Australia - Telecommunications Equipment Market - Market Developments


The telecommunications hardware manufacturers rose and fell with the demand rise and fall of the 2000 dot com boom and bust. This happened in the USA, Europe, and Australia was also affected. Investments in this sector have never been great in Australia, and the country remains an IT consumer, notwithstanding the power of Telstra, Optus and their brethren. This report notes the latest projects from Telstra and Optus, and points out how the market has performed in recent years. Trends and opportunities are highlighted for organisations to research and consider.
