Service providers expect next gen mobile and wireless service revenue to more than double by 2008

Service providers expect next gen mobile and wireless service revenue to more than double by 2008

LONDON -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 04/10/07 -- Competition has become even more cutthroat among next gen mobile and wireless broadband service providers, says Infonetics Research in a new study about North American, European, and Asia Pacific operators.

The study, "Service Provider Plans for Next Gen Mobile and Wireless Broadband," shows 65% of providers rating competition and customer retention as the most challenging of their business concerns.

As competition increases, the contest becomes focused on the range of services offered rather than price, so creating new services is key to driving revenue, says Infonetics.

"Beyond basic voice and access services, mobile and wireless operators are focusing on increasingly popular mobile TV and interactive video services like chat and blogging. Video-based services represent a golden opportunity for operators to diversify their offerings and boost ARPU, but new media services present business model issues as well as technical challenges like streaming and download capabilities," said Richard Webb, directing analyst at Infonetics Research.

Service providers indicate confidence in the new services they plan to offer, with participants in the study saying they expect revenue from next gen mobile services to increase 121% on average.

Capex among respondents jumps 21% between 2006 and 2008, from an average of $2.8 billion to $3.4 billion, a sign that providers are investing heavily to continue upgrading mobile infrastructure to 3G and on toward 4G.

Report Highlights

--  Fixed mobile convergence and integrating new wireless technologies
    were the top-rated technical challenges to offering wireless broadband and
    next gen mobile services
--  75% of respondents plan to offer mobile video and mobile TV services
    by 2008 -- more than double the number offering them now
--  43% use a content aggregator for mobile video services now; this grows
    to 56% by 2008
--  IMS is far and away the lead reference architecture for packet control
    planes, with 54% already having deployed it and 92% planning to by 2008
--  Fixed WiMAX, mobile WiMAX, and HSDPA, HSUPA deployments by respondents
    all grow over the next year

    to 45% by 2008
--  Ericsson, Nokia-Siemens, and Alcatel-Lucent are the top-rated vendors
    of infrastructure for mobile networks, followed by Nortel and Cisco
    

Infonetics' study surveys service providers planning to offer next gen mobile (3G), WiFi, WiMAX/4G, and emerging wireless broadband services, and examines the impact that the IMS architecture will have on their networks.

The study was developed to help next gen mobile and wireless broadband equipment manufacturers understand the current state and strategic direction of service provider infrastructure for offering mobile and wireless broadband services, and the extent to which service providers expect to purchase products in the next year.

The study examines deployment plans, drivers, barriers, IMS and FMC strategy, subscribers, handsets, network architecture, regulatory concerns, service and application offerings, manufacturer and brand awareness, mobile and wireless broadband services revenue, expenditures for radio access networks (RAN), wireless broadband, and mobile core equipment, and more.

"We provide DevOps solutions. We also partner with some key players in the DevOps space and we use the technology that we partner with to engineer custom solutions for different organizations," stated Himanshu Chhetri, CTO of Addteq, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

I’m told that it has been 21 years since Scrum became public when Jeff Sutherland and I presented it at an Object-Oriented Programming, Systems, Languages & Applications (OOPSLA) workshop in Austin, TX, in October of 1995. Time sure does fly. Things mature. I’m still in the same building and at the same company where I first formulated Scrum.[1] Initially nobody knew of Scrum, yet it is now an open source body of knowledge translated into more than 30 languages[2] People use Scrum worldwide for ...
Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of being...
As the race for the presidency heats up, IT leaders would do well to recall the famous catchphrase from Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 campaign against George H. W. Bush: “It’s the economy, stupid.” That catchphrase is important, because IT economics are important. Especially when it comes to cloud. Application performance management (APM) for the cloud may turn out to be as much about those economics as it is about customer experience.
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

Synthetic monitoring is hardly a new technology. It’s been around almost as long as the commercial World Wide Web has. But the importance of monitoring the performance and availability of a web application by simulating users’ interactions with that application, from around the globe, has never been more important. We’ve seen prominent vendors in the broad APM space add this technology with new development or partnerships just in the last 18 months.
Updating DevOps to the latest production data slows down your development cycle. Probably it is due to slow, inefficient conventional storage and associated copy data management practices. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in Product and Solution at Tintri, will talk about DevOps and cloud-focused storage to update hundreds of child VMs (different flavors) with updates from a master VM in minutes, saving hours or even days in each development cycle. He will also...

A lot of time, resources and energy has been invested over the past few years on de-siloing development and operations. And with good reason. DevOps is enabling organizations to more aggressively increase their digital agility, while at the same time reducing digital costs and risks. But as 2017 approaches, the hottest trends in DevOps aren’t specifically about dev or ops. They’re about testing, security, and metrics.
2016 has been an amazing year for Docker and the container industry. We had 3 major releases of Docker engine this year , and tremendous increase in usage. The community has been following along and contributing amazing Docker resources to help you learn and get hands-on experience. Here’s some of the top read and viewed content for the year. Of course releases are always really popular, particularly when they fit requests we had from the community.
Hardware virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand. Docker Containers are the next quantum leap - Are they?! Databases always represented an additional set of challenges unique to running workloads requiring a maximum of I/O, network, CPU resources combined with data locality.
