Triple Play Requirements Help Drive EMEA Router Growth

EMEA Router Market Increases 8 Percent in Q1 2005 According to Synergy Research Group

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 16, 2005 -- According to Synergy Research Group's latest report, "Q1 2005 Router Equipment EMEA Market Shares," the EMEA Router market increased 7.5 percent year over year. Incredible growth in the number of broadband subscribers and the new services that Carriers offer are creating new demands in Service Provider Core and Edge routers.

"Carriers looking to offer triple-play services are realizing that their current infrastructures cannot handle high-scalability issues," said Ray Mota, Principal Analyst for Synergy Research Group. "They need new Core and Edge Routers that have the features and capabilities to handle these new services, like IPTV and IP-VPNs."
