News of important industry event

New chapter or analysis

  • Australia - M2M and The Internet of Things

    With the NBN and LTE now well and truly underway it is important to look at what will be the real value of this new infrastructure. The infrastructure that is now being built offers a range of features such as ubiquitousness, affordability, low latency, high speed and high capacity.

  • Australia - Smart and Connected Transport

    Smart transport systems, or intelligent transport systems, encompass a range of wireless and wired communications-based information technologies that can be integrated into transportation infrastructure and vehicles.

  • Australia - Smart Cities, Smart Infrastructure

    The development of smart cities and indeed smart countries require vision and recognition of the fact that many of today’s social, economic and sustainability problems can only be solved with the assistance of ICT.

  • Peru - Mobile Infrastructure, Broadband, Operators - Statistics and Analyses

    Although Peru’s mobile penetration is below the regional average, it measures up favourably with the country’s GDP per capita, which is comparatively lower. Nevertheless, the country’s penetration data hides the fact that about one quarter of the population has no mobile phone at all, while many Peruvians – especially urban dwellers – have multiple mobile subscriptions.

  • Australia - The Networking Economy

    The digital economy began to take hold a decade or so ago, and some organisations were fast to react to it, while others were slow. The naysayers saw the impact of the internet on their business as a fad that would soon fade away; others, such as Google, Amazon, Facebook and Yahoo, saw it as the new business model.

  • Australia - Digital Media - Gaming and Gambling

  • Mexico - Mobile Infrastructure, Broadband, Operators - Statistics and Analyses

  • Australia - National Broadband Network - Developments and Analyses 2015

  • Australia - Digital Economy - E-Health - Pilots and Projects

    Progress in e-health developments in Australia remains slow and low key. Unlike the USA for instance, where e-health is driven by health insurance companies and private health care organisations, the developments in Australia largely depend on government initiatives.

  • Australia - Cloud Computing

    In the late 1990’s BuddeComm started talking about the great potential of Application Service Providers (ASPs) but, together with the data centres, they were dunked in the dotcom crisis. Even then we indicated that the concept was sound and that it had great potential.

  • Costa Rica - Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband and Digital Media - Statistics and Analyses

    ICE merges Cable Visión with Kölbi brand Since Costa Rica’s telecom sector was liberalised it has shown considerable growth in the number of subscribers for all services.

  • Australia - Smart Energy - Trends and Analyses - 2015

    With a better understanding of the complexity involved in the transformation of the electricity industry the words ‘smart or future energy’ are becoming more prominent.

  • Australia - Big Data

    BuddeComm describes ‘big data’ as looking at intelligent outcomes that can be achieved from data collaboration. The most critical issue here is strategic management, rather than technology. However the fact that big data has become a vital tool in competition is forcing many companies to transform their organisations from a company-centric approach to a customer-centric one.
