Internet Research Group Publishes New Research
On Network Compression Products

Los Altos, Calif., March 17, 2002 – Internet Research Group (IRG) of Los Altos, California today announced the publication of its latest research study titled, “Bandwidth Optimization, Today’s Network Compression Market.”

“Data communications compression is an old idea that has assumed a new and innovative position as network connectivity plays an increasingly important role in the day-to-day operation of most businesses,” noted Peter Christy, co-founder of IRG and co-author of the report. “Modern compression products help enterprises reduce the cost and improve the performance of network-enabled applications and services, and in some cases are the enabling technology that makes it possible to deploy an important application.”

This new study details the remarkably diverse set of technologies and solutions that enterprises can now use as the upgrade and re-engineer their wide-area network.

Today’s category of dual ended IP network compression products started to emerge in 1999 and has grown to over 10,000 installed units today. This study, Bandwidth Optimization, Today’s Network Compression Market, for the first time presents the market share split across vendors in this space and provides a five year forecast for compression unit shipments and revenues.
