Growth Opportunities in Global Smart Grid Market 2012-2017: Trends, Forecast, and Market Share Analysis

NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Growth Opportunities in Global Smart Grid Market 2012-2017: Trends, Forecast, and Market Share Analysis http://www.reportlinker.com/p01029657/Growth-Opportunities-in-Global-Smart-Grid-Market-2012-2017-Trends-Forecast-and-Market-Share-Analysis.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Energy_technology Background: The global smart grid market has grown steadily over the last five years and is expected to continue its growth momentum during 2012-2017. The market is forecast to reach approximately US $64.3 billion by 2017 with a CAGR of 17% over the next five years. Asia Pacific (APAC) is anticipated to lead the market due to greater generation potential and an increase in consumption rates in that region. Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has analyzed the global smart grid market and presents its findings in "Growth Opportunities in Global Smart Grid Market 2012-2017: Trends, Forecast, and Market Share Analysis." As indicated by the study, the North America region emerged as the leading smart grid consumer in value, replacing Europe, where smart grid projects initially were implemented and with comparable growth rates. Economic recession and sharp declines in most US market segments resulted in a decrease in growth rates in 2008. Globally, the smart grid market grew until 2008, but a huge drop in 2009 caused its progress to be much lower than worldwide GDP growth. Overall, the global smart grid market growth rate declined by half post-2008 compared to 2006-2008. In 2008, due to the impact of global recession, investments in smart grid decreased considerably along with revenue. After 2008, many new players entered the market, which contributed to the increase in market size by the end of 2011. Research by Lucintel indicates that in APAC countries such as Japan, Korea, and China, smart grid development began more recently. Rest of the World (ROW) nations such as Australia and Brazil usually import smart grid components from APAC and Europe. Growth rates for 2006-2008 were higher for North America and Europe, although after the global economic recession, the growth rates in APAC and ROW surpassed these regions. The report, which provides trend scenarios and forecast statistics for 2012-2017, details industry drivers and challenges; compares properties and prices; highlights major smart grid suppliers, describes various smart grid properties and manufacturing processes; and more. This unique report from Lucintel is expected to provide you valuable information, insights, and tools needed to identify new growth opportunities and operate your business successfully in this market. This report is estimated to save hundreds of hours of your own personal research time and is anticipated to significantly help in expanding your business in this market.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
