Archived report. This report was archived in 2010 and has not been updated since. The most important outcome of the convergence between telecommunication, media and IT is that the market is rapidly changing from stand-alone content and services (telephone, television, newspapers, radio) to multimedia (integrated content) applications and multimodal services (content delivered to various devices). This report provides BuddeComm analyses and discussion of potential industry business models for the emerging services, including Triple Play.
