NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:Telecom Network Infrastructure Vendor Market 2012 - 2016

The report also provides insights into threats and opportunities regarding infrastructure offerings.Target Audience:
