      For those who made it to CES this year, you will have noticed this powerful trend: the PC, the TV, the Internet and the home are converging in a very real way. Real products launched into the market don’t just blur the lines between TV and PC, but in fact make it increasingly clear that any screen is fair game for any content, and the service will come from both broadcast, unicast, and from within the home.

      Of course, screens and media are just a part of the Connected Home. Media sharing,

      For over a decade, Korea has been a stand-out leader in the creation and adoption of ICT (Internet, Communication, and Technology). Korea has the longest history of mobile WiMAX, 3G, mobile video, ringtones, mobile apps, mobile music and many other leading wireless solutions. They have the world’s highest penetration of home broadband, and a highly competitive fixed telecom space which is rapidly integrating with the mobile networks.

      94043

      Now that the mobile consumer has arrived, the pressure is on content creators, aggregators and distributors to deliver a business model that works. Mobile Entertainment, a "promising" market for years, has traditionally failed to deliver. We've been hearing about the upcoming explosion of mobile video for half a decade, but the unicast/capacity and broadcast/control paradoxes have prevented success. Mobile music hasn't taken off due to carrier control, rights issues, high prices, and

      One of the biggest ongoing challenges for telecom entrepreneurs is navigating the shifting, complex ecosystem. With no single model for success, our entrepreneurs have to make and remake strategic decisions to refine their business model and keep pace with change.

      They're called handsets, terminals, phones, handies, mobiles, smartphones, and a bunch of other colorful names, and they're the place where the industry meets the customer. As the delivery vehicle, handsets are a critical part of EVERY industry stakeholder's value chain.

      In recent years, handsets have proven the unique ability to actually churn customers away from competing carriers. That makes them more powerful than network quality, footprint, content, and services. And this

      The booming consumer markets of India and China offer untold opportunity for the right investors.

      GSMA Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona is the biggest wireless tradeshow in the world.

That's why the Telecom Council puts together these roundtable events after large tradeshows - so our members can share what they learned, what they saw, and their opinions of the overall trends that made an impression on them - in the context of telecom.

      App Stores were the big story for 2009, and growth and interest in that sector is sure to continue through 2010. But there are definite fractures in the generic app store's foundations. The developers of mobile content are increasingly voicing growing dissatisfaction over likely obscurity, hyper-competition, shrinking margins, and that same bug-bear once again - fragmentation.

Now that they are increasingly involved in telecom, both fixed and mobile, we are hearing more and more about them from the Telecom Council community.

      Radical changes and corrections in the venture industry have left some telecom entrepreneurs wondering whether now is the right time to launch their businesses. In parallel to a contraction in venture capital, we saw an increase in telecom startups over 2009. Our panel will give their opinions on:

Mobile Banking gets lumped in the same discussion with credit card NFC dongles or stickers - none of which particularly interests us here at the Telecom Council!

            While IIoT is more demanding than consumer IoT - with data security requirements, physical security, long life-cycles, and significant CapEx - the ROI is relatively massive potentially saving millions of dollars in operational efficiency from better data, better decisions, and faster responsiveness. That's why industrial users are willing to invest $500B on Industrial IoT (IIoT) solutions by 2020. Join this month to meet startups, demos, case studies, and experts in the IIoT segment.

            In the Internet of Things, a robot can be a connected "thing" and controlled from the Internet. But it gets much more interesting when those connected robotics establish connections with other "things." From there, imagine those connections extending from Local Area to Wide Area connections. Despite technical issues, the integration of robots within the IoT can offer great advantages in many fields, and both entrepreneurs and investors are committed to this segment.

            Open source platforms and technologies may have significant impact on the cost of operating telecom networks. Besides potentially lowering the cost to a point where rural coverage makes sense, open source can take full advantage of white box trends, virtualization, and software-defined networking to reduce the cost and OpEx of a fixed and cellular network for deployment in underdeveloped regions, and could possibly bleed back into conventional markets.
