$1 trillion to be spent on next-generation networks, says ABI Research

Network operators are slowly rolling out all-IP next-generation networks (NGN), according to a new ABI Research brief.

The move to an Internet Protocol-based infrastructure is a natural evolution for the fixed network as broadband services, including Voice over IP, take over from the Public Switched Telephone Network.

Mobile networks have a parallel evolution to IP (although at a slower pace), but the standards work is accelerating. By the end of 2007, there will be full next-generation network (NGN) standards for fixed and mobile networks, allowing IP-based services to be deployed on NGN.
ABI Research analysts expect the $1 trillion deployment to be mostly done by 2015. IPTV bandwidth requirements and the desire to control operating costs by moving services over an IP network will drive the deployment, according to ABI Research.
