This report presents a summary and analysis of the market for IT&T equipment suppliers around the world as it stood one year after the industry collapse which began in 2000. It reviews the events of the dot.com crash and critically evaluates the behaviour of industry participants and the flow-on effects of market valuations. These flow-on effects are noted at the market level, including the impact on competition and product development, and also at the company level where staff and executive salaries are high profile. Several of the major equipment supply companies are also included here, spanning the telephony, data infrastructure, mobile and IT industries.
Paul, May I congratulate you on a very successful and enjoyable afternoon with the Minister. In providing the roundtable discussions between government and industry, it highlighted the strong interest by stakeholders in Broadband and its implementation but it also presented us with other issues and opportunities that we need to address.
Dominic Schipano, CITT
