearly $43 billion on telecommunications services over the next five years, with wireless services used by hospitals and physicians showing the fastest growth, says a new market research study released by the Insight Research Corporation. Forces external to the healthcare industry, such as an aging population and worker shortages, are pushing the industry to find alternative approaches to current business practices that are expected to rely heavily on telecommunications services.

According to the report, "Telecommunications, IT, and Healthcare: Wireless Networks, Digital Healthcare and the Transformation of US Healthcare 2006-2011," much of the high costs inherent in the current system are related to the proximity of the patient and provider as well as to the archaic administrative systems used to manage records and exchange information. Telecommunications can bridge these proximity gaps as well as provide a normalized set of baseline data that can remain secure and yet be shared among healthcare workers.

Healthcare has become one of the fastest growing vertical markets for IT and telecommunications services. Insight projects that the US healthcare telecommunications services market will grow at a compounded rate of 5.4 percent, from $6.3 billion in 2006 to $8.1 billion in 2011. Spending on wireless technology is expected to grow at more than twice the overall rate.

"Population trends and advances in clinical treatment technology are pushing the healthcare industry to look at new delivery systems," says Insight Research president Robert Rosenberg. "Because the high costs inherent in the current system are related to the proximity of the patient and provider, exploiting broadband network services is a cost-effective way to reach patients where they live and pull costs out of the current healthcare system," Rosenberg concluded.

New Research Uncovers Male and Female Affluent Views on Money Matters

Author: The Oechsli Institute
Dateline: Wed, 19 Jul 2006

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “GREENSBORO, NC - July 19 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The Oechsli Institute has completed its third in a series of independent research projects on affluent Americans with at least $100,000 to over one million dollars of investable assets.”



A R T I C L E:

GREENSBORO, NC - July 19 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The Oechsli Institute has completed its third in a series of independent research projects on affluent Americans with at least $100,000 to over one million dollars of investable assets. "Millions of Americans who once made up the vast middle of the $7 trillion consumer market are migrating upscale towards premium and luxury products and services," observes Matt Oechsli, President of the Oechsli Institute, a consulting firm specializing in understanding the needs and wants of affluent Americans.

Oechsli pierces the male ego by stating, "When it comes to money, affluent women are smarter than men." Which is why Oechsli suggests the financial services industry needs to adjust their approach in how they market and advertise their products and services, and how they train their financial professionals.

For example:
    * 87% of working women versus 72% of working men are concerned with minimizing taxes: women have more financial brains!

    * 74% of affluent women versus 60% of affluent men are concerned with protection against serious financial loss: hello Katrina - women do have more financial brains!

    * 29% of affluent men versus 36% of affluent women report being influenced by current financial services advertising; women are more interested than men. Are financial services firms sending the wrong message?

    * Nearly two-thirds (62%) of affluent Americans, men and women, are interested in having a "go-to" financial professional, yet only 17% of men have one. The financial services industry must get personal - and women (26%) act on their financial concerns better than men.

    * Working affluent men (72%) and working affluent women (89%) are interested in having a financial plan, yet only 47% of working affluent men and 60% of working affluent women currently use a financial planner. The financial services industry is missing the mark - and once again women are smarter than men.

    * While 43% of affluent men and 33% of affluent women use online sources for assistance with financial decisions, only 9% (men and women) trust online investment advice. Watch-out, this trust factor is likely to rise.


The research highlights 8 critical areas of concern for both affluent American men and women, which should signal a change in how the financial services industry advertises and distributes its financial products and services.

    1. Formal financial plan

    2. Clear understanding of personal & family goals

    3. Proper asset allocation

    4. Full disclosure of fees & commissions

    5. Use of other financial experts

    6. Organization of financial papers

    7. Personal & timely contact

    8. Avoidance of technical jargon


Not only do women rule, but it is obvious that they want a relationship with a financial professional who they can trust. It is also obvious that affluent Americans, male and female, do not know where to find this trustworthy "go-to" financial professional.

About the Company:

The Oechsli Institute (www.oechsli.com) conducts ongoing research on consumer trends, specifically the affluent and emerging affluent segments of the population. Matt Oechsli, the President of the Oechsli Institute, is a sought after keynote speaker and coach on how to market and sell to the affluent. He has authored 8 books; his most recent is "The Art of Selling to the Affluent," which has been adopted by Sotheby's as part of their graduate studies program.

Private lines are point-to-point circuits leased by enterprises from telecommunications carriers in order to link enterprise sites to each other and to the Internet.”

BOONTON, NJ - July 14 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- After years of contraction, the market for private line services began growing again in 2006, signaling the start of a long anticipated recovery in this $36 billion telecommunications segment, says a market analysis study from Insight Research. Private lines are point-to-point circuits leased by enterprises from telecommunications carriers in order to link enterprise sites to each other and to the Internet.

According to Insight's report, Private Line and Wavelength Services 2006-2011, continued growth in the segment will come as a result of the strong demand for private lines to support new teleco video services, and as a consequence of industry consolidations that have created price stability in the marketplace for the first time since 2000. In the study, Insight reports that from 2006 to 2011 the overall private line market will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.2 percent, reaching $44.1 billion in revenue by 2011.

"For the first time in several years, the prospects for the private line industry are looking up," says Insight president Robert Rosenberg. "Private lines will have a role to play in the distribution of video content, and all the recent merger activity we've witnessed has led to a more stable pricing environment. Price cutting was endemic a few years ago, but now we are seeing pricing that looks sustainable," Rosenberg concluded.

Private Line and Wavelength Services 2006-2011 evaluates the total private line market and segments by local and long distance private line service revenue, wholesale and retail private line revenue, revenue by type of carrier, revenue by T1, T3 or OC-n circuit class, as well as the number of T1, T3, and OC-n private lines sold.

Market Acceptance of Grid Computing Continues As the Technology Enters Commercial Mainstream, says Insight Research

Dateline: Thu, 22 Jun 2006

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “BOONTON, NJ - June 22 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Grid computing has penetrated well beyond the large research institutions that first developed the techniques required to virtualize computing resources and has entered the early adoption phase of mainstream commercial computing, says a new market research study released by the Insight Research Corporation.”

BOONTON, NJ - June 22 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Grid computing has penetrated well beyond the large research institutions that first developed the techniques required to virtualize computing resources and has entered the "early adoption" phase of mainstream commercial computing, says a new market research study released by the Insight Research Corporation. Grid computing, a type of distributed system, makes it possible to share computing resources across networks, creating what amounts to virtual super computers.

According to the report, "Grid Computing: A Vertical Market Perspective 2006-2011," Insight estimates worldwide grid spending will grow from $1.8 billion in 2006 to approximately $24.5 billion in 2011. Grid spending was examined in 14 vertical industries, with much of the early adopter spending concentrated in the manufacturing and financial services industries.

While spending on grid technology is expected to increase at a compounded rate of almost 70 percent over the forecast period, the technology today is still very much in an early adoption phase. Most IT organizations have built their initial commercial implementation behind a firewall at a single corporate site.

"Though large telecommunications firms, including BT and Telefonica, have selected a grid middleware software partner to build out their service delivery capabilities, and a number of startups in grid have received venture capital, grid is still new to many IT organizations," says Insight Research president Robert Rosenberg. "The technology is still seeking widespread acceptance because using grid computing software is still a challenge, and the dominant standards remain somewhat unstable," Rosenberg concluded.

Three Telecommunications Networks Now Thrive, But Only One to Survive, Says Insight Research

Author: Insight Research Corporation
Dateline: Tue, 13 Jun 2006

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “BOONTON, NJ - June 13 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The wireless, Internet and phone networks that presently comprise the global telecommunications infrastructure will generate nearly $1.2 trillion in revenue this year, but according to a new market analysis report from Insight Research, there is a very real possibility that by the close of 2011 one of the three networks may come to dominate the others and thereby change the telecommunications revenue picture completely.”

BOONTON, NJ - June 13 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The wireless, Internet and phone networks that presently comprise the global telecommunications infrastructure will generate nearly $1.2 trillion in revenue this year, but according to a new market analysis report from Insight Research, there is a very real possibility that by the close of 2011 one of the three networks may come to dominate the others and thereby change the telecommunications revenue picture completely.

In this market research study, Insight examines three possible scenarios for future telecom revenue and subscriber growth: the three current networks evolve along current trajectories; the Internet comes to dominate all communications; or wireless communications dominate all communications. The study projects revenue and subscriber growth for each scenario over time.

According to the study, "The Future of Telecommunications 2006-2011," each scenario for future growth is based upon a shared set of verities: continuing growth in communications usage; users expecting greater flexibility and lower prices for their communications services, and spectacular near-term growth of video and other image services. For each scenario, the study also evaluates the impact of technology, regulatory, and business issues such as assets and depreciation, revenue growth or declines, and the impact of competition.

Each scenario yields a very different picture of subscriber and revenue growth for narrowband and broadband wireless and wireline services in each global region, though only $752 billion dollars of revenue separated the scenario with the greatest revenue potential from the scenario that generated the least revenue over the five year period.

"This study imagines the future of the telecommunication industry using a premise that everyone has considered: what if the Internet or my wireless provider is the only way I communicate five years from now? What would that mean for the worldwide communications industry?" asks Insight Research president Robert Rosenberg. "In this study, we develop detailed scenarios to describe how the worldwide telecommunications landscape will change. Surprisingly, there are not tectonic shifts in revenue-though subscriber growth and profitability were indeed vastly different," Rosenberg concluded.
