Frost & Sullivan Recognizes China Entercom 2009 IP VPN Solution of the Year
SHANGHAI, Nov. 23 /PRNewswire/ — Frost & Sullivan Best Practice Award-2009 IP VPN Solution of the Year is presented to China Entercom Company (China Entercom) at Frost & Sullivan Enterprise Communication Summit and Award Ceremony 2009 on 4th, November 2009. This award is in recognition of China Entercom’s remarkable efforts toward the development of the market.
Telecommunications networks are moving toward platforms based around Internet Protocol to substitute private or proprietary networks. From early 2000 to present, telephone and computer networks are merging into one network, since IP technology can sustain voice and data necessities. Additionally, any technologies that transport propriety data and private conversation through the Internet must be secure. Therefore, the network security industry has developed Virtual Private Networks to secure data as it traverses through the Internet.
According to Frost & Sullivan’s research, Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a way of simulating a private network over a public one such as the Internet. It is considered virtual because it depends on, not a physical connection, but on the use of electronic packets of data routed throughout the network on an ad hoc basis. It can create secure virtual connections between two clients, between a client and a network, or between two networks. VPNs use several technologies in order to protect the data travelling through the network. By the end of 2009, worldwide revenues of the SSL VPN market will grow to an estimated $779.3 million with sales of an estimated 97,949 units. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2008 to 2013 is 24.2 percent for revenue and 35.0 percent for units, which is a reflection of 2008′s prediction of continued increases in industry competition that is likely to yield consolidation, price decreases, and increased features and deployment innovation.
For the Enterprise that has many branches in different countries and locations, the expense on long distance calls and international calls is uncontrollable and difficult to budget. Catering for the needs, China Entercom provides the Voice VPN Service to give customers the ability to make calls and fax documents to other on-net sites unlimitedly with fixed monthly charges, so finance directors or administrators have ways to control and budget for internal voice communications expenses. China Entercom CeBizConnect Internet connects the global private network to the public Internet through one managed gateway. Using China Entercom CeBizConnect Service, customers can share the router and local loop of the CeBizConnect to access the Internet. That means the clients have no additional cost for the CPE router and local access.
